The Benefits of CBD in Aromatherapy

The Benefits of CBD in Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy has become very popular in recent years.  From large companies to independent distributors, we’ve seen a lot of information about the benefits of various oils and their uses to provide natural solutions topically, in diffusers, and countless other methods.  

CBD has also gained a lot of popularity for its various benefits for people and pets.  So why not combine essential oils and CBD together? Let’s look at why this could be a benefit to you. 


First, let’s go over aromatherapy.  Aromatherapy has been around for thousands of years, with various oils of plants being used for natural therapies.  What makes up these oils is a compound called a terpene, which houses the scent of each oil. A plant such as a lavender or eucalyptus typically only has 1 or 2 distinct terpenes, which is why the scent of those plants is so distinct.  When you look at a plant like cannabis, there are over 100 terpenes that can also be used to create an essential oil.  

So, how does it work?  Smelling something triggers a response in the receptors inside of your nose. This sends a signal to your brain, which activates the olfactory cortex: AKA that part of your brain that recognizes the smell.  Have you ever smelled something and had a memory of something? That’s another part of this process. This is how aromatherapy works. Certain smells can help you relax, boost your mood, ease stress, along with many other benefits.


Your body has a system of receptors called the endocannabinoid system.  This system is throughout your whole body and your brain and responds to cannabidiol, or CBD, which is why your body responds to CBD as a natural remedy for many conditions.  When CBD binds to those receptors, it may  trigger a balancing response in your body.*

CBD and Essential Oils

With the possible benefits of aromatherapy and the many uses of CBD, it just makes sense to combine them.  There are various ways to receive these benefits:  you can massage them into your skin, put them in a diffuser, and even spray them onto your pillow before bed.*  Zatural’s new line of CBD Infused Essential Oils will offer many options so that you can find a natural solution and keep it Zatural.
