Valentine's Day Self-Care With CBD

As purveyors of CBD and self-proclaimed wellness enthusiasts, it seems only fitting that we’d have a unique, if not slightly self-indulgent, take on Valentine’s Day. While we wholeheartedly believe that self-care should be a part of our daily routine, it’s easy to get lost in the external chaos of hectic schedules and social demands. There’s no better day to unapologetically sit back, relax, and listen to the needs of our bodies and minds than Valentine’s Day. Here are a few of our favorite ways to spend it with CBD...

Feel Your Heartbeat
Start your day with a jog outdoors or in the studio with a yoga session. Our bodies crave touch, nourishment, and movement and what better day to thank your physical self than Valentine’s Day? Post-workout, soothe sore muscles with Dr. Kerklaan Natural Pain Cream and a dropper of the Standard Dose Tincture, which we love for reducing inflammation and remaining balanced throughout the day.

Soak With CBD
After a day of career and familial obligations, there are few things more refreshing than a warm bath. This Valentine’s Day, elevate your bathing routine by dropping in a pouch of CBD Bath Salts from Vertly to relieve tension. Smelling predominantly of lemongrass, these CBD bath salts are the perfect way to unwind and escape. Turn on quiet music or let your thoughts come and go with the help of your favorite meditation app. 

Hydrate Your Body
Living and working in busy New York City, we know it’s sometimes easy to forget that our body needs a few critical things to operate like sleep, food, and, above all, water. Keep your body and mind nimble and clear by drinking H2O throughout your day. For a boost of hydration, consider a gentle post-bath massage with Copious Body Serum from Khus + Khus and keep lips soft with CBD lip balm from Vertly.

Relax With A Nightcap & Mask
Imagine this: you’re fully relaxed after your CBD bath. Post-soak, you light your Kush Candle from Boy Smells, apply your Overnight Exfoliating Mask from Hora, pour a CBD Drinking Botanical from Monk Provisions, turn off your mind and turn on your favorite romantic comedy (or horror flick… it’s YOUR day for self-love, right?)  

No matter how you celebrate Valentine’s Day, be sure to make yourself a priority- you deserve it! And while we love all things CBD, be mindful of your milligram intake throughout the day and listen to the needs of your body and mind.
