This salve is made from a simple recipe using hemp roots, hemp seed oil, beeswax and essential oils. Hemp roots have historically been used for inflammation, especially arthritis pain. New research shows that hemp roots contain terpenes, or hemp essential oils which may be helpful in treating dozens of conditions. It can be applied topically for relief of anything that “hurts, burns or itches”. Hemp seed oil is prized for its ability to penetrate the deepest layers of skin. You won’t need much to get the anti-inflammatory and pain relieving benefits of the hemp root.
