CBD Topicals are becoming increasingly popular. After all, the skin is the largest organ of the body. Our skin has the ability to both absorb and detoxify. This is why bath bombs are a perfect way to relax and detox. If you are buying your bath bombs, look for a bath bomb with 50mg or more of CBD and preferable one made with organic ingredients. Organic essential oils are very important as you can be assured that there are no pesticides in organic oils.
If you prefer to make your own CBD bath bombs we have created a step by step recipe. You can add any natural ingredients to a bath bomb. They make ideal gifts and can be custom made for your friends and family.
The ingredients are easy to find online. Should you want to buy premade CBD bath bombs we recommend Hempstrax bath bombs. They can be purchased by clicking here.
CBD Bath Bomb Recipe Ingredients and Materials
- 50 – 100mg of Hempstrax CBD Isolate per bath bomb
(You can also use Hempstrax CBG Isolate) To see information on CBG click here.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup Epsom salt
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 3/4 tsp. water
- 2 tsp Organic essential oils (lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree, lemon verbena and rose are all popular for the bath)
- 2 tsp oil (sweet almond, coconut, olive or even baby oil)
- A mold of your choice, such as regular or mini-muffin tins, candy pans or round plastic molds specifically for bath bombs
- Optional: Dried flowers or herbs. You can use glitter or any decorations including cake decorations
- A few drops of food coloring (optional)
Making your CBD Bath Bombs:
Step 1: With the exception of the citric acid, mix all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl including the CBD Isolate.
Step 2: Pour all of the liquid ingredients in a jar or a protein shake maker with a top. Close the jar and shake it vigorously.
Step 3: Pour the liquid mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and use your hands to combine it together. At this point, add the citric acid. You’ll probably notice a slight fizzing reaction because of the citric acid. This is totally normal.
The mixture should be a bit crumbly (similar to the consistency of wet beach sand). Whatever you do, don’t add any liquid or the bath bomb will fizz prematurely and be ruined.
Step 4: Mash the mixture into your chosen molds very tightly. You may slightly overfill the molds and use a spoon or glass to press the mixture in as tightly as possible. Immediately loosen the bombs from their molds onto wax paper and let them dry overnight.
Step 5: Give the bath bombs a day or two to completely dry before using them or wrapping them up as gifts.
Step 6: Drop one in the bathtub, enjoy the burst of CBD and fizz, and inhale the released aromas from the essential oils. The skin is the largest organ of the body. Your homemade bath bomb along with the CBD will be absorbed into the skin and will start to detox the body.
CBD bath bombs can be used daily. You can also create smaller bath bombs to be used as a foot soak. The CBD will help alleviate pain and muscle tension and will leave you thoroughly relaxed and rejuvenated.
