The perfect bath bomb does exist, and we’re on a mission to help you find yours!
Anxiety isn’t new to us, especially now amid a global pandemic. So what are some ways in which you can relax and unwind? Cue the drumroll because we’re rolling around the baddest bath bombs! CBD bath bombs are the new-gen of unwinding technology you didn’t even know you needed in your life. CBD bath bombs are handy for people who want to relax but have a hard time doing so.
What are the Benefits of Bath Bombs?
Baths are a form of hydrotherapy that have many benefits for humans. The practice of hydrotherapy dates back centuries and has been practiced in countries such as Iceland that have naturally occurring hot springs. These baths have allowed humans through time to submerge their bodies into hot or cold water to reap benefits such as improving circulation, helping someone breathe more easily, and even relaxing muscles and other aches and pains. Since a regular bath is already beneficial for the human body, hemp bath bombs that use plants that help promote relaxation can be even more helpful.
Do CBD Bath Bombs Really Work?
Since baths are already beneficial for people, the added cannabidiol can provide an added bonus, such as restorative properties. What many people may not know is that the human body already has an endocannabinoid system. CBD and hemp can assist the body by regulating the preexisting system. In fact, hemp bath bombs can help modulate the body’s ‘flight or fight response’ that humans feel when they are stressed or anxious. Furthermore, the hormone cortisol, which controls our stress and our recovery from it, can also benefit from CBD.
Other benefits include anti-inflammatory properties.
The double impact of CBD bath bombs on our bodies goes to show how much time we should be spending soaking in our bathtubs! This is especially true when opting for a heated bath with CBD bath products. The heat from the water in the bath actually enhances the properties of the cannabidiol. Inflammation in the body can already be helped via aqua therapy. The warm water and weightlessness of our bodies in the bathtub can significantly reduce the pressure we may feel in our joints and muscles. With the addition of natural plant and mineral products added to the mix, our muscles are relaxed. At the same time, the expansion of blood vessels allows for a larger surface area available for absorption. The warm bath and steam usually assist in breathing, making this process beneficial for opening up airways.
How long should you soak in a CBD bath bomb bath?
The way to use a CBD bath bomb is the same as using an ordinary one. Fill up your bathtub with hot water, and once full, drop the bath bomb in. It should fizzle until it disappears completely. The bath bomb allows the CBD to be absorbed through your skin. While all bath bombs have different ingredients, the level of CBD in each will vary too. This means the time taken for results will vary too. Also, similar to using oral CBD products, the amount used and the time taken vary on external factors such as metabolism and body mass. However, it is generally accepted that at least thirty minutes of bath soaking is needed for the ingredients to take effect. The thirty minutes of CBD bath products will allow the ingredients to diffuse into your skin and take effect.
Sometimes people may wonder whether these products categorize as THC bath bombs. However, the THC levels in these products fall below 0.3%. Unfortunately for some, this means that CBD bath bombs cannot and will not give you the notorious marijuana high.

Make Your Own!
While there are plenty of bath bombs available in the market, sometimes you just want to make your own. Here’s a simple CBD bath bomb recipe for you to try at home!
- 1 cup baking soda
- ½ cup citric acid
- ½ cup Epsom salt
- ½ cup cornstarch
- 1 tsp water
- 2 tablespoons of your oil of choice (we prefer coconut or olive oil)
- Your favorite CBD tincture (we suggest KeyLife’s range!)
- Aromatherapy oils (approximately 8 drops in total)
- Bath bomb molds
How to make your bath bombs:
- Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix.
- Add the citric acid and mix thoroughly until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, combine the oil, CBD tincture, aromatherapy oil, and water.
- Slowly mix the liquid mixture into the dry. It will fizz if you add too much of the liquid mixture too fast, so move slowly in this step.
- Once mixed, put the bath bombs in the molds and leave for approximately one hour.
- After an hour, remove the bombs from the molds and leave them to dry thoroughly overnight.
Making bath bombs at home isn’t just fun; you can make them to suit your own skin and needs. Generally, buying a bath bomb is way more manageable, but sometimes, your inner DIY kicks in, and you want to make something of your own!
In Places Where Marijuana is Legal…
You may be looking for more than CBD, and if you are in a place where marijuana is legal, you may be in luck. THC bath bombs are available for those looking to feel a high from the bath bombs. The bath bombs contain the same ingredients as CBD ones, except they will literally give you a high. From reviews of THC bath bombs, those who have used them described a euphoric sensation along with total body relaxation. The potency of the bath bombs and bath salts depends, so we would advise you to make sure you know all the details before soaking in THC!
