Indulging In A CBD Bath: Benefits and "How To"
We are big fans of a CBD bath here at Vital Body Therapeutics. When days are long or muscles ache, nothing gives the same amount of relief as a long CBD Epsom Soak bath and a good book. With that said, one of the most asked questions is how to use the CBD Epsom Soak! So today, we are sharing how we create a CBD bath ritual and the benefits of indulging in a CBD bath.
First, let’s talk about the benefits. Epsom salt is not like the salt you put on your food, but a combination of magnesium, sulfate, oxygen, and in this case, CBD. When you are taking a warm bath with Epsom salt, the salt breaks down and your skin is able to absorb all of the wonderful minerals in this state.
If you or a loved one is suffering from chronic muscle aches, arthritis, constipation, hemorrhoids, menstrual cramps, and insomnia, then you will most likely find some major relief from a CBD Epsom Soak bath. Epsom soak with CBD oil even helps soothe dry skin and calm itchy skin. (Try gently scrubbing dry skin patches with a little damp soak prior to getting in the tub. We like to do it over the tub so we don’t waste product.) Adding a CBD Epsom Soak ritual to your self-care routine once or twice a week could be just what you were missing!
Our CBD Epsom Soak is beyond effective- not only is there 200mg of CBD infused, but there is an ample amount of soothing, organic essential oils such as Lavender, Ho Wood, and Bergamot!
How to Create the Perfect CBD Bath
First, light a candle and put on some music or grab your favorite book. We recommend the water to be as warm as you can handle and soak for 20 minutes or more. If you tend to get warm quickly--bring in a large chilled bottle of water and a cold washcloth to drape on your forehead. Lastly, to avoid scrambling around, grab everything you will need to get out of the bath, like your towel and mat.
Now... Prepare for some major relaxation and pain relief! Add 1-4 servings of our CBD Epsom Soak into running water. This depends on your day. If you are really sore from a workout or long stressful day, add more. If you are just doing a bit of routine self-care just add 1 serving (5 oz). You can’t add too much and we often add the whole bag after an intense workout, long hours in the warehouse, or a day spent chasing the kids!
After the bath, you can rinse off, but it isn’t necessary. Follow up by applying our CBD Pain Relief Cream or Balm to trouble areas (learn which is right for you here), such as your knees, back or even the scalp to help with headaches or sleep issues. To keep skin soft and supple, finish with our new CBD Body Oil to the entire body.
