CBD tinctures are your most versatile option as they can be used both internally and topically. For daily internal use, hold your tincture serving under your tongue for about 60 seconds as this is the fastest way to get it flowing in your bloodstream. But get creative as there are countless ways to use your hemp-derived CBD tincture.
Mix It In Your Skincare And Beauty Products
Yes, you can purchase CBD skincare and beauty products but that means you must add new products to your beauty routine. Keep the products you love and enjoy the benefits of CBD by mixing a few drops of your oil tincture in. Add a drop or two to your daily body lotion, face serum, anti-aging night cream, hair conditioner, face mask, and more!
CBD Butter Or Oil
Just because it won’t get you high doesn’t mean you can’t cook or bake with CBD. For it to mix in evenly you must add CBD fat. For example, add .5 oz per batch when creaming the butter for baked goods. You could also make your own CBD-infused butter or oil—like coconut, avocado, sesame.
- 2 cups butter or oil of choice
- 1 cup water
- 20ml Holmes Organics CBD oil
Add ingredients to a double boiler. If using butter chop it first. Cook on low heat for 2 hours stirring frequently. Once the water has evaporated cool, but don’t allow the butter to harden. Pour into a glass container.
Drink Your CBD
You can infuse any beverage with CBD oil. To ensure it is well mixed and doesn’t just end up on the sides of your glass or mug, it must be whisked, blended, or shaken in a shaker. Add to your morning coffee, herbal tea, bulletproof coffee, turmeric coffee, mixed drinks, party punch, and more. We have a few CBD drink recipes here.
Add To Your Bath Salt
As you explore more ways to naturally relax, unwind, and soothe sore muscles, baths may become a regular part of your weekly routine. Boost the healing power of warm water by adding in Epsom salt, essential oil, and CBD oil. The recipe is simple and can be customized by your goals.
- 2 cups plain Epsom salt or an Epsom salt with natural essential oils blended in
- 1 dropper full of Holmes Organics CBD Oil
- 10 to 20 drops of any combination of essential oil
Apply It Topically
Taking your CBD oil internally will help to ease inflammation but for targeted pain relief you can also apply it topically, just be mindful of serving amount. You can apply your oil directly to your inflamed area, but it can leave a bit of an oily residue, so mixing it into a bit of lotion will help it absorb in. Adding it to oil also increases the surface area you can apply to.
These are just a few fun ways to use your CBD tincture but you are sure to come up with more!
