My first rebatch
Updated: Jun 30, 2020
One of the things I quickly learned in my first year of making soap is that sometimes you’re going to screw up a step and you’ll need to re-batch. I have not yet run into a unsuccessful rematch. I mean, the soap will be useful but probably won’t be As aesthetically pleasing like planned . So in an attempt of salvaging a soap for
use, I had to learn how to re-batch. it’s going to happen to you! But good thing is most of the time it is an easy fix.
scent (essential oil)
about 1/2 cup water or goat milk
soap cutter or knife
small crock pot (I got mine for $10)
- put crockpot on medium heat
- cut soap into small pieces
- put in crockpot
- stir as it melts
- add water or milk when it starts to melt
( ilike to stick blend at the end to get it nice and smooth)
- LAST STEP ! add fragrance again. Any fragrance that was in the bar is probably evaporated from the heat of the crock pot. Add 1/2 Oz - 1oz depending how strong you want it. i keep this as the last step so the heat doesn’t mess with it too much.
Give it one good stick blend and immediately pour into mold. Let sit out or stick in refrigerator to speed up the process.
