What is CBD oil?
Ok first, let’s address the biggest question… no, CBD is NOT marijuana. Ok…Then what is it?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring substance of the cannabis plant. There are two primary species of cannabis, hemp and marijuana. Both contain CBD, but hemp contains lots of it while marijuana produces more THC. The stalks of hemp is where we’re extracting our CBD from, not from the buds of Willie Nelson’s favorite plant.
Important to know: CBD does NOT produce the mind-altering effects caused by THC.
The CBD from Nature’s Ultra (part of the Young Living family) is distilled into an isolate and is lab-tested to contain 0.0% THC which is hard to find.
So instead of euphoric trips and feelings of sedation, CBD actually helps promote feelings of calmness and relaxation! This is because CBD has an amazing ability to support us and help us achieve balance. Whether we are feeling off physically or mentally – the root causes can start from some level of ‘imbalance’.
How do you use CBD oil from Young Living?
Nature’s Ultra CBD oil is used topically on the areas that need the most support.
Topically on your skin
In some cases our joints and muscles desire some TLC, our skin is irritated, you name it. In cooperation with things like targeted exercises, healthy diet, meditation, and drinking plenty of water, we can also support some of these areas with CBD oil, Roller blends and CBD Balm.
I love using CBD topically after chasing kids around all day or after a hard workout! Also great for those on the computer a lot or with texting thumbs 😉 ! Using CBD topically in a muscle rub or roller can help support sore muscles and aches. I personally use it regularly on my forearms after I’ve been typing or texting too much and then do some hand exercises.

According to Young Living, “One of the factors that motivated the acquisition of Nature’s Ultra is that we recognized they share many of the same values as we do. They even share our Seed to Seal® commitment to quality, which we’ve verified through visits to their farms. Nature’s Ultra and Young Living are a match made in health!”
The Young Living infused Nature’s Ultra CBD products are created with essential oils and you can also enhance your CBD experience by pairing it with Young Living essential oils in your Starter Kit (plus many more). It’s important to note, the safest and most effective form of CBD is an isolate which is what Nature’s Ultra produces. By combining the CBD oil isolate with terpene-infused essential oils, you’re enhancing the potential benefits of your CBD experience with a more targeted approach. Terpenes are responsible for the unique aromas of essential oils. More importantly, smelling them directly contributes to the emotional support we get from using our essential oils.
Pairing CBD with Young Living essential oils
You can easily pair CBD with essential oils from your starter kit for an enhanced experience. The essential oils mentioned below have those awesome terpenes we talked about earlier and can enhance your experience for an even greater result. As always, it’s recommended that you consult a professional to create a tailored plan for your needs.
- Frankincense: applied topically to the face with CBD oil for skin rejuvenation.
- ️DiGize Vitality: applied to your abdomen with CBD oil to aid in tummy relief.
- Lavender: applied topically to your feet at bedtime with CBD for better rest and deep relaxation.
And this is only the start! You can enhance your experience with almost all the oils in the Young Living premium starter kit along with tons of others.\

When is the best time to use Nature’s Ultra infused with Young Living CBD products?
On the Go with CBD roll-ons
What we apply to our skin topically is absorbed into our skin. We want to be aware of the things that are bad for our health, and only put products on our skin that we know what’s in them. That’s why I love the CBD roll-ons from Nature’s Ultra because they practice the same Seed to Seal guidelines as Young Living.
When you’re feeling stress
Apply a CBD roll-on infused with Young Living Essential Oils then take some deep breaths or try a guided meditation and you’ll enjoy the benefits of relaxation from essential oils and CBD while improving your daily practices.
One of my favorite combinations is applying lavender essential oil topically to your feet at bedtime with CBD for deep relaxation. Try a relaxation exercise like tightening each muscle one by one and releasing.

FAQ: Is CBD oil safe during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?
Unfortunately there isn’t much research in this area yet when it comes to CBD. There are studies regarding marijuana and pregnancy/breastfeeding and use of marijuana should definitely be avoided. More info here.
However, several of the main concerns with marijuana use including impaired ability to properly care for your baby and second hand smoke, are not concerns with CBD oil. The main question is how much CBD is transferred to your baby and what effects will it have and that’s where the research is lacking still. You should always consult with your care provider with any questions.
This article is only referring to Young Living and Nature’s Ultra products which have very high standards of quality and 0.0% THC. Please do not apply what you read here to other brands. Again, always talk to your care provider and use your own judgment.
