Farmers Market Inspired Products - Blueberries

I would like to show you some options for finding locally grown or created items, but don’t forget that in many towns and cities there may be several markets that you could visit. I just did a quick search around my area and I have come up with several places to visit all summer long.

Downtown Farmers Market that opens Saturday, June – Oct
Murray Farmers Market opens Fridays and Saturdays, Aug- Oct
Park City Farmers Market opens Wednesday, June – Oct
Park City Sunday Market, June – Oct
The People’s Market Sunday, June – Sept
South Jordan Farmers Market Saturday, Aug – Oct
Sugar House Farmers Market Fridays, July- Oct

This is only the beginning so check out your local areas and see when and where your Farmers Market opens and get out early and enjoy this event all summer long.

Today blueberry is my inspiration and I would like to make some Melt and Pour soap with Red Grape and Blueberry Fragrance Oil. I will also be adding in Ground Luffa and doing a swirl of color in the soap.

Collect needed items:

Melt and Pour Soap
Ground Luffa
Lavender Fields Color
Brick Red Color
Mixing Bowls – two

After opening the bucket of Glycerin Soap Base/Melt and Pour Soap, I have cut up several smaller chunks and weighed out 2 pounds of soap. The mold that I’m using is called Rectangle Bar Tray Mold needs two pounds of product to fill.

Since I will be doing a swirl in my soap I have measured 4 oz of soap and 28 oz of soap into separate mixing bowls. Now that it is all melted I will add in the fragrance to each of the soaps, mix well then I will pour the 28 oz amount of the melted soap into the tray. When that is completed I will add into the 4 oz melt and pour soap about a tablespoon of the Luffa and color until I reach my desired color. Then I will pour in the colored soap into the clear soap in the tray until it is all poured. This last part can be done in a few pours allowing the soap to cool a bit and create the swirling effect.

Allow the finished soap in the tray to completely cool before taking out of the mold and cutting. Doesn’t that soap look great?
