Turn your bathroom into a spa with organic hemp products.

Thanks to the United States’ recent legalization of hemp, this useful plant is making its way into a variety of beauty and wellness products. The Cannabis sativa plant is proving useful for everything, from calming your nerves to giving your skin a youthful glow. Hemp can also make your bathroom a heaven on earth. Here are just a few organic hemp products that can turn your abode into a spa-like environment.

A CBD Bath Bomb for Your Aches and Pains?

Science is showing that cannabis can be good for your skin, from reducing inflammation and redness, to calming irritation. In fact, this study published in La Clinica Terapeutica (2019),[1]Palmieri, B, et al. “A Therapeutic Effect of Cbd-Enriched Ointment in Inflammatory Skin Diseases and Cutaneous Scars.” La Clinica Terapeutica, U.S. National Library of Medicine, 2019, … Continue readingfound that CBD helped soothe symptoms of inflammatory skin disorders, without any harmful side effects. This cannabinoid also acts as a natural antioxidant, which can protect the skin against photodamage.

A study published in the European Journal of Pain (2016),[2]Hammell, D C, et al. “Transdermal Cannabidiol Reduces Inflammation and Pain-Related Behaviours in a Rat Model of Arthritis.” European Journal of Pain (London, England), U.S. National Library of … Continue reading also discovered that CBD relieved arthritis pain and inflammation in rats. What does this all mean? A hot bath treated with CBD could be just the ticket to relieving aches and pains, while giving your skin some much-needed TLC.

Organic Hemp Products For Your Scalp

Science is still catching up with all of the ways CBD can be beneficial for your body, and it has yet to nail down how it improves hair growth, strength and luster. But, this much we do know — CBD can help relieve dryness and inflammation, which both contribute to hair loss and breakage.

And, as dermatologists have noted, there are no apparent side effects to using CBD topically. A product worth adding to your haircare regimen is KOAL CBD Shampoo and Conditioner. It contains 250mg of CBD, that when massaged into your scalp, could reduce dryness and help encourage a lustrous head of hair. At the very least, it’s not harmful to try, and it’s also rich with antioxidants. Further, research published in Scientific Reports (2019)[3]Paul, R., Williams, R., Hodson, V., & Peake, C. (2019). Detection of cannabinoids in hair after cosmetic application of hemp oil. Scientific reports, 9(1), 2582. … Continue readingfound that cannabinoids were present in the hair of 89 percent of those trying a cosmetic application of hemp oil.

Hemp for Clean and Replenished Skin

Not only can CBD be beneficial for the skin, so can hemp seed oil. Made from the seeds of the hemp plant, this oil doesn’t contain any cannabinoids. But it is rich with omega-9, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for the strength and protection of your body’s skin barrier.

This study at Oregon State University (2020) [4]Angelo, Giana. “Essential Fatty Acids and Skin Health.” Oregon State University, Neutrogena Corporation, 2 Jan. 2020, found that omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids protect the skin from photodamage and photoaging, which can cause inflammation and cell death. Organic hemp products with hemp seed oil can relieve inflammation by providing the skin with these much needed essential fatty acids, along with a high dose of vitamin E.

That’s what makes organic hemp CBD products a good option for everyday use in cleaning your skin. They aren’t harmful, and along with getting rid of dirt, may help replenish the skin. For a exfoliator that is compatible with all skin types, try KOAL sugar scrub. Follow up with a CBD moisturizer by the same company, and you’ve got a powerful skin replenishing duo!

Sustainable Hemp Cloth

The Cannabis sativa plant is proving to be a sustainable option. This is not only for its healing qualities, but its usefulness as a fiber. It has been used to create clothing, paper products, and textiles. And now that it is legal in the United States, we’re only just beginning to see how it can be incorporated into every day use.

Just one way you can bring hemp fiber into your bathroom is this using a hemp scrubby sponge. It works as a great exfoliator, which does wonders for the skin. But, it’s also good for the planet. Hemp products, like this one, are biodegradable. This is contrast to plastic sponges, which can dump microfibers into water sources. If your skin is sensitive to chemicals, this organic hemp product will be more gentle. It doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or petroleum.

Moisturizing with Hemp

We’ve already seen here that organic hemp products containing CBD and hemp seed oil can relieve dryness and inflammation. Overall, this shows that the ingredients from the whole hemp plant are a good option for rejuvenating the skin. So why not keep that rejuvenation going with a moisturizing CBD-infused lotion?

Hemp-derived products can help moisturize the skin and protect it from harmful environmental irritants. Further, they can present a gentler option for patients suffering from hard-to-treat skin conditions. A study published in the Journal of Dermatological Science (2007),[5]Wilkinson, Jonathan, and Elizabeth Williamson. “Cannabinoids Inhibit Human Keratinocyte Proliferation through a Non-CB1/CB2 Mechanism and Have a Potential Therapeutic Value in the Treatment of … Continue readingfound that cannabis can slow the spread of psoriasis, by inhibiting the keratinocyte. Science is also showing that CBD may help soothe eczema.
