It’s 2019 – everybody’s adding collagen to their coffee, diffusing essential oils in their car (it’s a real thing!!), and posting sheet mask selfies on Instagram. Anybody who’s anybody has a comprehensive wellness routine and a shelf in their refrigerator dedicated to skincare.
Jokes aside, whether self-care to you looks like journaling morning pages or making cauliflower crust pizza in the evenings, this push toward focusing on our physical and mental health is more than just a trend. We should always work on achieving our healthiest, happiest self, no matter what superfood is in style.
To help you get to your healthiest, happiest self, we’re throwing out a wellness buzzword – CBD. CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a byproduct of the cannabis plant. It is the part of the plant that does not have any psychoactive effects, but has proven incredible physical benefits. While it’s a trendy super-ingredient in the wellness world, we don’t think this is a trend that’s fading anytime soon. It’s known for reducing inflammation, aiding the body in achieving better sleep, stress reduction, and calming acne or rosacea — sounds like the ideal self-care ingredient, right?
Go too hard in the Pilates class this morning? This powerful and natural spray (formulated with healing essential oils and plant extracts) relieves sore muscles, sun burn, sprains, and swollen joints. It even can work long-term for relief with migraines or arthritis. The cannabis obviously works as an anti-inflammation agent, but also calms the stress on joints or muscles.
With 22 amino peptides, collagen biopeptides, Vitamins B3, B5, C, and E, and
30mg of CBD, this might just be the most powerful sheet mask out there. It firms, plumps, and brightens, while also soothing any inflammation or redness (thank you, CBD!). Your sheet mask selfie has never looked better!
Cannabis in your perfume? Why not! Cannabis accord has calming, uplifting, and stress-relieving effects, and mixed with bergamot, Brazilian orange, and black plum, the scent is sensual, woodsy, and luxurious. You’ll want to spray it in your luggage before a romantic weekend getaway or spritz it all over before a first date.
So this is basically every wellness trend rolled (pun intended) into one — this oil roller meant to decrease anxiety is infused with 100mg of CBD, essential oils like lavender and ylang ylang, herbs, and a charged quartz crystal. Roll onto temples or wrists for immediate relaxation when you’re feeling stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed.
Why include CBD in your post-shower lotion? Because of the anti-inflammatory properties of the ingredient, a CBD body cream provides immediate relief for sunburns and moisturizes even intensely dry skin. Containing powerful ingredients like rosehip oil, 100mg of CBD, aloe vera, and vitamin E, your skin will never feel better.
Because what’s more self-carey than lighting a candle that’s not only soothing by atmosphere (there’s a reason every spa lights candles), but by scent too? Warm notes like suede and cannabis are mixed with floral tones for a modern and intoxicating scent. Bonus: the candle is made of a combination of coconut wax and beeswax so its all natural and non-toxic.
Every good wellness obsessive has her own bath routine. Are you more of an epsom salt, apple cider vinegar, or coconut oil bath bomb kinda girl? No matter how you like your bath, consider adding this CBD bath salt into your routine. It’s made with 100 percent organic, non-GMO CBD, aka the most relaxing bath you will *ever* take.
Another body lotion to improve your wellness routine — this one is meant to have a cooling effect upon contact, contains 100mg of CBD per bottle, and feels soothing and luxurious on the skin. Not to mention this packaging will look pretty as hell in your medicine cabinet.
Packed with CBD and lavender, bergamot, and chamomile essential oils, this pocket-sized roll-on is the secret headache-relief and stress-reducer you need in your life. Rolling it on your wrists or taking quick sniffs will immediately reduce stress, but it also helps to relieve headaches and hangovers when you roll on your temples.
Let’s just say the good people over at Soul Addict knew what they were doing when they made this face mask — it uses a manuka honey formula (hello, antioxidants and AHAs!), with activated vitamin C, organic peppermint oil, and 100mg of CBD. They don’t brag about it, but this mask also contains ashwagandha root, aka it’s the trendiest face mask to ever hit the shelves.
Prefer to take your CBD orally? Why not mix it with one of the most powerful superfoods and an Instagram favorite? To combat any inflammation within the body, this double whammy contains 100mg of turmeric root extract and 10mg of CBD. It also includes 5mg of black pepper extract to help with absorption.
The Good Patch
While these body patches are made with hemp instead of pure CBD, it still has many of the same soothing benefits. They stick to your wrists for an immediate dose of anti-inflammation, stress-relief, and calmness. I know, I know — sounds a little crazy, but trust me. You will never need to count sheep again, because these natural patches will knock you right out.
You already know that diffusing essential oils is a crucial part of wellness in 2019, and maybe you even already have a diffuser (remember that one for your car?). Instead of diffusing the same old lavender oil before bed, why not diffuse some CBD? Not only do each of the different scents make whatever room in your house smell *amazing,* but it will also help to reduce anxiety and calm your nervous system.
Since cannabis is a natural medicinal herb, Malin Goetz considered it the perfect ingredient to prove that perfume is not just about beauty, but it’s about wellness too. Cannabis is combined with spicy herbs, floral notes, and just a touch of smokiness for a luxurious and intoxicating scent (sounds good, doesn’t it?). Perfect for lazy days or even a spritz on your pillow before bed.
Again, I can’t say enough good things about adaptogens and their popularity as a wellness trend. Combine two life-changing trends at once with this restorative blend of adaptogenic herbs and Colorado-grown CBD. You can mix a couple drops with water, smoothies, tea, or even a cocktail (for bonus points), making this little dropper the easiest way to reduce anxiety and promote restful sleep since you were 5 years old and nap time was a necessity (I mean really, isn’t it still.)
