With so many purported benefits, it’s not surprising that CBD massage oil is fast becoming a popular item on many people’s shopping lists. Whether it’s for pain relief, a way to unwind and relax, or even as a sensual experience, CBD and massage go together like gin and tonic.
In this short guide, we’ll take a quick look at the benefits of CBD massage oils and how to use CBD massage oil.
Why use CBD for massage?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a naturally occurring and non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. In recent years it’s grown in popularity for its anti-inflammatory properties as well as its ability to treat a number of skin conditions.
The anti-inflammatory element is one of the most popular reasons to use CBD oil, as it can help to relieve pain in muscles and joints. If you need a relaxing massage as parts of sports rehabilitation, CBD could potentially help reduce swelling, pain and even speed up recovery.
CBD has also been linked with supporting your body’s endocannabinoid system, which is used to regulate many functions in the human body.
And, if that wasn’t enough, CBD also offers a pleasant tingle, or buzz, depending on how you use it. No, CBD doesn’t get you high like its sister compound THC. But it still helps you to relax, feel good and increase sensation.
This makes CBD massage oil perfect for use in sensual massage, or for foreplay.
What to expect from a CBD oil massage
When using a CBD based massage oil such as ShelleySupply intimacy oil, it will feel like a normal massage oil at first. Because it is made from plant based oils, including jojoba oil, hemp seed oil and grape seed oil, the actual application of the massage oil will feel like any other oil: smooth, non-sticky and pleasant to touch.
ShelleySupply CBD intimacy oil is also infused with natural organic essential oils. So you’ll also enjoy the soothing and sensual scent of Ylang Ylang, citrus oils and lavender.
Because the active compound, CBD, takes a few minutes to take effect, you may not notice the benefits of CBD massage at first. However, after around ten minutes, you should start to feel a soothing sensation, maybe even a slight tingle on your skin.
If there are aches and pains in your joints or muscles, you might also notice that the massage feels more effective than usual, especially afterwards. This is the active ingredient, CBD, taking effect.
Is CBD oil good for sensual massage?
CBD oil is the perfect accompaniment for sensual massage! While CBD helps to soothe the body and mind, the scent of the essential oils helps to enhance the sensual experience. But better than that, there are also many benefits of using CBD for sex.
ShelleySupply intimacy oil is actually designed as an intimate lube for women and men who want to enhance their sexual experience.
Some of the benefits of using CBD lube include:
- Reduced pain from penetrative sex
- A natural lubricant
- Enhanced sensitivity for both men and women
- Potential as a treatment for erectile dysfunction
So while you can use CBD massage oil to get in the mood, it’s also perfect for when you want to get closer.
How to use CBD massage oil
Like any massage oil, CBD massage oil is best applied at body temperature. We recommend placing the desired amount in your cupped hand and allowing it to warm up for a few seconds before applying to the skin in a smooth motion.
Start with a small amount and rub the CBD massage oil into the desired area, and then add more if necessary.
You’ll find that ShelleySupply CBD intimacy oil goes a long way, so you might not need as much as you think.
When it comes to using our intimacy oil for personal lubrication, again, we recommend applying to the hand first and then massaging into the genitals, nipples, buttocks or any other sensitive areas where you want to feel the tingle.
A couple of things to remember though…
Don’t use oil based products with latex condoms or sex toys as it will degrade the material.
It’s also a good idea to spot test a small amount of any CBD oil based products on your body before using them properly. In the case of ShelleySupply CBD intimacy oil, dab a bit on your arm or leg at least an hour before using properly, just to make sure you have any adverse reactions.
While CBD allergies are very rare, they can happen, so stay safe!
And, remember that CBD takes anything from ten to 20 minutes to take effect. So if you want to experience the sexy buzz from your CBD intimacy oil, take time to let it warm up on yours and your partner’s bodies.
Which is the best CBD massage oil?
While there are many options for CBD massage oils on the market, especially here in the UK. The best thing is to try one out and see what works for you.
ShelleySupply CBD intimacy oil is one of the best options because it’s UK manufactured, contains 100% natural and plant based ingredients (yes, it’s vegan friendly), and it has a high CBD content.
And because of our easy to use pump dispenser, you can be assured that you’ll be getting the same dose of CBD every time.
