5 Surprising Uses For CBD Massage Oil 

As a front runner of the green wellness evolution, CBD oil has generated a lot of attention for its wide range of benefits. With all the buzz around CBD, potential health benefits are being unearthed all the time, with promising applications in beauty, fitness, and total body wellness. Our all-natural CBD massage oil has a wide variety of surprising uses that you can try today.

2. DIY Nourishing Hair Growth Treatment

No matter how many salon products you buy or supplements you take, your hair just isn’t growing! We know how frustrating this can be, especially when you’ve spent an obscene amount of money on hair products with nothing to show for it. Luckily, we have a DIY hair treatment that works on all hair types to stimulate hair growth, moisturize dry strands, and strengthen damaged locks- all while leaving your hair looking and feeling silky smooth.  

The reason that CBD is so effective for hair growth and renewed moisture is that it contains 3 essential fatty acids: Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9, as well as 21 amino acids. Essential fatty acids have been proven to promote hair growth and smooth the cuticle of the hair for locked-in moisture that lasts, while amino acids provide the building blocks to repair brittle, damaged hair.

As a bonus, CBD also helps to improve scalp health by soothing dry, itchy, and flaky scalps. It also helps regulate sebum production, making it ideal for dry, normal, and oily hair scalps. 

Errbshop’s CBD massage oil is an especially effective delivery system because the heated soy wax will gently open the hair’s cuticles, allowing the oil to penetrate more deeply into the hair shaft for maximum benefits. Plus, our premium blend features ingredients that are universally nourishing for all hair types, which include:

  • Coconut oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Jojoba oil
  • Shea butter
  • Avocado oil
  • Apricot oil

What You’ll Need

  • 1-4 tablespoons errb+ or rb+ CBD Massage Oil (depending on hair length and texture)
  • A plastic shower cap

Bonus Add-Ins:

  • 2-3 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons castor oil

How To Use

  1. Shampoo and towel dry hair. 
  2. Apply the CBD massage oil to your hair, concentrating on the ends and working your way up to the roots. 
  3. Comb the CBD massage oil through your hair to ensure even distribution.
  4. Wrap your hair with the plastic shower cap to trap in heat to seal moisture deep into the cuticle.
  5. Leave on for at least 15 minutes, then rinse with cool water, follow up with your favorite styling products, and style as usual. For optimal results or if your hair is especially damaged, leave the DIY treatment in your hair overnight and rinse it out in the morning.

2. DIY Acne Treatment

With a variety of benefits for both hair and skin, CBD oil has shown major promise in the beauty world. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD oil make it especially effective at naturally combating acne and breakouts, especially for those with sensitive or dry skin. While it may seem counterintuitive to put oil on acne-prone skin, CBD is non-comedogenic and can actually decrease the amount of acne-causing sebum present in the skin, making it an ideal treatment even for those with oily skin types.

Because many over the counter acne treatments contain drying active ingredients, they aren’t the most ideal solution for those who have dry or sensitive skin. Errbshop’s soothing blend of vitamin E, avocado oil, coconut oil, and apricot oil amplify the nourishing effects of CBD, with the added benefit of reducing redness and scarring. 

Our DIY acne treatment was designed to fight acne and deeply nourish skin to give you an acne-free, radiant glow. Raw honey and tea tree essential oil will help kill acne-causing bacteria and cleanse pores, amplifying the positive effects of our CBD massage oil for a renewed, luminous glow.

What You’ll Need

  • 1 teaspoon unscented CBD massage oil
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • 1-2 drops tea tree essential oil

How To Use 

  1. In a bowl, combine the CBD massage oil, raw honey, and tea tree oil and mix until combined.
  2. Wash your face with your favorite cleanser and pat dry.
  3. Gently exfoliate skin with your favorite exfoliator, or make your own with 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil.
  4. On dry skin, apply the DIY treatment to your face and leave on for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Rinse your face with warm water and enjoy your fresh glow!

3. Soothe Sore Feet & Make Heels More Comfortable

Sore, aching feet after a long day of work is the unfortunate reality of professionals that are on their feet all day. Waitresses, retail workers, hairstylists, and nurses are all too familiar with painful, aching feet after a long shift. Thankfully, CBD’s natural anti-inflammatory effect lends itself incredibly well to soothing sore feet. Not only can using CBD massage oil after a long shift help your feet recover, but it can also help you completely decompress and leave all the stress of work behind you.

Aching feet is also one of the necessary evils that come with wearing a stunning pair of stilettos. And, if you’re like us, you love a good pair of sky-high heels- but can’t always hack the discomfort that comes with it. Massaging your feet with CBD oil before a big night out can help you stay in your heels all night, even if you’re someone that usually isn’t able to make it past the front door. It might seem too good to be true, but it’s a trick Hollywood stylists swear by! Plus, our quick-absorbing CBD massage oil will give your feet a dose of moisture, leaving them luxuriously soft to the touch.

How To Use 

Before you leave for your night out or workday, take 1-2 teaspoons of your favorite errbshop CBD massage oil and massage it onto your feet, focusing on the soles. Keep massaging for about a minute or two, or until it absorbs completely into the skin. After it dries, slide on your shoes and get ready to tackle your plans with ease.

4. Break Out Of A Skin Care Rut

Do you feel like no matter how many masks or treatments you use, your skin still winds up looking drab and dull? Sometimes, we need to update our skincare routine to renew our glow. The nourishing antioxidants and glow-boosting botanicals in our CBD massage oil will wake up your skin for a more luminous, youthful complexion.

To invigorate tired, dull skin we often don’t need to look farther than our refrigerators. Like CBD, many common food items contain vital antioxidants and nourishing peptides to give your skin a natural boost in collagen production and unparalleled moisture. Our DIY treatments feature our revitalizing CBD massage oil combined with natural ingredients to help you overcome your biggest skin concerns.

What You’ll Need

  • Hot towel
  • 1 teaspoon errb+ unscented CBD massage oil 

For Brighter Skin & More Even Skin Tone

  • Juice from ½ lemon
  • 1 teaspoon greek yogurt 

For Aging Skin & Tighter Pores

  • Egg whites from one egg
  • 1 teaspoon milk

For Sensitive Skin & Deep Moisture

  • 1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
  • ¼ cucumber pureed

How To Use

  • Combine 1 teaspoon errb+ unscented CBD massage oil with the ingredients of your choice and stir to combine.
  • Wash your face with your favorite cleanser and then apply the hot towel to your face, leaving on until cool.
  • On dry skin, apply the DIY treatment that addresses your skin concern and leave on for 20 minutes.
  • Rinse with warm water and apply a few drops of CBD massage oil to your face for long-lasting radiance.

5. Improve Workout Performance & Speed Up Recovery

If you’re an avid gym junkie like us, you’re always looking for ways to maximize your workout potential and performance. But, it can be hard to keep up with your workouts if your muscles are still sore from your previous workout. Contrary to popular belief, sore muscles aren’t always an indicator of a good workout and can even impede future performance. The best way to prevent this is to focus on muscle recovery. Adding CBD oil to your pre or post-workout regimen can speed up how quickly you’re able to gain strength and build muscle by enhancing the recovery process.

In addition to having anti-inflammatory properties, CBD is also anti-catabolic, which means it regulates the amount of cortisol in the body post-workout. Cortisol is a stress hormone that can reduce protein synthesis, prevent the growth of new muscle tissue, and even increase the amount of fat your body stores. In other words, too much cortisol in the body will derail your progress. CBD oil prevents this from happening by regulating and reducing the level of cortisol that stays in the body post-workout, which will encourage protein synthesis and muscle regeneration for maximum muscle-growing potential.

How To Use

Before your workout, rub ½-1 teaspoon of CBD massage oil into the areas you plan on training. For example, if you’re training your upper body, massage the oil onto your chest, back, and arms. If you are training lower body, you would massage your legs, glutes, and lower back. For a total body workout, rub a small amount of CBD massage oil onto all of your major muscle groups: back, chest, arms, legs, and glutes.

After your workout, you will do the same thing, again focusing on the areas that you just trained. A CBD candle massage can be especially soothing after an Epsom salt soak to help your muscles optimally recover so you’re ready to hit your next workout just as hard.

In Summary

CBD massage oil is a valuable tool that can help you achieve optimal wellness. It can revitalize your beauty routine, help you work out more efficiently, and promote a sense of total body wellness in the process. Our premium line of CBD massage oil candles gives you plenty of options to choose from so you can get the perfect oil for your unique beauty and wellness needs.
