Rebatch soap feels amazing on the skin and you don’t have to work with lye. Just heat the base, customize it with your favorite additives, and spoon into a mold. What’s not to love?
This Wildflower Rebatch Soap is simple to allow the flowers on top to be the star. It’s made with Luxury Rebatch Soap, which is a blend of skin-loving ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter, and mango butter.
The soap is placed into a pot over low heat with a splash of distilled water. As it heats up, it begins to soften and become the texture of thick mashed potatoes. At this point, fragrance oil can be mixed in. This recipe uses floral and fruity Daisy Chain Fragrance Oil. Then the soap is quickly transferred to the mold and a blend of cornflower petals, pink rose petals, marigold petals, and jasmine flowers are pressed into the top.
Wildflower Rebatch Soap Tutorial
- 10" Silicone Loaf Mold
- 45 oz. Luxury Rebatch Soap
- About 4 oz. Distilled Water
- 1.5 oz. Daisy Chain Fragrance Oil
- Cornflower Petals
- Pink Rose Petals
- Marigold Petals
- Jasmine Flowers
- Measure 1.5 ounces of Daisy Chain Fragrance Oil into a glass container and set aside.
- Place a large sauce pot on the stove and turn the heat onto medium low. You can also use a double boiler or a slow cooker.
- Add about half of the Luxury Rebatch Soap into the pot - it's okay to eyeball it. Add about half of the distilled water.
- Allow the soap to heat up and soften. While the soap is in the pot, stir every 30-60 seconds to prevent burning on the bottom. Add more water as necessary.
- Add the remaining Luxury Rebatch Soap, and allow the soap to melt. Continue to stir as necessary.
- While the soap cooks, mix together a few tablespoons of pink rose petals, jasmine flowers, marigold petals, and cornflower petals. The exact amount of each petal you use is completely up to you.
- Once all of the soap is homogeneous and smooth (it will have a texture similar to thick mashed potatoes) add the 1.5 ounces of Daisy Chain Fragrance Oil into the soap. Stir until the fragrance is fully mixed in.
- Quickly transfer the soap into the mold. Tap the mold firmly on the counter to help settle the soap into the mold.
- Using gloved hands, quickly press the flower mixture into the top of the soap. Press firmly to help the flowers stick. Some petals will fall off once cut, so use plenty of flowers.
- Allow the soap to fully cool and harden in the mold for 24 hours. If after 24 hours if the mold pulls away easily from the soap, it's ready to unmold. If not, let the soap harden for another day.
- Once unmolded, cut into bars. Rebatch soap does not require a 4-6 week cure time like cold process soap does. But, allowing the bars to cure for about 2 weeks will ensure extra moisture evaporates, creating a harder and longer lasting bar. Enjoy.
