Honey Rebatch Soap

I recently made a plain unscented cold process soap with the idea of rebatching it. I wanted a blank slate to start with instead of scraps that are already scented and colored. I let one pound of the soap sit and cure for a month before the rebatch. I grated the soap into a crock pot, added 1/4 cup of coconut milk and and 1 teaspoon of honey. One of the advantages of rebatching is to add luxury ingredients like oils, milks, herbs and sensitive essential oils.

I put the crockpot on high and covered it. I let it cook for about 20-30 minutes before I began stirring it every 5 minutes. Turn off the heat once it is melted enough to mix easily. You can choose to stick blend it but I decided against that.

I used a chai tea fragrance for this, It will cause some discoloration which should be interesting contrast. I used some pearly white mica to ensure the tan wouldn’t be too dark.

 

 

Valencia Orange Rebatched Soap

My box of soap trimmings was finally full so I decided to make a rebatch soap. This type of soap is made with scraps or purposefully with unscented soap to add herbs, oils and delicate fragrances.

I added charcoal to make it more of a definite grey color. I chose valencia orange essential oil for this soap because I cant get this scent to come through in hot or cold process soap.
