DIY pampering with CBD

Usually in this blog I give you information about one condition or another and how CBD may be of benefit to those who have such conditions. Today, I thought I’d do something a bit different. I have found recipes that you can make to pamper your fine self, using natural products and CBD oil. Oh, and that CBD oil you use for these recipes also makes a good dietary supplement, rich in vitamins, essential fatty acids and omega 3 and 6. Good for you inside and out.

Enjoy these CBD recipes with natural products to pamper and protect your body.

Bath bomb

2.     In another small bowl combine coconut, CBD and essential oils with the water.

5.     Let dry and harden 24 to 48 hours. Remove carefully and store in a dry place.

6.     Start the bathwater and toss in a bomb. Sit back, relax and enjoy.

3.     Blend on low for about a minute, scrape down the inside of the blender or food processor and blend on high to get rid of cucumber chunks.
