It’s a well documented fact that we could all use a little de-stressing after a long, agonizing year and many of the typical ways we unwind have been heavily restricted or shut down completely.
In fact, the American Psychological Association, which surveys Americans yearly on their stress levels, has reported a profound uptick in stress throughout the country due to the looming pandemic.
While we, as a public, eagerly await solutions to the problem, there is an urgent need for help in coping with unprecedented levels of stress that the year 2020 provided.
As we’ve written about before, CBD does have a calming effect that can help reduce stress in the brain, especially where paired with a soothing ingredient like lavender.
However, we’d like to take it a step further and combine our CBD products with one of the time-tested, proven methods for reducing stress, a spa night.
Here are some of our products that could be incorporated into a DIY spa night at home that incorporates relaxation with the powerful effects of CBD.
CBD Muscle Rub
Whether it’s back strain from sitting at your home desk all day, or soreness from the sudden inspiration to complete a 90-day workout program, the CBD muscle rub from Social CBD is the perfect start to a relaxing evening.
To create our bestselling rub, our product development team started with the purest hemp-derived CBD and then added additional ingredients like Aloe, Vitamin E, and Tea Tree oil to produce additional relaxing effects.
This rub provides an almost instant cooling effect that soothes muscles, and as the CBD begins to work through your system, the relaxing benefits have a long, very satisfying effect on your entire body.
Whether you’re treating yourself, or trying to give some much needed pampering to your partner, incorporating the CBD muscle rub is a great way to start your moment of relaxation.
CBD Body Lotion
This luxurious CBD lotion was crafted to be deeply relaxing, helping you fall asleep faster. Our CBD lotion is infused with power ingredients along with CBD, like magnesium and arnica, which support the relaxation process. As a bonus, the moisturizing effect of the lotion, due to the shea butter and coconut oil added, also provides a soothing effect on the skin.
To top off the indulgence of relaxation, Social CBD has added essential oils like lavender and chamomile to provide the added benefit of aromatherapy to help put the user in the right mindset for relaxation.
Lavender CBD Oil Drops
As we’ve detailed before, researchers studying the scent of lavender have reported that the smell of lavender has a positive, calming effect in our brains.
For a perfect spa night, we recommend adding the drops to a warm cup of tea (Chamomile tea is our favorite) to follow the muscle relaxation rub and body lotion application.
With these 3 products, we can’t guarantee the rest of 2021 will be less stressful, but never look past the mental and physical benefits of a good spa night. Even if it is at home.
