CBD Skin Care & Topicals Recipe

by Dec 22, 2019CBD Recipes

Lets learn how to make CBD topicals at home with some Cannabidiol Life style!

The Basics:

Cannabidiol or CBD isolate is a pure crystalline form of extract usually achieved through CO^2 processing. The wonderful part of isolate as a product is that it can be bought in bulk and used for home goods. From CBD edibles to topicals the applications are endless.


Pick up some of our high quality, EPA compliant, GMP certified isolate and give some of our recipes a shot!


Creating products at home guarantees a safe clean environment, and cuts the middle man and extra costs of production, like grocery shopping versus eating out, it’s just generally more cost effective.

CBD Bathbomb Recipe


CBD Bath bomb are extremely fun to make and even more of a joy to use. They are also notoriously fickle, any change in the mixture can cause problems. It is best to use high quality ingredients. Citric Acid especially can cause clumping or drying. Ball brand canning citric acid works amazingly well for making CBD bath bombs at home. We cannot stress this enough. 


To make bath bombs at home begin by mixing dry ingredients together in a mechanical mixer at very low speed. Mix a bit by hand to make sure no clumps or unincorporated parts at the bottom. 

Dry Ingredients

  • 3 cups Baking Soda
  • 1.5 cup Citric Acid
  • 1.5 cups Cornstarch
  • 3 TBSP of Epsom Salt
  • CBD Isolate

Once fully combined with no clumping put on very low speed and add all wet ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 1.5 TBSP Jojoba Oil
  • 1 TBSP Rosehip Oil
  • 1 TBSP Argan Oil
  • 1 TBSP Water
  • 1 TBSP Alcohol
  • 1 TBSP Lavender Essential Oil Scent
  • 1 TBSP Coloring
  • 4 TBSP Cocoa Butter (Melted)

Allow this mixture to spin for 1-2 mins to fully combine. Stop the mixer and feel the mixture. It should feel like wet sand, and not grainy. Once fully combined use mixture with bath bomb press of choice and form. Once formed place to dry for 24 hours.

CBD Salve

INGREDIENTS for CBD Salve or CBD Balm:

  • 1 Cup Oil (any oil works, but we love coconut)
  • 1 oz. Beeswax or Soy Wax
  • 3g of CBD Isolate or Oil
  • (Optional – Essential Oils and/or Extracts)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Heat oil and wax using the double boiler tecnique. This involves having a pot with hot water, and another above it to absorb indirect heat (commonly used for melting chocolate).
  • Add your CBD preference to the warm base and stir until mixed. Make sure not to overheat.
  • Remove the mixture from the heat and allow to begin cooling.
  • Once your misture has cooled a bit you can add essential extracts if decided to use. Do not add to the balm if it is completely cooled.
  • Pour cooling mixture into a container like glass to finish.

cbd lotion

  • ¾ Cup Water
  • ¼ Cup Oil like coconut 
  • 1 oz. Beeswax or Soy Wax
  • 3g of CBD Isolate or Oil
  • (Optional – Essential Oils and/or Extracts)

  • Heat oil and wax using the double boiler tecnique. This involves having a pot with hot water, and another above it to absorb indirect heat (commonly used for melting chocolate).
  • Add your CBD preference to the warm base and stir until mixed. Make sure not to overheat.
  • Remove the mixture from the heat and allow to begin cooling.
  • Once your misture has cooled a bit you can add essential extracts if decided to use. Then add water slowly. Do not add to the balm if it is completely cooled. Mix thoroughly.
  • Pour cooling mixture into a container like glass to finish.

Extra Additives

Using CBD to make topicals at home is relatively straight forward. Adding extra extracts or essential oils is where recipes can begin to be a little more complicated. This is because there are so many to choose from. Below are some of our favorites and what we believe go well for CBD skin care.

  • Lavender: Lavender smells wonderful and this is mainly why you will find it in our bath bombs. Lavender may help reduce stress and anxiety, heal wounds, and clear acne. 
  • Eucalyptus: The eucalyptus plant is  known in homeopathic care to function as an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-fungal. People also use it to help with dry skin, muscle pain, and acne. 
  • Tea Tree: Tea tree oil is one of the most popular essential oils used for acne. When combined with CBD (which research shows maybe beneficial for acne-prone skin), you’ve got a potentially powerful natural remedy.
  • Ylang-Ylang: Ylang-ylang has a wonderfully flowery scent. The Chinese have used Ylang-ylang to help with acne for centuries. They also use it for skin health for elasticity, smoothing and wrinkles. A great ingredient for anyone concerned with aging skin.
  • Peppermint: What better way to show someone you love them during the holidays then to make a home made peppermint CBD balm. Peppermint essential oil is doted to be excellent for relieving pain and inflammation associated with arthritis. CBD may also help to alleviate arthritis pain.
  • Frankincense: Frankincense is so old its mentioned in ancient texts! For centuries it has been used for its purported anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It also may help to relieve stress, enhance immune function, improve memory, and reduce the signs of aging like stretch marks. Its scent is slightly sweet, and woodsy/earthy.
