Hemp Seed Oil
Bottles that Leak - Oh my
I purchased 2 bottles of Swanson Organic Hemp seed oil , and was excited to receive them , the packaging needs a bit of work. Packaged in zip lock bags and one bag is half-filled with oil. emailed customer service with a picture and they shipped another out. Received the replacement and guess what ? leaked again. It seems to be a faulty lid . It is not on when the QA wrap is sealed. I adore the product and will rate higher once this issue is addressed.

Swanson Organic Hemp Seed Oil
I've been buying this for quite a while and am finally getting around to writing how great it is! It is delicious enough to eat alone with its warm, nutty and rich, full flavor, but please put it on salads, pasta, vegetables or whatever. It is not a cooking oil, but it is my favorite topping for a variety of foods that I used to put butter or olive oil on. And, the organic hemp seeds are fantastic sprinkled on too.

started using hemp seed oil few weeks ago I drink a few tablespoons a day with juice seems to help wake me up, also use it on my dry skin and used it to make a shampoo. This product has many uses I think everyone should try this

Oil leaked in Shipment
This oil was bottled and wrapped in plastic, but the top came loose and leaked during shipment. I was not happy to have to deal with an oily bottle that got all over my hands and had to be washed with soap and hot water. Other than that, the oil seems to be fresh and not rancid which is very important.

Great Spread mixed w/Sweet Butter
i make my own soft butter spread with several squirts of Swanson Hemp Seed Oil and Swanson Flaxseed Oil with 2-3 sticks sweet butter. It is delicious and spreadable, even right out of the frig, costing no where near what you have to pay at the market for a similar spreadable butter mixed with canola or olive oil and indeed far healthier.

The Hemp Oil tastes great and easy to take. My Doctor suggested I get another oil added to my supplemental diet and so I have enjoyed the use of this oil. I am sure in the weeks ahead I will see tremendous benefits from the use of the Hemp oil. I have grown to enjoy adding it to my morning green smoothies.

all these reviews on using it as a moisturizer... and here I'd been just using it in cooking! love this stuff on roasted vegetables -- gives a soft, earthy, nutty flavor. I wish there were different size bottles available, though. I have to divvy it up and share it with people, otherwise it will expire before I can use it all.

great selection of omegas
feeling of well being at a good price. hemp seed oil has so many good fats in proper ratios. I also eat hemp powder and hemp oil. good prices and good selection of hemp products.

I bought this product after reading about all of the benefits. It seems to be working so far and it's a great price. I either drink a little bit of it by itself or mix it in with water and apple cider vinegar for a healthy start to the day. Remember to refrigerate it after opening!

Hair and Skin
I mix essential oils with this oil and use it on my skin after I shower each morning. It is wonderful. Absorbs quickly and I add a couple of drops to my shampoo right before I massage it into my hair and WOW! does it ever make your hair healthy... Wouldn't be without it. I tried every oil you can think of in my hair and this is by far the best!!!

I use it as an after-shower lotion, it absorbs more quickly than any other oil I've tried. It's certainly more economical than the water-based stuff on shelves.

Trying Hemp oil for the first time....thus far feels good on the skin, will use in blends for now.

Keeps Eyes Lubricated
As an ovo-lacto vegetarian, I just can't take fish oil. Yet I need a balance of omega acids. When I don't take any source of omega acids, my eyes get uncomfortably dry. When I take hempseed oil, my eyes become lubricated again. I don't like its taste as much as olive oil, so rather than putting it on food, I just take a large spoonful to get it down quickly. It's not bad, just not particularly tasty. But it works.

I liked it, it has a nutty flavor to it and you can tell its good for you.

Wow, great price!
I bought Swanson Organic Hemp Seed Oil for skin care preparations. For such a thick, rich oil, it absorbs very quickly into the skin. The price of this organic oil is amazing.
I was also reading about how healthy this oil is to ingest and may try to use it with food in the future.
It is a perishable oil and should be refrigerated. In my skin care formulations, I always mix it with another carrier oil & vitamin E to help stabilize it.
I cannot speak for taste or internal health benefits, but in skin care it is a wonderful, nutritious oil and I would not hesitate to recommend it in this area.
