An amazing additive that adds a host of healing benefits to your daily shower!

CBD soap and other CBD-enriched products can offer a plethora of benefits. Of course, any plant based, handmade product is chock full of healthy properties for your skin. However, adding CBD oil into the mix adds a whole new dimension of healing. The topical effects of Cannabidiol are being actively researched and finding their way into the mainstream. Whether your child has acne or your friend has eczema, CBD soap can help everyone in a non-invasive way.

“CBD doesn't get you high, it gets you healthy” - unknown

In this post, I will cover the reasons why CBD is so loved and how it can benefit you and your family.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD oil (also known as cannabidiol) is a non-intoxicating little brother of THC. Cannabidiol is extracted from the Cannabis plant and then added to a carrier oil like coconut. Once extracted, it cannot get you high and instead becomes purely medicinal. Probably the most common way to take CBD oil is to ingest it. However, there are various other ways you can make use of this oil. Adding it to creams, salves, and soaps allows the healing benefits of cannabidiol to be more targeted. Have a sore ankle? Rub some CBD salve on the spot that aches. Eczema on your scalp? Use a CBD Shampoo bar.

Eczema, Psoriasis and Dry Scalp

Itchy and red painful patches of skin are a hallmark of inflammatory diseases like eczema and psoriasis. These conditions can lead to blistering, cracking, swelling and other painful symptoms. CBD oil is filled with anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing properties. A study by the American Academy of Dermatology suggests that a topical CBD application (like CBD Soap) can help relieve severe symptoms. Have a furbaby with itchy skin?!

CBD Soap for Acne

Acne isn’t just the bane of teenagers. Many adults suffer from this condition as well. CBD soap is excellent at deep cleaning pores and conditioning skin. Medical News Today also suggests that it lowers sebum production. This goes a long way towards an oil free face and hence less acne.
