    How to Make CBD Bath Bombs

    Wondering how to make CBD bath Bombs? This article contains helpful guidelines for getting started with DIY CBD bath bombs.

    The introduction of CBD bath bombs was a creative response to the diverse user needs in the cannabis industry. Although research on the efficacy of CBD in topical applications is limited, anecdotal research claims that combining CBD with calming essential oils may have remarkable effects on the skin. The cannabis-based bath bombs are ideal for users who enjoy relaxing by soaking in water. They vary in hue, form, and fragrance, much like ordinary bath bombs. Consequently, you will find a bath bomb that suits your needs. When you make your bath bombs, you decide on flavor, hue, form, and concentration. 

    CBD Bath Bombs

    CBD bath bombs resemble ordinary bath bombs; they are used by dissolving into warm baths before soaking to get the therapeutic effects of Cannabidiol. According to Davis (2020), topical application techniques, such as bath bombs, enable CBD to reach the inner layers of skin with high cannabinoid receptors; the CBD does not enter the circulatory system. CBD begins to dispense anti-inflammatory effects, which alleviate pain and inflammation. The cannabis derivative induces calmness and reduces tension. Compounds like terpenes found in bath bombs enhance mood and increase the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD. Some bath bombs are scented to help you relax, while others contain citrus fruit extracts to help you feel revitalized. Also, the bath bombs could contain properties effective for effective moisturizing skin; they include coconut oil, hemp seed oil, and shea butter. Hot baths, open pores, and clear sinuses aid in respiratory equilibrium. After a long, stressful day, nothing beats unwinding with a long, hot bath in the CBD bath bombs.

    Making CBD bath bombs

    You will need a few ingredients to create CBD bath bombs. The ingredients for CBD bath bombs are:

    • baking soda
    • Corn flour
    • Citric acid
    • Epsom salts
    • Water
    • coconut oil
    • CBD oil


    • Baking soda, Epsom salt, corn starch, and citric acid are blended in a medium-sized mixing basin.
    • Use a saucepan and low heat to melt the coconut oil on a stovetop.
    • Combine coconut with water, essential oils, and CBD oil. Your preferred dosage determines the appropriate CBD oil dose. The liquid mixture should be added to the dry ingredients by carefully moving the bombs to avoid foaming up the water; decrease the rate you pour the liquid if it begins to foam. The product should hold together. You can add some water if it dries up.
    • Get a bath bomb mold in two halves and fill them with ingredients before pressing them together.
    • Remove the mold's upper half and let the bottom half air dry for a while. When finished, the mold may be inverted, and the CBD bath bomb released entirely.
    • Let the bomb dry overnight.

    After the CBD bath bomb has dried, one may use it in a warm bath. Please keep it away from heat and moisture to extend its shelf-life and keep it from cracking. According to Conwell &Fichter (2022), the time required to make CBD bath bombs will vary based on your recipe and the quantity you intend to produce; there may be delays between adding an ingredient and moving on to the next step in the process. Observe the specified time interval to get the best DIY bath bombs.

    Frequently asked Questions on CBD bath Bombs

    What Is the Best Way to Enjoy a CBD Bath Bomb?

    There is no secret to enjoying a CBD bath bomb. It works well when put into a bathtub with warm water. Some users prefer to wait to drop the bombs into the tub before soaking, while others enter the water while it is fizzing to enjoy the explosion. According to Angermann et al. (2022), holding a bath bomb under water or spreading it about the tub to generate ripples might speed up the dissolving process. 

    When using a CBD Bath Bomb, How Long Should I Soak?

    The duration of soaking in the bath bombs depends on the user's preference. However, you should spend 20 to 30 minutes in the tub to get the most out of the CBD. According to Tzu (2023), one should avoid soaking in the tub for too long to avoid skin drying out; an extremely hot bath can leave you feeling dizzy. In most cases, a 30-minute limit soak is ideal. If your fingers begin to pinch back, it is time to get out of the tub.


    Mistakes and blunders are to be expected while learning anything new for the first time. After all, scientific tests are often conducted on very small sample sizes to gauge the significance of the findings. Try finding a recipe for CBD bath bombs that calls for very little of the active ingredient. In this manner, you will only waste a little material if you blunder along the road. Stay away from customization and extraneous information in your first DIY; the errors become more likely when procedures need to be clearer. After mastering the procedure, you may produce as many CBD bath bombs as you want. You can also experiment with colors, shapes, and scents. CBD bath bombs are generally safe and tolerable in the body; they may have some negative effects when used incorrectly.
