During winter, everyone get a craving for fresh berries. But fresh berries are expensive off season. Don’t feel like paying an arm and a leg for a pint of blueberries? Make one of these Blueberry Tart Melt & Pour Soaps instead! Made with Blueberry Jam Fragrance Oil, they smell sweet and juicy.
First, a small layer of brown soap is poured into the Round (Cupcake) Silicone Mold to create the look of a crust. White soap is layered on top, and is finished with blueberry soap embeds and a soap drizzle. The “blueberries” on top are created with the Small 9 Ball Silicone Mold. For this project I used two Small 9 Ball Silicone Molds to create three blueberry embeds for each soap. If you only have one mold, create the embeds in two batches.
Because this soap does involve a few layers, I recommend having a spray bottle of 99% isopropyl alcohol nearby. Spraying alcohol between the layers helps the soap stick together. It’s also great for getting rid of bubbles right after pouring. A thermometer is also handy for melt and pour layers. If the soap is too hot, it can melt the layer below. I recommend pouring the top layers around 120-130 degrees F to avoid melting.
