Whether you enjoy taking a bath to relax your mind, soothe tight muscles, promote a good night’s sleep or just to wash, you know the healing power of a good soak in a bathtub. To help make your bath time even more soothing, you can now get CBD infused bath bombs and bath oils instead of the traditional products you typically use. Using a CBD bath bomb can be a great way to experience the full topical benefits of CBD oil, while also practising self-care and having an enjoyable experience. Here are five reasons why CBD bath soaks should become a part of your daily wellness regime.
Easy To Use
A CBD bath bomb is super easy to use and it’s friendly to the environment too, as they don’t need much packaging, if any. Unlike tinctures or oils, you don’t need to use a dropper or measure of a dosage. Just simply put the bomb in the tub and wait for the bomb to do its colourful and aromatic magic and fully dissolve.
What is great about CBD bath bombs is that you can pick the different strength of the bomb, which means that you can choose the received CBD dosage. Typically bath bombs come with 50 to 100 mg concentration of CBD oil, but you can also start with a minimum amount of around 25 mg, if you like. Additionally, CBD bath bombs will include one of three main types of CBD extract, which are full-spectrum, broad-spectrum or CBD isolate, allowing you to find the suitable product for your particular needs.
Create an At-Home Spa Environment
To provide an all-natural and low-cost at-home spa experience, you need to get the lighting right. Light a few candles, turn on some calming music and have your water at the right temperature; then don’t forget to bring a CBD bath bomb (or bath oil) to take your relaxing ritual to the next level. Hit the tub, let your skin slowly absorb the cannabinoids and immerse yourself in a calming, soothing and mood-boosting bathing experience. CBD absorbed topically can act as an anti-inflammatory and skin soother, which is great for many skin conditions. It may also help with pain, although everyone is different. If you are looking for help with anxiety, CBD would need to be taken orally. However, a warm aromatherapy bath is always beneficial to calming your mind, body and soul, and creating an undeniable ambience of pleasure.
All Ingredients Can Work Together
Typically, a CBD bath bomb would contain a unique blend of baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salt, cornstarch, CBD oil, essential oils and herbs intended to support deep body relaxation. Epsom salt is known to help draw out harmful toxins from the body, improve mood, relax and soothe sore muscles due to the magnesium’s absorption through the skin. Since CBD can offer similar soothing skin and muscle benefits, the combination of these two components, can be quite powerful.
Provide Whole Body Relief
Compared to taking CBD capsules or a few drops of CBD tincture orally, letting the active components absorb topically through the skin is better for those anti-inflammatory skin benefits; and while different topicals like CBD cream, balm or salve might be ideal for those who need localised relief, adding CBD to a bath tub will expose your entire body to it, leading to more wide-spread effects. As CBD in the bath creates full-body coverage, it can offer great relief, whether that’s reducing tension, soothing muscle soreness and aches, keeping your skin hydrated, supporting post-workout recovery or promoting a good night’s sleep.
