As life seems more and more stressful and the everyday grind seems to get to people, one of the newer products and trends in the self-care industry is CBD bath bombs.
Bath bombs have been around for quite a while now- they are colourful, bubble up when you put them in the water (so cool!) and many are scented with relaxing fragrances and contain oils and salts that are good for skins and help aching muscles, and lots of people swear by their therapeutic nature. Especially with rising levels of depression and anxiety, we are needing a little bit more than a moment of peace in the tub.
In the last couple of years CBD oil has become the biggest self-care product that is even eclipsing the traditional anxiety remedies, many people find the oils to be relaxing and help destress from a long day so it seems only natural for the two industries to meet up and try out a crossover, the CBD bath bomb.
We'll be looking at whether or not CBD bath bombs are worthwhile and where to buy them from, let's get into it:
Do CBD bath bombs really work?
What are the benefits of CBD bath bombs
What are the best CBD bath bombs to buy in the UK?

We know that CBD can be absorbed effectively be the skin when applied topically, so it is likely that CBD bath bombs do really work. However it would always be better to apply a CBD balm because you can actually rub it into the skin, which helps the CBD to be absorbed.
We have a whole post about what CBD bath bombs actually do that you can check out.
CBD is a compound derived from marijuana plants but are absent the hallucinogenic compound of THC and therefore don’t get people high. You may already know the benefits of CBD but how can they be taken in from a CBD bath bomb? I was pretty suspicious of this one myself- but the science checks out and my experience of them has actually been pretty positive. The idea behind the bath bomb is that the CBD is absorbed into the skin through the bathwater- which makes sense as the warm water opens your pores. There is one issue though- you can pay more than £10 per bath bomb, and while they are amazing at the time, most of the CBD gets washed down the plughole. There are certainly more cost-effective ways of taking on your daily CBD dose, but it could be worth it.
They can help people relax and are used by many people in the self-care industry as a way to help their aching or exhausted body; CBD has anti-inflammatory properties. Maybe a good relaxing treat for an athlete or nurse.
As the legalization movement has spread worldwide for marijuana, knowledge and comfort with things that are derived from the plant like CBD oils have risen and these days the reality is that there are tons of CBD infused products from waters, candies and of course bath bombs.
Yes you are reading this correctly - Lush, the popular high street cosmetics brand, have created their very own CBD bath bomb and it actually looks awesome. Plus, we really love the name (4:20pm is the ideal time to run yourself a bath and enjoy a CBD bath bomb). Each bomb contains 25mg of CBD which is actually a pretty decent amount even compared to many of the bath bombs created by actual CBD companies. Our only criticism would be that it is maybe a little expensive. Overall we're impressed and recommend you give it a try.

One website based out of the UK that sells these bath bombs is BonneBombe, they specifically sell a “Sleep Assist” CBD Hemp Oil Aroma Therapy Bath Bomb that they point out is cruelty and GMO free and Vegan. The totally legal bath bomb has 25mg of CBD oil and is absent of all active THC ingredients and therefore doesn’t require any special licenses or anything to buy, sell or transport. The website does state that this product is not intended for use of anyone under the age of 18, but otherwise is a totally safe to use. It’s recommended to be used in warm water and that the warm water opens up your skin and allows the CBD to be quickly absorbed accordingly to help with relaxation. Some of the essential oils included in the bomb are Lavender, Lemon and Chamomile, combining for a rather relaxing infusion of oils.

Lazy Sunday promises that these are bath bombs for people with chronic pain, made by people with chronic pain hoping to help give someone a pick me up.
