How And When To Use Our Hemp Active Gels


At Honest Hemp, we have 3 gels in our Hemp Active range. They are all similar, but have some very important differences giving them unique benefits and uses.

The Science Behind Our Hemp Active Gel Range – How Do They Work?

Our Hemp Oil contains a perfect balance of omega 3, 6 and 9 (18% omega 3, 60% omega 6, 3% omega 9). This regulates and balances oil production to improve skin hydration and soothe irritation. 

All of our Hemp Active Gels are made with a high hemp oil content making the gel super-absorbent. 


  • Camphor (Cinnamomum Camphora) is used to improve blood circulation.
  • Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis) is rich in the antioxidants carsonic and carsonol, which helps to eliminate joint discomfort and maintain joint health.
  • Menthol creates a deeply cooling sensation that reduces inflammation and swelling that causes pain. 


  • Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus Globulus) contributes to healthy muscles and joints.
  • Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis) acts as a rubefacient which leads to vasodilation, causing increased blood flow to the muscles and soft tissue.
  • The heat sensation is created by first cooling the skin and then warming the skin, causing a powerful effect that deeply stimulates and relaxes the muscles. 


  • An oil and water-based formula provides a suitable amount of absorption whilst retaining enough viscosity to remain on the skin through heavy exercise/long-distance travel. 
  • Advanced anti-friction formula designed to decrease friction whilst maintaining a full range of motion.
  • Menthol creates a cooling sensation that helps to reduce the feeling of sweating.
  • Antimicrobial and antibacterial properties help to protect delicate or sensitive skin from certain microbes.
