How to Make DIY CBD Bath Soak by Papa & Barkley

If you haven’t had a nice, warm bath in a while, now might just be the time. Whether you’re feeling under the weather, need some post-workout muscle relief, or just want to relax after a long day, a CBD bath always does the trick. While a nice bubble bath is great, we like to add a something extra to our time in the tub.

We know fancy bath soaks can get pricey, so if you’re trying not to break the bank, we’ve got a DIY CBD bath soak that will do the trick – and you only need four ingredients: Epsom salt, Anise seeds, Lavender, and Papa & Barkley’s Releaf Body Oil. While this isn’t exactly how we make our Papa & Barkley Releaf Soak, it’s great alternative you can easily make at home.


  • 2 cups Epsom salt
  • 3 Tbsp. Anise Seeds
  • 3 Tbsp. Lavender
  • 15 pumps of Papa & Barkley Releaf Body Oil

These four simple ingredients will keep you feeling soothed and relaxed no matter what comes your way.

Epsom Salt

Epsom salt aka Magnesium Sulfate is the OG bath accessory. It’s great for relaxing muscles, minor aches, cramping, headaches and migraine s, and provides whole body comfort when you need it most.

Anise Seed

The oil that is produced by anise seeds (otherwise known as star anise) is a powerhouse of comfort! Not only is the oil full of thymol, terpineol, and anethole, which is used for treating coughs and flu-like symptoms, but it can also help improve digestion, alleviate cramps, and reduce nausea.


Ah, lavender, it is the epitome of relaxation, so it is a must in this DIY bath soak. Lavender not only smells amazing, but it’s antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties aid in digestion, can relieve headaches, muscle soreness, and of course, keep you feeling calm.

Papa & Barkley Releaf Body Oil 

Last, but not least, Papa & Barkley’s Releaf Body Oil will add that special something you need to completely relax your mind and your body. Their clean, whole plant infusion process maintains the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and phytonutrients so you get all the benefits of the cannabis plant. Plus, they blend in all-natural essential oils like eucalyptus, tea tree, and peppermint, and moisturizing coconut, vitamin E, and jojoba oils, which will hydrate and soothe your entire body.  

For those of you in California looking to add a little THC to your bath check out our 1:3 Releaf Body Oil. Same great whole plant and full spectrum benefits but with THC so that you can find relief from physical discomfort while you soak.  

So, grab your favorite book, set up your laptop (safely!), or listen to a soothing meditation while you revel in this soothing DIY CBD bath soak.
