While CBD is known for aiding with issues such as epilepsy, joint discomfort, cancer, and other afflictions, it’s arguably most popular for relieving anxiety, PTSD, and depression. My last article tackled the impact of oxidative stress and how CBD can help alleviate the damage done when toxins from the outside world get into our system. Sometimes, internal toxins brought on by emotional and mental stress can be just as harmful.
Women and Stress-Related Health Problems
According to the American Institute of Stress, “women are twice as likely to experience major depression than men. They are also up to three times more apt to suffer from anxiety disorders or to attempt suicide.” While theories concerning why these numbers are so staggering are vast, the issue at hand presented an opportunity for a creative solution by marrying CBD to the bath and beauty industry.
A study conducted by the Journal of Psychopharmacology showed that CBD significantly reduces stress caused by social anxiety disorders and a review by Frontiers in Immunology concluded that the anti-stress effects of CBD can reduce depression.
With products such as bath bombs, scented candles, face masks, and serums in high demand among women looking to relieve day-to-day stress through pampering experiences, it only makes sense to heighten the efficiency of these experiences by adding CBD.
Adding CBD to Bath and Beauty Products Makes a Difference
One benefit bath bombs, face masks, and serums have in common is that they’re topical applications, which means the CBD will penetrate the skin without getting into the bloodstream. You can learn more about why topical applications are ideal here.
Typically, the effect of scented candles comes from inhaling the scent. At Green Grove, we’ve evolved that experience by creating scented candles that double as massage oils. Our massage candles are made with CBD, essential oils, and organic body butters. Instead of melting into wax, our candles slow burn into massage oils that can be used all over the body. They come in three scents that correlate with different concerns: immune, relax, and revive.
Our bath bombs also come in three scents (immune, relax, and energize) and contain 25mg of CBD.
In addition to aiding with anxiety, stress, and depression, bath and beauty CBD products such as our massage candles and bath bombs are ideal for:
- nourishing the skin,
- reducing pain,
- relieving muscle soreness, and
- improving mental clarity.
The place where women are most likely to see the physical symptoms of stress is on their face. Redness, acne, blemishes, and discoloration are all signs of imbalance in the body. Using face masks and serums with CBD can help significantly reduce these symptoms while restoring and rejuvenating the skin’s health. A major perk of using CBD on your face is that it’s ideal for all skin types — including sensitive, acne-prone skin — at every life stage.
