Which CBD Product is Right for Me?

I like to think for myself. I like choice. So I provide lots of different products and customization for the people I serve. The only problem is that people can often be overwhelmed by choice. I say I like choice but often when shopping for personal items and given 50 different options I also feel paralyzed. Whether its cereal or deodorant many choices is sometimes hard. But I stop, think, and evaluate. Choice is good. Thinking is good. Customization is good. But I do get it. I offer many CBD products (and many other types of products) and I can imagine that choosing the "right" one can be daunting. But I'm here to help and even customize based on your personalized needs. So it may take a li

Is Topical CBD Application Beneficial for Relieving Muscle and Joint Aches?

People have heard of ingesting and inhaling cannabinoids for relief but what about topical applications? CBD, the cannabinoid from hemp that does NOT produce a high, can penetrate slowly into the skin and bind to the CB2 receptors. Topical CBD applications have provided many people with relief from inflammation, rashes, dry skin, headaches, sore muscles and joints, and more. When ingesting CBD orally it can take up to 2 hours or more to experience the full effects and the entire body is affected. With topical application you can target an area for more focused, faster relief. CBD is more permeable than other cannabinoids and thus more likely to stimulate CB2 receptors so CBD rich tropicals a

Grounding & Soothing Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides) Essential Oil Supports Sleep and Meditation

Vetiver (Chrysopogon zizanioides or Vetiveria zizanioides) is a perenial bunch grass native to India that shares morphological characteristics to other fragrant grasses such as lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus), citronella (Cymbopogon winterianus), and palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii). Vetiver is distilled from the roots of the plant and has an earthy, rich, musky odor that people either tend to strongly like or dislike. It is a base note, rich in sesquiterpenes, sesquiterpenols, and ketones making it ideal for soothing and grounding applications. The aromatic compounds in vetiver essential oil also offer immune supportive, skin healing, CNS sedative, and anti-fungal properties. Vetiver is fa

Aromatic Facial Serum -- Simple is Good

I've been busy formulating the past few days for an upcoming event. Made an incredible arnica-menthol-CBD cream. Slathered some on my painful knee and ahhh cooling relief. I also made a version without menthol, a gorgeous body butter, aromatherpay lotions, roller balls, foaming sugar scrubs, and brown sugar body polish, but I digress. I also needed to make a little something just for me -- a facial moisturizer as I was out but I didn't have a lot of time. And so I decided to whip up a facial serum. My facial mantra is cleanse, tone, and moisturize. I love making creams and lotions packed with skin loving goodies but for myself I prefer straight oils or salves for nourishing my face at night

DIY After Bath (or Shower) Aromatic Body Oil

Aromatic body oil can add moisture to the skin and support vital energy. In the morning smoothing on a post shower energizing body oil blend can invigorate the day and leave your skin feeling nourished. You can also make facial serums but we'll save that for another day. A bath (or shower) followed a relaxing scented body oil can help your unwind, put the day into perspective, and prepare for sleep. Making a body oil is quite easy, versatile, and has no need for preservatives. I like jojoba because is absorbs easily and is good for dry skin and soothes itching and irritated skin. Other excellent choices include apricot kernel or almond oil for their skin softening and soothing properties. Or

New Product Alert: Hemp Salve and Oils

Hemp oil has excellent anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. In its raw form it is rich in omegas and other nutrients. Many people use it to support health and soothe symptoms of dis-ease. I am excited to be able to offer an array of new hemp and CBD rich products. CBD can act as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic without any psychotropic effects. I have created and handcraft three essential oil CBD synergies in roll on or salve form. They contain CBD isolate and organic essential oils and carriers. They can be used to ease aches. I also now carry a CBD salve that contains a CBD rich hemp oil instead of just the isolate. In addition to CBD it contains hemp plant oil and nutrients from

Bergamot Mint Essential Oil in the Spotlight

Maybe you've heard about being a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll -- but how about a little bit citrus and a little bit mint? Meet bergamot mint (Mentha citrata): fruity and fresh, slightly citrusy yet calming. This mint features linalool, linalyl acetate, and a bit of beta caryophyllene with less than 1% menthol. It's profile is similar to lavender and bergamot and that makes it a great essential oil for all things calming and soothing. So it's great if you'd like a change from the usual lavender and unlike bergamot it is NOT phototoxic. How to use bergamot mint: This oils works great in the diffuser, in an inhaler, and for massage. It can support the immune system, ease mu
