Hemp is a strain of the cannabis plant used in many industrial applications & as a food source, it differs from recreational cannabis drug use in that the strain has little amounts of the active compound that gets you high THC. So just as a human is not an ape, hemp is not sativa.
Even at that the hemp powder would be the isolated protein from the plant, it wouldn't be the plant ground up into powder form. Just like sugar does not contain the fibers/vitamins of the cane it comes from.
Hemp is a popular protein powder used in shakes and smoothies and also a milk substitute. It has a great nutritional range rich in omegas & amino acids. It is perfectly fine to use & will not show up in drug tests or have any side effects like smoking weed as it DOES NOT contain THC which gets you stoned. So yes you can lick the soap LOL
My Hippie Soaps are made using hemp seed oil base and sometimes powder, the oil helps balance dry skin and is anti-ageing, its absorbed easily into the skin, has anti-oxidant and moisture balancing properties and combats skin irritations.
Hemp soap also contains hemp seed powder which acts as a mild exfoliator giving your skin a youthful glow.
So there now you know this has been HEMP 101 :)
Patchouli has long been used in skin care for its ability to help alleviate such issues as acne-prone conditions, eczema, inflammation, and cracked, chapped, irritated skin. It is often found in anti-aging skin care for its cell-rejuvenating properties and its ability to lessen the look of scars. Patchouli’s anti-fungal properties make it useful in treating athlete’s foot, and for hair it helps alleviate signs of dandruff and balance oiliness.
The nervous system definitely benefits from the aromatherapeutic scent of Patchouli. It helps reduce tension, insomnia and anxiety, while uplifting the mind. Its deep, rich, intoxicating aroma has also been used as an aphrodisiac. Maybe the “love children” of the 60s were on to something! It is used today to scent textiles, to help repel insects, and is used extensively in the flavoring industry. And although the undiluted aroma of Patchouli is oftentimes unpopular, when it is used in small amounts it adds depth and beauty to almost any blend. As a base note and fixative in natural perfumery, nothing beats Patchouli. This is truly one multifaceted oil.
