Struggling with your work/life balance? Need some ‘me’ time? Well we here at Love CBD HQ may have the answer with a relaxing CBD massage. Our Love CBD balm is perfect for a massage at the end of a busy day. It absorbs perfectly into the skin and gives you a localised shot of hempy goodness.
The Benefits of Massage
There is plenty of historical evidence of the benefits of massage. Many ancient civilisations including The Greeks, Egyptians and Chinese societies used massage as a form of therapy and as part of their healing process.
Massage is thought to reduce stress and make you feel more relaxed. And with everybody so busy these days, that can be a real bonus. A massage can also help with sore muscles and muscle tension, which is great if you’re sat at a desk all day, or someone who enjoys a good workout at the gym.
A massage could also lower our heart rate and reduce blood pressure, after all if you feel more relaxed then you are going to lessen the workload of your heart which in turn should reduce blood pressure. And let’s not forget the effect the human touch has on us. After all, when someone we are close to is feeling tired or in some discomfort, we often put our hands on them to reassure them and to soothe their anxiety away.
A touch can also release a hormone called Oxytocin which is believed to be responsible for that ‘warm’ feeling you get when you’re hugged by someone.
A massage also has other health benefits which can improve our physical and mental health.
A massage can also release Endorphins which are special chemicals which make us feel happy. They are also released when we eat nice foods or do some exercise. So having these rushing through our system after a nice, relaxing massage can only be a good thing!
So a massage will not only give someone the lovely touch of a person massaging you, but can also give you a feeling of happiness and lift your mood.
Can You Massage CBD into Your Skin?
Our CBD balm also contains many ingredients which enhance the experience of a good massage and are beneficial to our skin.
It contains nourishing ingredients including Coconut Oil, Beeswax and Cocoa Butter. These ingredients can help moisturise our skin, fight the signs of ageing and can be an antibacterial so keeping harmful things out of our system.
Of course at the heart of the balm is Cannabis Sativa Oil. This natural magic ingredient is packed full of Mother Nature’s best goodies and is an excellent moisturiser for our skin. It also gives the balm its glorious light green hue and its subtle aroma.
How to Use CBD Balm for Massage
You can apply the balm to all parts of the body, massaging it into your arms, legs, shoulders and neck. Or get someone close to you to do this and feel even better!
The best way to use our balm is to use an amount required for the area that you are massaging and simply rub gently into the body. If the balm is too solid to use, you can stand the jar of balm in a saucer of warm water, which will help soften it until the balm is more pliable.
Start with a nice neck rub, which can be really relaxing especially at the end of a long day. Or a foot rub, which can have a very calming and soothing effect.
A massage can also be used to help our bodies recover from a workout. We all know how important it is to ‘warm down’ after exercise like running, going to the gym or even yoga.
To avoid damage to our muscles after a workout, we need to do some gentle stretching so our muscles can recover from the stresses and strains of exercise.
Once this has been done, a massage is an excellent way to relieve tiredness and return a healthy glow to our bodies.
Is CBD Massage Safe
The other great thing about Love CBD balm is that the CBD content stays on the skin and acts only at the point of contact. This means that the CBD does not enter your bloodstream nor get into your system, so there’s no chance of it adding to the total content of CBD if you’re already taking Love CBD oils or capsules.And being localised, it means the CBD in the balm can get to work on any area of your skin, moisturising it and giving it a healthy, warm glow. Our balm is non greasy and absorbs quickly into the skin. So it’s a great all round product which leaves your skin looking and feeling great and can leave you with a massive smile on your face. And a warm feeling all over your body!
What makes Love CBD Balm so great for your skin?
Here are just a few things which explain how these ingredients in Love CBD’s balm can help keep our skin healthy.
Coconut Oil helps our skin in several ways. It contains fatty acids which can help hydrate and protect our skin from bacteria.
Like Coconut Oil, the Love CBD balm in our Shea Butter contains fatty acids and vitamins which keep our skin healthy. It can help soften and hydrate our skin. It also contains Vitamins A and E which help protect skin from potential harmful exposure to the Sun. Love CBD balm’s Shea Butter can also help with our skin’s elasticity, which could mean less wrinkles, something I’m sure no one would object to!
Cocoa butter is great for improving the overall health and appearance of your skin and can be a very gentle way of removing make-up due to the way that cocoa butter becomes oily when melted.
The Rosemary Oil in Love CBD balm has many uses to help keep our skin in tip top condition. It can help purify the skin and rejuvenate your complexion. Love CBD balm also helps maintain our skin’s balance.
We call the Love CBD Balm ‘Our little pot of gold’ which is why it’s a firm favourite among our customers.
