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.
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 ent

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
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
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 organi
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'
