Consistency: Typical and Characteristic of Carrier Oils.
Absorption: Absorbs into skin at average speed, slight oil feeling left on skin.
Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of up to 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration after opening is recommended. Please refer to the Certificate of Analysis for current Best Before Date.
Cautions: None Known.

Rating: I bought 1 gallon of this oil for soap making. I was very apprehensive to buy because I thought I was going to end up with something that smelled awful and would make my soaps hideous. I chose to buy it however, because it is cheaper and richer in nutrients than its refined counterpart. Yes, it has a earthy scent to it. I did not find the smell as strong as other unrefined products I've used. It's definitely bearable. If you're looking to make "white" bars of soaps though, this is probably not the oil to use. This oil is a deep green color, which will affect the color of your soap depending on how much you use. I soaped with it at 20% and my soap is a cornmeal yellow-like color. My soap is still curing but I'm very excited to see and use the final product!
Rating: I have eczema, this hemp oil Very good for my skin. no eczema anymore recently! Thank you!

Rating: I love this oil, I just wish it wasn't so quick to go rancid. I use it sparingly in body butters and soaps, and even a little makes a big difference in conditioning.
By:Suni, Lehigh Acres, Florida Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 16-Nov-2012
Rating: Excellent quality, color, scent and texture so far hands down! My eczema clients have something to look forward too. Makes the best herbal blends and the color is fantastic.
Thank You ND, you have yet to disappoint ;)
Rating: I've never used hemp seed oil before but I've known of it's healing abilities so I decided to give it a try. It also doesn't hurt to have a few customers asking why I've never used it in anything. It has a beautiful dark green color to it that thins out once it's added to another oil or ingredient. It also has a very strong earthy scent, which is pleasant on it's own but I found out that it does not marry well with the cucumber melon fragrance I have, but marries beautifully with lavender. I am very pleased with the oil. After a couple weeks of using a salve I made (with the hemp seed as the hero), my irritated tattoo has calmed down and my cracked heels are almost soft again! I can't wait to introduce this to my customers.. It's fantastic!
Rating: mixed with the goat's milk melt and pour 10% with some fo and small amout of French clay to round out coloring and came out with most amazing bath bar...washed a friends tired, dry diabetic feet and legs...the result was amazing...soft skin no longer with patches of dry dead skin, soft and smelled good too!
By:Ruth, Anderson, Indiana Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 02-Apr-2010
Rating: this oil is excellent for herbal creams. it has a lovely consistancy. I do think i will try organic next time though.
Rating: Love the hemp oil. Works wonders on the skin and is especially great for eczema. Does have a green smell to it which comes through mildly in my body butter if left unscented. but I Love it. Definitively will be getting more.
Rating: Hemp seed oil is amazing!! Everyone who hears hemp is in my soap bars go crazy! It's perfect for your skin and hair because it's full of omega fatty acids. I use this hemp oil for eczema and it really works! I use it on my hair and my curls become shiny and well-managed. Hemp oil also gives your soap a lovely light green color. All in all, it's wonderful for everything--lip balms, hair conditioners, lotions, soaps. Definitely recommended!!

Rating: This oil has a nice subtle earthy/grassy smell to it. It is a great rich and nourishing oil. Great price too!
By:Jeni, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This oil has a greenish colour and works really well in my hand cream that I make for my husband who has eczema. The earthy smell is slight and pleasant. Great price for a great oil.

Rating: I love the color. The scent isn't strong. Worked very nice!
By:Kat, Cody, Wyoming Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Sep-2011
Rating: This lent a nice light green color to my soap bars. I used about 10% of it in my soap recipe, and that might be a bit too much, but this oil is highly recommended for a host of skin conditions (so I wanted to be generous with it). It also smells really good and earthy in soap.... Very nutty. I bought this in a smaller size and then came back for more. The oil can be used directed on the face and hair. It's amazing.
By:Steven, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Dec-2011
Rating: The Alpha And Omega of oils! Hemp oil uses are only limited to your imagination. A MUST EXPERIENCE! Indispensable additive included in ALL my formulations. A must have for all those suffering from eczema. I have seen results that only can be described as miraculous. The ability of this oil to promote new skin growth..incredible! Wounds, small cuts, abrasions, insect bites, etc...helps them all, many times without scab formation. Their are no type of skin it is not useful, from infant to the aging. A friend experienced a motor cycle accident losing 1st and 2nd layers of epidermis. After two to three daily applications saw his skin return to normal without any noticeable scarring. Amazing results! An invaluable investment for anyone whom cares for the health of their skin.There are certainly more expensive oils marketed but few perform as Cannabis sativa (hemp) seed oil. Product+Price+Customer Service= A GREAT COMPANY..New Directions, you are the best!
By:James, Seattle, Washington Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Jun-2009
Rating: This is a wonderful oil, very earthy as one customer said. I used it in lip balm and whipped body butter and am looking forward to experimenting further.
By:Dieta, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I absolutely love this oil. I use it in almost everything. I infuse the oil with calendula flowers and rose petals as a base for my healing creams and lip balms and I also use it directly on my hair. I'm 37 and I started using it in my hair about 3 months ago and it has grown almost 6 inches!!! A little goes a long way in the hair though, so too much will give you a "wet look" all day.

Rating: I love getting this oil from NDA. Their price is amazing! I prefer unrefined over refined cause it leaves a lovely green tint to my creams and lends a helping hand to my green colored soaps. Plus when I think hemp oil I think green! This oil is thicker and is wonderful in heavy creams and whipped mousses. It does have a nutty almost fresh cut grass smell to it but I've never had a problem covering the scent! This oil does wonders for the skin! I completely recommend this oil to anyone considering it!
By:Heather, Colorado Springs, Colorado Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Aug-2009
Rating: Love it the smell isnt overpowering to me. I use it in my hair products. Especially once you add your fragrance you wont smell anything but the fragrance. It is def unrefined because it isnt filtered
By:Shana, New York, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Apr-2010
Rating: This is a great unrefined hemp. Distinctive hemp coloring and scent. I use it in soaps and people just love it. Great prices on hemp too. Thanks NDA.
By:Juanita, East Burke, Vermont Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Sep-2008
Rating: Definitely unrefined! Has a wonderful earthy smell with a slight to medium combination of the "Mary Jane' smell...not overpowering, but you can definitely smell it. beautiful color and I put a few drops in my astringent with a good shake, because it is kind of heavy, but it didn't make my face oily at all (I have very oily skin). My mouth dropped at the size of the bottle. I said to myself, "this is huge and for this inexpensive price..." Not bad in lotions either. Thanks NDA!
Rating: This stuff is fantastic. The price is amazing. NDA, there is nothing in my endless searching that compares in price & quality!
By:Stephanie, Orillia, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Nice, definitely unrefined, oil. Very dark in color. Looks black in the bottle. This is a good thing! Most definitely has a marijuana Mary smell to it. Not *that* heavy, but it's there. I like the smell. Nice and earthy, deep. Have used it on my face tonight to see how well it works just overnight. Will definitely be using quite a bit of this. Glad I ordered a fair bit.
By:Sandra, Surrey, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I use this unrefined hemp oil in many of my massage blends and healing creams. It is an amazing healing agent and skin just loves it. It is also absolutely amazing on natural wood furniture. Really, just a little buffed in will keep wood beautiful for weeks and weeks. Try it sometime! ...of course that's just a side benefit. Thank you ND for amazing products. You make it possible to really help people on a comprehensive scale! g
Rating: I love the way this oil smells and looks. The scent is very earthy, nutty, and as green as the oil iteself. Is green a scent? If it was, this is exactly how I would imagine green would smell. I especially love this oil blended with patchouli EO, a touch of lemon EO, and amber resin.
This oil absorbs very well into the skin, and leaves it feeling silky, glowing, and supple. Very nice...and as always, NDA has a great competitive price on this oil.

By:Mark, Sydney, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love the dark color of this unrefined hemp seed oil, and I couldn't find a better price than NDA anywhere else. I use this in cold process soaps, and customers love the way it feels on their skin - very conditioning. The unrefined hemp will give your soap a greenish tint, which I like for some of bars. I buy the refined hemp when I don't want the green coloration.
Rating: It took me a while to get used to the smell of this oil, but it actually kind of grew on me. Good stuff!

Rating: Unrefined oils like this one can add fun natural colors to CP soaps when used in large quantities. I like the smell -- it's nutty and deep, very earthy.
By:Shama, Houston, Texas Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Jan-2008
Rating: I am thrilled with this wholesome oil, and using it to enrich my massage oil blends and soaps.
Think: Dirty Hippie Soap with hemp and patchouli - yum!
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I like using this.. Works great in soaps and in lotion. Very soothing. The scent isn't too bad, a bit of lawn grass mixed with cannibas smell. I don't find it offensive or overwhelming. Very healing.

Rating: I LOVE this oil! Hemp is a great oil that doesn't get the recognition it deserves. I use this to make my hemp soap and people LOVE it!! I also use this for hot oil hair treatments and on my daughter's skin after a sun burn. It's a very nourishing, healing oil imo.
