Description

Rebatching involves melting shredded cold process soap and customizing it with additives. This recipe is made on the stove top, but you can also use a slow cooker or a double boiler. The key is low and slow heat to prevent burning.

The recipe is scented with a blend of Lingonberry Spice Fragrance Oil and slightly sweeter Cranberry Fig Fragrance OilCranberry seeds are added for exfoliation and interest. 

If you’ve never made rebatch soap before, learn how in the Wildflower Rebatch Soap Project. In both projects, we use the Luxury Rebatch Soap. It’s made in-house with skin-loving ingredients like cocoa butter wafersshea butter, and mango butter. We recommend using it within 1-2 months. Older soap will need more distilled water and it will take longer to soften.

Lingonberry Rebatch Soap Project
This recipe is made with Lingonberry Spice Fragrance Oil, Cranberry Fig Fragrance Oil, and cranberry seeds. It's perfect for holiday gifting because the bars are ready as soon as they're cut!

Ingredients

10″ Silicone Loaf Mold
50 oz. Grated Luxury Rebatch Soap
4-6 oz. Distilled Water
1 oz. Cranberry Fig Fragrance Oil
0.5 oz. Lingonberry Spice Fragrance Oil
1 Tbsp. Cranberry Seeds
Optional: Rose Hips

Instructions

FRAGRANCE PREP: Measure 1 ounce of Cranberry Fig Fragrance Oil and 0.5 ounces of Lingonberry Spice Fragrance Oil into a glass container. Set aside.

1 Place a large sauce pot on the stove and turn the heat to medium. You can also use a double boiler or a slow cooker.
2

Add as much rebatch soap as your pot can comfortably hold – we added about 30 ounces at first. Pour in about 2 ounces of distilled water.

3

Allow the soap to heat up and soften. Stir every 30-60 seconds to prevent burning. After a few minutes, the soap will begin to condense into a very thick paste. Add the rest of the rebatch soap and 2-3 ounces of distilled water.

mix rebatch

4

As the soap continues to cook, it will become softer. Keep stirring every few minutes.

Eventually the soap will take on the texture of very thick mashed potatoes with a slightly glossy look. All the small pieces of rebatch soap should be melted and incorporated.

Turn off the heat and add the fragrance oil. Stir thoroughly.

7  

Add 1 tablespoon of cranberry seeds and mix. Note: Feel free to add more seeds if you like a very scrubby bar.

Quickly transfer the soap into the mold. Tap it firmly on the counter to help settle the soap.

Use gloved hands to press the top of the soap to give it an even and smooth appearance.

10

Allow the soap to fully cool and harden for 24 hours. If the mold pulls away easily from the soap, it’s ready to unmold. If not, let it harden for another day.

Cut into bars. It's ready to use right away, but allowing the bars to cure for about 2 weeks will ensure extra moisture evaporates, creating a harder and longer-lasting bar. Enjoy.
