Suffering From Eczema?
by: deliciously Dee

Canna infused topicals are gaining more and more eyes as the legalization arises.  People everywhere, myself included, are using topical medical marijuana therapies to aid painful disorders of the skin, joints, and nervous system including arthritis, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, eczema, psoriasis, and more. 

Lotions, salves or oils applied directly to the skin, topicals, allow cannabinoids like THC and CBD to be absorbed into the muscles and work their healing abilities directly on the affected area. 
A cannabis extract is mixed with other natural pain-relieving ingredients such as menthol, arnica, aloe vera, and shea butter to maximize the soothing effect.  How it works is your skin contains both CB1 and CB2 receptors, which pick up cannabinoids and use them to send signals to the rest of the nervous system, dulling pain, reducing inflam-mation, and even regulating the hair follicles and various glands of the skin.

A topical formulated with an THC or high-CBD strain is likely to have stronger pain-relieving effects and suited for calming a sunburn or eczema outbreak. 
Compared to traditional treatments (Icy Hot, Bengay, etc.), the effectiveness of medical marijuana topicals has many users saying it is the only treatment that has ever worked for their particular condition, or will ever in the future. There is a wide and diverse range of consumers in the market for topicals. Individuals without pain or skin disorders can also benefit from the healthy omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids contained in hemp oil, a natural moisturizer and skin protectant that has been used in beauty products for years.
Whichever forms they take, topical treatments will be the major bridge from the “outside world” into the medical cannabis community. People who have never tried marijuana before will love the fact that it is a healthier alternative to smoking to experience a pain-free way of life. Between topicals, edibles, concentrates, flower...hemp and cannabis could make many modern chemicals obsolete.


If you are looking for a deliciously Dee - "DIY" at home, this recipe is incredibly simple to make and gives you a super easy natural alternative to the cancer-in-a-bottle store bought lotion that may be in your wash area now. 
You can customize your lotion to your skin type and desired scent.

There are endless variations, but some of my favorites are:
- Lavender and Gardenia ;-)
- Coconut and Baking Soda for face
- Rosewater and Almond Oil
- Mint and Green Tea
I’ve included my basic recipe below. You can customize by adding different essential oils, infusing your oils with herbs first using shea or cocoa butter in place of the coconut oil for more of a body-butter consistency.
Ingredients:


1/2 cup almond or olive oil

1/4 cup CANNA INFUSED coconut oil
1/4 cup beeswax
2 tablespoon shea butter or cocoa butter
Essential Oils (my favorites are gardenia, lavender, & citrus)
1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil

Directions:

Combine ingredients in a pint sized or larger glass jar, mason jars are perfect!

Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and place over medium heat.

Put a lid on the jar loosely and place in the pan with the water.

As the water heats, the ingredients in the jar will start to melt. Shake or stir occasionally to incorporate. When all ingredients are completely melted, pour into whatever jar or tin you will use for storage. Small mason jars (8 ounce) are great for this. (It will not pump well in a lotion pump!)

Use as you would regular lotion. This has a longer shelf life than some homemade lotion recipes since all ingredients are already shelf stable and no water is added. Use within 6 months for best moisturizing benefits.  Happy Healing!

Happy Note: A little goes a long way! This lotion is incredibly nourishing and is also great for eczema and for preventing stretch marks!
