Michelada Hot Process Soap
Freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice, green tomato, pickled jalapenos, a dusting of paprika and smoky Szechuan pepper
Not technically a beer soap, but definitely inspired by them, Michelada smells super tart, savory, spicy, & refreshing, just like its namesake. Sour citrus & garden veggies are underlined by just a hint of hot peppers & smoky spice, not enough to burn, but enough to get you moving!
(To make your own michelada, wait until it's 95 in the shade & pour a bottle of Corona or your favorite pale beer over lots of ice, top it up with a fistful of lemon & lime wedges, add a squirt of every hot sauce you have in the fridge, & shove a few olives or a pickle spear in there for good measure. It will be one of the strangest, most satisfying drinks you've ever had...)
This listing is for one (1) 5+ounce bar of hot process soap, made from scratch by me in my own workshop. If you find glycerin soaps a bit too drying, this is the bar for you. I've spent several months developing a coconut- & shea-free formula that lathers beautifully & is packed with nourishing vegetable oils & butters. I make my hot process soap in small batches, & allow each batch to cure for 3 weeks to ensure a firm, mild bar. Each hand-cut bar measures 3x3x1 inches, & weighs approximately 5.5 ounces.
As always, your soap will arrive hand-wrapped in cellophane, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Water, Olive Oil, Organic & Sustainable Palm Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Organic Palm Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Fragrance Oil, Mica, Paprika
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar. Hot process soap has a marbled, natural appearance. Streaks, swirls & blobs are all part of the charm, & in no way affect the quality of your soap :)
