How to Keep Calm…

From CBD to essential oils and meditation, here are a few of our favorite ways (and items) to help you, your family and even your pets keep calm during trying times.


Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is certainly all the rage. From tinctures to topicals and beauty products, CBD ‘may’ be a natural option for you. It is derived directly from the hemp plant, a cousin to the marijuana plant. Our friends at share, “While CBD remains non-psychoactive (no high), it does interact with our internal regulatory processes through what is called the endocannabinoid system.” Please consult your physician for personalized medical advice.
