Sip While You Soak With CBD Infused Drinks
Posted on May 21 2018
There’s nothing quite like a long, hot soak in the tub at the end of a busy day. As your muscles relax, it’s almost as if the days troubles just melt away under the surface of the water...
But while bathing is incredibly relaxing, what you may not realize is that the benefits of submerging yourself in warm water actually have a heap of health benefits too!
Bathing regularly helps to calm a busy mind, slow accelerated aging (caused by stress, boo!), and lower blood pressure.
Of course you want to set the mood when you enjoy some pamper time and a few candles go a long way in creating an atmosphere of complete and utter relaxation.
It’s also important to keep hydrated while you sweat, but water can be a little boring…
That’s why today, we’re excited to bring you two awesome CBD infused drink recipes that you can sip while you soak to really elevate your bath time!
Verte Essentials multi-purpose oils
Be prepared to be blown away!
Our friends at Verte Essentials have beautiful artfully crafted botanical blends that can be used on the skin OR added to your favorite drink recipe!
Infused with powerful antioxidants and skin loving ingredients to provide a dewy, luminous glow, these same ingredients will flood your body with nutrients to protect your health and fight the signs of aging from the inside out.
While it’s too hard for us to choose our favorite, for bathtime we do highly recommend their Esprit de Rose facial mist infused with calming and aromatic rose and nutrient rich hemp to nourish your skin inside and out!
ROSE MOJITO 🍹
- 1 ounce fresh lime juice
- 2 heaping teaspoons superfine sugar
- 12 fresh mint leaves, torn, plus a sprig for garnish
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 4 ounces off-dry rosé (like one made from Grenache)
- 1 ounce club soda
- ¾ dropper full Esprit de Rose facial mist
- Tall glass
- Spoon for stirring
Stir together lime juice and sugar until sugar dissolves. Add the mint leaves and muddle them into the lime juice. Add a little ice, stir for 15 seconds, then add rosé, remaining ice, facial mist, and club soda. Stir again and garnish with mint. Recipe inspired by Food & Wine
Cordial Organics Bitters
Cordial Organics is another company we love as they specialize in clean beauty products formulated with the healing properties of CBD.
Their powerful blend of whole flower herbs and essential oils are not only tasty, they will leave you feeling energized with a renewed sense of balance.
They have gorgeous drink recipes on their Instagram page, @cordialorganics, so we thought we’d share a margarita recipe, perfect for this time of year
HIBISCUS MARGARITA 🍹
- 1 ounce hibiscus tea
- 11/2 ounces fresh lime juice
- 2 TBSP simple syrup (or more to taste)
- 2 ounces blanco tequila
- 1 full dropper of celebrate bitters
- Lime slices, coarse himalayan sea salt
- Old fashioned glass
- Cocktail shaker
Add all ingredients into a shaker with some ice. Do a quick shake. Strain and pour over ice into glass. Rim your glass with salt and garnish with lime. Voila!
Finally, choose your soak wisely…
Once you have your drink of choice prepared and you’re ready to run your bath, be sure to pour in a product that will love your skin and not expose it to synthetic ingredients.
Reverence Bath Salt is the perfect pairing for your soak and sip session. It provides a calming blend of mineral rich salts and clay to enhance your bath ritual. We also suggest trying a few drops of Crave Alchemy Body Oil in the tub for silky smooth skin. Combine with fresh flower petals and a scented candle to take it to the next level!
