For one, you’ll feel more relaxed and enjoy softer skin free from dryness. All because each component found in a CBD bath bomb works together to create an overall gentle and soothing experience.
For a heightened feeling, infuse some organic ingredients like essential oils. They positively affect your mental and physical well-being. And also curb skin irritation from the added chemicals found in other products.
So if you’re looking for a way to uplevel your self-care routine, using a DIY CBD Bath Bomb is worth considering.

How To Make Your Own Bath Bombs
Mix the Dry Ingredients: Baking Soda, Citric Acid, Epsom Salt
It’s time to mix the dry ingredients!
Before you start, you must gather the following items: baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salt, and your favorite essential oils.
To make sure the bath bombs hold their shape when dry, you must measure out the exact amounts of each ingredient.
Mix your dry ingredients in a large bowl – baking soda, citric acid, and Epsom salt – in a ratio of 2:1:1. So if you’re using 2 cups baking soda, you’ll also need 1 cup citric acid and 1 cup Epsom salt.
Add Wet Ingredients: CBD Oil, Coconut Oil, Essential Oils
Now, add wet ingredients to your CBD bath bomb mixture. Start by adding 1 tablespoon of CBD oil and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
Both will help give your bath bomb moisture while they dissolve in the water, making the experience more enjoyable.
Once these are all mixed, it’s time to add your favorite essential oils! The beauty of this project is that there is no wrong way to do it. Simply add as much or as little essential oil as you’d like.
Don’t add too much—5-10 drops per teaspoon should be enough for a lovely scent, but don’t be afraid to experiment!
You can add other natural ingredients, such as dried herbs or oatmeal, for extra skin-soothing benefits.
Once you’ve added the wet ingredients, use your hands (like when making a snowman) to mix the dry mixture until it’s evenly distributed and has a consistent texture.
Mold and Pack the CBD Bath Bomb Mixture
Now you’re ready to mold and pack your CBD bath bomb mixture. You may use any container or mold, such as a silicone mold or muffin tin! You’ll want to ensure it’s lightly oiled beforehand so the finished product will quickly release from the mold.
Once you’ve added your molds, it’s time to pack in your CBD bath bomb mixture. To do this, use a spoon or other tool to press the mixture into the mold firmly.
Ensure all corners and crevices are filled in with no air pockets remaining. You also want the combination to be evenly packed throughout so that it doesn’t fall apart when you take it out of the mold later.
For an extra luxurious experience, add some natural additions like dried rose petals or lavender flowers for color and scent!
When finished, let your CBD bath bombs sit in the molds for at least 24 hours before using so they can fully harden. Then, when ready, carefully pop them out of the molds and enjoy a relaxing soak!
