The Many Uses of Wildflower CBD Oil

Cannabis, Product Review

Support the immune system with this versatile herbally fortified CBD oil.

Wildflower’s CBD+ Orange Mint tincture provides a large dose of CBD charged with a pleasant flavor. Like the Tropical Fruit tincture, this product uses coconut oil rather than alcohol like a traditional ‘tincture’. What this provides is a completely vegan, alcohol-free CBD oil that can be used in a bounty of ways. I use my 1000mg CBD+ oil as a daily supplement to promote overall health & reduce inflammation, for help with my joint and muscle pain, and even in my baked goods for a little extra relaxation with the sugar high.

Every product in the CBD+ line from Wildflower is formulated to interact with and support the endocannabinoid system. At 1000mg per bottle each dropper contains 33 mg of full spectrum CBD. CBD from Wildflower is imported from Germany where it is extracted from naturally-grown hemp plants grown both pesticide & fertilizer-free. CBD+ Orange Mint oil is crafted with Mediterranean liver tonic herb milk thistle alongside the immune supporting cannabinoid. The active ingredient in milk thistle is Silymarin which is both an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Together the all natural ingredients can help us build immunity, relieve pain and reduce side-effects of other immune-based conditions. There are many uses for CBD and this product is a great option for someone who needs a higher dose.

The best way to take the Orange Mint Tincture is with a sublingual method. That means we just let the dropper-full sit right under the tongue and absorb into our system. But that isn’t the only way I’ve been utilizing this oil. When I’m especially anxious I’ll often make a cup of tea and is a great addition to a relaxing cup with skullcap, chamomile, and other herbs for anxiety. Before yoga class taking a few droppers has also been immense in quieting the chaos of the day and letting me focus on my hour-long practice.

There is a clarity to the effects of CBD that my mom describes as ‘waking up in the morning after camping on the lake’. Just as she described, there is a certain serenity that accompanies CBD for me. The last and more exciting way that I’ve been adding this flavored CBD tincture to my life is by adding droppers full to the olive or coconut oil I’m using in baked goods. That serenity described above is helpful when eating more sugar than usual. These are just the most recent ways I’ve been enjoying my CBD tincture, but the possibilities of how it can be used are definitely endless.

CBD+ Wellness tincture in Orange Mint flavor is the perfect high-dose product for someone hoping to use the product for the purposes of holistic healing. Before yoga, during anxiety-ridden days, or even just for fun alongside my favorite chocolate chip cookies; use the coconut oil-based tincture as you wish and enjoy the CBD magic.

Herb Spotlight: Calendula Flowers

Herb Spotlight

Calendula and marigold flowers are one in the same, but don’t confuse them with the ornamental marigolds found in gardens. Double check your herbs by the scientific name before making your healing products or other natural supplies with dried calendula flowers. I found out about this ingredient when I was dealing with bad acne because it helps heal inflamed skin. Now I’m working with it in beauty products mostly and also a massage oil for cowboyfriend’s aching hands. Also whenever I’m feeling like a graying version of myself, as if my inner light is dimming, I draw a bath with some Calendula flowers to charge up my auric field.

Breakdown of Calendula:

Scientific Name: Calendula officinalis [aka: marigold, summer’s bride]

Magickal Stats: Elementally Fire, Ruled by the Suncalendula-1405379

Aides in Relieving Symptoms of:

  • Cuts, Wounds, Burns and Ailments of the Skin
  • Inflammation; eyelid, rectum, varicose veins, nosebleeds & hemorrhoids
  • Menstrual Cramps

Assists Spiritually With:

  • Attract Success
  • Flourish in Optimism and Vitality
  • Protection; draw light and banish negativity

How Does It Work?

Calendula is mostly applied topically to work as an antibacterial and antiviral which is why it works great for supporting tissue growth and healing in cuts, burns, acne and other wounds. It also works as an anti-inflammatory to help with proctitis, conjunctivitis, herpes, insect stings and even black eyes.

What Do I Do With It?

A liquid extract of the dried flowers can be applied topically to the affected area to help with any inflamed or wounded skin. Also take drops of the liquid extract to induce menstruation and relieve menstrual cramps, promote skin healing and inflammation. Add to an incense to attract success specifically in legal matters. Sprinkle the dried flowers into a bath to draw health and vitality into the auric field.

What’s In My Cup? Golden Milk Tea

ayurveda, Recipes, What's In My Cup?

This is a good time of year to get into Golden Milk tea if you haven’t already. That’s because it improves your immune system, aside from this Winter friendly effect it has countless other amazing health benefits. I like to drink golden milk before bed because it helps me sleep. The first time that I tried it I was skeptical that it would help me sleep as I sat on my bed to enjoy my bright orange cup of warm milk. I woke up confused 2 hours later because all of the lights were still on.

This is legitimately my favorite pre-bedtime drink, it works for me every time. Because I have so much trouble relaxing I re-shaped this recipe from the usual golden milk tea. Usually this Ayurvedic beverage  is made with honey or maple syrup along with ginger and cinnamon. I take those ingredients out because I’m mainly using this to sleep and I have a lot of trouble with sleeping, but they have a lot of medicinal properties. I just add them to my hot lemon water in the morning to keep them in my daily routine. Turmeric has countless benefits among which are immune building, relief from the common cold, relaxation, anti-depressant and pain relief. There are more benefits I’m sure but I’ll save that for another post.

Ingredients:

1.5 cups of oat milk (use whatever milk you prefer to drink)

1 tsp ground turmeric

1 grind of black pepper

I like to heat up the milk and then add the turmeric and black pepper. Continue heating until the desired warmth is reached and remove from the heat. Whisk thoroughly to ensure all of the turmeric is mixed in. You can heat the mug filled with almond milk in the microwave or on the stove. If mixing on the stove keep the heat medium to low and whisk constantly to ensure it doesn’t burn. I like to snuggle up in bed with my warm golden milk and a good book without too much suspense or adventure in the plot. Drink the milk and just resonate with the one word mantra: Relax.
