Usually when I make Soap for Soup, I use leftover soap batter from my soap pot. I’ll add soap scraps to the batter in the mold. But sometimes I have so many scraps, I decide to rebatch them. Rebatching Soap for Soup is fun because I never know how the soap will turn out.
Being a little lazy, I don’t grate my soap for rebatching. Rebatching soap from chunks instead of gratings also gives the soap a totally different look. I cut it into small pieces and add it to my crockpot. Add some water and turn the crockpot on.
After about two hours you can see how the soap ends are starting blend.
After four hours, it’s really meshed together. The consistency is like mashed potatoes, and perfect for getting into the mold.
I added some lavender and patchouli essential oils to this soap (to enhance the scent that’s already there. Remember these soap ends are already scented), and glopped it into the mold. (Yes, glopped is exactly the word I need here)
It’ll sit here overnight, getting hard enough for me to take out of the mold.
Once it’s solid soap, it gets cut into bars.
Not your typical rebatched soap bar, but I kind of like the look. What about you?
Yours in Gratitude,
