Turing CBD oil into a CBD lip balm.
Recently, we have found a brilliant article showing us how to turn our Flora-Fusion oil into a CBD Salve and it doesn't require a PHD in advanced chemistry. There are a couple of steps to this but all you will need is 1 small cup of premium CBD oil (which you can find by clicking here), 1 ounce of Beeswax and 1 ounce of Shea Butter. Added to that, find yourself a couple of lip-balm tins, follow the instructions in the article and you will be able to make yourself your very own portable, easy to apply CBD lip balm or CBD ointment. What we have found with our own efforts at making a CBD salve, is that the oil itself spreads very far. A couple of little tins will last for ages and could be brilliant little CBD gifts for your family and friends. We have tried a couple of CBD salve recipes and this one is a good'un.

Topical CBD Ointment.
CBD has been associated aiding those with 'general wellbeing' when suffering from long-term health/pain conditions. We know plenty of CBD oil users who have attributed CBD products with a huge reduction in their suffering from chronic pain and inflammatory conditions. So, if you're in the office on one of those cold winter days and you can feel the age in your hands, a topical hand balm could be a perfect natural strategy to help hand wellbeing. A good use that we have found for a CBD ointment is a reduction of skin itching from skin conditions. We suggest that you consult with a health professional before trying any natural remedies for yourself, however, I myself suffer from dermatitis. When I get a flare up it can feel as if my skin is crawling and it can be very uncomfortable. What works for me is a small topical dose of CBD ointment on the affected areas can really ease the itching. Here is an article on the very subject.
