Bath Bombs are so relaxing and a great way to give yourself some self-love. What if you could not only soothe your mind and soak away aches and pains with natural CBD without the high cost of trendy CBD bath bombs? We have that easy DIY for you!
How do CBD Bath bombs make you feel better?
CBD soothes pain and reduces inflammation. Used topically, it can also settle skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema.
CBD works with the endocannabinoid system and desensitizes pain receptors in the body, so a nice long soak in the bath increases your natural cannabinoids in your body to soothe the pain.
The root of almost any problem is inflammation. Under the epidermis layer of blotchy skin lies inflammation at the scene of the crime. For those who have aches in their joints, the pain they feel is an inflammatory response. Even a mental condition like stress is inflammation-related. When we have inflammation in our system, these foreign microorganisms let off toxic vapors that trigger the release of cortisol, our stress hormone.
We have more information about CBD, and it’s uses here.
For this DIY project, we recommend using Raw CBD Oil in 450mg. The raw oil isn’t stripped down, it is the best of the plant, full of natural fats and antioxidants. The phytocannabinoid concentration is higher and rich in nutrients. There are also no additives, and the terpenes are left intact. It is also non-psychoactive so you won’t get high.
Raw is always better! The synergy between the cannabinoids and terpenoids found in whole plant raw extracts create the wanted “Entourage Effect” that has been shown to maintain homeostasis in the body and works more efficiently.
Wherever you get your CBD oil, always make sure you know the quality of your oil. Look at the test results for each batch, check to make sure the product has been tested for yeast, mold, E. coli, and coliforms. Check the third party testing results and know where the CBD is sourced from.
For this project, you should use a low dose of CBD and build up your tolerance gradually. We recommend just a few drops – 10mg to start. A little goes a long way!
Why Rose Geranium oil?
Rose geranium essential oil has a marked effect as a diuretic, anti-inflammatory and helps promote healing, particularly of scars and wounds. Rose geranium essential oil also promotes healthy skin, helps relieve depression and anxiety and uplifts the spirit to reduce stress.
