Ahh, the word of the year: “Self-care.” Just saying it out loud makes you feel as though you’re already prioritizing your happiness and health. In a busy, stressful, “go-go-go” world, we need to remember to take small moments out of each and every day to stop and — sometimes, quite literally smell the roses (yes, that may or may not be a rose-petal filled bath-bomb related joke).
For the stress-cadet, the meditating yogi, the soccer-mom, the daily jogger, it doesn’t really matter who you are or what you do — self-care and relaxation should be a priority! We are human, and we all experience stress.
Relaxation is important for your health, and important to keep stress levels down (so that your cortisol levels can remain down — stress can literally change your body, and can even make you sick). Mental health is as important as physical health, so taking time out of your day to do something that makes you feel good is a life hack to feeling happier, more energetic, and at your healthiest.
CBD works wonderfully as a topical application, in fact, it’s one of our favorite ways to use CBD. We carry a lavish range of CBD bath and body products to help dress up even the most relaxing of self-care routines. So, relax, run a salt-soak bath, sit back, and read on while we share our top 6 de-stressing CBD bath and body products.
The Lifeflower Aphrodite Bath Bomb is one of our favorite bath bombs to relax with. It’s handcrafted with high-grade aphrodisiac essential oils, and filled with other organic herbs. Containing 50 milligrams of CBD, this bath bomb is the perfect potency to soak and relax your body in. The organic coconut oil and witch hazel will leave your skin refreshed and moisturized. The best part? Not just the rose buds and hibiscus petals, but that it’s infused with a cleansed and charged rose quartz stone in the center, uplifting your energy and promoting a feeling of overall positivity.
This luxurious whip by Sow Eden is literally “better than butter.” The Sow Eden Bergamot Grapefruit Body Butter is a whipped formula infused with 150 milligrams of CBD, a wonderful concentration for healing benefits. The base of the body butter is organic virgin coconut oil and Shea nut butter, leaving the skin nourished and hydrated. Bergamot oil (Citrus Bergamia) is a form of bitter orange that has been long celebrated for its mood-lifting abilities and skin rejuvenating qualities. The most decadent feature of the Sow Eden Body Butter is its ability to help reduce skin inflammation, such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, or dry skin.
If you’re a bath-lover and want to try something different than a bath bomb, there’s no better way to soak than in a blend of 3 kinds of salts: Hawaiian Black Lava Salt, Epsom Salt, and Sea Salt. Together, these bath crystals are the perfect detoxifying mixture to soak up all the self-care you could possibly treat yourself with. The Lifeflower Sat Nam Hawaiian Black Lava Salt Bath Crystals blend is infused with activated charcoal, pulling toxins and debris straight out of the pores. Sweet Almond Oil, infused with a luxurious 500 milligrams of CBD, relaxes tired, sore muscles while nourishing dry skin. Relax to the scents of sage, eucalyptus and peppermint oil and let the crystals and the flowers do all of the thinking for you.
To instantly refresh and relax, lather up in the Lifeflower Patchouli + Rose Body Wash. This wash was consciously crafted and infused with essential oils that possess anti-depressive properties. So, as the steam in the shower rises while you rinse, breathe in the oils that work together to encourage the release of serotonin and dopamine (the natural “happiness” chemicals in our brains), to relieve worrisome feelings and negative thoughts. This formula boasts 100 milligrams of pure hemp-derived CBD, organic coconut, olive, and jojoba oil, organic aloe vera, and is infused with a cleansed and charged Rose Quartz crystal.
For all skin types, this CBD and hyaluronic acid infused facial sheet mask is a wonderful and relaxing way to give yourself some “me-time.” The purpose of the Mantra CBD Collagen Mask is to promote collagen regeneration and begin rebuilding, backed by a blend of more than 22 amino peptides/amino acids. (Fun fact: This collagen mask is vegan-friendly, as it is made from a unique non-animal source of collagen glycoproteins, derived from yeast!) After properly cleansing the skin, apply the face mask to relax, reflect and recharge for 15 to 30 minutes. You’ll thank yourself for that radiant, youthful glow shortly after.
One of our ultimate relaxation tools is CBD-infused massage oil. The Lifeflower Unify Massage Oil is potent with 500 milligrams of CBD that is infused into a base of all-natural sweet almond oil, arnica, safflower, and hemp oil — a holy blend for moisturized skin. Loaded with Vitamin E and organic jasmine buds, rose buds, chamomile buds and lavender sprigs, the natural aphrodisiac properties will be sure to seduce the body and mind. This massage oil is perfect for use in both the bath and afterwards as a massage oil or moisturizer.
