ONE: Combine the Goat Milk Rebatch and 2 Tablespoons of
distilled water in a double boiler. Stir over medium heat until it reaches the
consistency of mashed potatoes. Add the third Tablespoon of water if the
consistency seems too dry.
Once you’re happy with the consistency of the soap, add
the Christmas Forest Fragrance Oil and Peppermint 2nd Distillation Essential Oil
and mix in well.
Split the batch in half. To one half, add 2 teaspoons of
Green Zeolite Clay and mix well. To the other half, add 1 teaspoon Rose Clay and
mix well. When coloring rebatch, remember WYSIWYG (what you see is what you
get), so if you’d like a more vibrant color, add a bit more clay!
FOUR: Using a spoon, “plop” the red colored soap in two places
in the 2 pound wood log mold, one “plop” on either side of the mold. “Plop” some
of the green soap in the center of the mold. Tamp the mold on the table to allow
the soap to settle together.
FIVE: Build layers using this same method, alternating colors
for each layer. So, the next layer will go green-red-green, and the next
red-green-red, and so on until the mold is full. Don’t worry if the layers
aren’t perfect! It will just add more interest to the soap.
SIX: When the mold is full, gently cover the top with plastic
wrap and press into the mold to fill any holes. Top off the mold with more soap
if necessary, and press again with the plastic wrap until you can’t fit any more
soap in the mold.
SEVEN: Allow the soap to dry, and unmold. How long the soap
takes to dry will depend on how much distilled water was added in the beginning,
but usually 1-3 days is enough time.
