Topical Oil Beauty Hacks

Generally I use the Pain Relief Oil on my legs for the aches and pains that come from standing all day or from the aches I get from wearing any shoe with a higher heel than my sneakers. To be honest I wear slippers most of the time like I’m your 90 year old grandma but of course I make it look cool. 😉

I have friends that use it on their sore aching knees since it’s easier to apply on larger body parts than the balm. The liquid application makes it easier to apply on larger surface areas such as hips and of course it’s great for a full back massage! I’ve recently decided to start experimenting with the oil to see if I could find any other uses besides massage and these are the beauty hacks I’ve discovered!

Inner Thigh Chafing

I don’t know about you but I certainly don’t have a thigh gap to prevent my luscious lady thighs from rubbing together and causing uncomfortable friction when I wear dresses & skirts without hosiery or shorts underneath. This becomes painful in a very short amount of time depending on the weather and activity level.

One day I decided to wear a skirt to run to the store even though my all my bike shorts were dirty. I figured I’d try the oil on my thighs to see if that would make my quick trip to the store less painful than the last time I went out without an added layer of protection. I am happy to say it worked!

Total summertime game changer! Yesterday my friend Lizzie tried it at work and thanked me profusely for my suggestion. I’m thrilled my friend made it through the day without the burning rubbing feeling you get from too much inner thigh friction for eight hours.

So just rub the oil on the insides of your thighs before heading out for the day. The oil will keep your skin from getting dry so there will be less friction and of course the cannabis will help calm any pain that occurs.

After Shave For Ladies

Have you ever forgotten to shave your legs during your shower/bath and chose to just do a quick dry shave so you could still wear those shorts or skirt you picked out for the day?

Then you know just how raw and uncomfortable your legs will be feeling for hours afterwards. I’ve discovered that our Pain Relief Oil not only calms that right down but it also moisturizes your poor skin so you can go back to just worrying about whether or not your skirt is too short for your activity level. Just apply the oil after your quick dry shave to soothe your skin and reduce the irritation.

Sunburn Relief

This one might not be strictly a beauty hack but I feel like the redness and peeling you get from sunburns definitely affects your self confidence so close enough. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Over the summer I tried applying the peppermint scented Pain Relief Oil on my sunburn thinking the cooling sensation of the peppermint would help ease my pain & discomfort. I didn’t experience any cooling sensation on my burn but it did end up calming the pain. I had to use a lot to calm the pain at first and I did notice my skin never got that tight over cooked feeling I generally associate with bad sunburns so that was pretty great.

The biggest thing I’ve noticed (along with a few friends who tried based on my recommendation) was that the burn healed faster than expected and my skin never went into the peeling phase.

I found this more effective than some of the cooling aloe gels I’ve tried in the past where I’d be reapplying more than recommended for relief only to still end up peeling and gross. I do think I should eventually develop a cooling formula for sunburns but the regular stuff works in a pinch. 👍🏼

Corona virus and cannabis topicals?

Sorry, cannabis is not going to cure you or prevent you from getting the Corona-19 virus but they can make you feel a bit better if you get hit.

The BC Center for disease control states “The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory illnesses, including the flu and common cold. They include cough, sneezing, fever, sore throat and difficulty breathing.” However a local medical professional has given me a bit more details than that. Sore throat and a dry cough are the signs that the hospitals were told to look out for in cases of suspected Covid-19.

Definitely not me. There is no Covid-19 exposure at The Rad Scientist Topicals as of today! 👍🏼

Topicals can’t help with coughing, sneezing, fever and difficulty breathing but a cannabis balm with eucalyptus rubbed on your sore throat can help ease your discomfort. All of our extra strength balms contain eucalyptus so you can get some of the benefits even if you hate the smell of plain eucalyptus.

Our cannabis balm could help any chapped skin from excessive nose blowing or wiping. It can also provide localized pain relief for sore achy muscles.

If you find you’re getting headaches and sinus pain, then reach for one of our headache rollers! Eucalyptus is extra beneficial as it can help clear airways but any of our scents can help with headaches.

If baths are more your thing, our Euphoric Bath Collection has some great treats for those tired aching muscles. It’s a total game changer if you’ve been coughing so hard your back and/or abs hurt since you can treat the pain while relaxing in the tub before bed. You get the pain relief plus the added benefit of super soft skin and I don’t know about you but I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love soft skin!

Don’t forget: nothing can replace acetaminophen to stop a fever. I’ve been told ibuprofen & other nsaids make the symptoms worse but acetaminophen works best for fevers so why take the chance? It sounds like it’s similar to the flu and it’s mainly the elderly at risk so keep your kids away from grandma as she would be higher risk for pneumonia can follow.

Remember to wash your hands and try not to touch your face while in public. Stay healthy, stay safe friends and of course share your favorite topical tips in the comments! We’d love to hear them!
