Coronavirus and CBD–Self care 1: Stress Management
We need to emphasize that we are in the midst of a world-wide health crisis, not just a US health crisis. Without overstating the obvious two points remain clear: 1) the disruption level caused by covid-19 is global in scope and will remain so for some time, and 2) the response needs to be global in scope, requiring an unprecedented level of coordination and cooperation between the world’s governments.
Neither of these points are within the control or purview of any of us individually but they are both within the control of us collectively. We find ourselves rapidly adapting to a new normal, and adapting to a new set of cultural norms. Face masks, gloves, social distancing, toilet paper shortages, impending food shortages, working from home, and social isolation are simply the tip of the iceberg of the new normal and the new norms that have been shaped by the pandemic. All of this creates overwhelming stress, so let’s discuss three stress management ideas for this particular situation.
Exercise—This is an activity that can be done in isolation. Ride your bike or go for a walk if the weather permits and after apply our Hemp Healing CBD salve to sore muscles. Use our Hemp Healing lip balm on dry, cracked lips. For deeper relief use our Liposomal CBD cream. Regular, daily exercise is an excellent practice for relieving stress.
Aromatherapy —Essential oils have been used for thousands of years in folk medicine, and today are used in aromatherapy, a type of alternative medicine that focuses on improving and enhancing mood and psychological well being. It turns out that essential oils combined with CBD in wellness products is a natural symbiotic marriage, and we at DaCrema Botanicals offer a number of Hemp Healing CBD-infused aromatherapeutic products.
Peppermint—One of the most important essential oils in aromatherapy, peppermint contains mood enhancing and mood elevating properties. Try our Hemp Healing CBD salt scrub with peppermint during a bath or shower, especially after a vigorous workout. For massage try our Hemp Healing CBD massage oil, with peppermint, lavender and other essential oils. And our Hemp Healing CBD lip balm is infused with peppermint essential oil.
Lavender—Another of the most important of the essential oils, known for its healing properties along with its mood enhancing properties, is best known as a mood relaxer. Our most popular product, our Hemp Healing CBD salve, contains a complex blend of medicinal essential oils, but the most prominent is lavender.
Hemp Healing CBD Sublingual Drops–Taken regularly our Hemp Healing sublingual drops promote sleep, reduce anxiety, enhance mood, and regulate the endocannabinoid system. It is established scientific fact that stress depletes endocannabinoids. Our sublingual CBD drops actually target the central nervous system, and specifically those CNS neurotransmitters responsible for mood, emotional balance, and stress management.
For stress management we recommend exercise, aromatherapy, and our DaCrema Botanicals line of Hemp Healing products.
