CBD contains incredible properties that make it a rising star in the natural wellness world. So it would make sense to overlap this organic substance with aromatherapy, a longtime natural choice for health & wellness. The terpenes in both broad/full-spectrum CBD oils and essential oils work really well together to deliver incredible health benefits. Essential oils can deliver terpenes already found in full-spectrum CBD, so the existing terpenes have a greater effect. Essential oils may also contain terpenes not found in the CBD, and provide added benefit by enhancing the overall terpene profile. All of these elements work together through the entourage effect.
Creating our own products using CBD and essential oils is actually pretty easy and can be a lot of fun. The rewarding outcome of an all-natural recipe we’ve assembled ourselves can aid us with a variety of issues surrounding our mind & body.
Here are a few recipes we’ve put together to get you started
