Directions For Making CBD Bath Bombs
You have some dry ingredients and some of them are wet. The mold has two sides.
The basic process is to create a dampen sand-like mixture from all the ingredients and fill the mold with that mixture. So here is the actual procedure to make your own CBD bath bombs.
Put all dry ingredients(baking soda, Epsom salt, and cornstarch) in a bowl. Whisk the ingredients till they get evenly mixed.
Mix all wet ingredients like citric acid, CBD infused coconut oil, essential oil, and water (except color) in a glass vessel.
Now you have two types of the mixture. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. Whisking is needed throughout. You’ll see fizzing as soon as you mix the two of them. Add the color now(food coloring is best).
Once you have combined all the ingredients(dry, wet and color) they will appear as damp sand. Put a small amount of that mixture on your hand and squeeze it firmly. The mixture should stick together when you release your palm. If not then mix a few drops of water to create the desired consistency of the ingredients.
Your mold will come in the action now! You have two pieces of mold. Fill each half(pieces) with the mixture that you have prepared, but make sure you don’t fill it too densely.
Firmly press both the halves of the mold together. Keep on holding them for a few seconds. Slowly remove one side of the mold. You’ll find a small spherical structure made from various ingredients. Allow it to dry for about 20 minutes.
Remove the other side of mold gently. Don’t worry if you see both bath bombs falling apart. You can remix them once again. Let these bombs sit for a night. So the next day you’ll get a totally firm CBD bath bomb that will offer you a relaxing experience altogether!
CBD bath bombs can be very helpful if you suffer from muscle pain or anxiety. As the CBD gets absorbed throughout your skin, it reaches every part of your body through your pores in a few minutes. Isn’t it a great way to start your day with? Give it a try.
