There is more evidence every day about the positive effects of CBD for the well-being of the body.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is derived from the hemp plant, and it does not induce any psychoactive effects. It can be very helpful in relieving the pain and muscle ache and that makes it an efficient remedy for fibromyalgia.
This condition can be manifested differently in different individuals; however the common symptoms that reflect in people are chronic fatigue, muscle pain, and trigger points (tender points) that can result in pain onset. There are also other accompanied symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia, headaches, and digestive issues.
Fibromyalgia is not a serious health condition but nonetheless still painful and very annoying. There are medications that can help with the pain relief, but there are still none for the complete treatment of this condition,
Fortunately, there are effective homemade remedies that can help a lot in its treatment, but the most effective one for sure is the use of the scented CBD bath bombs. The use of this remedy can treat a number of the symptoms of fibromyalgia at once.

Homemade CBD Bath Bomb
This recipe should provide you with one bath bomb, but this may vary depending on the size of the molds being used.
- 1 cup of baking soda
- Half a cup of citric acid
- Half a cup of corn starch
- Half a cup of Epsom salt
- 100mg of CBD derived from CBD oil*
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of water
- 10-20 drops of lavender essential oil or another scent of preference (optional use)
- organic food coloring (optional use)
- A large bowl
*The amount of CBD oil varies as the strength is different when it is administrated in drops or ml. If the drop of the CBD oil you use is 1mg, then you will need 100 drops. If still your calculation is not good, then you should try the CBD oil calculator.
Take the large bowl and in it whisk the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salt, and corn starch. Next, in a separate bowl, combine the CBD oil, coconut oil, water, essential oils, and the natural food coloring. After that slowly include the liquid ingredients to the dry ones making sure to stir the mixture all the time. When you obtain a smooth texture place the mixture in a mold, and then pack it tightly leaving it to dry out for a minimum of one day.
The CBD bath bomb will relax your body and mind after a long and hard working day.
Note: This bath cannot be a substitute for a medical advice. It is only a way how to relieve some of the symptoms. Prior use make sure to consult your physician.
Where to purchase quality CBD Oil?
We strongly recommend prior purchasing a CBD product to make an extensive research. According to Consumer Reports you should buy CBD oil from a country where products are closely regulated and standardized. Check the COA- Certificate of Analysis on the product where the CBD and THC content are being listed along with the test results for the presence of any contaminants. The best product would be if in the COA there is a quote of meeting ISO 17025 standards.
Have in mind that companies selling “hemp oil” have lower amounts of cannabidiol than the “CBD oil” and that will not make it as effective.
You should be aware of the fact that industrial grade hemp contains 0.3% THC levels and this substance is still not regulated substance in the United States. Products containing THC levels that are over this limit are not allowed for use in the USA. Canada in 2018 permitted the use of recreational marijuana which makes it legal the use of medical THC and CBD.
