Hemp and Lemon Salad Dressing

I’m so excited to join up with my friend Andrea Ashley to bring you a three-part Salads and Skin Care Series! Today Andrea Ashley and I show you how lemon and hemp seeds can reduce acne when used on your skin and in recipes.

I’m making a versatile hemp and lemon salad dressing that tastes awesome on just about any salad. I use ingredients that will keep your skin clear and glowing. Taking inspiration from my recipe, Andrea Ashley uses lemon and clary sage essential oils with a hemp seed carrier oil to make an acne face oil.

Hemp and Lemon Salad Dressing Acne Fighting Benefits

  • Lemon juice reduces breakouts because of its detox properties that can help clear out our system and brighten the skin. Lemons are also high in vitamin C which promotes the production of collagen and speeds up the healing process.
  • Hemp seeds are a source of healthy omega 3 fatty acids which control the sebum and inflammatory acne.
  • Nutritional yeast which is high in B vitamins that fight redness and increase the moisture retention of the skin.
  • Garlic is high in antibacterial and antimicrobial allicin and skin smoothing antioxidants that reduce topical and internal inflammation.
  • Dark leafy greens and orange veggies are blemish busters because they are packed with Vitamin A, zinc, and Vitamin E which are commonly deficient in people who have acne.

Acne Face Oil Health Benefits

Anyone with acne usually has it ingrained in them to stay away from oil. They are led to believe that excess oil causes breakouts and that they need to use things to strip away the oil. This is simply not the case.

For acne, there are so many great essential oils such as clary sage, bergamot, ylang ylang, lemon essential oil , lavender, ti-tree, the list goes on as it can really depend on your type of acne. Not everyone who has acne has oily skin, which is why Andrea Ashley focuses on creating custom made products fresh to order based on your individual needs. But for the sake of today and taking inspiration from our delicious acne clearing salad, Andrea Ashley uses lemon essential oil with a base of hemp seed carrier oil to make this acne face oil.

Acne Face Oil Recipe

Mix 25ml of hemp seed oil with 4 drops of lemon essential oil and 2 drops of clary sage. Apply at night. Alternatively, you can even take 10 ml of the oil mixture and add it to a Tbsp bentonite clay for a detoxifying clay mask once a week.

If this particular face oil or face mask does not seem to fit you for your acne needs, you can always reach out to hello@andreaashley.ca and Andrea Ashley would be happy to advise the best oils for your skin- providing either a custom DIY recipe with supplies or creating a custom product fresh to order. If you want more, subscribe to her free online magazine for holistic custom skin care and aromatherapy tips and recipes!
