Why not end summer on a good note? Rejuvenated, satisfied, and well-rested is the experience we are looking for as summer winds down and responsibilities pick back up. What we often feel instead is dehydration, dry skin, and two too many hangovers by the end of the season. We’ve all been there, wishing for just one more week to rest and restore before getting back in the swing of things like work, sports, and school projects. So let’s get intentional.
In the age of the Internet, CBD and La Croix, having a restful and healthful ending to your summer should be a breeze. And over at Onda, we’re pretty sure we found our perfect summer companions: whole hemp CBD and coconut oil. Most Onda products are made with a coconut oil base, providing you with an everyday staple for your summer wellness tool kit. We’ve compiled three ways you can use Onda to transform the end of your summer into a rejuvenating one. Plus, we’ll introduce our newest mate to the Onda CBD line.
Sub Out Alcohol with Your Onda CBD Tincture
Are those alcoholic beverages in the sun leaving you dehydrated and drained? Want to take a break but nervous your FOMO will affect your time spent with friends? No problem! Thanks to all the fun seltzer waters on the market these days like La Croix and San Pellegrino, you can whip up a healthy CBD mocktail in mere minutes! Mix your favorite non-alcoholic ingredients in ice, dress it up with sliced fruit or berries, add a dropper of Onda Whole Hemp Infusion tincture, and viola… blissful hydration in a cup.
Here’s one of our go-to summer mocktail recipe:
CBD Watermelon Mint Mocktail
2 oz San Pellegrino
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
3/4 oz agave syrup
5-6 mint leaves
1 oz watermelon juice
1 dropper of Onda Whole Hemp Infusion (20-25 mg CBD)
Muddle everything except the San Pellegrino. Add the San Pellegrino and ice, shake and strain into a glass with ice and garnish with a mint sprig. Enjoy!
Use your Capsules for On-The-Go Skin and Wound Care
Our Whole Hemp Capsules are made up of hemp-infused organic coconut oil. Nothing more, nothing less. The best part of these capsules, other than their simple ingredients, is that you can use them topically, too.
Cannabinoids contain potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, according to mounting research, making CBD equipped to balance your skin on a cellular level. Coconut oil is high in antioxidants and considered to be an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. When you combine coconut oil and full spectrum hemp, you’ve got yourself an adequate tool for your first aid kit.
You can aid virtually any part of your body that is feeling especially worn; sunburns and blisters, chapped lips, bug bites or sun rashes. You name it; our capsules can remedy it.
Coconut oil is excellent at soothing sunburn. Cool the affected skin with a washcloth and when the burn has calmed down, gently apply a 25 or 50 mg CBD capsule to the affected area. If you reapply regularly, not only will the painful sting disappear, but your skin will have the best chance of recovering without having to peel.
The other day I found myself with an infected cuticle. It was very sensitive and painful to the touch. Since I was traveling, I had few resources to remedy it. I decided to add an opened Onda capsule to a bowl of warm water. I soaked my fingertips for 20 minutes, pat them dry, and applied more coconut oil to the affected area. I repeated this about four times, and my cuticle healed up very nicely. It went from painful to the touch, to easy-breezy within just a couple of days with nothing but a bowl of warm water and Onda’s 25 mg coconut capsules.
Apply Your Balm as an After-Sun and Hike Remedy
Too much fun in the sun? Hiked a few extra miles than intended? We have a balm for that. Introducing Onda’s Whole Hemp Body Balm. Our newest release has come just in time to help you recoup from your summer adventures. Our Whole Hemp Body Balm is pure with only five ingredients: organic olive oil, organic hemp seed oil, beeswax, regeneratively farmed full-spectrum Onda CBD oil, and eucalyptus essential oil. That’s it.
We love this balm because of just how multi-purpose it. Eucalyptus oil is a powerful agent in helping to heal sunburns, acts as a natural bug repellent, and can aid in relieving joint and muscle pain. Olive oil has been used as a moisturizer since ancient times. Much like coconut oil, olive oil contains many antioxidants and won’t clog pores. The beeswax acts as a moisture barrier on your skin, protecting it from drying and allowing the oils in the salve to soak into your skin.
Well, there you have it. Three ways you can apply Onda to your summer wellness regimen. So stay hydrated, take your CBD, soak up the sun, and relax sweetly. Summer isn’t over yet.
