Herbal Healing Salves with CBD isolate pack a major punch against inflammation.
For many years I've been dreaming about creating a product that could help my clients with their muscle, joint, and nerve pain. During my herbal training, I discovered fantastic infused oils and botanicals that inspired me to create these three formulas which help address many of the common issues my clients have. While CBD is exciting, I'm most excited about the botanicals from the infusions and the essential oils that I know you'll love.
Dreaming up a superior herbal product that could help my clients with some of their most common complains that also is delightful to their senses was my goal!
Warming and cooling botanicals.
Cooling + Circulating
I love this combination of herbal botanicals. Arnica, St. Johns wort, and calendula have been used traditionally for helping with both acute and chronic pain. The essential oils work in synergy to help cool and soothe.
Warming + Circulating
This balm acts similarly but opposite to the cooling salve. Arnica, St. Johns wort, and calendula praised in the herbal world for helping with both acute and chronic pain. The essential oils work in synergy to help warm and move circulation and stagnation.
Arnica + Lavender + Peppermint
Arnica is a great anti-inflammatory herb, combined with CBD and pure essential oils of Lavender agustifolia and Peppermint. I see this as a great headache helper and an overall wellness balm.
Coming Soon! Comfrey Infused Salve
I'm in my first stage of infusing this beautiful comfrey plant from my garden to be featured in my next herbal healing salve. Look for it towards the end of May or early June.
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant.
CBD has been valued for being non-psychoactive with promising medicinal effects. From a 2013 review in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, CBD has a wide range of medical benefits. The ones that inspired me to create herbal balms containing this compound are:
- Anti-inflammatory – Eliminates pain and reduces swelling
- Analgesic – Combats pain.
- Antioxidant- Improving skin health and rejuvenating its appearance.
Is CBD Illegal?
CBD products are legal as long as they have under 0.03% THC, another naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. THC is solely responsible for the "high" people get from ingesting the herb or products made with the cannabis plant. To ensure confidence, I use a compound of CBD that contains zero THC.
I have done a lot of reading on this topic due to the ambiguity in the laws surrounding cannabidiol. This link is particularly helpful.
