Consuming and applying plants and vitamins are the most natural way to nourish your body, to keep you healthy and happy.
Of course, one of our favorite plant compounds is cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD. This extract for the hemp plant helps to support your Endocannabinoid System or ECS. The system is responsible for monitoring and regulating your mood, digestion, and both the nervous and immune systems. Some studies suggest that CBD empowers your ECS to help your body reduce inflammation, pain, and anxiety.
Topical Oils & Extracts
One of our favorites is rosehip seed oil. This powerful little red fruit (shown in the cover image) is loaded with anti-aging properties for your skin. It can help to reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and helps reduce skin hyperpigmentation due to the skin-lightening lycopene and beta carotene within. In addition, rosehip seed oil is extremely hydrating, exfoliating, and skin brightening.
Another powerful anti-aging ingredient is rosemary leaf extract. It contains antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It is even known to enhance immune function, strengthen capillaries throughout the body and stimulate cell growth to lessen the effects of aging.
Commonly known coconut oil can actually help to reverse skin damage, increases collagen production, and helps the skin retain moisture. It is also skin softening, is packed with antioxidants, and is anti-inflammatory.
Jojoba seed oil is unique in that it is non comedogenic, meaning that it mimics your body’s natural moisturizing mechanism so less oil is produced. It also helps your skin fight oxidative stress, is antibacterial, and contains natural Vitamin E.
Lavender flower oil can reduce the appearance of scars, is anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antimicrobial. It also contains detoxifying properties.
The above oils and extracts can be found in our Muscle & Joint Salve. See our full list of plants and vitamins here.
