Self-Soothing, Warming Muscle Rub
Working from home takes a lot of discipline, never mind some serious stretching. At LEVO HQ, we suggest taking breaks and making time to care for our bodies.
March’s Herbalist of the Month, Sha Hannah-Santo, has the recipe for enjoying the intention of self-soothing our own bodies. Her warming muscle rub includes CBD for an added benefit to relax and recover. Check it out below.
1-2 cups sunflower oil or olive oil
500mg CBD isolate powder
2-3 tablespoons of “Hots” mixture of diced dried chilis, habanero (cayenne (red pepper) flakes are fine too)
1 teaspoon Arnica flower or oil
1 tablespoons beeswax or camellia
1/2 table spoon mango or Shea butter
1 teaspoon of dried eucalyptus (or 10 drops eucalyptus essential oil)
1 teaspoon dried lavender (or 5 drops essential oil)
5 drops turmeric oil
Fill pod 2-3 tablespoons of “Hots” mixture. Add 1-2 cups of sunflower oil olive oil to LEVO reservoir. (Optional add of dried eucalyptus and/or lavender)
Set temperature to 160-175°F and infuse for 1-2 hours.
Upon completion, remove the pod and add CBD isolate, beeswax and butters to melt.
