What are CBD bath bombs?

Have you always fancied a home spa? CBD bath bombs are your all-in-one solution that offers maximum relaxation and relief from physical stress, complemented by a colourful burst of aromatic bubbles.


If you've never seen a bath bomb before, they are small "bombs" that burst in your bath in a bright scene. They often contain essential oils and other active ingredients that offer a variety of benefits and completely relax and pamper the body.


How do CBD bath bombs work?

A unique combination of sodium bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate), citric acid, Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) and natural organic colours create the iconic emotion caused by bath bombs. Bath bombs contain additives such as essential oils, which also serve as aromatherapy and care products and interact directly with your skin. The mix of hot water, muscle-relaxing properties and the aroma of the bath bomb are close to a spa experience, but in the comfort of your own home and at a much cheaper price.


In CBD bath bombs, cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive cannabis component, is an additive incorporated into the product. They say CBD has remarkable healing properties that range from anxiolytic properties to relief of severe pain.


CBD is taken orally, smoked / vaped or applied topically, but bath bombs offer a new method of ingestion: open-pore absorption with the aid of the bath heat.


In this way, CBD enters the bloodstream faster than with local applications and penetrates the skin throughout the body, rather than just a small area.

These are some reasons to use CBD bath bombs.




  1. Spa type environment

With the right atmosphere, a CBD bath bomb can make a bath indifferent to a spa. Get the right lighting, play relaxing music and adjust the water to the right temperature and you’ll never want to get out.


However, this is only the beginning. As soon as CBD enters the bloodstream after a few minutes, the effects are stronger. You will experience incredible relaxation and perhaps a touch of visionary euphoria. The experience may even have spiritual nuances because of the meditative state of mind in which it is found. This mood created by the heat of the bath and the bath bomb itself and reinforced by the CBD.




  1. Epsom salt and CBD work together

Epsom salt has a remarkable property: it can eliminate harmful toxins from your body and restore balance. Epsom salt has been used for "salt detoxification" for over 400 years, which is believed to not only help eliminate toxins but also:


  • Weight / appetite control
  • Painful muscle relief
  • mood stabilization
  • Overall health improvement


As you can see, there is a significant overlap with CBD, promoted by its ability to stabilize appetite, relieve pain and improve mood. Epsom Salt sees a mutual benefit with the CBD from which you can benefit today.


  1. Relaxation

They say CBD is a powerful relaxation inducer and pain reliever. As they say, it kills stress, and it's no exaggeration. For many, CBD is more effective than prescription drugs such as benzodiazepines, including Xanax, in relieving anxiety and it is much healthier not to get addicted.


  1. Glow

When people talk about bath bombs, they often mention that they’re skin glows. This is because of the process of hot water, CBD and Epsom salt, which increases blood circulation and opens the pores, leading to a distinctive body glow.


Through the opening of the pores, the skin absorbs the properties in Epsom salt and CBD and essential oils in the skin. The radiant and noticeable difference in skin contrast after immersion in the water hit by a CBD bath bomb is a precursor to the benefits that you will feel in a few minutes: relaxation, muscle ache, and stress relief, and a better mood.




  1. Benefits of CBD - relieves body pain

CBD has long been promoted because of its ability to relieve pain and relieve inflammation. Although the mechanisms for this are still being studied, the reduction of inflammation is believed to result from immunomodulation.


This relieves the pain associated with it and is supplemented with additional pain relief caused by CBD, which many believe is more effective than opiates. The overall effect of a CBD bath bomb will induce its effect on:


  • Inflammation caused by injuries such as a mosquito and spider bites, ingrown toenails, and infections.
  • Arthritis pain
  • body tension
  • pain
  • cramps and muscle cramps



  1. Humidity

Humidity caused by the heat of the bath has two advantages: first, the warm mist has a positive effect on the throat and lungs, and second, humidity also acts as a means by which essential oils and CBD directly affect the body. This helps with aromatherapy.



  1. Skincare

Cannabis products have been shown to help with various skin conditions when applied to the skin:


  • Anti-ageing
  • wrinkle reduction
  • Antioxidant effect
  • eczema treatment
  • Psoriasis treatment
  • Treatment of acne and pimples



  1. Essential oils and CBD complement each other

When choosing your bath bomb you can choose from a variety of essential oils. Each comes with a different benefit and in combination with CBD (the "ultimate" alternative drug), an overlap can lead to a strong synergistic effect. Here is a list of the most common essential oils and their benefits:


  • Lavender: Combined with relaxation and serenity.
  • Mint - Powerful relief of nausea
  • Eucalyptus oil: Helps with breathing and immunity
  • Clove oil: Treats arthritis pain and is antimicrobial
  • Grapefruit - Supports metabolism and kills cellulite
  • Frankincense - Development of immunity, neuroprotective
  • Cypress: Improves blood circulation
  • Ginger - Helps with digestion and nausea


As you can see, the options are endless.


This opens the door to CBD bath bombs with almost unlimited experiments with different products - a fun activity in itself.


  1. You can enjoy ALL the benefits of CBD

Increased blood flow and the opening of the pores described above ensures that the CBD is quickly absorbed into the blood. This means you get the same benefits as taking CBD differently, e.g. These important advantages include:


  • Nausea relief
  • General pain relief.
  • Anti-epileptic properties
  • Relief from fear and stress
  • Treatment of sleep disorders
  • Better mood
  • neuroprotective properties


There are different CBD bath bombs, all with different effects.


How to make your own CBD bath bombs

It is often cheaper and offers more flexibility in making your own CBD bath bombs if you have CBD isolate. To make your own CBD bath bombs, you need the following ingredients and supplies:


  •  Baking powder 1 cup
  • ½ cup of citric acid
  • ½ cup of Epsom salt
  • 1 teaspoon of essential oil
  • 1 teaspoon of water
  • 10-50 mg of CBD Isolate
  • 3 teaspoons of olive oil
  • Colouring of your choice
  • Pot
  • Mold
  • 2 Bowls
  • Whisk

From there, the preparation steps of the mix are simple and it takes less than 20 minutes. First, you want to put all of the dry ingredients (like CBD Isolate) in 1 bowl and beat in a homogeneous mixture so that there are no lumps or inconsistencies.


Now for the fun part. Use the 2nd bowl to mix all of the liquid ingredients together. Here you can determine the essential oils, the aromas (optional) and the colours you want to use.  Experiment with different combinations until you find one you like. Remember that every essential oil has different advantages and these can be complemented by your chosen colours.


In the next step, we combine both mixtures. It's a slow process, so don't throw all of the liquid mixture in the dry bowl at once. Mix preferably one spoon at a time with constant stirring. Make sure there are no lumps. Once the mixture appears prepared, the colour to be selected is selected and what appears to be a damp, dusty and perfumed mixture.


Finally, put the material in the moulds. Pack the CBD bath bomb tightly and let it dry for a day or until it's done.


Enjoy your CBD bath bomb!
