Holiday survival mode is real, and what’s even more real is holiday survival with the help of CBD bath bombs. As we said in theKush Queen CBD Gift Guide, this time of year is the most wonderful and the busiest season for many of us. The shopping, the travel, the festivities, the weather – they all converge during the holiday season. Which can send us into a flurry of excitement and overwhelm. If we know anything here at Kush Queen, it’s how to keep calm and carry on with the help of our CBD bath bombs.
Here are our top picks for surviving the holidays with CBD Bath Bombs but first a quick recap of why CBD makes sense this time of year.
The Benefits of using CBD Bath Bombs, Holiday Edition
A Full Body CBD Topical– Your skin is your biggest organ, so by submerging your body fully into the CBD-infused water you are experiencing a full-body topical application. Think relaxed muscles, soothed aches and eased tension across your entire body.
Immune System Boost– CBD is a known anti-bacterial. The holiday season typically brings more travel and contact with people (read as more exposure to germs).We like to up our CBD daily intakethis time of year as a preventative measure to keep our endocannabinoid and immune systems nourished.
A 20-Minute Recharge– During this time of year, we often put a stronger emphasis on others rather than ourselves. Whether it’sgoing to every partywe are invited to or squeezing in a last-minute gift-getting errand at the end of the day, the holidays are a hectic time. Doing a once a week CBD infused bath can be those 20 minutes you didn’t know how bad you needed. It’s easy to get swept up in the shuffle, here’s a reminder to take some time to let your body relax and your mind rest.

CBD and Flu Season Prep – Get My 5 Tips For Staying Healthy
Flu season is upon us, there is no denying it! It’s that time of year where a cough and sneeze can send me into deep panic. I’ve been on the fence for years about the flu shot. Do I? Don’t I? It’s kind of crazy that it depends on who you ask. In my current CBD and flu season immune-boosting preparation routine, I stick to the basics.
Here’s a walk through of my immune system boosting routine to ward off colds, flu and other ailments. In my CBD consumption diary you can see what a typical week looks like for me during this time of year.
CBD is My Go To For Immune System Support
One thing is for sure, CBD helps keep myimmune system strongAF. Back when I was on a lot of pharmaceuticals, my immune system was compromised because the medications were affecting my white blood cell count.
This made me prone to catching everything including the dreaded flu. After two bad flu seasons where I was completely taken out for two weeks at a time, I developed a serious CBD and flu season regimen. I am happy to report *knocks on wood* that I have been able to avoid getting the flu for the last two years.
In regards to using CBD in this setting, one of the biggest things I think people miss when it comes to this time of year is that you have to up your daily dose. In the words of Drake “ALL THE WAY UP!”
My CBD and Flu Season 5 Step Prep Breakdown
Serious Hand Washing– This step is surprising always overlooked. If you are out in public, be mindful of regularlywashingscrubbing your hands. I try to go by the 45 second rule and get everything from palms to fingernails.
Essential Oils– It’s no secret I believe in and love using essential oils. Every Kush Queen product is based on targeted effects delivered by essential oils for a variety of uses. My go-to for this time of year is theShield for Immunityblend which is inspired by the 15th-century legend of four thieves.
Baths– Submerging your body in warm water hasmultiple health benefitsthat go well beyond leisure. You’ll find me taking a bath almost every day this time of year.
Vitamins– Having a good balance of minerals and vitamins is crucial to giving your immune system the fuel it needs to fight off infection. I’m not known for having the most balanced diet so I cover the necessities with daily vitamins.
CBD Loading– Think carb loading like before a workout but with CBD. I up my daily dose and use a mix of delivery methods when I’m trying to keep my immune system healthy.
CBD is so much more than making great products to me, it’s also about how you use it within your daily life. So many of us now have access to CBD, but don’t know how much to use. Here’s a week inside my CBD infused life to give you insight into how the cannabinoid works for me!
Olivia Alexander’s CBDConsumption Diary
Sunday November 3, 2019 – A Stay At Home Day 6:15am
My little cloud son,Reggiewakes me up early. After I feed him I dose my coffee with our1000mg Bäre Tincture. One dropper is 33mg of CBD. I also pop in my vitamin gummies as I start my Sunday.
I did chores all day so I am feeling pretty gross and in need of a hot shower! I jump in the shower and use mySoaked shower gel. The rich lather and bright tangie scent invigorate me for the rest of the afternoon. I’m feeling refreshed!
I have 2Gummies RXbefore bed with my nightly edible for sleep. Each CBD gummy is 25mg bringing my dose to 50mg.
Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 100mg of CBD
Monday November 4, 2019 – Typical Workday
After my morning Shower withSoaked, I lather up my face inDefynt. Then follow it up with our alice and olivia x kush queen collabCBD body lotion. Monday morning’s call for a triple threat treatment, chill on the inside means chill on the outside!
A bunch of Monday crap (no need to sugar coat) comes my way and I find myself feeling super stressed. Stress is a KILLER to your immune system and increases your risk of getting the flu. Running a business is non-stop problem solving and adapting, so I keep a 1000mg Bäre in my purse at all times. When I feel anxiety and stress coming on, I have 2 droppers of1000mg Bärefor a 60mg dose of CBD.
A day like today calls for a high dose CBD bath bomb! I soak in our100mg Shield For Immunity CBD bath bomb. This bath contains a mix of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils known to boost the immune system. The cinnamon really gets me every time and I feel so deeply relaxed, I head straight to bed.
Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 220mg of CBD
Tuesday November 5, 2019 – Work From Home Day
It’s an early morning with my puppy son and I slept wrong. My neck is KILLING ME. For me that means a topical and oral approach. First I applyMelt CBDLotion to my neck. Then, I take 5, 25mgCBD GummiesRx. One of my favorite benefits of CBD is the fact that it’s a known anti-inflammatory agent. Anytime I have inflammation, I increase my dose.
I’m not feeling so great, so I decide to work from home today. Acknowledging that my pain has reached a more serious level, I medicate with THC.
My energy is low and the bed is calling my name. I rub my body down with alice and olivia x kush queen cbd body lotion and the lavender helps ease my mind and drift to sleep.
Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 180mg of CBD, 164mg of THC
Wednesday November 6, 2019 – Crazy But Typical Workday
Full transparency here! I had a crazy day at the office and forgot to log my consumption. I know I had 2 CBD gummies in the morning.
Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 50mg of CBD
Thursday November 7, 2019 – Crazy But Typical Workday
For the second day in a row, my day took me over. I used to really get down on myself when this happened, but I’m practicing acknowledgment and acceptance.
I need a CBD bath. After sitting in traffic all day, my body and neck is a mess. So I draw a bath for one of our new high dose 200mg CBD Bath Bombs in theRelaxblend.
I forgot my morning dose of CBD, so I double up on my night dose. One full dropper of Bäre and 3, 25mg CBD GummiesRx put me right to sleep.
Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 300mg of CBD
Friday November 8, 2019 – Late Night
I realize I’ve been in contact with people that were sick so I add an emergen-C to my morning routine. In the shower, I scrub my entire body with ourRenew CBD Sugar scruband then I wear ourCBD primer Foto Blurunder my makeup for the day.
Today was looonnngggg. I got home way past my bedtime. When this happens, I have a mandatory before bed bath and then lather down with Melt CBD Lotion. I use a200mg Sleep CBD Bath Bomband the level of relaxation and ease I felt before bed is why I make Kush Queen CBD products!
I write this series to help people understand how I consume CBD. While we see lots of information about CBD in general or what pain points to use CBD for, most people (even daily users) are still trying to figure out how much CBD to take.
When it comes to CBD and Flu Season, I up my daily dose intake and check in with myself regularly. Stay healthy out there friends!
If I had to pick one Kush Queen CBD product to use during this time of year, it would hands down be our Shield for Immunity CBD Bath Bomb.
Introducing Kush Queen 100mg and 200mg CBD Bath Bombs
That’s right, you asked for a high dose CBD bath bomb and we listened! In 2018, we introduced the Kush Queen Product Review System which turned out to be a game-changer for us. We don’t just want to make CBD health and wellness products we love, we want to make CBD products that YOU love and align with your needs! Day after day, the reviews poured in and one of the repeat customer requests was for high dose CBD bath bombs. It was clear that Kush Queen customers love our CBD bath bombs but you wanted and needed more CBD.
Mid-year, we put our lab team to work on our highest dose bath bombs EVER! With great excitement we introduce our 100mg and 200mg CBD bath bombs in our best selling blendsRelax,Relieve,Sleep,Awaken,Love, andCitrus.
Why Should You Use A High Dose CBD Bath Bombs?
At this point, it’s safe to say that most people have heard about the benefits of using CBD. Everyone from Kim Kardashian to Martha Stewart’s dog is using some version of CBD to aid in daily wellness. And if you are reading this, we bet you are too!
When considering the switch from using a lower dose to a higher dose CBD bath bomb, ask yourself, “Why am using a CBD Bath Bomb?”
We recommend choosing the 100mg CBD Bath Bomb if you:
Have trouble getting to sleep.
Had an extra hard workout.
Like using CBD daily and want to up your dose.
You didn’t feel the body high from the 25mg CBD Bath Bomb.
Indulging in a self-care day.
We recommend choosing the 200mg CBD Bath Bomb if you:
Are trying to take the edge off and induce relaxation.
Working to fight off an infection or inflammation.
Recovering from an injury or trauma
Detoxing or rebooting your body
Some of us use CBD formuscle relaxation, while others use CBD to help withmental clarity. We suggest starting small and increasing your CBD dose over time.
What Makes Kush Queen High Dose CBD Bath Bombs the BEST CBD bath bombs?
Kush Queen CBD Bath Bombs Are Handmade and Fresh
Every Kush Queen CBD bath bomb is handmade in California by real humans. Each week, our production team makes small batches of our bath bombs by mixing, forming and packing them from start to finish at our facility. We keep our batch sizes small and cycle through on-hand inventory quickly to ensure that every CBD bath bomb is fresh and fizzy when you drop it in the tub.
One of our goals in developing our unique CBD bath bomb formula is for our bath bombs to contain minimal ingredients. So many bath bombs on the market can negatively affect a woman’s PH due to the numerous ‘non-clean’ ingredients. Being a womxn founded company, we wanted our bath bombs to be safe for the most sensitive of bodies.
All doses (25mg, 100mg, 200mg) of Kush Queen CBD bath bombs contain:
100% organic essential oils, type varies by bath bomb blend
Cannabidiol (CBD), mg amount varies per dose
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
When using any of our doses, you’ll feel and smell the difference in our CBD bath bombs. All of the ingredients work together to create an experience that you only get with Kush Queen CBD Bath Bombs.
Full Body CBD Topical
Our bath bombs workbecause we use targeted essential oils and CBD to create the entourage effect. Your skin is your biggest organ, so by submerging your body fully into the water your experiencing a full-body topical CBD application.
This experience is completely different from placing arelief lotionon a small localized pain point. With our high dose CBD bath bombs, your body is fully submerging in a 100mg or 200mg dose of CBD. And your body reacts like a sponge soaking up all the ingredient goodness Kush Queen CBD bath bombs offer which allows for more absorption of the CBD.
CBD bath bombs are our flagship product because of its superior delivery method.
Grab a higher dose CBD bath bomb and you’ll leave the tub feeling like you had a full body massage!
When Kush Queen decided to open itself up to Wholesale clients, we had no idea the effect it would have on us. We have been so inspired by the overwhelming number of small business owners who show up and support us, and the Kush Queen brand. We count ourselves lucky to have some powerful, educated, cannabis activists all over the country sharing our products with their customers. We just couldn’t resist sharing some of these hardworking entrepreneurs with you!
Today we are featuring one of our very first Wholesalers, My Green Room LLC out of North Carolina. Thanks to their fearless, passionate and kind-hearted leader, Joellyn Woodward, a brand new audience of people have been able to learn about and experience the benefits of CBD!
Joellyn, the owner of My Green Room, is a 10-year cancer survivor, Mother, Grandmother, and Newlywed!! Congrats are most definitely in order!! Besides her obvious love of all things Hemp, she enjoys NCAA Basketball, Krishna and bonfires. Her desire to help others has been life long, and it is no surprise that she found a way to do just that, every day, at her shop.
How it Started
Joellyn didn’t choose to open her shop on a whim. After using cannabis to help with her Cancer, Chronic PTSD, Bipolar 1 and Chronic Panic Attacks, she knew she had to spread the word. She put in the time to learn about the plant and its benefits so that she could share her knowledge with others. She had dreamt of opening a Cannabis dispensary for years, but because of the Cannabis laws in North Carolina, it just didn’t seem possible. During a family vacation to Myrtle Beach, she stumbled upon a little shop selling CBD products and felt a rush of joy. She knew the time had come. Hemp was federally legal and she was ready to start selling! She did the research, found brands she believed in and by January of 2018 she was in business.
My Green Room started out selling at Craft Shows and Bike Rallies. Joellyn shared her favorite CBD products with a new audience and people took notice. After stumbling upon Kush Queens CBD Bath Bombs by a fluke chance in early 2018 she knew they would become a staple among her customers and has been carrying a variety of Kush Queen products ever since.
In the Summer of 2018, My Green Room officially opened their first brick and mortar shop. A 400 square foot spot in the back of a building. Less than 6 weeks later they were upgrading to a space double the size, right out front! On April 20th of 2019, they made yet another upgrade, this time to a 3,000 square foot facility! They are home to the first (and currently only) hemp smoking bar and lounge in the area. Their rapid growth is proof that people are falling in love with CBD, and there is no slowing down in sight.
It is important to note that running a CBD business is no easy feat. While hemp is federally legal there are still a number of roadblocks facing brand owners and retail shops. From having her merchant accounts shut down, her money withheld from her, her social media accounts being deleted, high percentage fees at every turn and pressure from local law enforcement, Joellyn has experienced many of the struggles first hand. Lucky for us, and for her loyal customers, she can’t be stopped! She rolls with the punches, bounces back stronger and continues to push forward. Why? Because she believes in and understands the value of what she and her team have to offer their community.
Not only has CBD allowed Joellyn herself to improve her mental health, quit tobacco and get off a variety of medications, but it has allowed her to help so many others do the same.
“Watching people start living a better quality of life makes all the spreadsheets worth it,” says Joellyn. My Green Room has helped 29 people (and counting) regain sobriety from hard drugs and pills. They have created jobs in a small and struggling county. Every day their team is educating people on the many ways CBD can improve lives. In turn, real peoples lives are being changed, for the better. Joellyn says “The best reward is hearing customer ‘s success stories.” That, right there, is the payoff.
For the Love of Kush Queen
When it comes to Kush Queen productsRelieve,MeltandDefyntare among the favorites at My Green Room. Joellyn told us that Relieve was the first Kush Queen product she ever tried, she fell in love immediately and since using these products her skin feels healthier than ever! We freaking LOVE that!
When asked if she wanted to add a little something extra, Joellyn said this…
“Kush Queen is family. Being a female business owner, I look to the Queens as a model. KQ has extended us so much love, support and goes a million extra miles. With my husband needing a full liver transplant, the Kush Queens reached out to help. My dispensary would not be nearly as successful if not from the incredible guidance and support KQ extends to My Green Room.”
*We are Blushing*
Honestly, there are no words to truly say Thank You to Joellyn and the My Green Room team. They have stood by our brand through thick and thin. When we were overwhelmed and working hard to expand with the growing demand of CBD, they were patient, kind and understanding. This is why we are so grateful to Wholesalers like My Green Room. We hope that you will reach out and show them a little love as well!

Last Friday I stepped outside and was instantly met with the first 90 plus degree day of summer. My edges curled back, my thigh gap got sticky and for me, that can only signal one thing. The beginning of golf season! Yes, you heard that right, golf. The sport that has generally been associated with rich old white men, is the sport that this little brown girl has been playing since she was 7. Growing up in the scorching Texas heat, and then playing for four years during college in Georgia, I’ve had my share of long achy nights trying to recover from carrying golf bags for 6 hours each day. I wish I had Kush Queen back then to help me with the stress of playing golf, as well as a CBD post workout routine to help with muscle soreness recovery.
3 Steps To My CBD Post Workout Recovery
It never fails that the morning after playing a round of golf I wake up feeling sore all over. The kind of soreness that makes you question why you ever choose to move your body in the first place. My neck is tight, my shoulders burn and my head hurts so badly I feel hungover. That’s when I know it’s time for my CBD post workout routine. Now that I’m an adult I’ve incorporated a routine for getting rid of soreness. This plan also works as a killer self-care routine after a stressful day of work or play!
Step 1: Add CBD to your morning smoothie
I’m a creature of habit and that extends to my food. I have the same smoothie every morning. I know that might sound monotonous but try it out for yourself, and I think you’ll understand why I’m so crazy about it.
1 cup of frozen Blueberries
1 frozen banana
2 tbs of nut butter (I prefer Justin’s Honey Almond Butter)
Dash of Cinnamon or to taste
1 tsp honey (or you can soak dates, just make sure they’re pliable before blending)
Blend until smooth. Not only will the smoothie help to give you nutrients to feed your depleted muscles, but adding CBD will help with the inflammation from your workout and relieve any stress you might have so that you can start your day in a more calm state of mind. Bonus!
Step 2: Take a morning bath. I know, crazy right?
Who says baths are just for the evening? There’s nothing more luxurious to me than taking a hot bath, lighting some candles and putting on a podcast at 10 am on a Saturday. Well, that is until you add in our next step. Since my back is feeling like it’s going to start tweaking, I reach for the Kush Queen CBD bath bomb inRELIEVE. With 25mg of Pure CBD and notes of Organic clove, birch, and rosemary, this bath bomb helps me create the spa of my dreams in the reality of my apartment.
Step 3: Rub Melt on your aching muscles
After you finish soaking, treat your muscles to the cooling sensation of Kush Queen’s CBD Lotion,Melt. As soon as the Melt touches my skin I can feel my senses relaxing. Spoiler alert, after steps 1-3, my CBD post workout routine has me feeling like putty and so ready to dig into step 4.
Step 4: Stretch!
I’m a big believer in foam rolling. It hurts like hell, but once your muscles are nice and relaxed from your previous pampering, it feels like the perfect cherry on a day full of recovery. Stretching helps to keep your muscles loose and warmed up. It gives me an opportunity to breathe and clear my mind.
You don’t have to be a golfer to have a CBD post workout recovery routine. Try this out after your next crazy hard CrossFit or spin class. We ask a lot of our bodies and we need to make sure that we’re pouring love and healing back into it.

Hi, yes, I am talking about tea again, won’t you join me?
Honestly, coffee gets all the spotlight, but I am her to remind you that tea should not be overlooked. It can give you a gentle caffeine boost when needed, or it can lull you to sleep. It can be served hot, iced, dressed up like a fancy latte or turned into cookies. The herbal benefits alone should be inspiration enough to start incorporating tea into your life, and the versatility it has to offer is an added bonus.
Obviously here at Kush Queen, we like to find all the ways to add CBD to our day, so here I am. The ways in which to utilize tea, much like CBD are endless, and I found some tasty (and some unconventional) tea-inspired recipes that you should definitely add CBD to.
It is honestly as easy as adding a few droppers of Bare Daily Wellness to the recipe to achieve your desired dosage. Pay attention to serving size and then choose how many milligrams of CBD you would like per serving. Each dropper of ourOriginal Bare CBD Tinctureoffers just over 16mg’s of CBD, so you can use that to determine how many droppers you will need.
After much research, thank you Pinterest, I have found 12 unique and enticing Tea-Inspired recipes that I think you should definitely try and definitely add CBD to. I was inspired by our very ownCBD Bath Bomb Tea Collection, Obvi, so these recipes will be incorporating Matcha, Earl Grey, and Chai teas.
While green popcorn may seem a little strange, It sounds delicious! I would recommend adding yourBare Daily Wellness dropsto the Matcha topping blend. And while this recipe calls for making stovetop popcorn, which if you can, probably tastes way better, but feel free to make the Matcha topping and toss with your favorite microwave popcorn option!
The green color of these cookies in 100% natural from the Matcha powder! SO fun! These would be great for a Halloween Party, St.Pattys day, or if we are being honest, a basic Tuesday. You will want to add in yourCBD tincturewith your butter and take it easy. Adding too much oil may alter the consistency of the cookies. I would recommend starting with 2-4 droppers for the recipe to see how they turn out. OR you can replace half the butter with thisCannabutter Recipe.
The citrus addition to this Matcha smoothie makes it bright and refreshing. While fall is just around the corner, the heat is still kicking, and this is a great way to cool down while enjoying a sweet treat and getting in loads of health benefits. You will want to blend all of the ingredients according to the recipe, THEN add in 1-2 droppers ofKush Queens Bare Daily Wellnessand pulse for a few more seconds until fully incorporated. Pour it up and enjoy!
When you want all the goodness of a smoothie, but are in a spoon kind of mood, in comes the smoothie bowl. My favorite way to trick my brain into thinking I am eating ice cream. This recipe takes the goodness of Match and combines it with frozen bananas and avocado to bring you an ultra-creamy smoothie bowl experience. Top with Chia seeds for a health boost, and whatever fresh fruits, granola, and nuts you’re vibing with! You can add yourCBD oilto this recipe by blending it into the smoothie, or by adding it to Granola if that is one of your chosen toppings.
Energy balls offer a foolproof way to add protein to your diet while also satisfying your sweet tooth. You can easily adapt the ingredients to your taste preference, but this Chai tea inspired version seems pretty near perfection. Add 4-6 droppers ofBare Daily Wellness CBD oilinto this recipe with the wet ingredients and your energy balls will have 4-6mg of CBD each.
Oatmeal cookies remind me of my childhood. Each bite is packed with nostalgia. Adding in Chai Spices honestly feels like the universe merging my current self with my child self to remind me that we are the still the same person. Too deep for an oatmeal cookie recipe? I don’t think so. I recommend removing ½ tbsp of butter from this recipe and adding ½ tbsp ofKush Queens Bare Tincture.
When you need a quick and fulfilling breakfast, oatmeal has your back. Protein-packed and unbelievably adaptable. There is an oatmeal option for almost everyone! This oatmeal takes the smooth flavors of vanilla and spices it up with some Chai. It’s a comforting combination to start your day off right. I would recommend trying thisCBD Whipped Creamrecipe to top your oatmeal! You deserve a dessert for breakfast kind of day! I promise.
Pancakes are one of my ultimate comfort foods. Cake, for breakfast, duh! It always felt like I was getting away with something when I would sit down for a pancake breakfast growing up. As an adult, I have continued the tradition, proudly. These pancake stacks are a twist of the classic. Adding Chai Spices and Sweet Potato really switches up the vibe bringing you a pancake with a deeper depth of flavor. Include 2 Droppers ofBare Daily Wellnesswith the olive oil that already in this recipe. An easy peasy way to add some chill to your morning meal.
Oh Dear Lord. This cake looks ridiculous! Subtle and decadent at the same time. A perfect flavor pallet you can turn to year around. The addition of the figs really got me. I’m a fig girl for sure! While this may be a more labor-intensive recipe, it will be worth the effort. For this sweet treat, I would add 2-4 droppers ofCBD oilinto the frosting recipe with the butter.
Granola, like Earl Grey Tea, is incredibly versatile. It is simple to make, and easy to adapt to all tastes. You can then add it to parfaits, ice cream, smoothie bowls, serve it with milk, or enjoy it dry, fresh out of the oven. Those are just my personal favorite ways to enjoy granola, there are so many tasty uses for granola! Adding CBD to this recipe could not be easier! Just add 3-6 droppers ofBare Tinctureto the mixture and toss well before baking.
This is an interesting flavor combination that really works. The smooth flavors of Earl Grey balance out the tart sweetness of the Blackberries. If you can get a hold of some fresh blackberries before they go out of season, I would definitely recommend stocking up! Just like with our Matcha Smoothie, you will want to fully blend your smoothie and THEN add yourCBD oiland puls for a few more seconds until fully incorporated.
If you are looking for a splurge-worthy treat to keep you cool, look no further. Loaded with a sweet and smooth flavor, this thick and creamy recipe can easily be adapted for a dairy-free diet by replacing just a few ingredients. Just like with your smoothies, you will want to blend this recipe per the instructions, THEN add yourCBD tinctureand pulse again for a few more seconds until fully blended. You can also top with thisCBD whipped Creamfor added herbal benefits and even more decadence.

I am most definitely a coffee person, but I do love me a good cup of tea. I take mine with milk and honey served up in my favorite Alice in Wonderland mug. It is an experience for me and has become part of my self-care routine. Drinking tea has so many benefits for our health and wellbeing, and every type of tea offers a little something special for you and your body to enjoy. You can sip for energy, sip for stress relief, sip for a good night’s sleep and even for your skin and organ health. That is a lot of benefits! So when I heard that Kush Queen launched a tea-inspiredCBD Bath Bombs Collection, my heart fluttered. I can bathe in my tea too? Yes, Please!
But wait? Do I want to bathe in tea? Does it have any benefits as a topical or is it just for fun? These were some of the questions swimming through my mind, so I, of course, decided to do a little research. What did I learn? Bathing in your tea… highly recommended. Many of the properties in tea leaves also have amazing benefits for your skin and wellness. When paired with the already beneficial ingredients that make upKush Queen CBD bath bombs– Like High-Quality CBD, Epsom Salt, Baking soda, and essential oils – the benefits are only increased!
So what are these benefits I speak of? I will get to that, but first I want to chat about Dry Brushing. If you have not heard of Dry Brushing, it is definitely something worth looking into. It is the simple act of using a natural fiber brush, preferably with a long handle, to massage the skin without moisture. Starting at your feet you will gently rub your skin clockwise in a circular motion, slowly working your way upward. Not only is this process relaxing, but it is a great way to prepare your body to receive maximum benefits from your bath time. It exfoliates the skin, increases blood flow, stimulates the lymph nodes, detoxes the body, and can even reduce the appearance of cellulite. Your skin will feel fresh and new before you submerge yourself into that tub sized cup of tea. Such a great way to take your self-care to the next level.
Matcha Tea actually contains chlorophyll which is a wonderful detoxifier and has been known to remove harmful toxins from the body as well as fight free radicals. Matcha may also assist in decreasing your body’s sebum production. This can help to treat and prevent body acne and may even add a layer of protection from harmful UV rays.
Earl Grey Tea contains Vitamins B1, B2, E and H, all known for their abilities to keep your skin feeling soft and smooth. You will also find Antioxidants in this tea which will keep your skin healthy and hydrated while fighting those pesky free radicals.
Chai Tea is my favorite tea, and not just because I’m basic! The cinnamon and Clove in your Chai tea (and Bath Bombs) can help to improve blood circulation which will reduce swelling and puffiness and give you a nice glowy complexion. This tea is also ultra-hydrating and may assist in reducing the signs of aging skin!
Pour yourself a cup of tea to enjoy while you soak. Your skin will receive all those amazing benefits from the inside out. (And you can feel really fancy while you do it).
A Spice Girls playlist may also enhance these benefits by filling you up with joy and empowerment vibes.
For those of you who prefer not to soak in the tub surrounded by loose tea, which I personally LOVE, that does not mean you can’t enjoy these Classy AF Bath Bombs! Grab yourself a large organza drawstring bag, place the bath bomb inside it, and add to your tub. You will get all the Bath Bomb goodness, but the bag will hold onto the tea leaves for you. Like a Tea Bag for your tub.
I hope that you found some helpful self-love inspiration here, and are excited to start your own tea inspired skin-care routine. However you choose to incorporate tea, your body will thank you for all those tasty benefits!

The solar plexus chakra, also known as the third chakra, is located behind the navel. It’s Sanskrit name,Manipura, means “illustrious gem” and is symbolized by a yellow 10 petaled circle with an upside-down triangle in its center. The last of the physical chakras, the solar plexus is home to our feelings of personal empowerment, control, and abundance. The “gut feeling” we often refer to, when our intuition communicates through our bodies, stems from this chakra.
Keeping this chakra in balance is key to feeling a sense of security, self-confidence, and self-assurance. The solar plexus is associated with the fire element and signifies our ability to take action and build momentum in our lives. The phrase “being fired up” is a nod to the sensation of heat in the solar plexus when we feel excitement and enthusiasm.
Imbalances in this area can manifest as lack of control and fear of being overpowered. Perfectionism, people-pleasing, and overactivity/being busy are often signs of a shrunken solar plexus. Obsession with gaining power, controlling behaviors, and an overinflated ego is associated with an enlarged third chakra.
Because our chakras operate as a holistic system of energy centers, balancing each one is essential to overall wellbeing. For a refresh on how to balance first and second chakras, check out the blogs on therootandsacral from earlier this year.
As always, there is no single way to maintain balance in our lives, we can utilize a variety of alternative therapies to reach a homeostatic state.
Trust Your Gut
Based on its location with respect to the body, the stomach and digestive system are associated with this energy center. Issues with weight, gastrointestinal problems, and poor gut health are symptoms of an imbalanced solar plexus. Good nutrition is a tool for optimizing all chakras, especially the third. Foods that enhance the solar plexus are:
Citrus fruits (especially lemon)
Choosing fresh, organic foods when possible and avoiding processed foods, refined sugar, alcohol, nicotine, and animal by-products can help clear a blocked solar plexus.
Get Fired Up
Since the solar plexus is associated with the fire element, building heat in the body through movement increases clarity and balance in this area. Yoga poses, like Boat, Bow, and any Warrior pose, activate this energy center, while restorative poses like Child’s Pose and Corpse, or Savasana, help calm and soothe it.
Exercises that work the core, like Pilates and Barre, create fire energy in the solar plexus and strengthen more than just our abs–they increase our sense of self and personal mastery. Other heat building workouts, like High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and kickboxing, help build a sense of empowerment and self-confidence with practice and growth over time.
Scents of Empowerment
Targeted aromatherapy is a super simple way to bring the solar plexus into balance at home and on the go. Try these essential oils in a diffuser or DIY spray for third chakra healing:
If you want to clear your space and balance your energy, add the plant equivalents of the above essential oils to a sage bundle for smudging.
If you really want to create a vibe, there’s a bath bomb experience for that! Combine the Crystal CultManipura bath bombwith Kush Queen’sCitrus bath bombin hot water for a heat-inducing, sense-awakening soak. Choose a mantra, like “I Can” to meditate on whileplaying gentle musictargeted toward the solar plexus.
After your Citrus Chakra bath, you’ll have a pink aventurine to add to your crystal collection. Other stones to help balance the third chakra include:
Citrine: Associated with fire element; activates self-confidence; increases mental clarity and courage; acceptance of abundance
Green Calcite: Fire & water elements; grounds and focuses energy; promotes healthy gallbladder, liver, pancreas, and intestine; helps adjust to change
Gold Tiger’s Eye: Fire element; creates a sense of safety and protection; helps with remembering dreams and mental clarity; release jealousy and build self-confidence; invites blessing and good fortune
When choosing crystals for healing, finding stones that speak to you is most important. Above all, crystals are tools to help strengthen your intuition and relationship to self.
A healthy solar plexus is your best ally for slaying it at work and in life. I hope this blog helps you discover your power and build a practice that works in favor of your highest good. Namaste, Queens!
