What do you think of when you hear the word herb? For some, the scent of oregano or other common kitchen ingredients may come to mind. For others, herb is one of many slang terms for cannabis. And for us? It probably comes as no surprise that we immediately think of plant-based wellness.
In point of fact, any plant can qualify as an herb if it is used for culinary or medicinal purposes. If it is used for its scent or flavor, a plant can likewise qualify as an herb. (So if you thought of oregano or cannabis, you weren’t wrong!)
A Carefully Curated Collection
With our focus on plant-based wellness, we carefully curate the herbs that we use in our Full Spectrum Hemp Oil products. Some we co-extract in house, using plant matter like leaves or flowers; others we use to infuse carrier oils. Whether we are working with whole plants or organic essential oils, we take the utmost care to create synergistic blends that address specific wellness goals.
Sun-grown Hemp is a constant at Entangled Biome: You’ll find Full Spectrum Hemp Oil in all of our products, from our specialty tinctures to our pet products. But we are constantly innovating our approach to plant-based wellness by exploring the potencies of herbs, both on their own and in unique combinations.
Herbs for Plant-Based Wellness
Lavender: If we had to choose a few of our favorite herbs for plant-based wellness (other than Hemp), Lavender would definitely be at the top of our list. One of nature’s most evocative scents, this beautiful flower can soothe your nerves, promote relaxation, fight inflammation, and improve the condition of your skin. Because we use Lavender in essential oil form (rather than as an artificial fragrance), its scent is subtle—never cloying. We use Lavender in our CBD-rich Bath Fizzies, Soaking Salts, or Bath + Body + Massage Oil to relax both the body and mind.
Sunflower: Another beautiful flower that doubles as an herb is Sunflower—and it’s another one of our organic essential oils. Sunflower oil is packed with fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants that provide a plethora of benefits inside and out, from your immune system to your skin and hair. We use it in our CBD-rich tinctures as well as our Bath + Body + Massage Oil.
Peppermint: Peppermint is a hallmark of the holiday season, which is just about upon us—-but we put it to use year round in the pursuit of plant-based wellness. Peppermint oil’s cooling properties can help relieve stiff muscles and joints when you apply our Comfort Cream or indulge with a Bath Fizzy. You can also enjoy Peppermint’s fresh taste and soothing effect in our CBD-rich Wellness Tinctures.
Eucalyptus: If you’re looking for plant-based wellness aids ahead of cold-and-flu season, give Eucalyptus a try! Eucalyptus can help relieve congestion and soothe irritated lungs, which means you can breathe easier when you are under the weather. Our Bath Fizzies and Soaking Salts are available in a Eucalyptus variety. Try one in a hot bath for an intensely aromatic experience.
Coconut: Rich in saturated fats, Coconut can provide relief to irritated skin while promoting your body’s natural healing abilities. When combined with Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, it can significantly boost the look and feel of damaged skin—making it an essential component of our Lemongrass Lip Balm and our Black Label Tattoo Balm. Whether you have chapped lips or a new tattoo, Coconut is an amazing plant-based wellness aid.
Helichrysum: Helichrysum never fails to brighten up our lab. This flower boasts anti-inflammatory properties and can boost immune function, improve digestion, and soothe emotional stress. With an abundance of sunny benefits, Helichrysum is one of our favorite herbs to work with.
Aloe: Aloe is full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and even antioxidants that can soothe and protect irritated skin. With its antibacterial and antiviral properties, it’s easy to see why we use Aloe in our CBD-rich Hand Sanitizer—which we make according to the guidelines proposed by the World Health Organization.
Ginger, Tumeric, Black Pepper: Some herbs belong together. For our upcoming Belly + Brain Tincture, we selected ingredients that can improve gut health in order to increase mental clarity and overall energy, as an inflamed digestive track can can mental fog and/or fatigue. Ginger, Tumeric, and Black Pepper are all anti-inflammatory, which means they can soothe digestive irritation—and potentially help you think more clearly.
Plant-Based Wellness—and Beyond
Driven both by our natural curiosity and our desire to elevate your bliss, we daily experiment with our organic ingredients. In addition to the herbs above, we also implement fungi like Shiitake, Reishi, Chaga, Cordyceps, and Turkey Tail. We even have a Throat Mist made with a Propolis, a product of bee hives that is packed with antioxidants.
Hemp will always be at the heart of Entangled Biome, but we delight in delving into the full array of nature’s powerful healers—all with the end goal of empowering your wellness. Boost your daily routine from sun up to sun down with our CBD-rich speciality blends.
