I have started using hemp seed oil as a base oil in many of my salves.
The research on hemp oil states that it contains some of the most balanced and richest sources of oils on the planet. The ideal 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is recommended by the World Health Organization for optimal utilization. Hemp seed oil contains 80 percent essential fatty acids, the highest of any plant.
Hemp seed oil for hair, skin, and nails
Hair, skin, and nails are all formed from the same line of dermal cells, so it is no surprise that people who use hemp oil report thicker and shinier hair, softer skin, and stronger nails. Since hemp seed oil is nearly identical to our own lipids, it is capable of penetrating our cells and lubricating the surfaces between them. It is used to nourish not only dry skin but blotches and lesions as well. It can detoxify the skin and even out skin tone. You can safely use hemp oil as a skin moisturizer without worry of it clogging the pores. (quote from Natural News http://www.naturalnews.com/036039_hemp_seeds_oil_EFAs.html#)
