The tea is brewed, music turned on, and the lights are turned down low. As the tub fills for this special bliss bath, I sprinkle in spoonfuls of Lavender and CBD infused epsom salts. The smell pushes my first relaxation button. Yeah, I’m about to relax, on purpose.
I sink into the hot water and almost instantly take a big sigh. I am here and nothing else matters right now. My only mission is to relax and stay in here for at least 20 minutes to let my skin absorb CBD and magnesium from the salts. A timer was thoughtfully set in case I think I need to be doing something else before my 20 minutes is up.
I take a few minutes to settle in, breathe, and relax. This is holistic self care at its best. Tension and chaos start melting away.
Getting CBD through the skin is one of my favorite delivery methods for using cannabis. I don’t have to eat or inhale anything, my skin does the job for me.
As the bath continues, I’m all scrubbed up and now just waiting for the timer to go off. It is time to take it to the next level of relaxation. Add meditation. I remind myself that I have no where else to be that is more important than right here and focus on my breathing to relax and tune in a little bit more. Before too long I am able to find that bliss point where my body goes into full relaxation floating mode. Hurray! Making it to this bliss point feels like a real accomplishment since I was feeling so wound up when I got into the tub.
The timer goes off and I celebrate my ability to relax for 20 whole minutes by lingering in the tub for another 10. I’m no longer in a rush to get out of the tub. With finger tips that look like raisins from being in the bath so long, I pull the drain and lay there while the water gets lower and my skin is exposed to the colder air. I get out of the bath feeling warm and good to the core that I have done something so nice for my body and being. I proceed to crawl into bed, fully relaxed, and and sleep soundly until sunrise.
Did you catch all the benefits of this bath?
Physical and mental relaxation, great sleep, absorbing CBD and magnesium (among other beneficial herbs blended into the bath salts) through the skin. After the CBD bath, my body is in less pain and feels rejuvenated. Amazing.
Bliss can be found in a hot tub full of infused water.
