Massage Your Way To An Earthly Body

Hemp. It has been around for thousands of years and it has many more uses than you probably realise. Today you can live in a hemp house, wear hemp clothes, sit on hemp furniture and write on hemp paper, the list goes on. So I figured it was only a matter of time before hemp made its way into Oh! Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres. I was hoping for a hemp vibrator (and I still hold out hope) but until then we will have to settle for a beautiful massage oil. But before we begin I think it is important to know a little more about hemp itself.

Hemp? Isn’t That Marijuana?

The short answer is yes. Hemp comes from the same type of plant the drug marijuana comes from. However the plants used in all hemp products contain very low levels of THC (the stuff that gets you high.) Because of this using products that contain hemp is fine, they will not get you high and they will not show up on any drug tests. Some people have even taken to eating hemp seeds as a health food and claim it is incredible for their overall health.

Ok, But Why Hemp?

Hemp is a super plant. It grows very quickly and has a low carbon footprint compared to other crops. The true appeal of hemp is in its jack-of-all-trades nature. There are not many plants that can be used as a building material but can also be eaten or worn and because of this a hemp crop is a safe means of income for a framer to grow. Also with the increasing acceptance of Marijuana and its proven health benefits (hemp oil has been proven to be an effective treatment for many illnesses and conditions like epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease) many people, myself included, are opting to go hemp.

Earthly Body Massage And Body Oil

Earthly Body have created a range of hemp massage and body oils that feel beautiful on the skin and smell even better. Since these oils had come into the store I had been looking for a reason to buy one, then my husband hurt his neck and needed massage oil. I jumped (perhaps to excitedly considering my husband’s pain) at the chance to buy the oil. I spent longer than probably necessary picking out a fragrance but they all smell so good! I ended up going with Skinny Dip which smells like vanilla and cotton candy (what can I say? I have a sweet tooth) but they have everything ranging from the good old basic sent of Lavender through to one called Nag Champa which is East Indian inspired. These aren’t your cheap smelling supermarket oils and you can definitely smell and feel the difference. The Earthly Body Massage Oil is a little thicker than others and this is good for two reasons. Firstly it lasts longer. When you are giving a massage having oil that doesn’t absorb quickly is great because you don’t need to reapply as often, which also means you are using way less oil so it lasts longer. Secondly when giving a massage slightly thicker oil us easier to use. It doesn’t quickly run down the body and gives you a second to put the bottle down, I have always found the application of massage oil a little awkward but this stuff wasn’t at all.

My favourite thing about the oils is that they aren’t tested on animals and are suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans. I have a lot of Vegetarian and Vegan friends and I know the struggle to find products (especially beauty and hygiene products) that they feel they can use so this oil has given me a sure fire Chrissy gift for my herbivore friends.

Now I know I said I purchased this oil for my poor sore husband but in truth I am the one who uses it more. I’ve even began using it instead of my normal moisturiser. I have very dry skin and this is better for it than any specially designed dry skin formula cream I’ve ever used, plus it smells nicer.

Earthly Body breaks down how and why their oils are so awesome. They credit an “Emollient rich oil blend” which contains:

The Benefits Of An Emollient Rich Oil Blend

Almond Oil

Almond Oil softens skin, it contains vitamins E and D which are both great for the skin. Vitamin A is thought to have anti-ageing effects.

Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp Seed Oil produces Omega 3, 6 and 9. These can help with any inflammation and can sooth irritated and delicate skin.

Apricot Oil

Apricot Oil brings more vitamin A and E as well as Linoleic, oleic acid which aid with skin elasticity and suppleness.

Rosemary Oil

Rosemary Oil helps to stimulate blood flow.

Grape Seed Oil

Grape Seed Oil has more anti-ageing properties while also helps to prevent blocked pores.

Now I wish I could say I knew all this before I purchased my oil but I didn’t. However now I do know all of the above, I now want to buy the whole range of Earthly Body Oils. Did you know that there are different types of sexual massages?
