We’ve all seen them in store or watched videos on the internet of crazy explosions of bubbly colors that range from cotton candy pink all the way to black and glittery. Bath bombs are a huge trend lately and for good reason. Who doesn’t love relaxing?! But did you know that many of these bath bombs are actually full of chemicals and not so relaxing things? I personally have really sensitive skin and most of these trendy oh-so-fun looking bath fizzes will go as far as having me break out in hives and itch like that one time I walked through poison ivy. (🎵Leaves of three, let it be!🎵) So I did what I always do and did some digging to bring you all a safer, homemade CBD infused bath bomb with limited ingredients that you can make to tailor fit why you’re using it!

I tried several different recipes to see which ones would work with added CBD and in the end, I used part of Dr. Pompa’s recipe then tweaked it to add scents, essential oils, and CBD. I’ll link the original recipe at the bottom of the page!

Your ingredients are going to vary depending on what scents you’d like to add! I made a lavender essential oil AND one without the oil but added crushed up lavender. Both worked and smelled wonderful. I also used eucalyptus oil in one as well and it too worked wonderfully! You could use several different options of herbs, flowers or essential oils but those were the two I tried. I’ll list some other options below!


  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts ( I crushed mine up a little bit more than they already are)
  • 2 Tbsp. organic, raw virgin coconut oil
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid – can be found at your local grocery store in the canning section
  • 2 droppers of Pure Hemp Botanicals CBD Tincture OR 2-3 small pinches of Pure Hemp Botanicals CBD Frost
  • *Scents of choice. I used 1/4 cup dried lavender (I ran it through the food processor to make it smaller pieces as well.) In the essential oil ones I used 5 drops of each and added 1-2 to each ball depending on how strong I wanted it to be.*


  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl, mixing slowly. You may see some fizz happening already, but that is okay.
  4. Start the process of forming the ingredients into small ball shapes.
  5. Prepare a muffin pan with a few drops of olive oil to make sure each muffin compartment is oiled slightly, so the bath bombs don’t stick after they dry.
  6. Take the small balls and firmly push them into each muffin mold. Note: don’t put too much of the mixture in, as they expand.
  7. Leave in a well-ventilated area for at least 3 hours or until they are dry upon touch. If it is muggy, you may need to leave them dry overnight.
  8. Pop them out of each mold and place in an airtight bag so they don’t get soggy. You can use natural parchment paper baggies from your local health food store to store your bath bombs.

Here are some awesome blends from Dr. Pompa you can use for your bath bomb scents!
