Whether you have tried hemp soap or any other full spectrum hemp skincare products in the past or not, I am confident you will fall in love with Bellalicious Bath and Body organic hemp infused products just as my wife and I did!
Keep reading below to learn more about the benefits of hemp soap, ingredients used in the Bellalicious hemp soap recipe, and my entire Bellalicious Bath and Body products review!
Why Should You Use Bellalicious Hemp Soap?
For those of you who are knew to cannabis and hemp products, there is a dramatic difference between full spectrum hemp oil, CBD isolate oil, and hemp seed oil.
Full spectrum hemp oil pertains to the pure form of the oil, which is extracted from the hemp plant, since it retains the full spectrum of cannabinoids and other compounds found in the original hemp plant. Unlike CBD isolate products, full spectrum hemp oil also contains:
- Various Cannabinoids
- Essential Vitamins and Minerals
- Beneficial Fatty Acids
Although CBD isolate still has beneficial qualities, the full spectrum of ingredients in full spectrum hemp produce synergistic effects, which make your product much more valuable.
Hemp seed oil does not contain any cannabinoids, although it does contain fatty acids and other beneficial properties. Although hemp seed oil doesn’t have as many health benefits as full spectrum hemp oil, it is still a valuable carrier oil in certain situations.
However, it is important to know that hemp seed oil does not contain any cannabinoids at all.
Why is Hemp Soap Good for Your Skin?
According to a study produced in The Journal of Clinical Investigation,
“Administration of CBD to cultured human sebocytes and human skin organ culture inhibited the lipogenic actions of various compounds, including arachidonic acid and a combination of linoleic acid and testosterone, and suppressed sebocyte proliferation via the activation of transient receptor potential vanilloid-4 (TRPV4) ion channels.”
In other words, the application of the cannabinoid CBD (found readily in full spectrum hemp soap) suppresses the potential for production of “sebum” (grease).
However, that does not mean that hemp oil soap products with CBD simply dry your skin out.
According to the study The Role of Cannabinoids in Dermatology, which was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology,
“Perhaps the most promising role for cannabinoids is in the treatment of itch. In a study of patients with uremic pruritus on maintenance hemodialysis, topical application of a cream with structured physiologic lipids (derma membrane structure) and endogenous cannabinoids applied twice daily for 3 weeks completely eliminated pruritus (itching) in 8 of 21 patients (38%).”
The researchers believed that the main reason for the decrease in itching sensation is due to the anti-inflammatory properties of the cannabinoids. Which makes sense, considering both THC and CBD are strong anti-inflammatory compounds.
Furthermore, the most basic role of the cannabinoids you find in full spectrum hemp oil soap is to help regulate the bodies Endocannabinoid System. The Endocannabinoid System has many functions, but its main function is to maintain and improve homeostasis within the body.
In terms of skin application (such as when using soap), research indicates that hemp oil soap can help stabilize skin conditions (either oily skin or dry skin) and improve how your skin feels each day.
From my experience, Bellalicious hemp soap does exactly that!
Bellalicious Hemp Oil Soap Review
I used multiple different hemp soaps from Bellalicious, and I had incredible results with all of them.
However, my favorite was the Activated Charcoal Soap I tried.
Although all the hemp soaps were great, I enjoyed this one the best because I felt it was the best for removing the feeling of sweat from my body after practices during my previous basketball season. With this product, you can legitimately feel how the activated charcoal cleans your skin on a deeper level than any other soap product.
When you go to the Bellalicious Shop online, you will find tons of different hemp oil soaps with a wide variety of essences and ingredients.
Bellalicious Muscle Recovery Stick & Balm Review
Aside from the hemp oil soaps that I tried, the other products which impressed me more than anything were the Bellalicious Muscle Recovery Stick and Muscle Recovery Balm.
In my opinion, topical CBD products which use only CBD isolate are much less effective than full spectrum hemp oil products. Both of these Muscle Recovery products use full spectrum hemp, and your muscles or joints feel the difference within the first use!
Throughout my previous season I used these two products sparingly because I saved them for when I had minor injuries, and not just for daily sore muscles. For example, throughout the season I used these in (2018-2019) I had issues with muscle contusions, a knee sprain, a hamstring strain, a shoulder ligament sprain, a sprain in my thumb, and a few other problems.
None of these issues were significant, but they hurt a lot!
Furthermore, I was also dealing with nagging chronic back pain from the Pars Fracture I suffered in my 2017-2018 season.
When I needed significant relief, I used the Bellalicious Muscle Recovery products.
Unlike other muscle balms or topical CBD products, the Bellalicious products do not contain camphor or menthol- which cause intense cooling and smell extremely strong.
Instead, Bellalicious Muscle Recovery products are produced with organic butters, oils, and fragrances only.
I would still say that the Muscle MX CBD Balm for pain is my favorite CBD muscle balm, but these are definitely great products and are worht purchasing if you are going to go and purchase the Bellalicious hemp soap as well.

Concluding Thoughts – Bellalicious Bath and Body Hemp Soap Review
Aside from the quality products, purchasing hemp soap from Bellalicious is an investment in a woman owned small business instead of a large corporation.
The CEO of Bellalicious, Bella, began her incredible journey after a car accident which left her with injuries to her neck, and a broken knee. After six months of physical therapy and a subsequent knee surgery, Bella found out that the pain medications (opioids) made her feel extremely sick.
At this time, Bella began using full spectrum hemp oil products to control the pain and inflammation (swelling). Bella had great results in her recovery using full spectrum hemp oil, and she decided to create her own line of organic full spectrum hemp products herself. Bella is now the owner and creative director of Bellalicious Bath and Body, and her products are used by people from the range of professional athletes (like me), to post operation customers for their day to day well-being, and everywhere in-between.
Compared to other brands, the main difference with Bellalicious products is that all products are handmade. Due to that, the average turnaround time for the products you order is 3-5 days, but you cannot find fresher hemp products anywhere!
Bella’s bath and body products are made with pure love and a combination of:
- Organic Butters
- Essential Oils
- Fragrance Oils
My suggestion is to visit the Bellalicious Bath and Body website and choose your favorite scents for the hemp soaps and try any number of Bella’s other products as well. These products are crafted for personal use unlike any others, and I am proud to give them my recommendation!
