4 DIY CBD Beauty Product Recipes You Can Make at Home

CBD is an active compound of the cannabis sativa plant, and unlike THC, it doesn’t come with any psychoactive effects. According to The Journal of Clinical Investigation, CBD has properties that are effective at fighting acne and staving off signs of aging. Another research from the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology shows that topical CBD has the potential to alleviate symptoms of different skin conditions, which include psoriasis and eczema.

Given these findings, CBD oil would be a beneficial addition to one’s skincare regimen. A lot of skincare brands have started to create lines that use CBD as a star ingredient. However, these products usually come at an unnecessarily hefty price tag. You can add CBD oil to your skincare regimen without having to spend so much with these easy DIY recipes for CBD-infused beauty products.

CBD Body Butter

Looking for a beauty product that will effectively hydrate your body? CBD-infused body butter can do the trick. Here’s what you have to prepare:

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup cocoa butter or mango butter (depending on your preference)
  • ½ cup jojoba, almond, or olive oil
  • 1-3 grams of CBD oil
  • ½ cup shea butter
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 10-30 drops of your preferred essential oils for extra scent (Optional)

Directions:

  1. Prepare a double boiler and put all the ingredients except for the CBD oil and essential oil.
  2. Put the mass on and stir all the ingredients until everything is melted and fully combined.
  3. After that, add the CBD oil.
  4. Let the mixture cool down for a bit, then add the essential oils.
  5. Put the bowl in the fridge for an hour. The mixture should come together. Don’t leave it too long because it will become rock solid.
  6. Use a hand mixer to whip out the mixture.
  7. Beat it for 10 minutes until it becomes fluffy.
  8. After that, get a jar or any clean container to put the finished product in.
  9. Put it in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  10. You can just store it in a place with room temperature. Make sure to keep it away from your heater to avoid melting the oils.

Cannabis Face Scrub

This is another CBD beauty product you can try to make at home. Prep the following ingredients, most of which are already in your kitchen cupboard.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon jojoba or almond oil
  • 1 gram cannabis oil

  1. Choose the most suitable base for your skin type:

  3. Combine the raw honey, oil of your choice, and CBD oil.
  4. You now have a cannabis facial scrub. Enjoy!
  5. This amount is for one-time use only because it doesn’t have a long shelf life like the body butter.
