In knowing how to use tincture properly, it’s first necessary to understand that slowly and cautiously increasing the dosage is usually the most effective approach to track the therapeutic effects and relieve any discomfort. Likewise, lower dosage is not really “more” than what is applied directly to the skin. Moreover, tincture dose shouldn’t be used by itself with only the dropper-filled method.
To begin, you should consider the type of treatment you are using. If you are applying tincture directly to the skin, then it’s always safe and advisable to start out with a higher dosage and work your way down. However, if you are using a cream or lotion, it’s advisable to use lower doses while your skin is still slightly soft. The higher the percentage you apply, the higher the risk for your skin of drying out as well as damaging the healing process.
How to use tincture on skin? There are several ways to do this depending on what is available on store shelves. When using oils and balms, remember to always mix them up prior to application. This prevents any uneven distribution which can be a potential cause of irritation.
How to use CBD tinctures on hair: The same principles apply to using them on skin and hair. Remember to mix up the carrier oil/soap and the tinctures/drops prior to application. It is then possible to coat your entire head with the carrier oil/soap mixture, leaving out the tips or ends where the tinctures will be applied. Massage the oil into your scalp and hair. It is essential that you rinse thoroughly after every few massages.
How to use CBD tinctures on nails: Nails that have been damaged by trauma or disease, or have become brittle due to excessive heat, can benefit from application of tinctures on their own. Apply directly to your nails. Make sure you cover each nail with the drop or tinctures solution before application. Let dry. Then apply additional drops of the carrier oil/soap and repeat until desired results are achieved.
Learning how to use tinctures properly is essential to your overall health. Though the short term results can be impressive, they are certainly not meant to last. As with many other holistic health practices, the long-term positive results you receive are much greater than the short-term discomfort of a skinned toe, hand, or toe. By using tinctures correctly, you can get the results you desire without pain, risk, or expense.
