Yields: 4 large bath bombs
You deserve to treat yourself and what better way then taking a luxurious bubble bath with some amazing DIY CBD milk tea bath bombs! But this tutorial isn’t for any old ordinary bath bombs, it’s for CBD black tea bath bombs!!! CBD is popular among beauty gurus for a reason, so get ready for amazing looking skin and to feel like a queen! The milk tea formula packed inside this bath bomb will moisturize your skin making it satisfyingly smooth. This special DIY formulation is easy to make and amazing in its effectiveness.
By using CBD black tea instead of CBD oil you will get 3 big pluses with which other CBD bath bombs just can’t compete. First, you will feel the skin rejuvenation benefits from the black tea leaves. The caffeine and herbal benefits from the black tea will awaken and nourish your skin.
The second benefit of using Vivify’s CBD black tea is that your skin will better absorb the CBD. Because oil separates from water when an oil-based CBD product gets added to your bath, all the CBD oil will just float to the surface of the tub and even cling to the tub walls instead of being absorbed into your skin. However, Vivify’s CBD tea leaves are infused with CBD and specially designed so the CBD is dissolved into the water. Using nanoemulsion technology Vivify’s CBD is the best product on the market if you need your CBD to be completely infused.
The third reason why Vivify’s black tea bath bombs are the best DIY solution is because of how easy and affordable the project is to make! Because the tea is 2 in 1 you won’t need to buy multiple ingredients. All the other components of the recipe you should be able to find in your local grocery store if you don’t already have them in your kitchen! All you will need is the following:
- 2 cups (19 oz/539 g) baking soda
- 1 cup (8 oz/227 g) citric acid
- 2 tsp of ground to a powder CBD black tea ( about 2 bags)
- 1 tablespoon (7 g) milk powder (cow, goat or coconut)
- 1 oz (abt 1/4 cup or 13 wafers) cocoa butter (or another type of butter)
- 1 bag of Vivify’s CBD black tea to decorate the top of bath bomb (optional)
- 5 drops each geranium, clary sage, & lavender essential oils, optional for a light scent
- bath bomb molds (you can also use muffin tins or other kitchen molds)
- witch hazel in a small spray bottle
Step 1 Prepare your Ingredients
Cut open 2 tea bags of Vivify Tea Co.’s CBD Black Tea and grind to a powder. I recommend using a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder.
In a separate bowl prep your wet ingredients by melting the cocoa butter and pour in any essential oils you may be using.
Step 2 – Combine Ingredients
Mix CBD tea powder into a bowl with the baking soda, citric acid, and milk powder. Throughout mixing break up any clumps with your fingers. Next, slowly add in the wet ingredients.
Spray mixture with witch hazel (6-8 spritzes). Be careful not to add too much or your mixture may become too wet.
Step 3 – Shape Bath Bombs
For optional decoration, crush a small number of tea leaves and sprinkle them on the bottoms of the molds. Next, use your hands to form a test ball about the size of a tennis ball. If the mix holds its shape then you can press the bath bomb mixture into the molds. If it crumbles spray your entire mix with more witch hazel until it no longer crumbles. Press the two mold halves together (spray with witch hazel if they don’t stick). Carefully remove them from their molds and place them on a towel to dry for 24hrs.
Step 4 – Enjoy
Run yourself a hot bath, light some candles, and put on your favorite relaxing playlist. Then drop in your homemade bath bomb! Watch it fuzz and relax as your skin absorbs all the nourishing effects!
Step 5 (Optional) – Brag!
