The popularity of CBD has exploded in recent years for its ability to safely relieve pain and induce relaxation. So, it makes sense that nail salons would find ways to incorporate CBD into a relaxing manicure or pedicure. Woodhouse Spas have done just that by offering manis and pedis enhanced with soothing, ultra-moisturizing CBD-infused products at their 70+ US locations. If you’re wondering whether you should do the same at your own nail spa, Chloe Nelson, one of Woodhouse Spa’s nail coordinators, has the info you need.
How does CBD benefit the skin?
CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant that fights bodily inflammation. It does not induce the high that THC, another cannabis compound, is notorious for. In fact, CBD products are legal in all 50 US states and must contain less than 0.3% THC. Most CBD products contain well under that legal limit and will not appear in drug screenings.
CBD is also useful in preventing and treating severe dry skin disorders. “Hemp seed oil is high in fatty acids that rejuvenate the skin and help it to retain moisture - improving texture and appearance,” Nelson explains.
What are the services like?
Woodhouse Spa offers both CBD manicures and pedicures. Each covers all essential nail care. The pedicure in particular starts off with a Rosemary-Mint Hemp Fizzing Bath Soak from natural skincare brand Farmhouse Fresh, which relaxes and softens the feet.
After the exfoliation portion of the CBD manicure or pedicure, Woodhouse uses Farmhouse Fresh’s Rainbow Maker Warming Hemp Relaxation Dual-Phase Body Oil. The oil sinks deeply into the skin to provide lasting hydration and radiance.
“The warming Farmhouse Fresh hemp oil takes the calf and foot massage to a whole new level,” Nelson says. The CBD may also help to soothe any aches that the client may be experiencing in their hands or feet.
If you have clients who need some extra relaxation, pain relief, or moisturization during their nail services, incorporating CBD may be a great option for your spa. Farmhouse Fresh is among many brands featuring CBD products that offer wholesale partnerships to spas.
