In Uncertain Times, We're Showing Up To Thrive
Things are unprecedented right now and full of uncertainty. BUT. We are making CBD Lemonade here at Simple Jane because now is truly the best time to reinvest in your health and wellness. We're talking about 3 ways you can use Simple Jane to keep you Thriving Under Pressure below...
If you're enduring a ton of chronic stress all day, you put your immune system in a compromised state by keeping it fatigued. That is why we have also been big proponents of baths always, be especially now while you have the time to slow things down.
For "Bath People" | Plain Jane Mineral Soak
More than Epsom Salts, we choose mineral-rich Himalayan Salt and magnesium and cure it in our unscented CBD oil to make our Plain Jane Soak. It's your typical epsom salts ELEVATED.
If you read our Simple Jane Blog (“Are You Getting Enough Magnesium?”) we know that magnesium is critical to almost all enzymatic functions in the body. It is responsible for energy production, protein formation, cell replication, and muscle relaxation. This isn’t just for athletes, this is essential addition to your wellness routine for every-day bodies.
A warm bath has been shown to lower your blood pressure, reduce stress, reduce inflammation and promote a most restful night's sleep. With the right ingredients you can reap all these benefits fro your own tub as well.
For "Not-Bath People" | On The Mend Soak. & Scrub
Breaking out the On The Mend Soak & Scrub to stimulate your lymph system is our go to for getting proactive about our immune response.
Your body's lymph system is a network of organs, nodes, ducts, and vessels that move lymph — a fluid containing white blood cells (those are your fighter cells!), proteins, and fats — from your tissues into the bloodstream. Your lymph nodes make immune cells to fight infection, and filter your lymph fluid to get rid of bacteria. As you can imagine, your lymph system is a super important line of defense against infections. Keep that lymph moving by going for a walk, drinking plenty of water, and doing a full body scrub with On The Mend and plenty of body oil and simply rinse it off in the shower! But extra points if you do the scrub and then slip into the tub to soak it all in for extra benefits.
Anyone else washing their hands like crazy?? (Trick questions, we all better be doing this). We need vigorus hand-washing and sanitation right now, but the result can be really drying to your skin.
That's why we have plenty of On The Mend Balm on deck. Available in both a travel size as well as our full-size balm in a push-stick, benefits of using the On The Mend Balm include:
improved moisturization - after all that hand-washing and antibacterial soap...so drying!
improved skin barrier
Research has shown that CBD has the ability to produce lipids, which are essential components of skin and play a crucial role in the skin’s barrier function. As your largest organ, your skin has the highest concentration of CB2 receptors in your body, which are the receptors that are most stimulated by CBD. Topical CBD is used to reduce inflammation in your skin at all levels.
Apply On The Mend Balm generously and regularly to help increasing the skin’s hydration and barrier function, and to regulate and treat the skin cells for healthy and thriving skin all over (best particularly on your hands).
Sex and stress walk a delicate balance. Too often, we find ourselves too stressed to enjoy sex, while the irony is, having more sex REDUCES your stress levels!
Studies have found that sexual activity prevents increases in blood pressure during stressful events, raises your endorphins, lowers blood pressure and stimulates your immune system. Sex boosts your body's ability to make protective antibodies against bacteria, viruses, and other germs that cause common illnesses. And by adding a Topical Aphrodisiac to your bedroom adventures, finding pleasure and connection is a dose of something we could all use right now.
We’re all trying to figure out how we’re going to do at-home workouts with gyms and studios closed…Having sex increases your heart rate and utilizes various muscle groups, burning about 5 calories per minute. JUST SAYIN’.
Sexual stimulation (including masturbation! Yes!) and orgasm can help keep pain at bay. Both activities can reduce pain sensation and increase your pain threshold. Orgasms result in the release of hormones that can help block pain signals. Some women report that self-stimulation through masturbation can reduce symptoms of menstrual cramps, arthritis, and even headache.
While you’re spending less time commuting and attending to the busy-ness of life, reinvest that time in the sheets.
