CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol, is a one of the main natural cannabinoids in the industrial hemp plant.
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that attach to the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors in your body and brain.
Hemp has more than 113 known cannabinoids in it.
The receptors are inside the membranes of your cells in your body.
Research has identified two
cannabinoid receptors. CB-1 is found primarily in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and
organs. CB-2 is mainly in the immune system and related areas.
We are very diligent about our protection of earth
and its citizens. We hold the highest standards for our essential oil production process, bringing the
world the finest products available. From the seed of the plant to the seal on the bottle, our high standards
are integral with who we are.
CBD interfaces with your body's Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS coordinates systems in the
body like hunger, emotions, pain, recall, parts of the nervous system, etc. Endocannabinoids and
their receptors are all over the body, including connective tissue, organs, brain, glands, and
immune cells. The cannabinoid system performs different tasks depending on the tissue, but in all cases,
homeostasis is the desired outcome.
Homeostasis refers to a system being in a stable or balanced state. It is the body's mechanism to maintain a
steady internal environment, which it does by always monitoring and adjusting based on current conditions.
For example, when we become stressed, our adrenal glands release cortisol. This is commonly known
as the "fight or flight" hormone, which lets us react quickly in a dangerous situation.
Is CBD Safe?
CBD is considered "generally well-tolerated with a good safety profile" in a 2018 World Health
Organization report. Getting your CBD from a safe, trusted company with high quality controls is
very important; many CBD companies do not have adequate quality control and
don't know where their product is sourced.
We have one of the best quality control systems in the industry.
CBD versus THC
CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, which is also in the cannabis plant) are different.
Sometimes, the two are confused.
CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause the euphoric side
effects THC is known for. This means CBD products can be used without concern that THC would
cause a reaction.
CBD and THC both bind to the CB-2 receptor while interfacing with the CB-1 receptors differently.
THC's molecular composition allows it to bond directly with CB-1 receptors. When this bond is formed,
the reaction creates brain signals that trigger psychoactive effects of
CBD does not bond directly with CB-1 receptors
according to research.
Its presence can invalidate the bond between THC and the CB-1 receptors, canceling
side effects caused by THC.
Are hemp & marijuana the same?
No, they are different. Both plants are in the same Cannabis plant family, but hemp is completely different from
marijuana in how it works, how it's grown, and how it's used.

Young Living’s glamping beauty school is currently going on this week up here in Idaho and we are only 20 minutes away from the YL farm where it is being held at. My mom is attending, and I went with her one night for all the beauty DIYs they had. And I am so glad I did because this beauty DIY is a life changer! Making your own makeup palette is sooo simple and fun with savvy minerals!
I love how you can completely customize it with eyeshadows, blushes, bronzers, foundation, and even lipstick. You can even create your own colors. And it’s super easy to do with savvy minerals because its powder makeup, and it’s all natural, so you don’t have to worry about chemicals or the makeup not forming well enough.
I had a lot of fun experimenting with making this pressed palette and I ended up doing two blushes, one bronzer, one lipstick, and several eyeshadows.What’s super awesome about this beauty DIY is that you can put most of your makeup necessities in the palette and use it while traveling for saving space! And it’s way easier to use instead of messy powder. The empty palette I got has magnetic removable pans and a nice big mirror with a cute lettered saying on it. I found the same palette on amazon( I linked to it below), it just doesn’t have the customization.
I hope you enjoy this awesome beauty DIY and try it out!

Candle and spoon if doing lipstick

Young Living ART Refreshing Toner in a small dropper bottle
DIRECTIONS FOR EYESHADOW:
Take the plastic insert out of the eyeshadow container using your nails, a popsicle stick, or a butter knife- be careful, it plumes!
Add about 30 drops of ART toner in the eyeshadow and gently mix until it has the consistency of mud.
3. Scoop out the mixture into the eyeshadow pan and gently spread into it. Place a small piece of paper towel on it and put a quarter over it and gently press on it. Remove the paper towel and quarter and place pan in eyeshadow palette. Don’t touch it- it’s wet. It should look something like this:
Let it dry for about two hours. And that’s it for the eyeshadow!
DIRECTIONS FOR BLUSH, BRONZER AND FOUNDATION:
Take out the plastic insert from inside the makeup container and scoop out a nice teaspoon or so and put into a small bowl.
Add the toner, until the consistency is like mud and spreadable. You made need to add a little more powder and toner if it’s not enough to fill the pan.
Spread it into the eyeshadow pan and place a small piece of a paper towel over it and a quarter over that. Press down gently and then remove.
Place in palette and let it dry.
DIRECTIONS FOR LIPSTICK:
Light the candle and scrape the top part off of the lipstick.
Put it in the spoon and hold over the candle, mixing with a popsicle stick until melted.
Pour into a eyeshadow pan and let it cool and harden.
Place all your eyeshadow pans into the palette and let everything dry and harden- about two hours. Enjoy!
