DIY CBD Bath Bomb Recipe
To make your own CBD bath bombs, you'll need to purchase bath bomb molds. These can be metal, plastic, or silicone. Most of the ingredients for CBD bath bombs can be found online or in a natural food store or grocery store. Here is what you will need:
- Bath Bomb Molds
- ½ cup (4 oz) Baking Soda
- ¼ cup (2 oz) Cornstarch
- ¼ cup (2 oz) Citric Acid
- ¼ cup (2 oz) Epsom Salts (unscented)
- 1-½ teaspoons Water (plus more as needed)
- 1 teaspoon Essential Oil
- ¼ teaspoon Coconut Oil
- 25 mg Plain Jane CBD Isolate
- Optional: up to 3 drops of food coloring
The first step to making DIY CBD bath bombs is to combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk them together so they are evenly mixed. Next, use a shot glass to combine the wet ingredients. Be sure to mix these very slowly! If the mixture starts to fizz at any time you are going too fast!
Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients very slowly. You want the CBD bath bomb mixture to have the texture of wet sand. Again, if it begins to fizz you are mixing it too fast and need to slow down. When you squeeze the mixture together it should stick. You may need to add a little more water if it is too dry and not sticky enough.
To fill the CBD bath bomb molds, fill each half of the mold, then add a little extra on top to ensure they stick together. Press the bath bomb mold together firmly and hold it with pressure for a few seconds. Once the CBD bath bomb is pressed, you can remove one side of the mold. Leave it half-open with the mold-side-down and allow it to air dry for at least 20 minutes.
Once dried, gently twist out the DIY CBD bath bomb. Let it dry completely overnight so it becomes completely firm. When you are ready to use, simply drop it in your bath and enjoy! This recipe makes just one DIY CBD bath bomb, so you may want to scale it up based on how many molds you have.
DIY CBD Sugar Scrub Recipe
If you are looking for something for your shower, a DIY CBD Sugar Scrub is a great alternative to a CBD bath bomb. The trick to this recipe is using high-quality ingredients. You'll be disappointed if you substitute regular raw honey for Manuka honey. Here is what you will need:
- 0.5g Plain Jane CBD Isolate
- 2 tablespoons Avocado Oil
- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
- ½ cup Manuka Honey
- 1 cup Organic Brown Sugar (packed)
- 2 tablespoons Orange Zest
- 2-5 drops Essential Oil (lavender or peppermint recommended)
Making CBD Sugar Scrub is much easier than making CBD bath bombs. The grainy texture is wonderful for exfoliating, and the oils help moisturize and rejuvenate skin. To start, whisk together the CBD isolate, avocado oil, and olive oil. Next, whisk in the Manuka Honey. Finally, stir in the brown sugar, orange zest, and essential oil. You can store CBD sugar scrub in a mason jar (or plastic jar that won't break in the bath). Simply scrub it on warm wet skin and massage it in, then wash off thoroughly. This recipe makes about 1 cup of CBD sugar scrub.
DIY CBD Foot Soak Recipe
This DIY CBD Foot Soak is a great CBD recipe if you are short on time and need a special treat to relax. CBD is a great addition to your foot soak because it has antimicrobial properties that can help get odor-causing foot bacteria and fungi under control while encouraging relaxation. Here is what you'll need:
- 1 cup Epsom Salts (unscented)
- 2 tablespoons Plain Jane Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
- 6 drops Tea Tree Oil
- 6 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
For this ultra-easy DIY CBD recipe all you need to do is combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. This makes enough for four soaks so you can store the extra in a mason jar. When you are ready for a soak, fill your foot soak tub with warm water and add ¼ cup of the CBD foot soak. You can swish it with your feet to help it dissolve and then relax and enjoy!
DIY CBD Bath Salts
Here's one last DIY CBD recipe for relaxation that you can assemble quickly if you don't have time to make CBD bath bombs. This CBD bath salt recipe makes enough for one bath. Here's what you need:
- 2 cups Epsom Salts (unscented)
- 20mg Plain Jane CBD Isolate
- 7 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- Optional: 2 drops Chamomile, Rose, or Geranium Essential Oil
All you need to do for this recipe is mix all of the ingredients together until they are combined. You may want to pre-dissolve the CBD isolate in a couple drops of oil to make sure it dissolves since CBD isolate is not water soluble on its own. Once mixed, you can add it to your bath and enjoy!
