Discover how to use CBD oil in homemade natural beauty products to harness its powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects to help with acne, aging, and much more.

CBD (cannabidiol) has become hugely popular as a beauty ingredient, especially when combined with other wonderful botanical ingredients. CBD is one of the most powerful parts of the cannabis and hemp plant and is immensely helpful for skincare needs including acne, aging, and skin irritation. CBD has no psychoactive activity, unlike THC which is the psychoactive chemical element of the plant. This means you can benefit from the therapeutic effects of CBD without any other effects. Not only a medicinal aid, CBD can also be used in an oil within your beauty products and treatments since it is rich in antioxidants as well as having brilliant anti-inflammatory properties. The CBD Beauty Book shows you how to incorporate CBD oil into a range of homemade beauty products for your face, body, and hair, all made with natural, vegan, and nut-free ingredients which are kinder to your skin and to the environment. Recipes include an anti-aging rosehip serum, anti-inflammatory mango face mask, vanilla-enriched body butter, arnica muscle massage oil, and lavender sleep spray.
