Hemp Oil and Witch Hazel

Hemp oil is now on available at Sainsbury's. Has we know, hemp oil offers many health benefits, although it is not advised to use it for frying. A 500ml bottle is on sale for 5.99.

'Hemp seed and oil has been called "Nature’s Perfect Food for Humanity" - a wealth of health for everyone.

The oil can be used as part of a nutritional programme to maintain and improve good health.  With a pleasant nutty flavour, Hemp Seed Oil is ideal for use in salad dressings, mayonnaise, dips etc. It is not suitable for frying as this reduces the benefits.

Hemp has had a long-standing relationship with humanity; modern science reveals that it contains all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary for human life, as well as a rare protein known as globule edestins that is very similar to the globulin found in human blood plasma.' 

Another traditional health remedy at low cost is 'Witch Hazel'. Traditionally used by our mothers on cotton wool eye-pads for swollen eyes. It is recommended for soothing skin irritations, sprains and bruises. Low cost 1.59 at Sainbury's as well. 

Witch hazel is a plant extract from North America, and source links states that American Indians used it. It was used for 'swelling', 'inflammation' and 'tumors'. [2] There are interesting names associated with 'Witch Hazel' in the USA. They include; 'Essex', 'Mystic', 'Dickenson'. So did the author Charles Dickens reincarnate in Essex has a mystic? Let's wait and see what is revealed to us. 

Witch hazel is an astringent so you can put all those expensive cosmetic products in the bin. Natural is best. It can also be found in Japan and China so there must be a strong link here with the skin tones of the Native Americans with the orientals. 

This medicinal plant also called 'Winterbloom' has such it is a good remedy for the winter time, when the skin lacks the light of the sun. 

Apparently the name 'Witch' comes from Middle English e.g. wiche from the Old English 'wice' and it means 'pliant' or 'bendable'. Like the branch of a willow tree that bends in the wind, like being 'compliant' to the energies of nature and its natural spiritual law. 

Love beyond measure
