Protoje × Wiz Khalifa

Today, two heavy hitters in their respective fields- Protoje and Wiz Khalifa- join forces on “A Vibe” to profess their love for cannabis. Listen here.

The single will be available on Jamaican artist Protoje’s fifth studio album In Search of Lost Time available worldwide on August 28th. “A Vibe,” produced by Supa Dups & Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor,  follows his album cuts “Like Royalty” feat. Popcaan and “Same So,” which have been revealed over the last month.

“When I first did this song, I honestly knew that I would not have put it out without Wiz being on it. I was a super fan of his Kush & Orange Juice mixtape. From then, I always wanted to sing a song about Marijuana and how it helps maintain my mood at times,” Protoje said on the track.

In Search Of Lost Time will be Protoje’s first album release with RCA Records and follows his fourth studio album A Matter of Time, which resulted in Protoje’s first Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Reggae Album chart. In Search Of Lost Time is a pivotal moment of reflection for Protoje. While he has enjoyed independent success that yielded international fanfare for over a decade, Protoje’s latest studio effort takes a deep look at his personal and professional evolution as a man, a father, and an artist as the world stands still. The forthcoming album is a marked departure from his previous releases and showcases a wider range of collaborations with balanced display of musicianship. The “reggae revival” contemporary colors outside the lines for a cinematic, multi-genre, stadium level LP. Hip hop and reggae has always heavily influenced his sound, but he raises the bar by merging these two worlds with a variety of key players on both sides. Vocalists from Wiz Khalifa, Koffee, Popcaan and Lila Iké also join in on this razor-sharp diverse 10-track release. Protoje co-produces many of the tracks, and he also taps Supa Dups (the multi-platinum producer behind timeless songs for Drake, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj and John Legend), his resident beatsmith Winta James, Jamaica’s go-to hit-maker Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor and more.

Cannabis and Quality of Life

Improving Life Quality with CBD

There are many different things that contribute to our quality of life, and sometimes you may find that your life quality starts to wane as a result of these things. For instance, things such as not getting enough sleep, being in pain, or always feeling low can all have a negative impact on your quality of life. They can also affect key aspects of your life such as your focus, your work, relationships, and health among other things.

The good news is that there are solutions that can help with these problems, and this includes the use of CBD products. CBD has gained a lot of positive press and popularity over recent years, and changes in legislation have made these products even more accessible. You can also choose from many different products to suit your needs such as CBD oil or CBD edibles. Many people take CBD because it makes a stark difference to their life quality, and in this article, we will look at how CBD does this.

Improvements You Can Look Forward To

One of the reasons CBD has become so popular is because it can improve your quality of life in so many ways. Some of the ways in which it can help to achieve better life quality are:

Improving Your Sleep

One of the things that CBD can help with is improving your sleep, and this in turn can then improve your health and quality of life. Lack of sleep can have a huge negative impact on your life, so you need to get the right amount of sleep on a regular basis. By increasing serotonin levels, CBD can help to regular your sleep patterns, which means you can look forward to plenty of rest to recharge your body and mind.

Dealing with Pain and Inflammation

Many people take CBD oil for pain, as it has been proven to be an excellent painkiller as well as a very effective anti-inflammatory. Many believe that it could become a big player in the future of painkillers, and many have found it to be hugely effective. So, if you have problems with pain and inflammation due to injuries or health conditions, this could prove highly beneficial. Reducing pain and inflammation will help to boost your quality of life considerably.

Helping You to Relax

When you find it hard to switch off and relax, it can leave you feeling really stressed and uptight. This can then impact your general health and your mental wellbeing. CBD is a great way to help you to unwind and relax, which can then benefit your overall wellbeing and improve your quality of life as a result.

Boosting Your Mood

We all feel low from time to time, but some more often than others. If you fall into the latter group, it can really affect your life. However, CBD can boost serotonin levels, which can then boost your mood. This then has a positive impact on your life quality.

These are some of the ways in which CBD can help to improve your quality of life.

Sunnyside × Illinois Cannabis Union

Today, workers at the Sunnyside dispensary in Chicago won their election, by an overwhelming majority, and will join Illinois’s Cannabis Union, Local 881 UFCW. The dispensary, owned by Cresco Labs, employs 40 people and is located in the Lakeview neighborhood.

The workers faced an unusually long wait to receive the results of their election, originally petitioned for on April 3, 2020. The National Labor Relations Boards originally ordered that the election would be held by mail-in ballot instead of in-person voting. However, the pandemic caused the vote count to be postponed multiple times.

“The entire process has tested everyone’s resolve, but we came through in the end,” said Nicholas Stankus, a Sunnyside employee. “This group is proud to be the first cannabis dispensary workers to unionize with Local 881 UFCW and participate in the growth of Illinois’s cannabis industry.”

The workers at Sunnyside are the first dispensary workers in Illinois to win a Union election. They were motivated to Unionize in order to improve their working conditions. Workers cited issues such as a lack of professionalism from management, unclear workplace policies and procedures, a slow and inadequate response to the challenges of the coronavirus, and a growing culture of disrespect for workers.

“The workers at Sunnyside are a great example of what happens when workers stand together and fight for what they want,” said Local 881 UFCW President Steve Powell, “This was a long wait, but better careers are worth fighting for. Our Union is proud of these workers and looks forward to negotiating a contract that will be worth the wait!”

Local 881 is among the largest affiliates of the UFCW, which is proud to represent tens of thousands of cannabis workers across multiple states. UFCW members in the legal cannabis industry work in growing and cultivating facilities, manufacturing and processing facilities, and also in laboratories and dispensaries. Local 881 made history in January 2020, when over 100 workers at the Cresco Labs grow facility in Joliet, IL voted to join Local 881. Sunnyside is the national retail brand of Cresco Labs. Cresco operates seven Sunnyside locations throughout Illinois.

Local 881 UFCW represents 34,000 members employed in retail food and drug stores throughout Illinois and Northwest Indiana, cannabis workers in Illinois, as well as a professional division comprised of health and nursing home workers, barbers and cosmetologists, and workers in other retail and service industries. Among the companies under contract with Local 881 are Jewel Food Stores, Osco Drug, Mariano’s, CVS Pharmacy, Kroger, Schnucks, Conagra Brands, and many smaller chains and independent stores, as well as nursing homes and other business establishments. Local 881 is among the largest affiliates of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, which represents 1.3 million members in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

Ways to Boost your Online Shopping Experience

There’s no doubt about it – times are weird but shopping still needs to get done. Post-quarantine outfits, re-stocking products and snuggly dog sweaters so you both can be cozy watching movies together. As the days of waiters and shopping malls seem like a distant memory, buying clothes online can be a wonderful approach in response to the loss of crowded malls bustling with people. 

If you are new to this shopping method, there are a few tips that are about to transform your experience. Before you begin shopping, make a list of everything you need (as to not get too distracted) as well as a list of shopping websites you want to go on. This will make it easy and be extremely helpful in saving some time!

It may be hard to leave the shopping malls behind and go online if you aren’t used to it – but there are actually many upsides to shopping online. Online means more stock, so your size is more likely to be in stock than if you are in-person. There will also be many more options online because it isn’t tailored only to your typical store’s location and aggregated buyer data. This can mean stepping a little out of your comfort zone or finding the perfect article of clothing you were looking for!

As you’re scrolling through pages of clothing, always remember to utilize the filter options above. This will eliminate many options that simply wouldn’t have worked for you anyway! Though seeing the high number of search results means lots of variety and options – this may be a source of anxiety. This is where the boost comes in handy. 

CBD has many great benefits that are great when it comes to online shopping. The healing properties help eliminate anxiety and create focus as you shop. While you are looking through pages and sites, you’ll need something effective and quick – that’s why we recommend CBDfx premium vape pens. The high quality creates a wonderful flavor with consistent hits. Puffing on it as you find your perfect outfits will make the entire process so much more enjoyable – like a treat as you treat yourself. Now I can’t think of anything better than that! Meanwhile, any negative emotions or anxieties will be slipping away due to the powers CBD possesses. 

Another great thing about the pens are the amazing flavor options! The variety of flavors and colors are easy to fit to your personality. Not to mention, the pens are sleek and compact – allowing you to keep the pen anywhere you please for easy access! 

Picking options while scrolling through pages clothing, this process can be made a little easier. 

As quarantine slowly begins lifting, you may find yourself wanting to stick with online shopping. The ease, convenience and boost from your CBDfx vape pen may be your new preferred method. Along with the fact that you can’t treat yourself to enjoyable puffs as you walk the mall floors.

High Times x RWB

High Times partners with Red, White & Bloom to rebrand and develop dispensaries in Michigan, Illinois, and Florida

Hightimes Holding Corp., the owner of High Times®, the most well-known brand in cannabis, today announces that it has entered into a series of agreements with Red, White & Bloom, Inc., also known as RWB, with the goal of the branding of High Times dispensaries and development of cannabis based CBD and THC products in the States of Michigan, Illinois and Florida.

RWB and its investee will use the Hightimes™ trademark, logo and brand to rebrand its 18 planned and operational dispensaries as High Times stores. Together, such stores represent more than 20% of the cannabis market share across the state. RWB’S Investee is the leading cannabis company in Michigan, with dispensaries, indoor/outdoor cultivation and product manufacturing established over the last two years. In addition, as a result of the acquisition of Newco, RWB will also acquire the rights to brand retail and medical dispensaries and products in the states of Illinois and Florida, and may utilize RWB’s 3.6 million square foot facility in Illinois for the production of CBD products and whole hemp flower strains for distribution nationally.

In addition to transforming the dispensaries to become High Times branded destinations and launching delivery capabilities in select locations, High Times branded vapes, tinctures, topicals, and edibles will be available within both owned dispensaries and other third party outlets. The company has aggressive growth plans and is entering the market at a time when the retail landscape has been significantly changed.

“High Times is a 46-year-old brand with an immense amount of recognition and credibility across the world,” said Peter Horvath, Chief Executive Officer of Hightimes Holding Corp. “Licensing the High Times name, advising on dispensary operations, and providing input on product development allows the company to drive significant revenue from licensing fees without assuming the complexity associated with owning and operating dispensaries and scaled cultivation and manufacturing facilities nationwide. RWB has built an incredible and expansive retail footprint in a quick time frame that we can strengthen through applying the High Times Brand.”

The Hightimes subsidiary holding the Hightimes™ trademark, logo and brand worldwide sublicensed such intellectual property to a new subsidiary, Newco, for the purpose of using and branding retail and medical dispensaries and products in Michigan, Illinois, and Florida. Under the terms of the agreement, the Hightimes Licensing Company sold RWB 100% of the equity of Newco. In return, the Hightimes Licensing Company will receive $15 million of RWB common shares which are expected to trade on the Canadian Securities Exchange and may receive an additional $5 million of RWB common shares in the future. In addition, the Hightimes Licensing Company expects certain Minimum Guarantee payments during the term of the agreement and any renewal period.

Hightimes Holding Corp. has also recently announced the appointment of CEO Peter Horvath and its planned acquisition of 13 California dispensaries from Harvest Health & Recreation, one of the largest multi-state operators in cannabis. Through these initiatives, High Times intends to become one of the largest cannabis companies in California, and is working quickly to do the same in Michigan, Illinois and Florida.

Cannabis Trends During COVID-19

As people deal with COVID-19, how is cannabis use changing?

SōRSE Technology, a food science emulsification company pivotal to the cannabis and CBD edible supply chain, was created by a team of mindful, physically active people. They have rowers, skiers, cyclists, yoga enthusiasts and runners, all of whom are passionate about CBD and THC. The company understands these sports are easier to do when you are healthy, and being healthy means making wise choices about what you do to your body. They developed their emulsion to allow people to get CBD or THC into their system without inhaling, which is important for athletes, but also important when it comes to protecting your lungs- even more important now as we deal with COVID-19. 

At SōRSE Technology, innovation means creating new platforms and new ways to incorporate products into beverages, food, or topicals. The company wants consumers to be aware of these platforms so that they know they have options when it comes to using cannabis. In terms of R&D, they are spending a lot of time researching trends and how consumers think about wellness. With this, they are also seeing a need to for an all-natural CBD emulsion which will be available very soon. Consumers are concerned about their health and immune systems and are looking at ingredients that can support a healthier lifestyle. SōRSE Technology wants customers to have a natural option if that is what they want for their food or beverage.

2020 started with new and exciting flavors; “exotic and accessible” was a trend in January and February. Yet when people feel uncomfortable or uncertain about the future, they have a tendency to circle back to the past and their positive memories, which makes them feel nostalgic. This will be reflected in consumers trying to recreate experiences from recent fond memories, from a wonderful vacation they took or a cocktail from their favorite restaurant – something that reminds them of a happy time when they were together with family or friends.

Because of COVID-19, almost everyone is going through a difficult time right now. We have higher stress levels, and we worry for our families, unemployment and the uncertainty of the future. SōRSE Technology knows that health, and specifically, respiratory health is very much on customers’ minds.

People were already looking for new ways to consume their cannabis that didn’t involve inhaling it. Consumers were also trending towards functional health beverages that placed emphasis on boosting the immune system, improving sleep, or reducing stress. COVID-19 has accelerated that trend and made people even more concerned about their health and well-being. This could explain why CBD sales have been strong the past two months. In states where it is medicinally and/or recreationally legal, THC sales are up as well, which could indicate that people are using it as a way to escape from the stress and anxiety the COVID is causing and bring themselves back to a more relaxed space.

In terms of working with partners and customers, SōRSE Technology sees that people are spending time at home innovating on new ideas. They have budding entrepreneurs reaching out who are interested in starting their own businesses, especially in the realm of e-commerce, and are using this time to reset their lives and reflect on what matters to them. The company’s job is to help customers go in the right direction, knowing that there are a lot of changes happening with the consumer mindset and consumer expectation. They are trying to stay on top of the changing trends so that they can help customers make the right decisions.

How To Treat Dog Chemotherapy Side Effects   

Dogs are often called man’s best friend and we can’t ignore the fact that it’s true. Dogs are one of the most popular pets there is and for good reason: They are adorable. Having dogs is like caring for your kids. You want them to be safe and healthy as possible. Keeping them that way is not always a challenge. 

Some of us find it quite easy. You just feed them, give them a bath, put a roof over their heads, and give them love and care. But sometimes, we don’t always know what’s going on with them, right? You don’t know where they’ve been all day. 

It’s also hard to tell if their sick or not, but you’ll notice how they’re energy decreases. Let’s talk about one of the familiar illnesses a dog might face. And the most common is cancer. 

Cancer is a disease known to all of us and it doesn’t only affect us, humans. It also affects our pets. One of the most common cancers in dogs is lymphoma. This happens when lymphocytes (also known as the white blood cells that fight infection)grow out of control. 

Another cause of cancer is usually long exposure in the sun, second-hand smoke, and even chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides. But I didn’t say it’s not treatable. Your furry friend could continue to live a healthy life if you can treat him/her as early as possible. The most familiar treatment is chemotherapy. 

What Is Chemotherapy?

This is usually given to those with cancer, both humans and pets (such as dogs). They are given drug treatments to help them with their illness. I can’t say that it will cure it entirely, but it does help with slowing down cancer (read more).

Chemotherapy is usually prescribed by a doctor or veterinarian. It is proven to be effective and it will make your dog live longer. Turns out, dogs can withstand this treatment better than humans. If your dog has cancer, the most time he/she has is two months, more or less. But if your pet got diagnosed with cancer a little bit earlier, you can save his life. 

Unlike dogs who had aged, it will more likely lead to death, sad but true. The average time a dog has when it undergoes chemotherapy is 10-12 months or maybe more. There are a lot of bright sides to this but your furry friend will have to face a little pain. You just have to be there for them and care for them properly. 

Even though the doses given to a dog that is on chemotherapy is much lower than what is given to humans, they will still experience the side effects. The side effects will often occur 3-5 days after they are given the therapy, but this will pass. Let me provide you some info about the side effects and these are the following:

  • Vomiting
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Diarrhea
  • Allergic Reaction
  • Urine Color (this shouldn’t make you worry, it is normal.)

Those were just a few types of side effects and all of it will just pass. If you think your pet needs medication to lessen the side effects, first consult a doctor or veterinarian. But you could lessen your pet’s suffering by giving them CBD or Cannabidiol

What Is Cannabidiol?

This is very popular for it gives benefits to those who require its natural remedy. It comes from one of the many chemical substances known as cannabinoids that are from the marijuana plant (Cannabis Sativa).

CBD is known for the benefits it provides for your body and this helps with your pets too! People suggest that using CBD can be very helpful during the treatment of cancer. It’s not proven to be effective in treating cancer but it helps manage the side effects that we talked about earlier. 

The treatment often causes inflammations and that causes pain to your dog. But, with CBD you can help your pet with its suffering. According to this website, https://www.holistapet.com/testimonials-item/using-it-for-chemotherapy-side-effects/, it helps with the loss of appetite, it provides pain relief and may reduce nausea (but this comes from a different compound other than CBD). To make sure, you should ask if it’s advisable but to lessen your doubts, it is legal. 

They use CBD to treat the side effects of our precious fur babies. They can help you in treating your pet and making them feel better! There will always come a challenging phase in their lives and we can’t always protect them from illnesses. 

Just like cancer, it brings them suffering and you must do what you can to make them feel better and relieve them from the pain they are feeling. CBD is recommended. So, if it works for others it might work for you too! Don’t wait for your pet’s last moments, instead, make the moments last longer! 

Grab the opportunity to make them feel better and I hope I’ve provided you with the information you were looking for on how to treat your dog’s chemotherapy side effects!

High Times® Announces New CEO

The owner of High Times®, the most well-known brand in cannabis, announces today the appointment of Peter Horvath, former Chief Commercialization Officer of American Eagle Outfitters and former Chief Operating Officer at Victoria’s Secret, as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer and Board Member.

“We are pleased to welcome Peter to the High Times family, and to be able to tap into his wealth of experience capitalizing on major consumer brands. There are few executives with his retail experience in the mainstream world and, up to this point, none in the cannabis world with such an accomplished background,” Hightimes Holding Corp. Executive Chairman Adam Levin said. “The team and I would like to thank Stormy for all of her hard work in getting us through this transition period, and we are excited to have her continue working with us on this mission to grow High Times into all the business areas it helped create.”

Before joining High Times, Horvath previously held leadership roles for large scale global holding companies such as L Brands (Victoria’s Secret, Bath & Body Works, etc. ), American Eagle Outfitters (American Eagle & Aerie), and DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse). Horvath took DSW public on the NYSE in 2005. In 2012 Horvath became CEO of MEP, a government contractor serving the US intelligence and security community in Afghanistan (ISAF), Africa, and Europe. Horvath formed Green Growth Brands and took it public on the CSE in November 2018. GGB operates the highly successful The Source dispensaries in Nevada, and during 2019 his GGB team introduced the Camp, Green Lilly, and Seventh Sense CBD and Cannabis brands to over 400,000 consumers in over 200 locations across the country.

Horvath joins High Times during its ongoing Regulation A+ campaign, which will culminate with the company’s trading on the public markets. Having recently entered into an agreement to acquire 13 dispensaries from Harvest Health & Recreation, High Times is quickly on track to become one of the largest cannabis retailers in California. Following closing on the acquisition, High Times intends to rebrand the stores in its likeness. Consummation of the transitions contemplated with Harvest Health remain subject to certain closing conditions, including the receipt of certain regulatory and third-party consents. The parties are aiming to close the acquisitions no later than June 30, 2020, subject to the parties’ mutual agreement to extend the closing date.

“High Times is a unique brand with an important and rich heritage that deserves amplification and a broader reach, “ stated incoming Chief Executive Officer Peter Horvath. “I think of brands like Glossier, who first earned high-affinity followers through compelling and relevant content, and then demonstrated that you can also serve their followers through commerce. So, it’s been done before, I wouldn’t suggest that it will be easy, but we have all the resources to succeed. I look forward to joining Adam’s accomplished team at High Times, and I am intent on understanding, protecting, and building on the High Times legacy.“

Stormy Simon will step down as Chief Executive Officer.

The Benefits of Vaping CBD Cartridges

There are lots of different ways to use CBD, but vape cartridges might be the easiest and most convenient options on the market. With most CBD carts, all it takes to experience the non-intoxicating power of this cannabinoid is inhaling from a tiny, battery-powered stick you keep in your pocket. Even with this level of convenience, CBD cartridges still pack the most effectiveness and power of any CBD product category. Learn more in this guide.

Vaping vs. smoking

Vaping is definitely safer than smoking. While smoke of any kind contains incinerated plant matter, vapor only contains water and vaporized oils. This lack of particulates makes it easy for your lungs to absorb vapor, and there’s less chance of oxidative stress causing smoke-related conditions like cancer.

Vapor also tastes better than smoke, and it may be more effective. While holding the smoke in your lungs will only hurt you without offering increased effects, the mildness of vapor makes it okay to keep CBD in your lungs for longer. Since your lungs absorb vapor better than smoke, CBD vape cartridges may even have more bioavailability, which is the measurement of how much of a substance your body can use.

Unique benefits of CBD cartridges

CBD vape cartridges take all the benefits of dabbing and put them in your pocket. Whenever you want to enjoy a concentrated dose of CBD that goes right to your central nervous system (CNS), dabbing is the way to go, and CBD vape cartridges that contain nothing beyond pure CBD-rich hemp flower extract offer the exact same benefits as a dab rig without all the mess.

All it takes to enjoy CBD on the go is a little puff from the vape pen you keep in your pocket. While the effects of pulmonary ingestion (inhaling) don’t last as long as oral ingestion (swallowing), they’re much quicker and more intense, making CBD carts a fast fix for problems that only non-intoxicating cannabidiol can solve.

How to choose the best CBD cartridges

It’s natural to be a little bit skeptical of vape cartridges after the recent scare over vitamin E acetate, but it’s easy to protect yourself from bad products. Start by taking a careful look at the company that makes the cartridge—is it a big company, and do they have lots of reviews? If so, you’ve probably found a winner, but it’s also important to examine the ingredients.

Good CBD cartridges contain CBD extract only. There is no reason to add extra ingredients to CBD cartridges. CBD oil does not require thinners, bases, or other ingredients to vaporize properly, and on the contrary, adding other substances to your hemp carts could be dangerous.

Live resin is the highest-quality type of CBD extract ever devised, and here are two of the top live resin cartridges on the market:

1. Raw Nectar Live Resin CBD Cartridge

This Raw Nectar vape cartridge from Secret Nature contains nothing more or less than CO2-extracted live resin hemp flower extract. With no flavors or artificial ingredients, this Raw Nectar cartridge is natural cannabis oil at its best.

Secret Nature carts don’t even contain any added terpenes because they don’t need to—live resin extraction captures the terpene profile of cannabis flower at the moment it’s cut from the stalk, offering a richer and more potent experience. This hybrid strain is named for its honey-like flavor overtones that blend into a deep earthy texture as you inhale.

2. Lemon Diesel Live Resin CBD Cartridge

Lemon Diesel has a decidedly sativa terpene profile, which will help you get up and go whenever it’s time to focus. Like all Secret Nature cartridges, this CBD vape cart is offered in both 700mg and 1200mg size options, and this brand is very conscientious about providing batch-specific, third-party lab reports with each product batch.

All it takes to get started with your new vape cartridge is a fully-charged battery and a single inhalation. You’ll notice the difference between live resin and other extract types from the first puff, and once you get used to the convenience and potency of CBD vape cartridges, you’ll never want to go back.

Uses For Essential Oil And Applications Like Refillable Essential Oil Vape Pen

There are essentially three methods for essential oils to incorporate into the body either through absorption into the skin, inhalation, or ingestion. For each of these methods, there comes a variety of techniques for application. It’s important to note that the substances are not to have direct application to the skin without having dilution with a carrier oil. Typically, you would use a teaspoon of the carrier such as a vegetable or nut oil or even water in combination with three drops of the pure compound.

Essential Oil Application

The method that you use for application will depend on the effect that you want and which substance you choose. Some oils irritate the skin meaning they would not be appropriate for the topical method. A more appropriate technique may be inhalation for which you could try this application, a refillable essential oil vape pen alternatively. The condition will play a part as well in determining which technique you choose.

  • In most instances wound care will involve the topical method.
  • Inhalation or topicals will be more useful for mood-related effects, but the suggestion is that inhalation may be more fast-acting.
  • In a steam bath, both inhalation and topical absorption note to be useful.
  • Ingesting or swallowing essential oils is not recommended due to the damage that it can cause to the body. However, they can be useful when added to water and gargled. After gargling, you should spit out. You should not swallow any of the solutions. An example is a drop of tea tree oil in combination with a glass of water notes to be useful for a sore throat.

For those who don’t know how to use their aromatherapy most productively, consulting with a qualified aroma-therapist is advisable for guidance. 

Carrier Oil Guidelines

Natural food shops or bath and body stores that specialize in natural products will offer conventional carrier oils for use in diluting essential oils for use as topicals on the skin. Those carriers deemed to be cold-pressed or organic are the recommendation with examples such as apricot kernel, sweet almond, avocado, jojoba, grapeseed. These don’t offer a strong smell on their own and should be kept cold until use (in the refrigerator) and discarded if they become rancid. Typically, these substances will last up to a year when kept in the fridge.  Ne mindful of potential risks with the chemical as advised at http://www.webmd.com/beauty/news/20180813/essential-oils-promise-help-but-beware-the-risks.

Lavender is among the very few that can go undiluted on small places of the skin. Pure lavender has benefits for cuts or minor burns or, when inhaled, promotes sleep and relaxation.

The Benefits Provided Through Aromatherapy

The claim is that essential oils in combination with appropriate medical/holistic care from a healthcare practitioner can support the prevention of certain illnesses and assist in boosting the immune system. They note to have antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties that help in preventing certain illnesses from developing. 

The immune system boasts as benefitting from the substances being breathed in through the lungs and absorbed into the bloodstream.

  • Colds are less likely when the passageways are kept clear of bacteria and congestion through the use of peppermint, tea tree, and eucalyptus.
  • When inhaled, various oils, including sage, oregano, cinnamon, frankincense, and eucalyptus note to boost the immune system’s function.
