Rebatching soap is a great way to make natural soap, yet best for those who do not want to expose themselves to lye, and rebatching is the way to make a harder more milled soap. Rebatching existing natural soap is also an easy and fast method for those who have tons of left over scraps from natural soap making. Author Deborah Dolen sets out her favorite method for making rebatched soap-the largest crock pot you can find, and lots of heat, as well as recipes for great hard soap combinations. Recipes include lemon-sage Kitchen deodorizer bar, aloe and primrose toning facial soap, corn meal and Echinacea facial scrub bar, Orange Blossom Soap, Pine Tar Healing Medicinal Soap, Rosemary and Peppermint Thinning Hair rescue soap bar, Shangri-La Laundry soap bar, Gardener’s soap (natural insect control) Gardener’s hand soap, Veggie wash, sensual soaps, and an oil attributes chart created by Deborah Dolen Mabel White.
Deborah Dolen, author of The Soap Rebatcher points out that rebatching is also great for scent retention whether you are using essential oils or fragrance oils. For example, pricey Bulgarian Lavender essential oil retains its scent throw and attributes far better in the rebatch method than if it were all poured into the lye process. This is because less heat is involved which normally evaporates any scent. Deborah Dolen feels the retention of scent is increased threefold and very advantageous for those wanting hard scented bars that last.
Rebatching is also great for just making hard soap balls and children’s activities.
