Rating: I'm impressed. I've used hemp oil in the place of sweet almond in a couple of recipes and I love it. I love the way it soaks in and does not leave an oily feeling behind, it just soaks right in. I mixed it with meadowfoam seed oil, vit e oil, and lavender eo oil for a night oil and love the results. I use this oil after my witch hazel toner. Thank you for DNA for another high quality product at a good price.

Rating: I was worried about the smell of this product after some of the reviews, but it's not a heavy scented oil at all. Has a slight nuttiness to it with a hint of fresh cut grass. I do not mind the smell at all. But forget about the smell anyway because the oil is amazing for just about everything. Leaves my skin glowing and petal soft. I personally use this in an OCM mix and as a moisturizer all on its own. I almost feel like tossing everything else i have for my face out the window and just keep this in a bottle by the sink. Even my husband loves this stuff and uses it straight out of the bottle on his dry hands. My new favourite oil hands down.

Rating: A bit more oily than I expected, but that is honestly my only complaint. I use this in every recipe I make. Personally, I love the feel of the oil and something about hemp just feels right for me (not a smoker, but see potential in hemp as an all-purpose agricultural staple). My clients dig it as well. Thanks guys.

Rating: I have used this in my bath bombs, and I like it. It's a nice light oil, similar in consistency to grapeseed oil, and doesn't leave a film around the bath tub.
By:Gidget, Ajax, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I use this hemp when I want the feel of hemp, without the scent or coloring of the unrefined. Best prices around for top quality hemp.

Rating: LOVE this oil... can't make my body butter without it! very smooth
By:Leeann, Grand Valley, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Wow! Hemp is one of my most popular oils! I keep getting request and great responses about it. I use it in hair oils and to add colour to other clear carrier oils. Unrefined hemp oil has a rich green colour and subtle scent--"5 STARS!"
By:Nattassia, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: My rehabilitation clinic makes an anti-inflammatory analgesic massage oil using hempseed oil from NDA as the primary ingredient. Unlike most oils, hempseed absorbs quickly and feels fantastic on the skin. Allergy to this oil seems to be rare. It's also high (80%) in omega fatty acids, which may account for it's anti-inflammatory and pain-relief properties on tissues and joints. And hempseed oil can be refrigerated and even frozen to help retain freshness.

Rating: The hemp seed oil goes well in my soaps, lotions, and lip balm!
By:Kelly, Strathmore, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This oil has a distinctive scent, so I've not found it to be great with added scent, but it is an awesome massage oil. I've also added it to hair conditioner with success.

Rating: Hands down, NDA has the best price on Hemp Oil that I have been able to find. I love to use hemp in my
CP soap, it adds a great conditioning feel!
The quality of the oil is top notch.

Rating: I've seen tons of recipes lately that call for hemp seed oil, and NDA had -the- best price I could find anywhere, and I'm a research nut. The oil itself sinks in quickly and feels wonderful on the skin. If you haven't tried it, substitute it for some of your other oils like grapeseed or sweet almond. Between hemp oil and hemp butter, I've been inspired to create a whole line of products -- Grass Roots cream, Lemon Grass lip butter -- with "grass!"
