Here are our top bath bomb mold choices
Pros - This bath bomb mold set comes in a pack of 24 so if you are making a lot of bath bombs at a time, then this is a good choice. We like how there are three different sizes in this set. If you are selling, you have more size options to offer your customers at different price points. This set also comes with bags to help keep your bath bombs fresh. The molds are made from food quality aluminum. The smooth surface will help release the bath bombs easily so this is a good set for beginners.
Cons - This set comes with the molds only. No instructions are included. The bags are not shrink wrap bags so you will need a ribbon to tie them up. Hand wash only. Can dent if you are tapping too hard to get the bath bomb released.
Pros - This totally adorable set contains 10 metal bath bomb molds in 4 different sea-inspired shapes. We especially love the starfish! These molds are made of food grade aluminum and are easy to clean with just soap and water. Your bath bombs should come out very easily thanks to the polished finish. Shrink wrap bags and a small shink wrap tool is included in this kit.
Cons - Hand wash only. Some of the bags are too small to fit the larger sized molds. This set does not have instructions in English.
Pros - If you want to give a silicone mold a try, these might be a good choice for you. This is a set of two that is made from food grade silicone. Silicone is ideal because it's easy to clean (will go right into the dishwasher) and extremely durable. The cavity sizes are just under 2 inches. The floral designs are so delicate and pretty. Perfect for a spring/summer craft show or gift idea. Do you sell bath bombs? Try making a bunch of these and sell them ready for display in a glass jar with a ribbon.
Cons - Silicone molds require a bit more patience when removing the bath bomb. Bath bombs come out best when they are completely dry, so you may need to order a few extras to be productive.

This huge mold is made of stainless steel which is the very best quality mold you can buy. This mold is for serious bath bomb makers. It will not break or corrode.
