Hemp seed oil has been used for hundreds of years for a variety of purposes before prohibition put a stop to that, forcing those that wanted to use the amazing hemp plant for simple human necessities like food, medicine & clothing had practically become outlaws overnight.
However, (as we all know) in recent years hemp has bounced back stronger than ever, thanks in large to some heroic figures that have fought tooth and nail to make sure this amazing plant can be available for each and every human.
Now, obviously, we have a long way to come still - but we feel we have the momentum in this battle and it's only a matter of time.
If you would like to learn more about the history of hemp, we have an amazing blog on the topic here.
The idea for this blog actually comes from a lovely testimonial from one of our lovely customers, Kelsay;
"I purchased the oil to rub into my knee (history of knee reconstruction) which is now continuously swollen and painful having a significant impact on my mobility. I cannot take NSA orally or transdermal as I have an allergic reaction to it.
I had literally only used it for one day at which time I noticed a significant reduction in swelling and NO PAIN!!!
Have been applying morning and night and cannot believe the difference it has made. I can now walk without a knee brace and without limping and without pain
This product has been life changing for me and I cannot thank Margaret River Hemp Co enough for the R&D that has been undertaken to develop such quality products"Kelsay Smith - 24/01/22
After seeing the difference this product has made in Kelsay's life, we thought it only right that we shared this with everybody!
The Comedogenic rating is how likely it is to block the skin pores. Skincare products with high comedogenic ratings can cause acne breakouts. Individuals with sensitive or acne-prone skin will benefit from oils with a low comedogenic rating.
The hemp seed oil has a comedogenic rating of zero. Therefore, it is perfect for use on any part of the skin. People with sensitive skins will benefit from hemp seed massage oil because they feel refreshed with no side effects.
Hemp seed oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent because it contains beta-caryophyllene. In addition, hemp seed oil contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which has anti-inflammatory effects.
Therefore, individuals suffering from body pains, joint pain, and muscle pain may benefit from hemp seed oil massaged into effected areas.
Hemp seed oil is packed with antioxidants, which are highly essential in the skincare routine. Antioxidants help protect the skin from free radicals.
Free radicals are released when UV light interacts with the molecules of the skin. Antioxidants help to minimise signs of aging, reduce acne and protect the skin’s integrity.
Hemp seed oil also contains oleic acid and linoleic acids that play significant roles in fighting wrinkles. Hemp massage oil helps to promote the youthfulness and radiance of your skin.
Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids help treat skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis. Also, hemp seed oil is packed with lots of nutrients that are readily absorbed into the skin to optimise its condition.
One study shows that massage with hemp seed oil reduced atopic dermatitis symptoms and appearance within 20 weeks of treatment.
Hemp seed oil is the perfect ingredient for a healthy massage. It contains essential fatty acids, amino acids, Vitamins A, B, D, E, and other micronutrients that are great for the skin. In addition, hemp oil is an excellent skin softener that leaves it moisturised and supple.
Another reason to choose hemp oil for massage is that only a small quantity will do a lot. This is because it spreads evenly and dries slowly.

Our Organic Hemp (not just for) Men’s Massage Oil deeply penetrates the skin providing ultimate hydration and nourishment for your skin without blocking your pores or causing breakouts.
Although this was initially designed for men (AKA Gary's aches and pains he never stops complaining about) but has actually become a popular choice for Women as well, and is actually Kelsay's favourite Hemp Massage Oil!
One of the key ingredients is the honey myrtle, a unique Australian oil that was natively sourced in Western Australia. It has a sweet, fresh, and sparkling citrus aroma. In addition, honey myrtle has significant anti-microbial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Another active ingredient in our massage oil is Zunzea. It is locally grown and has always been used by the Australian Aboriginal communities to relieve sore and aching muscles. Therefore our massage oil promises to protect, heal, soothe and ease tightness in any part of the body.
Additionally, it contains Natural Vitamin E, a mixture of alpha, beta, delta, and gamma tocopherols. They have excellent antioxidant, hydrating, and skin protective properties.
Organic Hemp Men’s Massage Oil also contains black pepper, which has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, it acts to relieve anxiety. Therefore our massage oil is perfect after a stressful day.
Other ingredients include hemp seed oil, sunflower oil, alpha-pinene, and caryophyllene. All these ingredients work together for the best massage session you have ever had!
This Hemp Massage Oil is what your skin needs after a long day. It helps to loosen up sore and tight muscles and moisturises and nourishes your skin, leaving you feeling more relaxed. The good thing about this massage oil is that you can use it every day (or twice a day like Kelsay) to meet your needs.
An active key ingredient in our Relaxation massage oil is one of our favourite Australian Botanicals; zunzea. It has a distinguished Australian bush pleasant aroma and is excellent for sore muscles or joints and pairs exactly with black pepper, a potent anti-inflammatory agent.
Another key ingredient in our massage oil is Lavender which is arguably the top essential oil with healing and soothing properties. It is an excellent anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antimicrobial and detoxifying agent.
Lavender oil relieves pain and helps deal with inflammatory conditions. Additionally, it is great for minor cuts, scrapes, and rashes.
The ‘Relaxation’ Massage Oil has strong Australian Orange, Black Pepper, Zunzea, and Lavender notes. All the ingredients work together to soothe your body, joints, muscles, and senses.
Therefore any tension or anxiety you may be feeling simply fades away with this massage. Don’t be left out of this great Massage Oil.
Finally, we would like to share the full testimony of Kelsay.
“Well, my journey with Margaret River Hemp Co has only just started. However, they will now be my go-to company for the great products available. After talking to a lovely little shop owner, “CuCu Style Nest” in Semaphore SA. I purchased a bottle of the Organic Hemp Men's Massage Oil (I am female but loved the smell).
I purchased the oil to rub into my knee (history of knee reconstruction), which is now continuously swollen and painful, significantly impacting my mobility. I cannot take NSA orally or transdermal as I have an allergic reaction.
I sound about 104 but am only 52!!!
Anyway, back to your organic hemp Men's Oil: I had literally only used it for one day. I noticed a significant reduction in swelling and NO PAIN!!!
I have been applying morning and night and cannot believe the difference it has made. I can now walk without a knee brace and without limping and pain. This product has been life-changing for me. I cannot thank Margaret River Hemp Co enough for the R&D that has been undertaken to develop such quality products.”
