Next time you light some candles and take a hot bath, treat yourself and buy some CBD bath salt or powder, instead of having a regular Epsom salt bath. Mixing CBD with Dead Sea salt benefits both your physical and mental well-being. 

CBD products have been on the rise, and for very good reason! Cannabinoid-infused soaks are relatively new and boast plenty of physical and mental benefits. CBD oils, topicals, and other products are continuing to grow in popularity as ways to manage anxiety, stress, pain, and other symptoms. Topicals are products you can spread on the skin for localized relief of pain, inflammation, soreness, and potentially headaches. To put it simply, your body and mind will thank you for incorporating it into your daily life!

First off, what is CBD? 

You might be wondering how CBD benefits your everyday life and why everyone is talking about it. Well, let's start off with the basics and spell out what it really is. Cannabidiol is known to be a natural pain reliever. It's a part of over 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, specifically in Cannabis Sativa. 

Does CBD get you high? 

The answer is definitely no. Unlike THC, CBD does not give you a 'high' sensation when you consume or use it topically. THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis which is known to give you that 'high' feeling. In contrast, CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical (1).

Why take a bath in it? 

Dissolving a CBD-infused product, like bath salts or a bath powder, into a tub of hot water and soaking in it can help quicken the process of absorption into the skin and bloodstream through the pores. Among other benefits, it has anti-inflammatory properties. It’s best used for calming down inflammation, whether it be from eczema or pain. Refresh Life, a newly launched wellness company, infuses its natural, dead sea bath salts with Cannabidiol and essential oils to help soothe tired or inflamed muscles. 

How does CBD make your bath better? 

1. Reduces pain and inflammation

One report conducted by the Journal of Experimental Medicine shows that there is substantial evidence that cannabis is an effective way to treat chronic pain in adults. There are a variety of CBD products that you can use for your next bath such as CBD bath powder, Dead Sea salts infused with natural essential oils. 

2. CBD and Dead Sea salts complement each other

Magnesium flakes and the Dead Sea salts have largely the same effects and health benefits. As both products contain a high level of magnesium, they both help to:

  • support normal joint function
  • relieve muscle tension
  • hydrate skin
  • relieve physical stress and fatigue

Dead Sea salts’ impact on skin health is often emphasized. Just like magnesium flakes, Dead Sea salts can hydrate the skin, improve the skin barrier function and soothe irritated skin.

As you can see, there is a significant overlap with CBD, which is known for its ability to stabilize appetite, provide pain relief, and improve mood. When Dead Sea Salt is used together with CBD, you can experience the mutual benefit that you can enjoy while sitting in a tub filled with warm water. 

3. May Prevent Acne 

According to Healthline, recent scientific studies showed that "CBD topicals may help treat acne due to its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reduce sebum production." They also revealed that the CBD oil triggered an anti-inflammatory reaction in the cells and prevented inflammatory cytokines from activating. Cytokines may trigger acne, so reducing them may help prevent further breakouts.

4. May Soothe Sensitive Skin 

Another benefit of CBD hemp oil is that it has been found to have significant soothing properties. Its substantial skin-calming and skin-normalizing effects can help minimize issues related to skin sensitivity, including redness and reactivity. Since all skin types are affected daily by environmental stressors, CBD’s soothing mechanism can help keep everyone’s skin in check. An important note is to test out the product on your skin beforehand to make sure that your skin reacts well with it. 

5. Essential oils help with relaxation

Essential oils are another added bonus that you can include in your ‘me time’. Each oil is associated with a different benefit, and when used together with CBD (the “ultimate” alternative medicine), the overlap can create powerful harmonious action. Below you’ll find a list of some of the more common essential oils and their benefits:

  • Lavender essential oil – Associated with relaxation and serenity
  • Eucalyptus essential oil – Helps with breathing and immunity
  • Grapefruit essential oil – Supports metabolism and kills cellulite
  • Tangerine essential oil- Antiseptic, kills bacteria
  • Sage essential oil- Ease muscular and joint pain
  • Hemp oil- Helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as prevent signs of aging
