Bath times are our time. A chance to shut out the world, light a candle or two, and just be. There’s no better feeling than unwinding in a warm bath and enjoying the calmness that descends over you as the mind and body gradually relax. And that’s where CBD bath products come in.
If you’re looking for the ultimate way to destress, trust us when we say that you should seriously consider investing in a CBD bath bomb or some CBD bath salts.
Known for its calming, healing, and restoring effects, CBD can help to promote relaxation, help us get a good night’s sleep, and enhance our overall sense of wellness.
Lucky for us, there’s no shortage of CBD bath bombs and CBD salts to try and the benefits start to happen as soon as you dissolve the bomb or sprinkle the salts into a warm bath, as that’s when the infusions start to break down and release into the water.
Whilst you’re soaking and the warmth of the water has opened your pores, the goodness of the minerals, CBD oil and terpenes plus any essential oils contained within the product will be absorbed into both your skin and your bloodstream.
CBD is well-known for its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits which can help to relax tired and aching muscles, especially after a workout or if you’re suffering from a stiff neck and shoulders after a day spent tapping away at your keyboard.
As CBD is an anti-oxidant too, it can help to nourish the skin and along with the anti-inflammatory benefits it can also help to fight irritation and redness associated with psoriasis, eczema and acne.
The benefits of a CBD bath are not just confined to skincare as it really can help to reduce stress and anxiety. That’s because CBD works with the Endocannabinoid System, which is responsible for regulating our mood, so making time for a soothing bath can help boost serotonin levels which can have a positive impact on our emotions.
So what to look out for when buying a CBD-infused bath product.
- Look for products that combine the CBD with specific therapeutic minerals and essential oils to enhance the overall effect
- As with anything that’s going to be absorbed by the skin, always read the instructions so you know how long you need to soak to ensure your body gets the maximum benefit
- Always buy from a reputable brand
To save you time and energy because after all, this is about relaxation, we’ve put together a list of our top 10 CBD bathing products, all from brilliant companies and all at different price points.
