Cannabis isn’t just for smoking medicinally and therapeutically. In fact, it offers your skin and hair a wide range of benefits from amino acids to vitamins and minerals. It aides in keeping your hair lustrous, shiny and silky smooth; And helps keep dry skin soft and touchable.
Living in the Las Vegas valley makes one no stranger to dry skin and split-ends, especially when it gets windy. That makes it even more of a benefit to use cannabis skin and haircare products. There are places around Las Vegas, mainly beauty supply shops, to obtain these products, but you could also make them at home with ease. Knowing how to make your own homemade cannabis body care to survive the Las Vegas elements isn’t a difficult endeavor. It also gives you the ability to support the cannabis revolution without being a medicinal or casual user of marijuana.
All Purpose Lotion
An all purpose cannabis lotion can be used on your skin to keep it moist, or it can be applied as a deep-conditioning hair cream. This all purpose cannabis lotion recipe requires botanical ingredients that can be obtained from an online wholesaler of soap making supplies; However, visiting a craft fair in the city can help you obtain some of the needed ingredients.
Things You Need
1 tbsp. hemp butter
1 tbsp. hemp carrier oil
1 tsp. silk peptide powder
1 cup distilled water
7 drops cannabis essential oil
1 tbsp. emulsifying wax beads
2 glass bowls
Add the hemp butter, hemp carrier oil, silk peptide powder and distilled water to one of the glass bowls. Add the emulsifying wax beads to the other glass bowl.
Microwave each bowl, separately, for up to four minutes each. This assures that the wax is melted and that the water and oil solution is hot enough to mix.
Beat the water and oil mixture on high as you slowly drizzle in the melted wax. Beat the solution for a continuous five minutes as it froths up into a runny and foamy lotion.
Add the essential oil and beat the mixture for an additional three minutes.
Pour the warm lotion into the container of your choice. Leave it uncovered until it cools to room temperature, which takes anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. The lotion can be used immediately on your hair or skin.
If you are using it in your hair, leave it on for 30 minutes as a hair mask and then wash out thoroughly. This should be done the day after a shampoo.
Roughing it in the Las Vegas heat during the summer season makes cannabis body care necessary for the nature-lover. The heavy oils of hemp create a protective barrier on your skin, which protects you from getting burned or chapped. It also seals moisture in to stop you from drying out.
