The beauty of CBD is that it’s so versatile, and there are endless ways to incorporate it into your life.
Instead of thinking of it like a medicine to take, you can use it in your everyday self-care routine in a number of ways. Here are five easy ways to start incorporating CBD into your self-care routine.
Make your own CBD mask at homeAdding a mask to your skincare routine is a great way to slow down and take some time for yourself. You can use masks from the store, or you can make them for yourself.
The upside of making your own masks is that you know exactly what’s going into them. Making fresh face masks is also a great way to avoid skincare preservatives.
You can use a CBD tincture (like ours here) to up the relaxing and balancing properties of your homemade mask. Here are two easy CBD mask recipes.
Purifying + hydrating CBD honey clay mask
Calming + soothing CBD + honey + matcha mask
Apply the mask of your choice onto freshly cleansed skin. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then gently wipe away with a warm, damp washcloth. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer.
Care for your body with CBDSelf-massage with a CBD body oilSelf-massage has many benefits, including increased circulation, easier sleep, injury prevention, balancing your mind-body connection, and stimulating organ function.
Using a CBD massage oil, like our Nirvana or Euphoria oils, can elevate your self-massaging sessions. Instead of just using a plain massage oil, a CBD massage oil will go deeper into your body to relax and restore your muscles and mind.
If you’re not sure where to get started with self-massage, here’s a video with some great tips from a massage therapist.
Take a CBD-infused bath What sounds better than a warm, relaxing, CBD-infused bath?
But before you go and waste product by just dropping it into bath water, consider making your own CBD-infused bath products. Just adding a tincture straight into your bath can quickly waste a lot of product because it won’t be absorbed into your body as well.
You can make your own CBD bath bombs at home. Here’s a quick recipe that makes about 6 bath bombs.
You will need...
Bath bomb molds
Or, if you don’t want to make bath bombs, and you like using scrubs in the bath, you can use our Scrub Me Sweetly that’s infused with CBD oil. When you rinse it off, it will be easier infused in your bathwater, so you can soak up all of the benefits.
Make a CBD Latte at HomeYou’ve probably seen CBD lattes being offered since last year in specialty coffee shops. If you tend to get the jitters when you drink coffee, CBD infused coffee can help.
There are many benefits to taking CBD that counteract the effects of caffeine, like
And good news for us who are stuck at home: if you have a CBD tincture, you can make your own CBD-infused latte.
Researchers are unsure if CBD actually regulates sleep functions themselves. It may be that CBD helps get rid of the barriers keeping you back from a good night’s sleep rather than making you sleep.
Some people find that they sleep well by taking it right before, while others report that incorporating it throughout the day helps regulate their sleep cycle better over time.
If you’re incorporating CBD into your daily routine, try taking a dosage about an hour before you go to sleep. If you have a relaxing, nightly routine, this will allow your body the time to absorb the CBD so you fall asleep when you want to.
Using CBD to Boost Meditation SessionsJust like CBD can regulate sleep function over time, it can increase your mental clarity and focus over time. If you’re practicing meditation, but can’t clear your mind of worries and distracting thoughts, CBD can help you regain the ability to keep your mind focused.
Similar to what we mentioned earlier, people who use CBD and meditate find that it’s most effective when you’ve incorporated CBD as part of a holistic lifestyle. Integrating dosages throughout your day can promote better mental and physical health overall.
And since CBD takes about an hour to take effect, it’s better to have it integrated so you don’t have to wake up an hour before your early morning meditation session to get the full benefits of CBD.
The ultimate best way to use CBD is to use it as a normal part of your everyday routine, not just as a “treat.” But we hope these five ways spark ideas of how you can live a more happy, healthy lifestyle.
