CBD is continuing to make waves in the wellness conversation. With potential benefits ranging from pain relief to better sleep to peacefulness and calm, CBD is a powerful plant—but does it have a place on your yoga mat?
“At Jasper Organics, we view CBD not just as a product, but as a catalyst that can be used to transform different areas of one’s life, from physical ailments to mental clarity. And because of the unique way it brings balance to the body, CBD provides the perfect inner environment for outward change.”
So, what would be the perfect lifestyle practice to complement the benefits of CBD? Yoga.
Whatever your level or wherever you find your flow, the connection between CBD and yoga—and what happens when you add it to your wellness routine—might surprise you.
It’s an ancient pairing.
Did you know that the same ancient holy books and Vedas that first mention yoga are also the first to mention hemp? Our “universal regulator,” the endocannabinoid system, has a crucial component called anandamide—the “bliss molecule”—which is named after the Sanskrit word ananda, or bliss. Sanskrit is the language of yoga. Āsana, hatha, and prāna probably sound familiar, whether you practice regularly or you're a yoga newbie. CBD and yoga have a shared origin... interesting, right?
Adding it to your yoga flow.
If you’re ready to amplify your yoga practice naturally, here are a few products you can try the next time you step onto your mat and into your zen zone. You can expect pain relief, energy, and an overall calming sense of self.
Daybreak Roll On
This CBD product fits right in your pocket. Containing hundreds of unique plant compounds called terpenes (think instant aromatherapy), the Daybreak Roll On delivers a soothing scent with vitalizing effects that are best suited for use before your yoga practice.
Use: Gently roll the glass roller along your temples, neck, jaw and/or any sore spots on your body. This topical CBD product is extremely stimulating once it kicks in (about 30 minutes), immediately relieving pain, tension, and stress.
Active Ingredients: CBD, Jojoba Oil, Vetiver, Lavender, Frankincense, White Fir.
CBD Body Lotion
Luxury meets relaxation on the molecular level with this high-quality (and naturally fragrant) body lotion. Infused with 250 milligrams of active CBD, this product is designed to soothe and relieve soreness + stiffness in your muscles & joints while leaving your skin smooth. The lotion can be applied immediately before and after your yoga flow.
Use: Apply generously to the areas that cause you pain or those that are ‘tested’ most by your yoga practice—knees, low back, etc. Massage thoroughly into skin and prepare to feel seriously supple and relaxed.
Active Ingredients: Full Spectrum Hemp Distillate, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax.
Full Spectrum CBD Oil (Relax)
CBD is powerful, especially when it comes to promoting mental and emotional wellbeing. Our 500mg CBD oil is likely strong enough to provide all the upliftment needed when ingested prior to your practice, helping to make a difference with your yoga flow by encouraging equilibrium. And just like with yoga, CBD’s benefits tend to emerge slowly but strongly over time.
Use: Under your tongue, take roughly half a dropper (~8 milligrams) of our oil half an hour before your next yoga session begins. You’ll likely feel calmer and more at home in your body. Namaste!
Active ingredients: Full Spectrum, Full Active Hemp-Derived CBD.
If you’re ready to raise your baseline, adding CBD to your yoga and wellness routine might be your next move. Want to get started? Use code MINDBODY for 20% off all Jasper products!
Things are weird. Times are changing. It seems like just when we’re starting to get a grip, there’s another surprise. When it comes to beauty, we've had to adapt on our own due to salon closures, keep an eye on preparations and protocol changes during those closures, try to know what we’re doing before booking an appointment once they reopened, and maybe even brave the journey back to the salon. Whether you live in a place where salons are open, you’ve experienced a second shutdown, or you straight up haven’t had a haircut since March, we can all probably agree that we’re expecting some differences in the salon and spa world thanks to COVID.
We wanted to gauge how everyone is thinking and feeling about all this, so we put out a poll on our Instagram, asking you all what you expect from beauty salons right now.
Here’s what you had to say...
53% of you have returned to the hair salon by now, while 47% of you have not. This makes sense, because every area of the country is different when it comes to cases, closures, and mandates, and every person is different when it comes to risk and safety.
While many hair salons have begun operating outdoors due to government regulations, 58% of you said you’re fine with getting your haircut indoors, while the other 42% are more comfortable keeping it outside.
58% of you said you’d rather go to your hair salon than have your stylist come to you. I get it, home is a safe space, probably shouldn’t let any outsiders in.
69% of you said you’re “totally!” going to tip more for services once you start receiving them again. During this time without our stylists and aestheticians, I think we all realized how much we need them and appreciate them, and many of us are willing to show them a little extra gratitude to make up for the time we spent apart.
But, most of you aren’t. 56% of you said you have not cut or colored your own or a friend’s hair, because it was too risky, while the other 44% just “had to!”
Only 29% of you have returned to nail salons, while the rest are sticking to at-home manicures. Maybe we’re all just getting really good at it? But probably, it’s because a lot of them are still closed down, or because it’s a little more difficult to get a pedicure outdoors (we need our massage chairs!).
Our last poll question asked about what differences you’ve all noticed when heading back to the salon, and you all had a lot to say...
It’s a beautiful thing to see how the salon and spa community has come together, taken precautions, and adjustments, all so they can continue to help us look and feel our best. If you haven’t spoken to your stylist lately (or even if you have), don’t forget to shoot them a thank you and let them know you appreciate them.
