How to Practice Self-Care with CBD
If 2020 was the year of hand sanitizer and immune health, can 2021 (and every year to follow) be the year of self-care?
CBD can be a very powerful addition to your self-care rituals. And here’s the thing, there are ways to get even more out of your day-to-day routine.
First things first: Consistency is key when it comes to CBD. It supplements you Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which works to promote balance throughout the body by regulating a variety of functions (eating and sleeping patterns, mood, inflammation levels, stress, and more). CBD builds up in the body over time – and by taking it daily, you’re sustaining the level in your system, resulting in a more efficient and effective ECS.
The great thing about starting a daily CBD oil routine, is there are a variety of ways to incorporate it into your day beyond simply ingesting it sublingually. Here’s how we indulge in CBD self-care:
PAIR WITH YOGA
Yoga and CBD are a match made in self-care heaven. Many yogis have turned to CBD to amplify the effects of their practice. CBD and yoga work towards a common goal: Activating your ECS, which promotes homeostasis, or balance through the body. For this reason, CBD may enhance the relaxing, restorative benefits of yoga.
SET THE SERENE FACE MASK
Not only do face masks serve as a moment to slow down, relax, and find calm among the chaos—they’re incredibly beneficial in treating the body’s largest organ; the skin. CBD is rich with anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial properties, making it the perfect addition to a face mask. Check out our latest recipe for a soothing, succulent, stabilizing mask.
CBD BUBBLE BATH
Whether you’re sitting at a desk or on your feet for most of the day – stress causes your muscles to contract. Soaking them in a bath eases tension, soothes the skin and muscles, while providing a calming ritual to end your day. And by adding CBD oils to your bath, you can make a great thing even better. The heat not only increases absorption of CBD through the skin, but it also improves CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties. There are also select essential oils you can pair with your bath time, too.
