More rebatched or handmilled soap

I think I don't mind rebatching at all...
yes, it is sort of more work, you make a batch and it doesn't come out the way you want it and you know you have to cut it up, throw it in the crockpot etc....but you don't have to deal with measuring oils, additives,gloves, ...it is more relaxing  and the bars don't look bad at all, I can't even tell the difference.


The same rebatch, but two different molds

" girly "soap and" manly soap"

rosepetals and lavender buds



oatmeal soap
anise, peppermint EO,firneedle and sleepy time

Failed goatsmilk batch

I was very excited to try out my new mold.I never made 5 # of soap before.
When I added the milk to the batch, BUMM...the batter turned almost  solid immediately, I had just a little moment to get it in to my new mold .
It's always a little disappointing, I wanted to make this pretty, yummy looking, 2 colored soap and ended up with something else.
I through everything in the crockpot the same day,and at the end, I made a nice soap.
It's smells great, I used Lavender,lemongrass,rosemary,chamomile EO and the oil was infused in chamomile tea for a while.Great soap for babies and sensitive skin.
