This is a cute recipe that only needs a doughnut mold. I cut up blue soap to resemble blueberries, so you don't even need a special mold for those.
Blueberry Oatmeal Doughnut Soap Tutorial
This blueberry oatmeal exfoliating soap turned out so cute! It's melt and pour soap, so it's actually a fairly easy soap project to make at home. I scented it with a natural blueberry fragrance oil, and it smells amazing!
You will need:
Make the blue bits
Start by melting 2 ounces of soap in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. Add blue colorant. Pour into a rectangle soap mold or other flat mold. Let sit until hard then cut into small pieces.
Melt the soap
Melt the rest of the soap in the microwave at 30 second intervals. Add the oatmeal and fragrance oil. Stir well. Place a layer of blue soap on the bottom of your mold. Place some flat and stand some up.
Add more blue pieces
Pour the white soap about half way. Add more blue pieces. The finish pouring the white. Spray the top with rubbing alcohol.
Let set up
Let the soap set up completely. Carefully remove from the mold. If it doesn't come out, place the mold in the freezer for 5-10 minutes and try again. You might have to tap the bottom with a wooden spoon. Trim the bottoms if needed so they are level. If you use a silicone mold, they will come out much easier.
I love how cute these turned out! The blue bits are all through it, so you'll see them as you use the soap.
This gently exfoliates, so it's a good bath bar of soap.
