The Botanomancy CBD Bubble Bar is a brand-new product and is the first of its kind from Lush. It was released alongside the 4:20pm CBD bath bomb back on Christmas Eve, 2020. CBD is short for cannabidiol, cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive compound found in hemp plants.
There has been a lot of research conducted around the use of CBD oil and it is said to have a long list of health-benefits. In particular it helps with stress management and those suffering with anxiety and/or sleep problems.
CBD has also been proven to help people like me, who suffer from medical conditions that cause wide-spread chronic pain. The very reason I first got into Lush Cosmetics was because I was looking for natural alternatives to prescription painkiller medications. With this in mind I didn’t hesitate to buy Botanomancy when it became available.
The Botanomancy CBD bubble bar is the same size as the bestselling bubble bars, Brightside and The Comforter which has certainly pleased the masses. After all everyone likes more for their money! As well as the cannabidiol, Botanomancy also contains patchouli, sandalwood, ginger and dried peppermint leaf and rose petals. Its scent is really herbilicious, earthy and refreshing.
The first time I used the Botanomancy CBD bubble bar I decided to stick half of the bar into my bubble bar sieve, this was way too much and a complete waste. The smallest amount creates more than enough bubbles, you can easily get 6 baths out of one bar, more if your water pressure is strong.
A blanket of fluffy white bubbles doesn’t take very long to form at all. Underneath the bubbles, the water is an earthy green scattered with the dried rose petals.
There is no better feeling than sinking yourself into a nice hot bath after a long day. If I am being honest, like the aforementioned 4:20pm CBD bath bomb, I wouldn’t say I was anymore relaxed than I’d normally be after just an ordinary Lush bath BUT I was relaxed enough to get straight into bed and a good nights sleep followed.
There are some aspects I’d like to tweak to this bubble bar, I personally would prefer it without the dried petals but I’ve seen plenty of people on Instagram who really liked their inclusion.
Other than that I really liked this bubble bar and I hope that Lush decide to bring out a few more CBD products as it’s something I’d love to try more of.
