CBD has become a real buzz word in the world of wellness recently and one of our favourite places to relax and unwind in London, Cowshed Spa, have jumped on this wave by adding CBD therapies onto their treatment list.
For those who don’t know, CBD, or cannabidiol is found in the cannabis plant. Alarm bells will ring for some people when hearing the word ‘cannabis’ but we can assure you that the use of CBD in the beauty market is completely safe, non-addictive and non-psychoactive. CBD is rich in both omega 3 and 3 which help maintain healthy, youthful skin by boosting the elasticity and protecting the skin from ageing through the antioxidant properties. CBD also acts as an anti-inflammatory, calming inflamed skin such as acne, redness and even skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. CBD has also been linked to pain relief, helping to reduce joint issues and muscle stiffness.
Cowshed Spa has teamed with MariPharm to create two bespoke treatments which incorporate CBD oil. MariPharm has created the purest form of CBD oil in the world which is odourless and colourless. The treatments include the CBD facial, a 60-minute anti-inflammatory relaxing treatment using CBD-infused cream, aimed to calm irritated skin. The second treatment is the CBD massage, a de-stressing treatment enhanced with the use of CBD essential oils. This 60-minute treatment is geared towards reducing muscle pain and discomfort. The oil is massaged directly into the affected areas using Thai compressors which help to relax the muscles.
