The holiday season is here!
Regardless of how you, your friends, and your family chooses to celebrate this year, the holidays can be stressful — especially during a persistent global pandemic.
This holiday season, return to your better self with a CBD self-care routine. Below are a few to choose from.
Create A CBD Hemp Oil Bath Bomb
Pamper your entire central nervous system by starting your skincare routine with a CBD hemp oil bath bomb.
Straight Hemp’s CBD balm helps alleviate muscle inflammation, which is one of the reasons we love this self-care routine.
Get ready for the holidays by activating your Endocannabinoid System, which is a system of various molecules in your body that act as receptors and interact with your central nervous system to help elevate your immune system, serves as an anti-inflammatory, and more. CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system in a variety of positive ways, and by soaking in an Epsom-salt-CBD-hemp-oil bath combo you’re bound to take your self-care routine up several notches.
How to Make Your Own CBD Hemp Oil Bath Bomb
There are many DIY recipes you can follow online but the one from Essential Health is our favorite.
First, to start your CBD bath bomb, you’re going to need the following ingredients:
- ¼ cup of Citric Acid
- ¼ cup of Epsom Salt
- ¼ cup of Corn Starch
- ½ cup of Baking Soda
- 1 ½ tsp of Water
- 25 drops of Straight Hemp CBD Hemp oil
- 60 drops of your favorite essential oils
- After you have gathered all of your ingredients mix all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
- After combining the water, essential oils, and Straight Hemp CBD Hemp oil into a measuring cup, slowly combine the dry and wet ingredients until the mixture has the same consistency as wet sand.
- Press the bath bomb mold together to the shape you want it. If you want a perfect circle, use a mold, if you don’t care about the shape you can simply mold the bomb with your hands.
- Let dry for at least 24 hours.
Tip: Make a number of CBD Hemp oil bath bombs, so when you want to relax you don’t have to wait 24 hours to take your premium CBD hemp oil bath!
CBD Hemp Oil At-Home Facials
If you’re not implementing a facial routine, you’re missing out.
In fact, an article published by Biomed Research states that “facial massages reduce psychological distress and activate the sympathetic nervous system, which reduces stress and activates a more positive mood.”
By mixing the facial with a premium CBD product, you’re bound to start feeling better in no time. Research shows us that CBD products used in skincare provide a variety of benefits as well.
In particular, studies produced by the American Society for Clinical Investigation suggest that “cannabidiol helps reduce the overproduction of sebum in the skin, which is the primary element that causes people to suffer from acne, eczema, and psoriasis.”
How To Administer An At-Home CBD Hemp Oil Facial
At-home CBD hemp oil facials do not have to be anything overly extravagant. Simply follow these steps:
- Start by rinsing your face with water.
- Exfoliate with your favorite scrub — any will do.
- Mix a large bowl with hot water and two-three drops of premium Straight Hemp CBD oil
- Drape a towel over your head to lock in the steam and place your head over the hot bowl of CBD water for 5-6 minutes.
- Dry your face & mix your favorite face mask and CBD hemp oil to finish up your at-home CBD facial.
- Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse.
Make A CBD Hemp Oil Moisturizer
We don’t want to overstate this, but men, moisturizer isn’t just for women.
As we mentioned early, CBD hemp oil research has indicated that performing regular face care routines can make you feel better — and mixing those skincare routines with your favorite CBD hemp oil is the real game-changer.
If you’re not into the facial routine, try adding in a daily CBD moisturizer.
This can brighten your mood in just a few minutes. In fact, studies show that “by adding in a moisturizer to your daily routine you are stimulating blood flow and new cell generation.”
How To Administer A CBD Hemp Oil Moisturizer
Just like creating your at-home facial, creating your own CBD hemp oil moisturizer is just as easy. Simply follow these steps:
- Spray your face with a purified or essential oil mixed with water
- Mix your Straight Hemp oil with your favorite moisturizer
- Apply directly to your face
