Ever wondered how to make cannabis bath salts? If so then you’re in the right place, read on and follow these steps to make your own in no time!

Marijuana bath bombs recipe

This recipe can be used to make both THC bath bombs or CBD bath bombs, and that adjustment is made in the oil you choose to use as a base. Once you are finished, you should have two large bath bombs to enjoy. Play with different scents and fragrances to find the ones that relax you the most. This will add an aromatic effect which can be beneficial for both the mind and body.


  • 8 ounces of baking soda
  • 4 ounces of Epsom salts
  • 2 ounces of cornstarch
  • 3 teaspoons of water
  • 4 ounces of citric acid
  • 2 teaspoons of skin safe fragrance oil (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of infused tincture or oil (whatever strength of either CBD or THC that you prefer)
  • 4 drops of food coloring


  • 2 round molds
  • 1 large mixing bowl per color
  • 1 plastic mixing spoon per color


  1. Pour all your dry ingredients into one large mixing bowl and mix until all the ingredients are well blended.
  2. Now you will want to either separate the mixture in two halves if you are making two different colored marijuana bath bombs. Skip this step if you are wanting both of your THC bath bombs the same color.
  3. Add all the wet ingredients except for the food coloring and mix it well. If you are making two separate colors, each ingredient will need to be split in half before being added.
  4. The best way to color bath bombs is by dropping one or two drops of food coloring for each marijuana bath bomb you are making. This should be done immediately before pressing the mixture into molds for the brightest effect.
  5. Once the color has been added to the base and mixed in you should be able to squeeze the clump into a circular shape with your hands. Do that and then squish it into a bath bomb mold.
  6. Put the filled bath bomb molds in a safe space to set and dry. This should take approximately 30 minutes, but for bombs that are easy to remove with the least risk for damage, it is recommended to wait 3-4 hours for some of the moisture to leave it which makes it harder and shrink a bit making it easier to remove.
  7. Enjoy your freshly made cannabis bath bombs. Simply drop one into the tub right before you get in and soak up the all-natural goodness.
