Make sure you are giving the soap enough time to dry. Initial drying is a week, and secondary drying can be 3 weeks.

Normally, if you are trying to make new soap out of soap scraps, you shouldn't add oil to the mixture. This can prevent it from setting and drying. Furthermore, it can take several weeks for the soap to dry.

Thank you for your help. I was attempting to make re make a soap for my husbands dry skin. Thought by adding body oil it would help.

If I re cook the soap will that reduce the oil content and help solidify the soap. Currently it resembles semi set porridge and is 6 days old

Most likely the body oil is preventing it from setting

It's the oil.. skip it if you want hard set soaps.
