Whether you have a sea theme in your bathroom or just like the thought of fish in the bathtub these little fish bath bombs are just the thing. They are no harder to make than any other bath bomb. You may actually find they are a little easier to make than the spherical bombs, when making a large batch.
I simply colored these fish bath bombs a nice fresh blue and added cosmetic glitter to the molds before pressing the bath bomb mixture in. Although the fish shaped egg mold I used have two sides and 3-d fish bath bombs could be made with them, I opted to just use one side and keep them flat on the back. This allows for easier display and 2-3 can be tossed into a bath for an adult and 1 or 2 for a child (I try and use less essential oils in my daughter’s bath than my own). I scented these bath bombs with soothing kid safe lavender essential oil, but scent as you like.
This Japanese egg mold that I used to make these cute little fish bath bombs can be bought in a set along with other fun shapes. They are difficult to find in stores here in the U.S., so I suggest just grabbing it off Amazon and saving yourself the time, gas and aggravation that I wasted trying to buy some locally, without success.
