If you don't want to make your own soap because you're nervous about working with lye, rebatching soap is a great way to customize soap for yourself. You work with grated soap, melting it down with liquid added, then put in your additives.
This is not melt and pour glycerin based soaps. The process is a little more involved. You'll be working with real soap, the kind made by mixing lye with fats. But without the hazards of working with lye. For soapmakers, this is a way to rescue a batch of soap that didn't turn out quite right.
The instructions are comprehensive and well written. The author does promote her own business for supplies. She includes all the information you'll need to get started on this hobby. It's not just recipes and suggestions for bath and body bars, she also includes her version of an oily soap for household cleaning, and furniture and floor polishes. There are also lots of tips for using essential oils for cleaning.
It's an e-book I'll refer to again, and use frequently.
Through it all, remember to stir, stir, stir and stir again,,,,,,
Make your CP soap as usual and stir it to light trace, add the grated soap and stir thoroughly. Pour the mixture in to a large cooking pot and place it on the stove at very low heat - remember to keep on stirring. After a while the mixture will bubble up and try to escape from the pot - stir it down. Eventually, the mixture will seperate into a fluid substance with small lumps, keep on stirring the mixture at low heat until it gathers (if my soap gratings are very dry, this is the point where i carefully ad some extra water - ad as little as possible. When the soap continuously create a thin membrane on the surface and a small lump of soap becomes hard in a glas with cold water, the soap is finished and you can add color, fragrance etc.
Our basic rebatch base is a high quality all natural soap base. This is an excellent base when first learning how to make rebatch soap. Suitable for all skin types, our basic rebatch base also accepts all fragrance and essential oils wonderfully.
These tips are helpful but to receive complete and comprehensive information, ONLY this Ebook "The Soap Rebatcher by Deborah Dolen" will give you the needed knowledge to rebatch your soap ---highly recommended!
