As a girl who is constantly on-the-go, I stopped by the Irie Bliss Wellness shop in Weymouth, Mass. to get my hands on a new travel-size topical. Now, I have tons of lotions, salves and balms, but none that are small and easy to carry around. Imagine my joy when I found the Wanderer’s Bundle: Four different, 5ml salves that work for a wide range of ailments, and a bonus pocket balm with 50mg CBD that works wonders for lips. This $60 bundle was a great value and perfect for my traveling needs.
CBD Lavender Body Butter 20mg CBD
Whipped and light consistency with a pleasant lavender scent and avocado oil undertone. With less CBD than the other topicals in the bundle, this is meant to be used on large surface areas as a lotion. The lavender is calming, relaxing and great for daily use on any dry skin. This is a product that you take out for anything and everything – a go-to when you’re on-the-go!
CBD Mint Massage Balm 50mg CBD
Thick and oily balm with a subtle mint scent that does not overpower. It does give the minty zing that you would expect, but also stays grounded. With active ingredients like peppermint and eucalyptus, this balm can be good for acne and can greatly reduce swelling. However, an oily salve can leave behind residue which can clog pores – so it is important that you wipe away any excess, and if you have sensitive skin, do not apply directly to the face.
CBD Healing Salve 50mg CBD
A trio of menthol, peppermint and wintergreen, this salve’s smell will clear your sinuses and help to relieve all sorts of inflammatory conditions. Featuring Camphor oil (derived from the wood of the Camphor tree), this medicinal topical can be used to relieve chest congestion or apply anywhere on the body to relieve pain, irritation and even itching. Definitely an impressive salve to have in your apothecary and my personal favorite of the bundle because of its effectiveness – the ingredients complement each other perfectly and powerfully.
CBD Sports Balm 65mg CBD
The strongest topical of the whole bundle – designed for tired and sore, muscles and joints. Irie Bliss gives an extra CBD punch to this balm to make sure you get the benefits that you need. After yoga or a long run, apply directly to the affected area and rub in thoroughly. The frankincense oil gives a pleasant earthy scent and can also provide many useful benefits, as it is known as the “King of Oils.” Studies show frankincense can even regenerate new skin cells!
