Aromatherapeutic Body Oil 

Read our DISCLAIMER

Combining a soothing massage with the benefits of aromatherapy is a no brainer. Adding cannabis simply takes the experience to the next level. If it’s a topical appliation you’re looking for when it comes to your medical cannabis, making your own infused body oil is actually easier than you may think. You simply make an infused base oil—just like you would for cooking—and then add in a few drops of essential oils. Using sensory-enhancing aromatherapy, essential oils are thought to help with everything from elevating your energy to creating a sense of quiet calm. It all depends on the types and combinations of oils you use.

To start you’ll need a selection of essential oils. You can find them online or at your local natural market. You’ll also need a cannabis-infused base oil. When making your own oil to be used as a topical massage oil, coconut oil is an incredibly moisturizing and easy to find option. Other ideal base oils include sesame, avocado, grapeseed and even olive oil.

 

CANNA-INFUSED COCONUT BASE OIL

For this recipe, you can use standard coconut oil, which will solidify at room temperature and has a noticeable coconut fragrance. You can also purchase fractionated coconut oil online or at a local health market. It will remain liquid at room temperature and has little to no aroma (depending on the brand).

Ingredients and Tools

  • 350 ml coconut oil of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower or soy lecithin
  • 10 grams of dried flower cannabis
  • Slow cooker (or cook over the stove carefully)

Directions

  • If you’re not using Maker’s Mix, start by decarboxylating your cannabis (to release the active cannabinoids) by grinding it and then spreading the cannabis onto a baking sheet evenly and bake it at 220-240 degrees Fahrenheit (104-116 degrees Celsius) for 30-50 minutes. This can be done ahead of time.
  • Using a slow cooker here is much easier, but if you don’t have one you can make your oil in a saucepan set to very low, watching it regularly.
  • Add your coconut oil and lecithin to your slow cooker, programmed to the warm or low setting.
  • After the oil has melted, add the ground cannabis to the mixture and stir.
  • Cook on the warm or low setting for 2-3 hours before turning off the slow cooker and allowing the oil mixture to cool slightly.
  • Strain the larger cannabis bits out of your oil and pour into an airtight container that’s clearly labelled.

Combine all of the ingredients in the container you will be using to store your oil. We recommend using a dark glass bottle, as it better protects the oils from light (which can reduce their potency). The oil blends can be applied to the skin at room temperature or heated. To warm up the oil, place the entire bottle in a glass bowl filled with hot water. Recipes can be doubled or tripled as needed.
