Let’s discuss how CBD oil bath bombs are made and their significance in promoting health and wellness to our bodies.

Recipe for CBD Bath Bomb

Tomakea CBD bath bomb at home, you need a high-quality CBD isolate, the highly concentrated, pure, and crystalline form of CBD. This is a straightforward recipe, and most ingredients are easily available at home. Although recipes vary, these are the most common ingredients in almost all CBD bath bombs. The provided quantities of the ingredients will make approximately six bath bombs.

  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2tablespoons of melted coconut oil (any oil works though we chose coconut oil to add extra moisture).
  • ½ cup citric acid (this causes bath bombs to fizz when mixed with sodium bicarbonate.)
  • ½ cup sea salt or Epsom salt
  • 1 cup sodium bicarbonate
  • ½ cup cornstarch.
  • 10-15 drops of organic essential oils, such as lavender or lemongrass, add extra relaxation and a good mood to your bath bomb. The quantity of the oils depends on the level of the fragrance of your bath bomb and the type of therapy you want, for example, a relaxing bath or energizing bath.
  • 0.3 grams of high-quality CBD isolate     
  • ●        A flair of your choice like dried flowers, glitters, or food coloring.

Tools Needed

  • A mold for your bath bomb                                                                                                                         
  • Two mixing bowls.

How to Make CBD Bath Bombs.

1. Mix cornstarch, citric acid, sodium bicarbonate, and salt in one of the mixing bowls to obtain a smooth mixture (these are all the dry ingredients)

2. Mix the essential oils, coconut oil, water, and CBD isolate in the second bowl (wet ingredients).

3. Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients in bits while stirring until mixed. The addition of the ingredients in bits prevents them from fizzing. After you pour all your liquid in, ensure no clumps by continuously whisking.

4. Upon completion, the mixture should be drier than moistened for easy clumping when packed. To test, you can hold some in your hand to see if it retains its shape when you lose your grip.

5. Quickly pack the mixture into molds of your choice to prevent it from drying out while firmly pressing so that the bombs are tightly packed.

6. Let the molded bath bomb sit for one hour.

7. Allow the bath bomb to air dry for at least 24 hours before removing it from the mold. It is considered ready for use; thus, making a CBD bath bomb will require a little bit of delayed satisfaction. You are required to constantly check the firmness of your birth bomb.

Why You Should Consider A CBD Bath Bomb.

Unless you have experienced a CBD bath bomb, you may think any bath bomb is okay, which is not the case. This is because the traditional bath bombs offer many benefits, such as soothing, clarifying your skin, and a drop of fragrance to your bath. Contrary, the CBD-infused bath bombs provide various additional benefits, making them a valuable addition to your skincare routine. CBD bath bombs effectively apply a powerful dose to the whole body without having to layer yourself in creams, unlike most topical CBD products. Also, with a CBD bath, you experience two benefits in one. You get a relaxing soak, and you enjoy the wide benefits. According to a study, the benefits of a CBD bath bomb include;

– Physical aches and pains are reduced

– Taking care of inflamed, irritated skin

– Relieving the pain of tension or tension headaches       

– Assisting with muscle recovery following workouts

-General body relaxation.

How to Utilize A CBD Bath Bomb

Using a CBD bath bomb is as easy as using any other bath bomb. First, you just run a bath, remove the bath bomb from any packaging and slip it into the water. Allow fizzing as you relax. It’s, however, important to keep in mind that CBD bath bombs require time. To make the bomb dissolve quicker, some people may move it around the tab creating a ripple effect. Others prefer to hold a bath bomb underwater. Once you hit the water, relaxing relax allows the skin to fully absorb the CBD just like any other ingredients you may have added, such as the essential oils. Giving the CBD enough time to be absorbed allows for maximum absorption and helps you get the most out of the CBD-infused bath bomb. A systemic dose combined with a topical application is such a nice way to experience the balancing effects of CBD.

Answering Whether There Are Better Alternatives to CBD Bath Bombs.

Though CBD Bath bombs are the highest standard of CBD soaks, other options are available for personal preference or cost concerns. For example, tiny sprigs that allow only a small amount each time and bath salts that are sprinkled into baths.

If you are a beginner, stick to a particular design that works for everyone by choosing a simple recipe. The best thing about homemade CBD bath bombs is that you control everything from the color, shape, and preference size. This depends on your desires and needs. If you’re experienced, it’s possible to explore all the shapes, colors, and designs you wish to make your CBD Bath bombs special.
