CBD is a hot topic today for its significant medicinal benefits, however recently I have found CBD and Essential oils are better together. This is the latest trend in Europe and CBD companies are starting to catch on in the US.
Why Combine CBD With Essential Oils?
Essential oils are primarily comprised of organic compounds called Terpenes. Terpenes work along with CBD in the body’s Endocannabinoid System. It’s important here to know what the Endocannabinoid System is and what it does. This is a system in our bodies comprised of receptors that interact exclusively with cannabinoids like CBD.
The main function of the Endocannabinoid System is to maintain biological harmony in response to changes in the environment and are one of the most versatile signaling molecules. Both CBD and Terpenes influence receptors throughout the body’s Endocannabinoid System in order to regulate things like pain, sleep, mood, memory, appetite, and inflammation. So, what this really means is that much of our health and well-being is regulated by the Endocannabinoid System.
We produce our own endocannabinoids which send messages between cells throughout our body but plants produce cannabinoids, such as CBD, that can supplement our own supply. Plants also produce Terpenes that work within the same system. Combining both CBD and Essential oils together in a product can result in the highest effectiveness in targeting specific needs.
Note*** CBD is a natural cannabis compound and is non-psychoactive and CANNOT make you high.
Targeting Specific Conditions
Sleep: CBD holds potential for enhancing sleep, but adding Essential oils in conjunction with CBD can promote relaxation and a quality night’s rest. One of the most popular Essential oils for sleep is Lavender. Lavender has been shown to relieve stress and induce sleep and many use this oil for its calming effects.
Relaxation and Restoration: A combination of CBD, Eucalyptus, and Jasmine Essential oil is a natural way to heighten the possible relaxation effects of CBD, which can help elevate the effectiveness rather than just using one of them alone.
Muscle Pain & Soreness: A great blend for joint pain is CBD combined with Marjoram, Sweet Basil, and Frankincense Essential Oils. Due to potency, a carrier oil is normally added, such as sweet almond oil or jojoba oil.
Anxiety: CBD with Chamomile Essential oil can be used to reduce anxiety, insomnia, and acts as a mild sedative.
Enhances Mood: CBD mixed with Lemon Essential oil can help rejuvenate when feeling sluggish, alleviate stress and reduce fatigue. Another option is CBD and Peppermint Essential oil which can enhance mood and memory, and increase alertness.
CBD and Essential Oil Products
Some of the products available that contain CBD and Essential oils together are:
CBD Oils combined with Essential Oils – Essential oils include terpenes, which are organic compounds that help improve the overall absorption of CBD by your body. When certain terpenes are combined with CBD, they can tackle exact medical conditions. Essential oils also add yummy flavors to CBD oils, so that you enjoy the overall CBD experience.
CBD, Essential Oil and Goat Milk Creams – Not only do you get the benefits of CBD and Goat Milk, you also get a blend of essential oils and terpenes chosen for their specific benefits… and the cream is transdermal, which means it soaks deeply into your skin for full impact. This is one of my favorites as it leaves your skin super soft plus pure CBD Cream has no additives so you can apply it to the most sensitive skin.

Choose A Reputable CBD Company
New companies are popping up all the time. It’s hard to know who to trust, and trust is important. After all, these products are going in or on your body. I personally am researching products with a family owned company that oversees the whole growing and bottling process and delivers the product straight to your door.
They plant from seed to harvest
They test everything with licensed, 3rd-party labs to ensure that it is pure
They oversee the crafting of all products in facilities that meet all health regulations
They deliver it directly to you
I also look for the highest quality hemp including:
It’s grown in nutrient-rich soil
Soaked with natural sunlight
Therapeutic grade for the most medical benefits
Pesticide-free, chemical-free, and all-natural
Planted and tended by hand
For anyone new to CBD, it’s not to be confused with medical marijuana. It contains no psychoactive effects and no high. Its benefits combined with Essential oils can improve symptoms and also effectively treat many underlying causes.
CBD and Essential oils have an impact that is greater than the sum of their parts. Both are better together. I am in the process of testing some CBD products combined with Essential oils and plan to write my own personal review soon on my experience using the products. I’m excited to see the results.
