Brought to you by Your CBD Store Alexandria We've all heard about the benefits of CBD. It treats a wide range of conditions as an alternative to traditional medications and pharmaceuticals, encouraging users to embrace a healthier lifestyle as they explore various CBD products. Interestingly enough, CBD has even become a popular ingredient in bath bombs, which means that those wonderful little orbs of fizzy relaxation are about to take stress relief to whole new levels. Plunk one into a hot bath, and you’ll get to listen to it fizz before you sink down and indulge yourself in all the skin-softening properties it releases. The CBD that releases from these specialty bath bombs soothes both body and mind. They may even help facilitate better and quicker sleep.
All that mood stabilization and improved sleep quality is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to CBD. Fun fact: It’s also good for your skin because it helps combat damage from free radicals. Because of that, CBD is being infused into skincare products including joint and muscle creams, face masks, and facial serums. While CBD bombs make skin smoother and softer by penetrating the skin’s outermost layers, it is safe for individuals using blood thinners because it does not actually enter the bloodstream.
So, where can you find your own CBD bath bombs? Simple! We're going to make them together. The best part: You already own most of the supplies we need... and what you don't have can easily be found at your local Your CBD Store. Ready for a little DIY action? Bombs away!
CBD bath bomb recipe
Makes: One bath bomb
Prep time: 15 minutes
Set time: Overnight
for each bath bomb, you’ll need:
1 cup of baking soda
1/8 cup of cornstarch
1/8 cup of Epsom salts
1/2 cup of citric acid
1 tablespoon of your preferred CBD hemp extract oil
1 teaspoon of your favorite essential oil
1 teaspoon of water
1 large mixing bowl
1 small bowl
1 bath bomb mold / ice cube tray
Step 1: Combine baking soda, cornstarch, Epsom salts and citric acid in a big mixing bowl.
Step 2: If you want to add a pop of color to your bath bomb, we recommend natural ingredients such as matcha powder or beet powder instead of artificial food coloring. You can add these powders to the other dry ingredients. Start with 1/4 teaspoon (a little goes a long way).
Step 3: In a smaller bowl, combine the CBD hemp extract oil, your preferred essential oil(s) and water. (We recommend using full-spectrum CBD oil.)
Step 4: Slowly incorporate your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients with a whisk. There's a fine line between taking your time to make sure you don't make your mixture too wet, and working quickly so that your mixture does not dry out before it is put placed in the molds.
You can also make your bath bombs extra special by adding flower petals or dried herbs to your mixture before putting it into the mold. We love using dried rose petals for anxiety relief and dried lavender for a great night's sleep.
Step 5: Fill two sides of a spherical mold with the mixture, packing it tightly so it sets well and then press the mold closed. Pack it hard into the molds and let it dry fully before removing or touching it.
Step 6: Let the mixture set overnight and then carefully pop the bath bomb out of the mold. Leave to set for 72 hours to be safe.
Step 7: Toss your bath bomb in the tub, soak, relax and enjoy!
