So. I'm new here, (hello!) my name is Dee and I recently started making soap. I'm really enjoying it so far and haven't had any (real) problems thanks to the existence of lye calculators! Anyway one of my batches was a simple water based soap with coconut oil, shortening and olive oil. I used plumeria to fragrance it and after a few weeks, realized it was was still way too strong. It was p&j plumeria from Amazon. Lovely but sooo potent! I used about 2oz in about 2.5 lb of CP soap. Don't try this! Ha! Anyway I recently decided to grate it down for scraps and I think I'm going to take the plunge into rebatching it today before it dries out much more. I've read a lot about confetti soap and I'm not really thrilled by the idea. I'm thinking though (and can't really find much on this anywhere)... what if I do the boiling pot-baggie method, melt down the scraps and incorporate that MUSH into a NEW-FRESH PLAIN JANE CP BATCH? Stick blend it all together once the new cp batch is at light trace... can anyone tell me why this won't work? Best or worse case scenerio? I'm feeling very mad scientist right now and might just go for it so if you are out there and you know something I should know.... speak now!! Haha!
