Dedicated time for yourself, getting pampered, basking in a relaxed afterglow — there's nothing like a day at a spa. But since the pandemic struck, few of us have considered hitting a spa in the carefree way we used to.

Fortunately, there are some easy ways to create a custom spa experience in the comfort of your home. Better still, adding CBD as your star ingredient can take your DIY spa experience to a new level.

Sensible, Sustainable Choices

CBD (cannabinol) is known for many potential wellness benefits, and relaxation is top among them. South Carolina—based Harmony CBD is one of the leading brands making lab-verified, high-quality CBD oils, lotions and concentrates. Harmony CBD was the first CBD manufacturer to earn USDA-certified organic status thanks to sustainable hemp farming and solvent-free processing.

Harmony CBD's gently extracted, hemp-derived CBD is full-spectrum, retaining all of the natural compounds found in the plant. Those elements remain in the final product, leading to the desirable entourage effect. Note that full-spectrum CBD does contain trace THC (.3% or less), the psychoactive compound that occurs naturally in hemp, so always consult your physician about your wellness approach.

Set Yourself Up

Get a jumpstart on your spa day by ordering your favorite CBD products in advance, such as a Harmony CBD bundle of oil, balm, and softgels. Add to your order a botanical-infused cream or fragrant bar soap to enhance your day of rejuvenating skincare and relaxation.

The best spas are all about multi-sensory serenity. Since you're customizing your home for this special day, gather scented candles for aromatherapy, set up your speakers with chill music, and get your bath and bedroom's lighting and temperature to your personal sweet spot.

Set up a fresh bath towel, robe, and slippers for easy access, along with a washcloth or two for exfoliating or to double as a tub pillow.

Soak and Soothe
Next up, bath time! Pour yourself a sparkling beverage or herbal tea, fill your tub with warm or hot water and add bath salts or bubbles.

Then take a CBD capsule or place few drops of CBD oil under the tongue, and consider adding a few to your bath. Because CBD shows promise as an anti-inflammatory and it can be absorbed transdermally, your joints, muscles, and skin may also feel the benefits from a full-body soak.

Lather up with Harmony's Hemp & Double Mint, Hemp & Grapefruit Loofa, or Hemp & Sunflower Citrus bar soaps to hydrate and refresh your skin with all-natural ingredients.

The best spa experiences seamlessly transition from bath into lounge time. While your skin is still warm, apply Harmony's beautifully formulated 4Cs Anti-Wrinkle Cream on your face and hands and Mango Hydrating Lotion to your body for all-over moisturizing and revitalization. If night has fallen, consider a dollop of Lavender Night Cream.

By now, your joints and muscles should feel wonderfully loose, and you can add to their recovery with a targeted rubdown using Harmony's topical balms. With natural and organic ingredients like frankincense, lavender, turmeric, ginger and mint, each balm is made to promote natural healing, calm and tension relief.

Bonus for pet owners: Harmony also makes a CBD Hemp Oil for Pets, so share a few drops with your furry friends who could use a dose of serenity, too.

The full breadth of CBD's benefits is still being discovered, but consumers already appreciate its positive effects, from inflammation and pain relief to improved sleep and mobility, to general relaxation. Organic, hemp-derived CBD doesn't just have to be an indulgence but rather an integral part of your daily, at-home wellness routine.
