Hanföl is a revolutionary new product that has been making waves in the beauty industry. Hanföl, which means Hemp oil or Oil of Hempseed in German, was invented by Dr. Jonathan Woodruff to help with his father’s arthritis and multiple sclerosis symptoms. Now he’s sharing it with the world! We spoke to him about how Hanföl came to be and what it does for your body as well as how you can get your hands on some for yourself! Keep reading this blog post for all the details!
What inspired you to create Hanföl? How did you come up with the idea for it?
I created Hanföl because my father was suffering from arthritis and multiple sclerosis symptoms, which he got when we immigrated to America in 1955. He had terrible troubles walking and getting out of a chair that were slowly making him bedridden. So, at first I just made an oil blend using hemp seed oil as the carrier base (about 50%) along with other therapeutic essential oils like wintergreen, eucalyptus radiata, cedarwood etc., designed specifically for his condition…I wasn’t sure if it would help him or not, but it did.
Do you still use Hanföl for medicinal purposes? What are some of the other ways people can use Hanföl in their lives?
Yes I do! For many years now I’ve used Hanföl as a massage oil with my patients to relieve aches and pains from arthritis, fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis…as well as using it on myself when I come home tired after working all day. More recently we have started making new blends based around our natural lip balms that will be launching soon so stay tuned for those! We also make soap bars which is another way to enjoy this versatile healing blend.
I love how it smells, but more importantly the relief that it has given to so many people. It’s rare for me to meet someone who Hanföl doesn’t help in one way or another!
Do you have any tips on using Hanföl as a massage oil? How much should be used and where is best applied?
For most adults, two tablespoons of liquid will make enough for about 20 minutes worth of massaging. Just wear old clothes…the oil stains! And always remember to blend with other oils too like coconut or sesame before applying because there are some folks who don’t enjoy the smell of hemp alone. Sometimes mixing with peppermint extract can bring the smell down as well.
I always make a point of having some good quality hemp seeds in my diet, but there are many other ways you can enjoy it too! Hemp butter is great for baking or frying vegetables and the health benefits come from both the protein and omega oils found in the seed itself. My favorite way to use Hanföl though might be just simply to add a tablespoon into one of my afternoon green smoothies! It gives me that extra boost right when I need it most.
