Vital Body CBD Products

There is no shortage of health and well-being within the not-for-profit walls of Esalen. Since our campus began welcoming guests in 1962, we have valued human potential and possibilities. We support alternative methods and modalities for healing and advancement. Embracing new ways to learn and grow is in our DNA. Incorporating CBD as part of our retail wellness selection was an easy decision.  

Alongside our t’shirts, books, chakra sprays, blankets, sage bundles and meditation scarves now sits this therapeutic gem.  Though CBD was first extracted in 1940 by chemist Roger Adams, it wasn’t until 1963 that Dr. Raphael Mechoulam was able to describe its chemical structure. People started educating themselves and others about the difference between THC and CBD, and the latter has now become more widely accepted as an alternative way of healing.

Currently on our shelves, there are two brands that include CBD in their ingredient formulations. Vital Body and Rejuvenate with Nousha offer products that are natural and filled with integrity.  These companies are women-owned and made in the U.S.A.

Based in Santa Cruz, California, Vital Body incorporates varying degrees of CBD depending on the chosen product. These creams, oils, balms and salt soaks are consistent best-sellers in both our retail space on campus as well as our online store. Not only do they work; they are also beautifully packaged.

You can try them by ordering our new CBD box or purchase these items separately.  

Rejuvenate with Nousha, The Reset

Created by an RN, Rejuvenate with Nousha’s Reset CBD Facial Oil is a sensory dream. Featuring essential oils, lemon balm, vitamin C and arnica oil to combat inflammation and reduce redness. With its natural herb botanical formulation, this facial oil allows the skin to calm while supplying hydration and a magical glow.

Yet to experience CBD? This is your opportunity to try something new, journey into a new adventure and discover healing the CBD way. Find all of the above products in our online store and bring Esalen home.  

“Remembering to be as self compassionate as I can and praying to the divine that we're all a part of.” 
–Aaron

“Prayer, reading, meditation, walking.”
–Karen
“Erratically — which is an ongoing stream of practice to find peace.”
–Charles
“Try on a daily basis to be kind to myself and to realize that making mistakes is a part of the human condition. Learning from our mistakes is a journey. But it starts with compassion and caring. First for oneself.”
–Steve

“Physically: aerobic exercise, volleyball, ice hockey, cycling, sailing. Emotionally: unfortunately I have to work to ‘not care’ about people or situations which may end painfully. Along the lines of ‘attachment is the source of suffering’, so best to avoid it or limit its scope. Sad though because it could also be the source of great joy. Is it worth the risk?“
–Rainer

“It's time for my heart to be nurtured on one level yet contained on another. To go easy on me and to allow my feelings to be validated, not judged harshly. On the other hand, to let the heart rule with equanimity and not lead the mind and body around like a master.”
–Suzanne

“I spend time thinking of everything I am grateful for, and I try to develop my ability to express compassion for myself and others without reservation. I take time to do the things I need to do to keep myself healthy and happy. This includes taking experiential workshops, fostering relationships, and participating within groups which have a similar interest to become a more compassionate and fulfilled being.“
–Peter

“Self-forgiveness for my own judgments. And oh yeah, coming to Esalen.”
–David B.

“Hmm, this is a tough one! I guess I take care of my heart through fostering relationships with people I feel connected to. Spending quality time with them (whether we're on the phone, through messages/letters, on Zoom, or in-person). Being there for them, listening to them, sharing what's going on with me, my struggles and my successes... like we do in the Esalen weekly Friends of Esalen Zoom sessions!”
–Lori

“I remind myself in many ways of the fact that " Love is all there is!" LOVE is the prize and this one precious life is the stage we get to learn our lessons. I get out into nature, hike, camp, river kayak, fly fish, garden, I create, I dance (not enough!), and I remain grateful for each day, each breath, each moment. Being in the moment, awake, and remembering the gift of life and my feeling of gratitude for all of creation.”
–Steven
“My physical heart by limiting stress and eating a heart-healthy diet. My emotional heart by staying in love with the world and by knowing that all disappointment and loss will pass.“
–David Z.


Today, September 29, is World Heart Day. Strike up a conversation with your own heart and as you feel comfortable, encourage others to do the same. As part of our own transformations and self-care, we sometimes ask for others to illuminate and enliven our hearts or speak our love language.

What if we could do this for ourselves too, even if just for today… or to start a heart practice, forever?
