Sometimes after a busy week you need some offline time for self-reflection, to ground yourself or just to de-stress. There is nothing better than turning your bathroom or bedroom into your own wellness resort. It goes without saying that CBD fits perfectly in this setting. Think of self-care rituals such as a massage with oil mixed with CBD, fill your bath with hemp milk, surround yourself with cannabis-scented candles and drink a cup of cannabis tea. To help you get started, we have made a how-to list for putting together a delicious CBD bomb for the bath. Bath bombs are an effective (and certainly not a nasty) way to enjoy the benefits of CBD. Check the recipe below and enjoy like a green goddess in your wellness palace!
Zen with CBD bath bombs
The ingredients are sufficient for two bath bombs with 100mg CBD each.
- 118 ml baking soda
- 60 ml citric acid
- 60 ml cornstarch
- 60ml Epsom Salt
- 1 teaspoon of water
- 5-10 drops of essential oil
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- Food coloring (optional)
- 200mg CBD (store-bought CBD bath bombs usually contain 100mg each)
What you need:
- A mixing bowl
- a round mold that you can use the bath bombs with shape
Combine the dry ingredients (baking powder, cornstarch, citric acid, and salt) in a bowl and mix until all lumps are gone. Melt the coconut oil briefly on the stove or in a microwave so that it becomes liquid. Then mix the melted coconut oil with the other liquid ingredients. Beat the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients until it starts to foam. The mixture should be just moist enough to form a ball in your hand. If it's a little too dry, add a little more water.
Fill each side of the molds with mixture so that they overflow slightly. Then press the two sides of the mold together. Carefully remove the top half of the mold and allow the bath bomb to dry out a bit, sitting in the bottom half of the mold. Once the ball has dried a bit, you can also remove the other half of the mold. Let the bath bombs dry overnight. Keep them in a dry place until it's time for your me-time moment.
You simply use the CBD bath bomb like a normal bath ball. Let a warm bath come to a temperature that you like. When the bath is full, drop the CBD bubble bath into the bath. Lay down and relax. To fully enjoy the effects, we recommend that you stay in the bath for at least 25 minutes. No problem, right?
