Why You Should Be Using CBD For Emotional Support

In the U.S. alone, mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression affect over 40 million adults annually. Even people who don’t suffer from long-term emotional issues may experience occasional symptoms. And with a slew of risks associated with many prescription drugs, many people are looking for alternative ways to alleviate feelings of anxiousness and depression. If you’re thinking of adding  (CBD) oil to your daily routine, read on to learn some of the current scientific research about CBD and emotions.


Most people believe that depression and other emotional issues result from a serotonin deficiency in the brain. The hippocampus is the area of the brain that is responsible for memory, learning, and emotions. 

Serotonin plays a role within the hippocampus as a vital neuromodulator. Its primary function might be to maintain homeostasis in the brain. A deficiency of serotonin can contribute to mental illness, but it is not often the root cause.(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4825106/)

The good news is that this area of the brain is capable of regeneration, or hippocampal neurogenesis. It is possible for new nerve connections to form and the brain to be restored to its normal, non-depressive state. 

Although numerous studies about CBD’s effects on the brain exist, ongoing studies are happening now to evaluate the long-term effects of its use. However, the potential of CBD to help with emotions is quite promising.

 When evaluating the brain-healing potential of CBD oil, the studies refer to CBD’s ability to protect living neurons (neuroprotection), to help form new connections (neuroplasticity), and to trigger the formation of new neurons (neurogenesis). Most of the findings indicate that CBD is key for neuroplasticity in that it directly affects neurotransmitters.

It is exciting to know that there are so many natural alternatives to use to support our emotions without turning to methods that can have harmful side effects as well as being habit-forming.

Ditch the Sugar Habit With  a Little Help From Essential Oils
"We now eat in two weeks the amount of sugar our ancestors of 200 years ago ate in a whole year."

Happy New Year, friend!

A new year, and a new decade, is upon us! I hope your holidays were merry and filled with happy memories, and that you're ready to jump into a new decade with anticipation for what's to come!

While we generally promote a healthy lifestyle, including nutrition, all bets are off when it comes to holiday eating! Cookies for breakfast? Candy for a snack? Sweets and treats galore? That just about sums up the holidays for many of us!
The good news is that essential oils can really be your best friend when you're ready to get rid of your sugar cravings once and for all! This month we'll be learning a little bit about how you can use essential oils and NingXia Red to kick your sugar habit.

KICK THE SUGAR WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: GRAPEFRUIT
Grapefruit is basically the all-in-one sugar kicker! It reduces feelings of hunger, wards off carb and sugar cravings (praise hands!), it may help balance blood sugar, and induces feelings of positivity (which can help combat emotional eating).

Often the afternoons bring both a slump in energy and those lovely cravings for something sweet. That's a great time to grab Grapefruit Vitality and add a drop or two to sparkling water for a refreshing drink. Or use the Sugar Snap (Out of It) roller to help curb your craving.

Fun fact: Grapefruit essential oil has properties that may prevent weight gain (here’s the science).
