Sure, taking CBD for stress relief is becoming more and more common. But fewer people stop to enjoy a relaxing bath and some “me time.” Are you ready to make some healthy DIY CBD oil bath bombs that don’t contain cornstarch or other ingredients that aren’t awesome for your body? We’ve got the best CBD bath bomb recipe for you right here. Just follow the instructions, and you’ll be melting your troubles away in no time.
Making CBD Bath Bombs Without Harmful Ingredients
Bath bombs are everywhere nowadays — at the grocery store, the mall, and maybe even convenience stores. The trouble with many of these bath bombs is they are full of ingredients that you don’t want on your body. Your skin is the largest organ and is going to be absorbing what you’re offering to it in a bath, so it’s best to put your best ingredients forward when aiming for a healthy, relaxing bath bomb bath.
What are some ingredients you may want to avoid in your CBD bath bomb recipe?
– Synthetic fragrances or perfumes
– Artificial dyes and colorants
Some people may not realize it, but bath bombs that contain fragrances and dyes, even essential oils, can disrupt pH and cause skin irritation. It’s best to keep things as safe as possible so that you can enjoy your bath bombs worry-free — that’s what they’re all about anyway!
How To Make CBD Bath Bombs
Now that you know a little more about what to look for in your bath bomb, it’s time to create some with this CBD bath bomb recipe that doesn’t contain any harmful ingredients. Regardless, it’s always wise to do a skin test to make sure your body is a fan of the ingredients. If you experience irritation, you can have safer, more relaxing baths by rinsing off afterward, minimizing the time in the bath, or treating yourself to bath bombs less often.
We hope you enjoy it. First things first…
Gather your ingredients
For your CBD-infused bath bomb recipe, you’ll need:
– A few drops of premium CBD oil – you can get your broad-spectrum, organically grown CBD tincture right here.
– 2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil (raw and unrefined, ideally)
– ½ cup of Epsom salt — i.e., magnesium sulfate
– 1 cup baking soda
– ½ cup citric acid
Combine all of your dry ingredients in a mixing bowl
Simple enough. Mix them well.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients
Slowly start to add your wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. It may start to fizz a little. That’s ok. It’s part of the process.
Start to create the shape for your CBD bath bomb recipe
Use your hands to start forming little balls — your DIY CBD oil bath bomb. Just pretend it’s like dough, and shape it however you’d like.
Tuck your DIY CBD oil bath bomb into a muffin tin
Once you’ve created the ball, set it inside a muffin tin and press it in there. You don’t want to put too much of your concoction into the tin because it’s going to expand. Yay science!
Allow it to dry
Allow your CBD bath bomb to dry for around 3 hours in a well-ventilated area. Sometimes it’s best to let them dry overnight just to be safe.
To prevent soggy DIY CBD bath bombs, pop them out of the tin and into an airtight container.
Now you know how to make CBD bath bombs!
It’s quite simple to complete your CBD bath bomb recipe by gathering the healthiest, highest-quality ingredients possible. Why do the ingredients matter? Like we said earlier, your skin is the largest organ. And because it’s so porous, soaking in everything on and around it like a sponge, the ingredients in your personal care products matter a whole lot. Many conventional bath bombs are loaded with toxic chemicals that no one can pronounce, so we hope you enjoy this clean twist.
What About Essential Oils?
Essential oils are not created equally, and many come with the same risks of crummy ingredients. If you choose to add essential oils to your CBD bath bomb recipe, it’s best to make sure you’re selecting a high-quality and safe oil for how you intend to use it. One option that appears to be safe and potentially beneficial for a variety of uses is a calming lavender oil from a trusted brand.
If you want to try out a CBD bath bomb with lavender oil, just add around 10-15 drops to your mixture. If you want to try out lavender oil in your bath before adding it to your CBD mixture, you can always pop a bath bomb into the tub and just add the lavender oil drops directly to the water.
