30 Jan How to Make DIY CBD Hemp Oil Topicals
CBD topicals are a popular means of using CBD products. The CBD hemp oil salves from RSHO™ and Dixie Botanicals® offered in the HempMeds® store are hit with our customers, but occasionally, we have customers looking to increase the level of CBD available in our hemp oil salves.
In today’s post, we will show you how to use RSHO™ Blue and Gold Label pure CBD hemp oil oral applicators or RSHO-X™ zero-THC liquid to create your own custom CBD topicals, tailored to your specific needs.
In order to use RSHO™ pure CBD hemp oils for topical application, it is best to blend the CBD hemp oil with a carrier oil. Customers will often use coconut oil as their carrier of choice, but jojoba, sweet almond, or even olive oil can also be used.
For single applications, you can add your carrier oil to the desired area first, using enough to wet the skin without becoming excessively oily. Then, immediately rub the RSHO™ into the area, blending the RSHO™ and carrier oils as you do, massaging deeply into the skin. After application, we suggest covering the area with a gauze pad or wrap to keep the RSHO™ from staining clothing or furniture.
A quarter gram of RSHO™ is enough for a small area, like a foot, knee, elbow, or hand. For larger areas, like the shoulder or back, a half gram of RSHO™ provides greater coverage. When using RSHO™ pure hemp oil, this method provides between 42 and 120 mg of CBD per application, depending on the label used and the amount applied.
You can also create your own CBD-infused shea butter balm using MCT oil-based RSHO™ Liquids. The total CBD count per batch for this recipe is 62 mg. However, using the 8 oz. RSHO-X™ increases this level to 156 mg of CBD per batch.
To create your CBD-infused balm, you’ll need the following:
- 1 1/2 teaspoon RSHO™ CBD Liquid
- 1 1/2 teaspoon beeswax, grated
- 1 1/2 teaspoon shea butter
- 10 drops of essential oil, like lavender, eucalyptus, or peppermint
Melt beeswax and shea butter in microwave-safe bowl for about one minute. Stir in RSHO™ CBD Liquid and essential oils, pour into desired container, and allow to set. Once hardened, your homemade DIY CBD hemp oil topical is ready to use and can be massaged into the skin, muscles, and joints for desired effects.
