‘Tis the season to start thinking about what to give your nearest and dearest. If you're anything like us, you must be in a constant standoff with the gifting dilemma. Let’s face it, thinking about what to give can become quite tedious.
After the past two unrelenting years, we’d lay odds that anyone would appreciate something that promotes calm and peace of mind. While we can’t solve the global crisis for our loved ones, we can treat them to a moment of self-care in many ways. Case in point: bath treats.
Bath products are one of the most fuss-free gift options and the go-to gift for many of us. Not only are they widely available but they are practical, made for the young and old plus they look luxurious without breaking the bank. Anybody will attest to the fact that they’ve been gifted a bath bomb, a bath gel, or a bath set at least once in their lives - and for another good reason. Who doesn’t like to enjoy a nice shower or a long good soak in the bathtub after a stressful day?
If you’re looking to elevate your gifting game this season with something to promote calm and relaxation but without seeming run-of-the-mill, we’ve listed down 4 reasons why CBD bath treats will make the perfect little luxuries to spoil your friends and family (or yourself).
1. CBD and its skin benefits
Bath time in itself promotes relaxation but adding CBD into the mix may give bath a boost, thanks to its anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and anti-bacterial effects. Before we delve deeper into the benefits of CBD on skin, it’s important to note that CBD in skincare has not yet been proven to reverse any health conditions and should not be used as medicinal treatment. So what exactly does this controversial chemical compound have to offer in bath time?
Several independent studies and anecdotal evidence have highlighted CBD’s efficacy as a skin aid. For instance, a 2016 research suggests CBD as a promising therapeutic agent for treating acne. According to another study, the power of CBD is seemingly on par or more effective than Vitamins C and E which makes it a potent anti-aging component in skincare. In the same study, it was found that CBD has the potential to increase collagen levels in the skin. The American Academy of Dermatology also notes the promising effect of CBD in managing psoriasis and eczema.
Since CBD isn’t regulated by the FDA yet, it’s important to look for CBD brands that are verified by a third-party lab and use quality full spectrum CBD oil which is the most potent of its kind.
At Tub Therapy, our CBD bath treats are each infused with 100 mg of full spectrum CBD oil extracted from quality hemp farms in the USA. Each of our product variants are also tested by Desert Valley lab in Arizona, a ADHS and ISO-certified company.
2. CBD and its synergistic effect with warm water
The good old-fashioned warm bath already provides relief, helps you relax your muscles, promotes good sleep, lowers blood pressure, and opens your airways. Is there anything more indulgent than a warm bath? Take all of these familiar benefits and add CBD into the mix for a triple fold effect.
Studies have shown that CBD’s localized effects that come from transdermal absorption are felt immediately at the area of absorption and since heat speeds up the process of absorption into the skin through the pores, this means you're more likely to feel immediate and direct results resulting in an ultra-relaxing soak.
3. CBD bath treats and green-gifting
It’s imperative to give a gift that your giftee will love and use but it’s equally important to give something that doesn't impact the environment. Opting for organic gifts is a mindful and responsible choice for personal and planetary health. This means you are not exposing your giftees to any harsh chemicals while also feeling good about giving something that helps reduce the carbon footprint.
Good news, the way bath bombs and handmade soaps are made just makes them more organic and natural and CBD bath treats are no exception. At Tub Therapy, our CBD bath treats are all handmade using locally sourced and organic ingredients for a natural clean without the harsh chemicals. We’ve carefully selected other natural ingredients into our formula to create a special blend of CBD bath treats that are nutrient-rich, skin-nourishing, sustainably produced, and cruelty-free. Knowing that they aren’t immersing themselves in a tubful of damaging chemicals will make bath time for your loved ones even more tranquilizing.
Even better news, we also ship orders using America’s 100% carbon neutral shipping service for a simple, reliable delivery that keeps the environment healthy. Our shipping partner does this by tapping existing carriers and filling their delivery trucks with our orders to ensure each trip is maximized.
4. CBD for the skeptics
CBD bath bombs and soaps are the perfect way for your skeptic friends and family who want to experience CBD’s effects without ingesting it and while doing something that’s already enjoyable and relaxing on its own, i.e. lounging in the tub or shower.
Tub Therapy CBD bath products are hemp-derived and contain less than 0.3% THC which means they get to enjoy a luxe cleanse in CBD goodness without the angst of getting high. Any mood boosting effects from immersing in a CBD bath are that of feelings of well-being in response to a relaxed mind and body that only a quality bath can give.
The main reason why a CBD bath makes the best gift?
The biggest reason why CBD bath treats are the best pick-me-up gifts is also the simplest - it makes thoughtful presents that show how much you care for the person’s wellness and advocate for their self-care after a challenging time. Although CBD bath bombs and CBD soaps may be a little more expensive than their regular counterparts, a CBD bath might just be the ultimate way to soothe the mind, body, and soul.
If you’re like most people, gift giving may feel like a daunting task - you’ve got friends, family, staff, colleagues, clients, neighbors, and acquaintances to get gifts for but don’t really know what they enjoy. Whether you’re gifting for the holidays or someone’s special day, don’t miss the mark. Treat your giftees with some hempy bath goodies for the gift of chill that will get them toasting to you.
