Be You CBD Review & Giveaway

One thing I didn’t try to manage my ailments was CBD oil. CBD products are everywhere in NJ. I could count on two hands the number of shops that have just opened up in neighboring towns. CBD is definitely the new big thing.

I didn’t try CBD for several reasons. The first was the stigma attached to the products. Edibles? Cookies? Gummies? What am I, back in high school and college? Rub this CBD stuff WHERE, exactly? What will it do to me?

Other reasons:

  1. the purity of the product
  2. side effects (you SAY I won’t hallucinate, but WILL I?)

I was skeptical. I did my research. I asked Be You CBD if they needed a product reviewer because I was curious and wanted to try their products. I also wanted to promote the founders, Heidi and Jen, two California women boss babes. (For those of you that have followed Realm of Vibes, you know I love promoting women in business.)

What I wanted to relieve:

  1. stress and anxiety
  2. chronic fatigue
  3. right knee pain (on & off, chronic)
  4. neck pain (chronic for 10 years this January)
  5. rosacea
  6. postpartum hair loss 18 months later
  7. sleeping (not enough, waking up and staying up)
  8. strengthen my general immunity

When I chatted with Heidi, I shared with her some of my trials and tribulations. Guys, I am often not a peach. If you follow me on Instagram, you see in my bio alone that I don’t stop. I work almost full-time hours as an occupational therapist in geriatrics and pediatrics. I teach two barre classes a week. I have a husband who is a homicide detective and depending on the week, is rarely home. I have an almost 19-month-old daughter that is extremely active. I have two rescue dogs that also need my time and attention. I am counting down the minutes until my daughter wakes up from her nap and then this blog post will be over. I need to RELAX. I need to de-stress. I need my neck to stop feeling so much tension. I need my mind to turn off for 30 seconds. Do you feel me, readers?

So, Be You CBD stepped in. Be You CBD partnered with a boutique farm in central Oregon that grows organic, non-GMO, pesticide-free cannabis that is non-psychoactive. (This alleviated #1 in the reasons why I didn’t to try CBD section).

Now let me review the Be You CBD products. 

Holy Grail Tincture

Holy. Moly. The active ingredients in Holy Grail Tincture include 1000 mg full spectrum Hemp CBD Oil and MCT Oil. Natural Terpenes & Phytocannabinoids swarm inside this tincture.

Holy Grail Tincture can be used to improve health and vitality. As stated on their website, Be You CBD‘s customers report they often use our tincture to help reduce inflammation, find greater relaxation and give the immune system a boost.

You start using Holy Grail Tincture by dropping 1/4 of the dropper full under your tongue. You can increase as you see fit.

Earthy is a beautiful way to describe this tincture. Let’s be honest, it’s like liquid marijuana under your tongue, and it is absolutely delightful. What the heck was I waiting for? The smell alone puts me in a better mood!

I have been taking this for a week before bed. I would say within 15-25 minutes, I just feel a sense of calm. I. Am. Just. More. Chill. I feel a little bit lighter. I feel like I can just go to sleep without 1037937 thoughts coming into my brain.

I will definitely keep using Holy Grail Tincture.

Down Under Rub

Down Under Rub is Be You CBD‘s formula designed for muscle aches and body tension.

I love the smell of the Down Under Rub. It has very subtle hints of vanilla, and I love how it contains arnica extract and the essential oil blend, which are all great for healing.

Ingredients: Shea Budder, CocoBudder, Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Amyris Wood Oil, Vanilla Extract, Arnica Extract,  Helichrysum Oil, Bergamot Oil, and Eucalyptus Oil.  Contains: 500mg (1 oz jar) or 850mg (1.7 oz jar) Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil.

Down Under Rub is what I rubbed on my right knee and on my neck. Before teaching barre class, I would rub my right knee with a generous amount of creme. It is yellow and reminds me of ghee. My knee pain has dissipated and my neck pain has definitely lessened. I think consistency is knee when using CBD products, and I will definitely be implementing Down Under Rub when I feel signs of strain or tension.

Grumpy B*tch Balm

Period cramps are THE WORST. PMS is definitely the worst time of the month. I hate feeling like a bloated pig with an attitude problem.

Grumpy B*tch Balm contains the ingredients of the Down Under Rub, except for Eucalyptus oil.

I rubbed Grumpy B*tch Balm on my abdomen for cramps, my neck, my knee, and my temples to relieve a nasty headache I had from one of my daughter’s tantrums.

Again, love the smell and texture of Grumpy B*tch Balm and Down Under Rub. I will definitely continue to use these products on my journey of health and wellness.

Be You CBD also sells Be You Face Serum to help combat fine lines, skin irritations, rosacea, acne, and dry skin. Be You Face Serum can be worn under your makeup and for moisturizing overnight.

Bottom Line

Since using Be You CBD, my knee pain has dissipated,  and my neck pain has lessened.

I am definitely more zen.

I feel less anxious and that I can go to sleep with a lighter mind.

PLEASE USE CODE “Powerful!” at checkout on Be You CBD to let Heidi and Jen know I sent you! And now…

It was like Christmas all over again in our house this morning!

Joynergy Subscription Box

Emilia woke up to a Joynergy Subscription box that contains $100 worth of toys for a low as $30/month with free shipping. You pick your box based on sex and age range. Emilia got Ava’s Box which is for girls between the ages of 1-3.

Emilia loves her pull back cars, mini dinosaur eggs, LCD writing tablet, dinosaur finger puppets, projector flashlight with image reels, and a 12 pack of linen bags! 🤗

I love the variety and unisex toys that cover a variety of age ranges. None of them make noise, which is also a huge plus. These toys allow for her to use her imagination. Supervision is definitely required for all of the toys, especially the ones that contain small pieces.

A Relfection on 2019

This year…

1) I lost almost 30 lbs. Lifestyle changes. Zipping my mouth and realizing food is to sustain life, not the other way around. Make exercise a priority. Eat simply. Live freely.

2) The Medicare changes in SNFs literally killed me. I became and occupational therapist to help people and the PDPM system is not conducive to healthy outcomes. #sorryimnotsorry After 7 years in geriatrics, I got a part time job in a school. #GodHelpMe We shall see where this road leads.

3) I became an AFAA-GCFI and Barre Above instructor. In 2020, I am becoming Balletone, YogaFit, and TRX certified. I need a backup plan incase OT fails.

4. Jason has worked harder than ever. He is an amazing man, one I am truly happy to call my husband. He is a great provider and father.

5) Emilia seeiously transitioned from baby to toddler. She is now 18m old and I just can’t believe this little person. She is my little person. She is beautiful and super smart. I created something so special. She is my entire life.

6) Seriously thankful for the companies that have supported Realm of Vibes. I have gotten so many products to review and have truly enjoyed helping businesses grow.

This decade was amazing; Jason and I met, got married, bought a home, rescued 2 dogs (fostered 17), had Emilia and a partridge in a pear tree. Life has been good to us.

2020 — Keep me heading in the right direction of following my long term goals – my dreams, my aspirations. Keep my husband safe. Protect Emilia. Let her grow into a beautiful little toddler. Give Emmy all my smarts. Keep B and G healthy. My dogs are incredible creatures.

Blessings to my family and friends,

Happy New Year! Wishing you happiness and health in 2020!

Emilia LOVES to go outside.

It doesn’t matter if it is raining, snowing, or 100 degrees out, she needs fresh air.
