Our Re-batch soap base allows you to make “cold process” style soap without the need to buy or use Sodium Hydroxide (Lye). Most re-batch bases turn into a putty like material when melted and are difficult to mold. This product liquefies when melted and is easy to pour into molds.
This sweet orange fragrance provides a wonderfully uplifting aroma and the calendula petals not only provide vibrant colour, but also soothe chapped and irritated skin.
3 cups Grated Re-batch Soap Base
1 teaspoon Sweet Orange Essential Oil
½ cup Calendula Flower Petals
½ cup Water
Mold of your choice
(Try Mold Market Soap Mold – Basic Rectangle – 001)
In a double boiler, heat your grated soap base over medium heat until melted. It may take anywhere from 25 minutes to an hour for your base to melt completely.
Gradually stir in your water. If you find your soap base is not smooth, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Keep in mind that the more liquid you add, the longer it will take for your base to set and the softer your finished bar will be.
Continue stirring until your soap becomes thick, smooth and creamy.
Add your oils, stir.
Add your flower petals and fragrance, stir.
Scoop into your soap mold and allow to harden before unmolding.[ReviewDisclaimer]
