This Summer, Make it a Staycation to Remember
This year has definitely been one for the books. And while 2020 may not be shaping up to be all that we’d hoped it would, there’s no reason not to go out there and make the best of it!
While traveling and taking summer vacations might not be in the cards for a great many of us due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we can still figure out a way to have an amazing staycation right in the comfort of our own homes!
Staycations are a great way to create a custom-made, super-fun experience for you and your partner, your pet, and even your entire family. It’s time to think outside of the box and turn your home into this summer’s best private “getaway” vacation experience.
Before the staycation commences, you should really take some time to put a plan into action. Thinking about new ways to spice up ordinary doings is a great first place to start. In the event that you might be stuck on where to begin, we’ve put together our ultimate guide to crafting the best summer staycation for you and your family.
Innovative Ideas for Making Your Summer Staycation One to Remember
If you take away anything from our how-to guide for staycations, it should be how to think outside of the box when creating a fun vacation at home while using some amazing health-boosting products from FAB CBD to take your time off to the next level. Combining these tips and products will not only ensure that your time off will be both fun and memorable, but also healthy, relaxing, and rejuvenating.
Grill and Chill
We know that everyone loves to take advantage of the beautiful weather during the summer months. Having said that, it’s no surprise that most of the meals we eat during this season are cooked right outside on the grill.
To begin with, set the stage by adorning your backyard with some cool and interesting outdoor lighting and other festive decorations. In short, make it feel like a private tropical party oasis right within your own property lines.
Instead of grilling traditional summer fare like burgers and hotdogs, kick things up a notch by throwing some shrimp, chicken, or steaks on the grill along with ears of corn, eggplant, and other grill-worthy veggies. When it comes to packing in the flavor and punching up drinks, why not add a scoop of FAB’s Citrus Mojito Superfood into your ice water to bring on a refreshing, tropical vibe while you stay hydrated? FAB’s Citrus Mojito green superfood detoxes and cleanses, aids in digestion, hydrates and restores, supports immune function and mental clarity, preserves muscle and gives you the energy you need to enjoy your summer staycation. So not only will you be pampering your body from the inside, you’ll also be giving your tastebuds a tropical treat. If you want more of a frozen drink feel, make a virgin mojito by blending up some Citrus Mojito, ice, and water. Add to the refreshment factor by garnishing your mocktail with some fresh mint.
Infused Summer Cocktails and Mocktails Featuring FAB CBD Oil
We all know that the major theme of any staycation is taking it easy, resting up, and chilling out. What better way is there to chill out than by leisurely sipping on your favorite cocktail or mocktail? We’ve got lots of ideas on how to incorporate FAB CBD’s full-spectrum naturally flavored CBD oils into your favorite summer drinks.
Mint Cucumber Cooler
This refreshing mocktail will keep you cool and chill even as the temperatures rise.
To start, peel, seed, and chop three cucumbers. Next, pour ¼ cup water, 24 ounces of club soda, and 2 tablespoons of agave nectar or honey into a shaker or glass. Next, add 15mg or less of 300mg FAB CBD’s full-spectrum mint-flavored CBD oil (roughly 2 ½ droppers full). Stir, then add in ice cubes, a few slices of lime, and a ½ cup of fresh mint leaves, coarsely chopped. Stir once more before enjoying.
Summer Citrus Splash
This juicy cocktail is sure to brighten up any afternoon and let you glide lazily right into the evening. Unlike our Mint Cucumber Cooler, the Summer Citrus Splash contains any brand of your favorite vodka. Making this boozy treat is quick and easy. Simply combine 1.5 ounces of your favorite citrus-flavored vodka in a glass with 3 ounces of cranberry juice, 15mg or less of FAB CBD’s 300mg full-spectrum citrus-flavored CBD oil, and some ice. Stir the ingredients together, then garnish with an orange wheel.
Berry Blast Slushy
This chiller is great for summer lounging, parties, and other get-togethers. Our recipe also contains a sour kick to keep things interesting. To begin, add 8 ice cubes, ¾ cup water, ½ cup frozen mixed berries, ½ cup fresh mixed berries, ¼ cup lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of white sugar, a splash of orange juice, and 15mg or less of FAB CBD’s 300mg full-spectrum berry-flavored CBD oil to a blender. Next, blend everything together for about 30 seconds until you get a slushy consistency. Finally, pour the slushy into your favorite drink glasses and garnish with fresh berry slices.
Iced Vanilla Coffee Infusion
If tropical drinks aren’t your thing, then maybe coffee will do the trick. This creamy, smooth drink is a wonderful way to begin any staycation day! To start, you will need 2 teaspoons of instant coffee, 1 ½ teaspoons of pure vanilla extract, sugar to taste, 2 teaspoons cold water, 1 ¼ cups of cold milk, and 15mg or less of FAB CBD’s 300mg full-spectrum vanilla-flavored CBD oil. Simply place the first five ingredients into your blender and pulse until the mix looks smooth and foamy. Add in the cold milk and the CBD oil and pulse again until everything is well-blended together. Finally, pour the mixture over a few ice cubes and garnish with some chocolate shavings if you want to feel a little extra decadent.
Dog Days of Summer
While you and your family are relaxing and chilling out at your very own staycation vacation resort, don’t forget about your four-legged friend(s)! It’s time to let your furry friends reap all the benefits that CBD has to offer. FAB has an amazing line of CBD dog treats that are sure to keep your pooch calm, cool, and collected.
FAB CBD Crunchy Dog Treats are crafted without corn, soy, dairy, or wheat. Even though these hemp-based treats don’t contain any THC, your pup will still be able to get all the benefits that CBD’s cannabinoids and terpenes have to offer. FAB CBD Dog Treats come in a few different varieties, depending on what your pup’s needs are.
Just because you’re having a staycation, doesn’t mean that you also can’t have a spa-cation. If it’s a trip to a lush spa that you fancy, it’s no trouble at all to turn your bathroom into a five-star luxury spa getaway.
Begin by lowering the bathroom lights. Next, light a few scented candles. Tealight candles and votives work best in scents of lavender, eucalyptus, mint, citrus, or rose petal. Purchase a couple of high-quality, fluffy, overly large bath towels and/or a soft, bulky cotton robe to feel extra pampered.
Now that you’ve got the lights down low, the candles lit, your towels and bathrobe in place, it’s time to run your bath. But this isn’t just any run-of-the-mill bath night. For your spa-cation, you’ll add in some lavender scented epsom salt and a few drops of FAB CBD full-spectrum mint CBD oil to the water. But before you get in the tub, grab your favorite radio or device and play some soft spa music to listen to while you soak your worries away.
After you get out of the tub and dry off, keep that relaxed feeling going by massaging FAB CBD’s Topical CBD Cream into a few of the pulse points on your body like on your wrists, behind your knees, or on your neck. FAB’s Topical CBD Cream is made with 600mg of CBD and rich, full-spectrum hemp extract. The cream has a fresh and subtle blood orange scent that enlightens and refreshes for hours. CBD cream is a wonderful way to introduce all of the benefits that CBD has to offer into your skin and muscles. FAB CBD’s Topical CBD Cream is perfect for helping you to relax and rest easy.
If you still need an extra boost of relaxation at the end of your spa day, consider taking one of FAB’s tasty CBD Chews before bed. These delicious CBD gummies are THC-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, fruit-flavored, and vegan.
Treats for the Heat
Instead of hitting up the local ice cream shop, get the most out of your staycation by making your own CBD-infused popsicles. I dare you to try and find anyone who doesn’t enjoy an ice-cold refreshing popsicle on a sweltering summer day.
In making your CBD-infused popsicle, it’s best to start with a few drops of FAB CBD’s full-spectrum CBD oil in whatever flavor you desire. Then add the rest of the ingredients to your blender. A simple recipe for a delicious and refreshing popsicle is as follows:
- ½ cup orange juice
- 1 can pineapple juice
- ½ cup coconut milk
- 1 cup frozen fruit of your choice
- 3 drops or more of FAB CBD full-spectrum oil in berry, citrus, mint, vanilla, or natural flavor
- Add frozen fruit, orange juice, pineapple juice, and coconut milk to the blender.
- Add in 3 or more drops of FAB CBD oil (5mg or less). A half dropper full will equal 5mg.
- Blend everything together.
- Pour the mixture evenly into 6 popsicle molds.
- Place the molds into the freezer and let harden for at least six hours.
After the popsicles have set, go ahead and enjoy!
Final Thoughts: Making it a Great Staycation
Even though it might feel a little disappointing to not be able to visit your favorite vacation destination, rest assured, you can still make your staycation a fun and memorable one for you and your whole family.
There are so many things you can do to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. All you have to do is just think outside of the box. Even a normal, boring night grilling can be transformed into a home-cooked gourmet meal set in a secluded, tropical oasis.
Your bathroom is also not an exception. If it’s a spa getaway you desire, then take a few minutes to create that very same environment in your own bathroom. You will be amazed at what some candles, soft lighting, mood music, fluffy towels, and CBD oil can do to calm your nerves, uplift your spirit, and rejuvenate your soul.
While you’re physically relaxing and making the most out of your staycation, there is simply no reason why you can not pamper your body as well. The simple addition of a few FAB CBD products will add both fun and flavor into your drinks, your bath water, and even into your frozen desserts!
When it comes to staycations or spa-cations, the possibilities truly are endless, providing you open up your mind and expand your imagination to explore all of the fun and exciting options that are available to you. Make this summer a fun one, no matter where your vacation time is spent.
