The summer has drawn to a close and with it a season characterized by leisurely weekends and family vacations. The stressful routine of shuffling kids off to school each day has returned, and work ramps up for many of us. September can be stressful.
One of the characteristics of CBD is its ability to help people regain a sense of calm and control. At Mission Farms CBD, we enhance the calming benefits of CBD in our Relax CBD line of products by adding organic essential oils that are known for their calming effects. The use of organic essential oils is one of our distinctions as a company. Many CBD companies simply add CBD to their tinctures and topicals, but we go a step further, making them more effective and more enjoyable to use by adding select essential oils.
Why Add Essential Oils?
Essential oils give plants their characteristic aroma and flavor. When you peel an orange you are smelling its essential oils. When you walk through a pine forest and take a deep breath, you are smelling the essential oils in the pine needles. These essential oils are comprised of a variety of organic compounds called terpenes. When you peel an orange you are primarily smelling the terpene Limonene. When you rub pine needles together you are primarily smelling the terpene Alpha-pinene. Terpenes delight our senses, but their value goes even deeper.
Terpenes are used by our body’s Endocannabinoid System, along with CBD. Terpenes can connect with different receptors in our body and nervous system, resulting in different effects. The fact that you feel more relaxed when you smell Lavender is not just nostalgia, it’s science. For our Relax CBD line, we select essential oils with terpenes that calm the nervous system.
What Essential Oils Are Used in Our Relax CBD Products?
Here at Mission Farms CBD, we use a variety of essential oils in our Relax CBD products. Any essential oil we use in a product that is taken orally is on the FDA’s GRAS list — Generally Recognized as Safe as a food additive. Here are some of the oils we feature in the Relax CBD line:

Create a Wind-Down Routine with Mission Farms CBD Relax CBD
I have a friend who is an elementary school teacher. As you can imagine, September is exhausting as she rebuilds up her stamina for long days of shepherding and herding a classroom of kids. She has developed a wind-down routine in the evenings with three products in our Relax CBD Bundle.
When she arrives home from school, she takes a dose of our Relax CBD Oil. Over the next several hours it will help calm her racing mind as she shifts her focus from the classroom to herself and her family.
When dinner is over, her husband and kids do the dishes as she retreats to the quiet of her bathroom. She lights some candles, draws a warm bath, and sprinkles a handful of our Relax CBD Bath Soak into the water. The combination of the hot water, CBD, and essential oils ease her tense muscles and help her winddown for bed.
She finishes her routine by rubbing Relax CBD Goat Milk Cream into her neck, shoulders, and any areas where she is still carrying tension. The CBD and essential oils continue to relax her muscles and mind, and the goat milk moisturizes and nourishes her skin all night long.
When combined, these Relax CBD products provide the luxury of a spa experience in the comfort of her own home.
Could you use a wind-down routine this fall?
I think we all could!
Well, we are here to help. Our Relax CBD Bundle is always 17% off versus buying the products in the bundle separately. It combines our Relax CBD Oil, Relax CBD Bath Soak, and Relax CBD Goat Milk Cream so you can start a self-care routine that helps you regain a sense of calm and control during a hectic season.
