Today marks one month until Christmas Eve. Crazy, right? If you’re feeling a little stressed for time to make gifts for the holidays, rebatch soap is here to the rescue! Rebatch soap involves melting down shredded cold process soap with a small amount of additional liquid. Once melted, the soap becomes a thick, mashed potato-like texture that can be customized with fragrance and color. Rebatching is great if you’re in a time crunch, because it does not require a 4-6 week cure time like cold process soap does. If you’re unfamiliar with rebatch, check out this Soap Queen TV video to see the process in action. This recipe uses Basic Rebatch but there are all kinds of specialty rebatch bases to choose from, from goatmilk to palm-free to shea butter.
This Holiday Candy Rebatch recipe uses classic holiday colors, sparkle and embeds to create a super festive bar. Scented with a combination of Holiday Candy Fragrance Oil and Peppermint Essential Oil, these bars smell sweet and minty. The embeds are made with LCP Clear Melt and Pour to help prevent glycerin dew, click here to learn more. If you prefer, you can also use cold process embeds within the soap. To help avoid the embeds from melting within the soap, add them right before plopping the soap into the mold.
