How to Make CBD Bath Bombs

What's more relaxing than a warm bath at the end of a hard day? One with a homemade CBD bath bomb!

Nothing is more pampering than running a bath and using your CBD-infused bath bomb made by your very hands. In this blog post, we'll look at the potential benefits of CBD bath bombs and share our favorite way of making them for an awesome bath experience!

What is a Bath Bomb?

A bath bomb is a small ball or differently shaped product designed to be added to the bath. It has a fizzing agent that bubbles once it comes into contact with water.

Bath bombs also add essential oils or fragrances to your bath, filling the water with scents like fruit, lavender, or floral. The skin conditioning agent is usually a natural ingredient like shea butter or coconut oil, which will leave your skin feeling soft and fresh. Some bath bombs also have food coloring to fill your tub with your favorite color.

You run your bath as usual, but instead of using body soap or foam, you add the bath bomb and enjoy the soothing, properties during your well-deserved soak!

Uses of CBD Bath Bombs


A bubble bath is relaxing, but one with a CBD bath bomb added is even more so! Whether you've been hard at work, stressed, or just need to decompress, don't you think it's time to treat yourself?

Skin Health

CBD has the potential to help with skin wellness and may be able to help with some skin disorders. While more research is needed, early clinical trials show that CBD, other cannabinoids, and terpenes interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) to help our receptors improve overall skin health*.

Quick Absorption

Warm water and Epsom salt work together to open your pores and increase blood flow, facilitating quicker absorption of CBD into the bloodstream.

Recovery From Muscle Aches

Are you suffering from chronic or acute pain in the muscles or joints? Warm water will increase blood flow, essential for helping your aching muscles and joints heal. CBD may also decrease recovery time from muscle aches.

How to Make CBD Bath Bombs

Ready to make your DIY CBD bath bomb? Here's our favorite CBD bath bomb recipe!

Bath Bomb Ingredients Needed

  • High-quality CBD oil (1 dropper full)
  • Bath bomb molds (if you don't have these, a silicone ice tray will work)
  • Two large mixing bowls
  • 1 cup Epsom salt
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ½ cup citric acid
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 1.5 teaspoons water
  • Coconut oil or almond oil
  • Essential oil (optional, but a nice-to-have!)
  • Plastic gloves

Step 1: Mix Base Ingredients

Place the Epsom salt, baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch into the mixing bowl.

Step 2: Mix Water and Oils

In the other bowl, mix the water, coconut oil, CBD oil, and any essential oils you want to use.

Step 3: Mix Everything Together

Mix the wet and dry ingredients in a large bowl until the texture is consistent. Don't mix too aggressively; you might trigger a chemical reaction.

Step 4: Add Mixture to Bath Bomb Molds

With the plastic gloves on, fill your bath bomb molds or silicone ice tray with the mixture. Place them carefully but quickly so the mixture doesn't dry out prematurely.

Step 5: Let Dry for 24 Hours

Allow the bath bombs to dry out completely at room temperature. Wait at least 24 hours before using. Once thoroughly dried, they are ready to use with your next bubble bath!
