Endocannabinoids are the cannabinoids naturally produced by our Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which helps maintain our internal physiological balance, otherwise known as homeostasis. Endocannabinoids, their receptors (called CB1 and CB2), and neurotransmitters (predominantly the 2-AG and anandamide) help regulate aspects like our energy levels, immunity, brain function, mood, sleep, and appetite.
The ECS is a comprehensive internal system that interacts and impacts every organ in our body!
Sodium Bicarbonate & Citric Acid: Otherwise known as baking soda and Vitamin C. These two ingredients combined create the “fizzy” effect of a bath bomb.
Epsom Salt: Epsom salt baths can help soften rough or dry skin and can exfoliate dead skin cells. It also aids in reducing soreness & pain.
Corn Starch: Corn starch manages the fizzing reaction of the ingredients; so if you drop your bath bomb in the water, it will not “explode”!
Sunflower Oil: Sunflower oil is a non-comedogenic carrier oil which is highly absorbent. In short: sunflower oil won’t clog your pores. Additionally, it is non-irritating for most people and can be used on all skin types.
Water: What scientists refer to as H20.
Organic Hemp-Derived Cannabidiol (CBD): CBD is a naturally occurring & non-intoxicating cannabinoid (chemical compound) found in both hemp and cannabis plants.
Aromatherapy Oils: Aromatherapy is simply the combination of essential oils for therapeutic benefit. When inhaled, the molecules in essential oils work their way from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and can positively impact the amygdala, which is the emotional center of the brain.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA): SLSa is derived from coconut and palm oils. SLSa is safe and skin-friendly.
Mica Powder: The biggest benefit of mica is its ability to create a natural shimmery finish, since it can be milled to a fine powder. It is naturally produced and safe to use on almost all skin types.
Polysorbate 80: A vegetable-sourced emulsifier that is skin-safe. Polysorbate 80 helps ingredients mix throughout the water instead of separating, which will make your bath bomb experience even better!
