CBD Essential Oils? They make those?!

I’ve always been a sucker for essential oils…so naturally my very first order from Kannaway included the essential oils trio set. And I’ve been using them often lately, coming up with different simple ways in which to incorporate them in my routine.

The pack came with 3 blends: Energize (citrus, eucalyptus, cinnamon blends), Tranquility (Ylang Ylang, lavender blends), and Defense (like a CBD Thieves’ Oil). I am not quite sure that using them in a diffuser realizes the full potential of the cannabinoids in them, but when I use them with my aromatherapy bracelet or implement the pressure points therapeutic approach, I get a better sense of absorption. Maybe it’s a placebo effect with all essential oils, including ones with cannabinoids, but I really don’t think so. Science has gone both ways. But for me, these are heavenly additions to my oils in the herb cabinet.

Some of the simple ways I’ve been using the trio pack lately:

Tranquility:

*in a carrier oil for massage: achy joints, sore/cramped/tense muscles, general relaxation; applied to temple pressure points for headache relief

*in a diffuser for aromatherapy/promote better sleep

*drop on finger and rub on inner wrist pressure points for stress & anxiety comfort

Energize:

*in a diffuser in the morning, during a workout, during general activity (I even use my diffuser in class!)

*in a carrier oil or drop on finger and rub on pressure points located between thumb and index finger

*drop on finger, stimulate top of forehead pressure point for a quick pick-me-up

Immunity:

*in a diffuser to promote air purification (and a lovely air freshener)

*homemade cleaners and disinfectants

*small amount of oil blend (Immunity in carrier oil) just under the nose to inhibit environmental pollutants/germs

All in all, I would recommend adding essential oils to your own home medicine cabinet. Utilizing essential oils in general is a positive practice, and can offer a natural alternative for many healing and even household products. Just avoid oils that are not 100% natural, or have artificial fragrances or additives. Food grade is usually safe. More to come with recipes and blends using these wonderful oils!

Kannaway Life

So I started taking a CBD supplement 2 days ago. I want to say I already feel a difference, but it’s such a subtle undercurrent that I’ve ended up second guessing myself. But going into the third day, I am experiencing a fresher feeling inside…like a bit more energy, but with a contented vibration.

I started taking CBD in hopes of helping ease the depressive states I frequently experience. That’s a bit of another story, for another time. But in some moments, I have definitely felt more motivated intrinsically, and I’ve felt more energetic at tackling the mundane things that I’ve neglected here and there.

It has only been 3 days, but I’m hoping I’ve found something that can help that isn’t a commercial drug for depression. I’ve been working with healing plants for some time now, and have truly become a believer in the healing power of cannabis.

So I’ve started the CBD supplements, and am looking into some other CBD products that can also be beneficial, now not just for me, but my family as well. More on this journey to come. 🙂

Does anyone else have experience with CBD oils and supplements? If so, kindly leave a comment; I would love to hear!
