DIY CBD Bath Bombs Using Canna Trading Co Tinctures

CBD bath bombs are quickly becoming popular. While they may not be available in your area and waiting for an item to arrive in the mail might not be appealing, you can use the Canna Trading Co. Tinctures you already have on hand to make your own. Bath bombs are a method of relaxing after a stressful day as well as helping your muscles relax. There are dozens of different combinations targeting support of specific aggravators in the body already available, so why not take those ideas and add CBD to them too?

Our simple guide will have you making CBD bath bombs like a pro in no time. Get a head start on Christmas gifts and perfect your technique in time to make a bunch to give as gifts this year. Handmade gifts are often appreciated more because of the time and thought that goes into making them. It’s not something off of a store shelf that everyone has, which makes these gifts even more special.

DIY CBD Bath Bombs Base Recipe

When you’re making your own CBD bath bombs, you’ll need a base recipe. From here, you can play with different combinations of essential oils and colors to make your creations unique.  If you are choosing to color your bath bombs, we suggest using dry coloring pigment. It’s great to add color, but you don’t want to color your skin in the process and dry, powdered pigment is the way to go. You can find coloring pigment on Amazon.

CBD Bath Bombs Ingredients:

½ cup Epsom salt

½ cup cornstarch

¾ tablespoon water

1 ½ tablespoons almond oil or coconut oil

1 Tablespoon Canna Trading Co. CBD Tincture of your choice (we’ll give suggestions in different essential oil combinations later)

1 cup baking soda

½ cup citric acid

Dry coloring pigment

14 drops essential oil (we’ll give you some combinations of oils to play with below)

Mixing these ingredients couldn’t be easier. Start by mixing your cornstarch, baking soda, cry coloring pigment and citric acid in a bowl. Use a fork to combine them. Then, add your Epsom salt. Mix the wet ingredients separately. Add just a few drops at a time to ensure that you are distributing them evenly. The wet ingredient mixture is also where you’ll add your essential oils.

Note: The amount of coloring pigment you add is up to you. You’ll be able to see how bright or light the color is once you’ve added the water, oil and CBD tincture. It’s easy to adjust the color if you want it brighter or darker by just adding a little more of the pigment.

The next step is shaping your CBD bath bombs into your desired shape. Balls are the most common shape. Use silicone molds for this process as they are the easiest to work with and are flexible.

Press the CBD bath bombs into the molds firmly. Once you’ve reached a firm shape, allow them to sit for at least 24 hours to ensure that they are completely dry. Store your CBD bath bombs in an airtight container away from heat sources. The CBD bath bombs should last for up to 6 months if properly stored.

Fun Fact: Bath bombs fizz because of the citric acid and baking soda in them.

Essential Oil and Tincture Combinations for CBD Bath Bombs

We’ve put together a few essential oil and tincture combinations for your CBD bath bombs to give them great scents. Some of these aromatherapy combinations are intentional.  We hope you enjoy these combinations. Remember, you’ll use 14 drops of essential oil total in your CBD bath bombs, so make sure you’re using the number of drops of each oil that we suggest. Of course, you could adjust them if you’d like a little more of one aroma than another.

The Stress Blend

Stress can affect you in several ways, including leading to tense muscles. Aromatherapy is great for stress and the right combination of essential oils can also play a vital role in relaxing.

Stress Oil Blend:

Mix these in with your wet ingredient mixture before adding small amounts at a time to your bath bomb.

Relaxation Blend

Sometimes you just need to relax. Having that perfect work/life balance is hard. Feel free to take a glass of wine or tea to the bath with you – or a good book.

Relaxation Oil Blend:

  • 1 Tablespoon Canna Trading Co. Anxiety Tincture
  • 3 drops mandarin essential oil
  • 4 drops lavender essential oil
  • 4 drops chamomile essential oil
  • 3 drops sandalwood essential oil

Give this a sniff before adding it to your CBD bath bombs base. The aroma alone might trigger your mind to begin relaxing.

Body Energizing Oil Blend

The body can just feel tired sometimes, especially after a demanding day or a day of hiking. Sometimes you’re just so busy that your body doesn’t get the time it needs to recharge its own internal batteries. A little help from essential oils might do the trick.

Energizing Blend:

  • 1 Tablespoon Canna Trading Co. Peppermint Tincture
  • 2 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 4 drops grapefruit essential oil
  • 2 drops lemon essential oil
  • 2 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 4 drops ginger essential oil

For this one, feel free to swap the quantities of the essential oils if you prefer one aroma over another.

The Mood Essential Oil Blend

Everyone has days where they’re just not in a good mood. Have you ever had a day where you didn’t even like yourself? It happens. This essential oil blend might also lend a hand.

Mood Blend:

  • 1 Tablespoon Canna Trading Co. Alchemy tincture
  • 3 drops lemongrass essential oil
  • 3 drops clary sage essential oil
  • 2 drops rose essential oil
  • 3 drops frankincense essential oil
  • 3 drops lavender essential oil

If you’re not a fan of the smell or roses, simply choose bergamot instead or you can increase the lavender essential oil used.

Rise and Shine Essential Oil Blend

Sleep isn’t always your friend. When you wake up in the morning and just aren’t ready to start the day, give your mind and body a little jumpstart with an invigorating blend of essential oils.

Rise and Shine Blend:

If you’d like, you could also reduce the patchouli and jasmine essential oils by half and add 4 drops of lemon or orange essential oil instead.

Closing Thoughts

We hope you enjoy making these DIY CBD bath bombs. They can be any size you want, but a size that is between a golf ball and tennis ball is ideal. These make great gifts. If you make more than one color and essential oil combination, consider placing them in separate, labeled jars so that you can choose the right combination for your need at that moment.
