Natural PMS Relief
For many women, PMS signifies cramps, breakouts, mood swings and cravings. As Whoopie Goldberg points out, this is a health issue faced by half of our population. Severe pain, cramps, and the other symptoms associated with pre-menstrual syndrome and menstruation can be debilitating. Here’s How to Make a Natural Cannabis Topical to Help Relieve Cramps.
Cannabis can help if you struggle with a painful menstrual cycle. If you’re seeking natural relief, consider taking CBD orally and adding a cannabis topical to your self-care routine.
If you’re fortunate enough to live in California or Colorado, then you can pick up something from Whoopi&Maya’s incredible product line.
But if you don’t have access to Whoopi & Maya’s products–fear not! You can still make your own DIY cannabis topical especially potent for PMS relief at home.
Cannabinoids and essential oils can provide comfort as well as help regulate hormones leading to the reduction of menstrual-related symptoms. Here’s my recipe for a cannabis-infused topical, perfect for soothing menstrual cramps.
Feel free to experiment with adding willow bark and cramp bark essential oils. Whoopi & Maya do a great job incorporating both in their rub. These essential oils can be very beneficial to menstrual-related pain, their scents hower aren’t loved by all.
How I Use Cannabis for Pain Relief
Like Whoopi&Maya, I add essential oils to my homemade cannabis topicals to boost the therapeutic properties. Here’s the recipe for my DIY Cannabis Topical Essential Oil Blend.
RECIPE: Natural Cannabis Topical to Help Relieve Cramps
Cannabis-Infused Grapeseed Oil 4 oz (Try this small batch cannabis oil recipe if you only have a few grams of weed).
CBD Oil – 25 mgs (for me, this is one dropper of Elixinol or Bluebird Botanicals hemp oil)
Lavender Essential Oil – 4 drops
Chamomile Essential Oil – 6 drops
Geranium Essential Oil – 10 drops
Clary Sage Essential Oil – 10 drops
Combine all ingredients and apply topically as needed for pain relief. Adjust essential oils to your smell preference.
Why Cannabis Helps PMS
Why Essential Oils Help PMS
Aside from the remarkable benefits of cannabis, this combination of essential oils offers a variety of health benefits making them ideal for treating PMS.
Lavender Essential oil is an antispasmodic so it helps soothe and relieve cramps. It’s also an analgesic relieving pain. It can help calm, soothe and may reduce inflammation.
Chamomile essential oil is an analgesic, which means it reduces pain. It’s also an antispasmodic, relieving muscle spasms and cramps. It’s soothing, calming, and can act as an anti-depressant. It’s also an anti-inflammatory.
Geranium essential oil is historically known as the “women’s oil”. It balances hormones which can help reduce many of the symptoms of PMS such as acne/breakouts, cramps, bloating, mood swings.
Clary Sage is an anti-spasmodic, which helps relieve cramps. It’s also known as an anti-depressant. It can help enhance mood-boosting euphoria and may help balance hormone irregularities.
Use therapeutic grade essential oils. Do not apply to the skin undiluted. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. Only ingest oils under the careful guidance of a licensed health practitioner. Use caution when using essential oils on children. Immediately stop use and consult a health professional if skin sensitivity or allergy occurs.
