You might have noticed, if you’ve tried any of our products, that we love essential oils! The incredible scent you smell when you apply our Pain, Pain, Go Away or Not This Month cream comes from Lavender and Rose Essential Oils. When you take a bath with our Go Away I’m Fizzy bath bomb, you’re inhaling the soothing scents of Lavender, Jasmine and Geranium!
What are essential oils, exactly, and are you getting any benefit beyond your nose from using them? Let’s dive into this common question!
How Each of These Oils Enhances CBD Benefits
Lavender has been used since the era of ancient Rome, found in bath houses and royal spas for what many believe to be its relaxing and calming aroma. The aroma was so popular that lavender became one of the first perfumes created by the Greeks, still holding a spot in the hearts and minds of everyone needing a bit of calm during hectic times.
Aside from the aromatic benefits, lavender oil may provide the calming effects when taken orally, although we found the best use is topically as you can get the same results while also soothing your skin.
Jasmine oil from Jasminun officinale, aka the beautiful white flowers of the jasmine plant can be found in our bath bomb. Jasmine rivals lavender for some of the best smelling aromatics, but jasmine oil found more success in the fragrance world by being the chosen oil for the famous Chanel No. 5.
Having such a powerfully wonderful scent has also lent jasmine oil to be used for aromatherapy, maybe even providing natural relief. Jasmine Essential Oil pairs beautifully with CBD, potentially increasing the calming benefits of this soothing bath routine.
Geranium has a soothing aroma that can knock the edge off of a stressful day. Where geranium oil truly shines is through nourishment of the skin. Used heavily for natural massages, the oil helps to clean and clear the skin of debris and irritants which opens up the path for it to start beautifying and adding a healthy glow.
The combination of all three of these essential oils make our Go Away, I’m Fizzy the addition to our CBD skincare lineup needed to round out an amazing night of treating yourself.
