The Secret Bath Bomb Recipe

DIY Bath Bombs

Hey guys, we’ve been getting a lot of requests for a DIY bath bomb, so this week we’re going to get together and make some. We tried out a bunch of different recipes today to bring you the best one, and we’re going to show you the one that works best and a cool trick to make them fun for the kids as well.

This recipe does not include CBD, although you can add CBD isolate at any time during the recipe. 

For this blog post we consulted Nicole, a stay at home mom passionate about CBD and making beautiful things for her family on a budget.

So here’s what you’re going to need to get started:

Baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, epsom salt, soap or food coloring, a plastic mold, castor oil, and an essential oil and/or CBD isolate.

First, we’re going to mix our dry ingredients. Use a half a cup of baking soda, and a quarter cup of Epsom salt, which sooths muscles and softens skin.

Put in a quarter cup of cornstarch, and that helps hold everything together. Finally, a quarter cup of citric acid. This is the most important ingredient, because it reacts with the baking soda to create the fit. Now we’re going to give this a quick whisk and mix our wet ingredients.

Start with three teaspoons of castor oil. I love using castor oil and beauty products because of all its therapeutic properties. It’s non-comedogenic, it’s a natural anti-inflammatory, and it’s super hydrating. Next, we’re going to add one tablespoon of our essential oil. This is really just for scent, so you can use whatever you like.

Next, add the soap coloring. You can also use regular food coloring. Only put in a few drops. Finally, a tablespoon of water and mix.

Now we’re going to mix everything together. You want to add the liquid very slowly so that it doesn’t activate the solution, then start whisking.

You’ll notice it starts to clump together. Continue whisking until you have a thick, even, consistency. Your kids will have fun helping you mix these up as well. Mixture is done. Admire the color. It looks so refreshing. And now we’re going to fill our mold. I’m using an old plastic Christmas ornament, but you could also use a soap mold, or even an easter egg, packing them really tightly.

Put the two sides together and you want to hear your container snap. Let them dry overnight. If you want to use it right away, you can pop them in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Open it up, and just like that, we have our bath bomb. They make great gifts, and now for the fun part, testing them out.

Regular bath bombs are wonderful in the bath, but if you really want to kick it up a notch and get a full-body cannabinoid experience, use a CBD bath bomb. These really take relaxation to the next level.

Sativa bath bombs are great, and so are Kush Queen bath bombs.

This makes me want to take a bath! Thanks for the great suggestion on the bath bombs. These were so much fun to make, and I think they turned out really cool. Keep the ideas coming!
