Last month I shared my new favorite product with you – The Fay Farm’s CBD Warming Oil. This oil and their CBD lotion are both amazing products and they have really helped me reduce the pain in my shoulders (and other areas). Today I want to tell you more about The Fay Farm.
The Fay Farm is a family-run farm located on Whidbey Island, outside of Seattle Washington. Michael and Stacy run the farm with their seven daughters. On the farm they raise Nubian goats and grow a variety of herbs. In addition to their website you can find them at their booth at Pikes Place Market. Their natural body care products range from Goat’s Milk Soap to Healing Hemp Salve and not to their line of CBD oil infused products. Check out this quick Q&A with Michael and Stacy and then check at the bottom of this post for details on how you can win a selection of the CBD oil infused products.
Why do you use Hemp Oil in your products?
Hemp Oil is high in Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, which are great for reducing inflammation and stimulating rejuvenating and rebuilding of skin. Hemp Oil replenishes our body’s essential fatty acids, which help our skin hold moisture and acts as an aid to aging skin. Hemp Oil is the only plant oil that contains Vitamin D, which is used in calcium absorption, and helps to achieve smooth and hydrated skin.
We developed the Healing Hemp Salve for one of our daughters, who was suffering from eczema and psoriasis For years we had her on topical steroids and immuno-suppressants, but she continued a painful downward spiral of outbreak, itching, bleeding, applying steroids, thinning her skin, and then the next cycle would become even more painful. Stacy got frustrated with the process and began researching ways to naturally relieve our daughter’s symptoms. She came up with several recipes and after many months came upon the formulation that we use today (with some changes over the 11 years we have been in business). Response to our Salve has been phenomenal and we have had people over the years email or call us with several different applications they’ve discovered for the Salve such as relief for bug bites, a great insect repellent, great for burns, scar reduction, athlete’s foot and ringworm–it’s even used as a natural makeup remover! We have been very popular in the ichthyiosis community, as well as for contact dermatitis sufferers. Most importantly, the folks in the very dry climates swear by our Salve, and other moisturizers.
We introduced our Healing Hemp Lotion last year, based on the many suggestions we received from our customers in 21 countries. They loved the Healing Hemp Salve, but at times did not like the length of time the Salve remained moist on the skin. After four and half years of product development, Stacy unveiled the Healing Hemp Lotion, which is a Lotion free of alcohol or methyl parabens–both ingredients that are damaging to skin and basically make a moisturizer useless. Immediately, the Healing Hemp Lotion has become one of our best-selling products, in fact, when customers order our Lotion for the second time from our website http://thefayfarm.com/p/cbd, they order anywhere from two to five bottles at a time!
What’s the Big Deal with CBD Oil?
A few years ago, we began getting questions from our customers asking what percentage of Cannabidiol Oil (CBD) is in our products. We researched the benefits of CBD and discovered it is effective for pain relief, anti-anxiety and improving mood. We immediately began developing formulations containing CBD based on some of our popular products, such as Lotion, Salve and Muscle Rub. The result is our recently introduced line of CBD products and they have been showstoppers since their debut last month.
We tested our CBD products on several dozen people with diagnoses as diverse as fibromyalgia, arthritis, sore muscles from working out too hard, and have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from these groups for both our Warming CBD Muscle Rub and our Healing Hemp CBD Lotion. Our eczema and psoriasis sufferers have seen greatly improved results with our Healing Hemp CBD Salve and Healing Hemp CBD Lotion.
CBD oil is legal in all 50 states and 28 countries outside the US. Because we use a whole plant extraction that is less than 0.3% THC, it is considered a food additive and is regulated by the FDA. We get asked a lot if this is a legal product, and most definitely it is legal!
