Exfoliating CBD Body Scrub Recipe

Nourish your skin with vitamins and nutrients, and leave it feeling invigorated & soothed with this gorgeous exfoliating CBD body scrub recipe!

Watch as Koren from Bristol CBD & The Colon Care Centre shares this simple and inexpensive recipe that you can make in minutes! It’s perfect for anyone wanting to treat themselves to some body pampering, or to help soothe dry skin conditions! Did we mention that it’s edible & tastes delicious?!? Oh hello…

For us at Bristol CBD HQ, a dream night-in includes a healthy dinner & lots of pampering!

We love snacking on home-made treats topped with a delicious Olive CBD tapenade spread, before settling down to a wholesome, revitalising bath! To set the scene we light a few fragrant candles, and a peaceful incense stick. For music, we zone out to our favourite jazz & blues playlist on Spotify, and then for the pièce de résistance…

We give our body a good scrub with our divine home-made exfoliating CBD body scrub, before soaking away in a hot bath. Perfect for a much needed recharge and some body pampering! 

The base ingredient of this divine DIY scrub (and sneaky edible treat!) is used coffee grounds…

The caffeine in coffee helps stimulate and promote healthy circulation, which in turn can help improve dry skin conditions such as eczema. It’s a great way to recycle your coffee, with an added bonus of smoothing out the skin. The grainy nature of coffee grinds also act as a wonderful light scrubbing agent!

Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory oats! 

Along with the coffee grounds, we use blitzed oats to soothe and cleanse the skin. Oats retain powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which help treat dry skin and remove dead skin cells. Oats also contain compounds called saponins, which are natural cleansers.

Detoxifying & cleansing lemon for added zest & skin vitality

As a natural fragrant for the scrub we love to use the zest of a Lemon and then a few drops of organic Lemon essential oil. Not only does the zest add an enchanting aroma to the scrub, but Lemon is wonderfully cleansing & detoxifying. 

Here are your main ingredients:

  • ½ Cup of used coffee grounds
  • ½ Cup of brown Demerara sugar
  • ¼ Cup of oatmeal (whizzed this up in the food processor)
  • ¼ Cup of melted down coconut oil
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ⅛ cup of olive oil
  • 2-3 drops of Doterra Organic Lemon Essential Oil 

Time to add some CBD Oil for an extra health & balancing kick:

For this recipe we used 1x full pipette of our high-strength 10% whole-plant Bristol CBD Oil. We generally only add CBD oil into this recipe if we are going to be using this scrub in / with a bath! If you’re having a quick shower you wouldn’t get the full benefits of the CBD oil. In a bath however, this is perfect and absolutely fab for a long soak along with the other natural and comforting ingredients. 

Time to mix it all together!

All you need to do is add all of the food based ingredients into a bowl, followed by the Olive Oil & Essential Oils…It’s a great time to get your hands into this and give it a good squidge together!

One it’s fully combined, you can decant the scrub into a mason jar / air-tight container and let it bind (as the Coconut Oil begins to set). If it’s too oily, then you can add a little bit more Coffee, or even some more Oats…

How to use:

Run a soothing bath, wet your skin, grab a handful of the scrub & have a good rub into your body! Enjoy a long soak in your bath and let all the scrub residue soak into your skin…

Feeling adventurous?

This recipe also tastes absolutely divine! Coffee grounds contain loads of antioxidants to help boost your memory and concentration & are fab treating post exercise fatigue!

If you did want to take the turn into a more yummy edible mix, then the key ingredient is our dearest friend…Cacao! All you would need to do is follow the alternative instructions below:

1. Substitute out the olive oil

2. Replace with ⅛ cup of cacao butter

3. Add ¼ cup of cacao powder and mix it together!

Spoon this healthy snack into small balls, or use ice cube moulds. You can then cool in your fridge or freezer…We love to use ice cube moulds for our healthy snack recipes; you can see an example of this in our recent Yummy CBD Chocolate Keto Energy Bites Recipe.

And there you have it…Divine, zesty chocolate bites, and an energizing CBD body scrub! 

If you do give either the scrub or it’s edible other half a go, let us know what you think. Please tag us on Instagram @bristolcbd so we can see the recipe in action!

Happy scrubbing & snacking!

Divine CBD Golden Milk Recipe

Turmeric root is highly regarded for it’s vast array of health-giving benefits. Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and health promoting properties.

This yummy recipe is a great alternative to a sneaky Cappuccino or other hot drinks. The spices add for a delicious chai taste, and the beauty of it is that you can adapt the recipe to include different flavourings to meet your needs. 

This recipe is broken down into two sections; 

  1. Making the CBD Turmeric Paste 
  2. Using the CBD Turmeric Paste to make CBD Golden Milk. 

This recipe for this paste will go a long way; making around 20-30 cups of delicious CBD Golden Milk!

Here are your main ingredients & instructions for the CBD Turmeric Paste

  • 100g of Turmeric
  • 75g of Coconut Oil
  • 1x cup of cold water
  • 1x tspn ground black Pepper (Piperine is incredible for enhancing the bioavailability of Turmeric)
  • 2x tspn Cinammon (Great for flavour, but also as a blood sugar balancer)
  • 2x tspn Ginger (From the same family as Turmeric & great for alleviating nausea & cramps)
  1. Pop the ingredients in a saucepan and heat for 5 minutes
  2. Add a little bit more water if required
  3. The end result will be a thick paste

Time to add some CBD Oil for an extra health & balancing kick:

For this recipe we used a whole pipette (roughly 20 drops) of our favourite 500mg 5% Gold Bristol CBD Oil. CBD evaporates once it reaches 170° , so we tend to add it at the end of cooking. This Gold CBD oil is great for cooking with because it doesn’t harbour the bitter flavour of our other CBD Oils. It’s perfectly disguised in food! 

Remember to give this paste a really good stir and mix the CBD oil well and truly in.

You can then pop the paste (once cooled) in a jar and it will keep for around 3 weeks

Here are your main ingredients & instructions for the CBD Golden Milk

  • 1x cup of plant milk (we love Oatly milk!) 
  • Cardamom seeds (adds a lovely chai flavour & great for the digestive system)
  • 1x tspn Turmeric Paste per cup of milk

To make this CBD Golden Milk:

  1. Use a saucepan set over low heat
  2. Add your plant milk, and then heat up to a gentle simmer
  3. Next up, add your yummy golden Turmeric Paste & stir until dissolved into the milk
  4. Once the paste has combined, let your milk cool slightly and then serve away!

Feeling cheeky? Why not whizz it up with a milk frother or stick blender! We love a sprinkle of Cinnamon on top…

Feeling adventurous? Add some Maple Syrup, or Honey to satisfy that sweet tooth!

If you do give this CBD Golden milk a whirl, let us know what you think. Please tag us on Instagram @bristolcbd so we can see your cuppa! 

Enjoy,

To make this CBD Olive Tapenade:
