17 DIY Bath Bomb Recipes to Revolutionize Your Bath Time

We all love Lush bath bombs, but we're also well-acquainted with the fact that they can get expensive -- which is where DIY comes in, of course. It turns out that it's actually pretty easy to make your own bath bombs -- most are made with baking soda and citric acid (which is what makes it so satisfyingly fizzy) and not much more.

But some evidence suggests the plant compound found in hemp and marijuana, two varieties of the cannabis plant, may ease pain, anxiety, sleepiness, inflammation, nausea, and, in the right dose from a doctor and in combination with other medicinal compounds found in the cannabis plant, may even treat everything from seizures to withdrawal.   read more

Neck Hair Is the New Thing the Internet Wants You to Be Self-Conscious About

Women's body hair has been on the table for discussion and analysis -- as well as the pressure to do something with it -- pretty much since the dawn of time. Specifically, the female form in many ancient cultures has historically been shown as fully hairless from the eyebrows down.
