Swirly Rebatch Soap

Not only is rebatch soap a quick and easy way to make soap for the holidays (no cure time - yay!) but it also has a gorgeous rustic look that just looks handmade and from the heart.

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.

TWO: 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.

THREE: 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.
