How to use a CBD Bath Bomb to Relax

There are countless ways to use CBD. Nowadays, CBD comes in the form of tinctures, oils, edibles, beverages, gummies, topical treatments, and more. One of the more exciting, new ways to use CBD is in the form of a CBD bath bomb. But how do you use a CBD bath bomb? 

Here’s what you need to know about using CBD bath bombs for skincare or relaxation.

Why Use a CBD Bath Bomb

CBD bath bombs can be bought from certain stores, both online and brick-and-mortar shops. You could also make your own bath bomb and add CBD to it if you have CBD oil.

CBD can soak into the skin, which is full of endocannabinoid receptors. Every human has endocannabinoid receptors throughout their body, including in the skin. Cannabinoids - that is, the chemicals in cannabis - such as CBD interact with our endocannabinoid receptors.

Our endocannabinoid system affects many aspects of our bodies, from our cardiovascular system to our brain to our digestive system and beyond.Because CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, it seems to calm irritated skin. Some research suggests that CBD could soothe skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and even psoriasis, which is why so many people are using CBD-infused skincare products. Plus, many people use CBD to manage anxiety and de-stress - and there’s no better way to do that than by relaxing in a fragrant, deliciously warm bathtub.

How to Use a CBD Bath Bomb

Buy a bath bomb that suits your needs. Before you use a CBD bath bomb, make sure you choose one that suits your goals. If you want to soothe irritated skin, go for one with all-natural, non-irritating ingredients. If your skin is dry, go for one with coconut oil or jojoba oil. If you’re aiming to relax, consider using a CBD bath bomb infused with lavender or other soothing fragrance.

Set the mood. Once you’ve set aside time to have a good soak, make sure your bathroom is extra relaxing. Set candles, play music, and make sure you have a soft towel and cozy pajamas to wear afterward.

Fill your tub and throw it in. Bath bombs fizz in any amount of water, so you could fill it to the brim or keep the water level low depending on your preference. Some bath bombs are designed to look like cool, colorful explosions, so you might want to watch it fizz and get in once it’s finished, but you’re welcome to jump in whenever you’d like.

Soak for at least 20 minutes, preferably longer. Take the time to scrub your nails, use a hair and face mask, and unwind. Listen to music or a podcast, read a book, or take the time to quiet your mind and meditate.

CBD bath bombs are becoming increasingly popular, especially among beauty enthusiasts and the natural healthcare community. Once you know how to use CBD bath bombs, they can be a great way to relax and to incorporate CBD into your skincare routine.
