Homemade Hemp Salve | with Sana Oil Extractor EUJ-702

Hi it’s Dan from EU Juicers.com, coming to
you as always from the heart of Europe. And I’ve got a very special guest with me
today. She is an herbalist and she also happens to
be my wife. We’ve been married 25 years now, got a couple
of teenage daughters, and our house is full of all sorts of these experiments, or products. How many products do you make now? Um, about 70 or more. Seventy? My goodness. And what we do, she grows a lot of these things
in the garden or we go out in the forest, we gather things, and she processes them. What kind of things do you make? Oh my gosh, I make all sorts of different
healing salves and tinctures, soaps and medicines, all sorts of different things for healing,
natural healing. OK, and most of these things are things you
grow or collect? Yeah, I would say 90% we grow in our garden
or collect in the area around us. And I can tell you all through summer and
fall, we’ve got a big dehydrator, a big Excalibur in our garage, that thing is running 24/7,
drying things constantly. Things like this. What is this? That is calendula from our garden, last year’s
harvest. OK and what is this here? That’s hemp, want some? No not right now thanks. But that kind of leads in to what we’re doing
today. There’s hemp, not leaves but hemp seeds. What are you going to be making today? Today we’re making hemp seed oil salve, which
is great for healing sensitive or problem skin. Alright, so I’m going to get out of the way
here, Krista’s much easier on the eyes, and she’s going to show you how to make it. It’s really fast and simple. So my daughter Roxanne has extremely sensitive
skin, to the point where it cracks and bleeds. She has psoriasis and eczema, pretty much
anything that we put on her causes pain. Creams, salves, anything will actually irritate
her skin more. So I researched a lot and I tried to find
something that would work for her. We even went to the doctor and got a prescription
for her and nothing worked. Everything hurt her skin. Even the creams that I would make at home,
even things that were just really natural and simple were really bothering her skin. So, I did a lot of research and we made at
a home with my daughter this hemp salve, which is as it says here “Just Hemp” salve. It is only hemp oil with a little bit of beeswax
in it to solidify it, and it was the first thing that we could put on her skin that didn’t
cause more pain for her. She’s been using it for about a year, and
now her skin has healed so much so that she can put any kind of cream or salve on it. And this is why I really wanted to show you
this, because many people suffer from sensitive skin and are looking for something that can
work for them. When I first started making the hemp save,
I would buy hemp seed oil. But in herbalism, we talk often about how
fresh is always best. So now I’ve been using an oil extractor to
make my own hemp seed oil from hemp seeds. So I purchase the hemp seeds and run them
through the oil extractor, getting as much oil as I need for that batch of salve which
means it’s fresh. I know exactly where it is coming from. I know what’s in it. I know what’s not in it. And I’m sure I’m getting the best quality
that I can, which is – when you’re using herbs and oils as medicine – absolutely crucial
to get super good fresh quality. So we’re going to make the hemp seed oil salve
right now. I’m going to show you how simple and easy
it is to make. Just a couple of steps takes just a few minutes. The first thing we need to do it make the
hemp seed oil. So I’m putting the hemp seeds into the oil
extractor. Soon you’ll see the oil coming out here. So as you can see, the oil should be a dark
rich green. This is the perfect color for our hemp seed
oil. And these little curlicues coming out here
are the leftovers from the hemp seeds, and these are excellent even as a snack, put into
salads, and I recently just tricked my family and baked these into meatloaf. I think they thought it was spinach or something. It’s really nutritious and it shouldn’t go
to waste. So now we’re going to go ahead and make the
hemp seed oil salve. Our hemp seed oil is finished. It took about 15 minutes to make this using
about 700 grams of hemp seed. I’m going to go ahead and pour it in to our
pot to start warming it. So now we’re going to add in our beeswax. This is what makes the salve solidify and
helps it in storage and it has some qualities of preservative to it. We use the beeswax in a 1 to 4 ratio. It’s super simple. You don’t need to be an expert scientist to
do this. You just put in four parts oil and one part
beeswax. And then we simply heat it up over low temperature
until it’s all emulsified, and then we pour it into jars. Okay, it’s finished. It was really quick here in the studio. Normally I use at home a double boiler, and
I recommend that for all salve making, but here it was really quick because of this hot plate. So now we’re going to go ahead and put it
into the jars. It takes just a few minutes to solidify, depending
on what size jar you are using. So we’ll wait just a little while for these
to cool. I’m going to go ahead and close them up. It was really a simple process. You can see it takes just a few minutes and
you can have something that’s absolutely healing for your sensitive skin. So I’m back now that she’s done. How was it? Um, I think it was good. Not too nervous? Um, really nervous, but OK. Oh well. So um, tell me, what is this stuff good for? This stuff, you mean the salve? The salve, yeah what would I use it for? The salve is excellent for hurting skin basically. Psoriasis, eczema, very very sensitive skin. Any kind of skin problems, cracked bleeding
dry skin. It can be put on your face as a moisturizer,
on your lips as a lip balm. Here, do you want to try some? Um, yeah sure. What are you going to do? I’m just going to rub it on. It’s excellent. It’s amazing. What’s beautiful about it is it’s non-comedogenic,
meaning it will not clog your pores. So it’s really good for people who are acne-prone. Could I, when you had that oil there, could
I just drink it straight? Am I going to get high from the marijuana? You’re not going to get high from the marijuana. No, bummer. The seeds don’t contain the THC that a marijuana
plant that’s used for weed does. Yeah that’s only in the flowers, huh? So it’s not a problem at all. I was actually doing some research before
Krista came in. Apparently the hemp seed oil, if you take
it, ingest it, it’s got a great balance of essential fatty acids and it’s supposed to
have one of the most ideal ratios of Omega 6 to Omega 3s. So it’s really good for reducing blood pressure,
lowering cholesterol, things like that. And in general, it’s healing and nutritive
as a plant. Well, thanks for coming. I hope you liked this. If you liked this video, please leave a comment
below. If you want Krista to come back, let us know. She makes all sorts of things. We could use a dehydrator, the oil extractor,
lots of things. She can show you how to make different products. And that will wrap this up. Thanks for watching, and we will see you next

  1. I wonder what will happen if your put thinly sliced (so that it will fit) carrots in the oil extractor, and if you would get a better yield comparing to the juicing attachment

  2. This kind of herbalism content and nutritive smoothie recipes’ make me want to purchase a Oil Extractor or a juicer. Please more of Krista and her herbs. I want to find out what more u can do. Keep up the good work 🙂

  3. Excellent video. Would Krista recommend any books for me to learn more about herbs and medicinal properties? Thanks guys.

  4. We in Australia have different states that allow you to have cannabis for Pain and other states only allow us the buy the oil, other then that it’s illegal

  5. Also a tip for beeswax – buy it from your own country as you don’t know if the hive has been sprayed with chemicals, Aussie Soap Supplies are safe and so are Bramble berry – I don’t recommend eBay or amazon and this works amazing for my sons eczema and I sell it also even before I saw this and have had heaps of great feedback plus I’m a Aromatherapist and naturopath I have a butterfly garden a Aromatherapy Garden and a fruit n veg garden.

  6. One of the few videos that kept it simple. The only thing I would include is the ingredient amounts. 730 grams of seeds produces about how many ounces of hemp seed oil and after adding beeswax about how many ounces of product.

    I am sharing this video now. Nice job and keep the duo going.
