When it comes to personal care, nothing is better than a nice hefeweizen. Ok, maybe not so much. But a nice hefeweizen beer soap sounds equally pleasing.
Hefeweizens are known for being exceptionally drinkable, with welcoming hints of fruit and bubblegum. In some ways, they are like eating a boozy slice of banana bread. This is what makes them perfect for a hot summer day.
And just like the beer itself, lathering up with a bar of Hefeweizen soap should leave your skin feeling light and crisp.
Made with all of the typical ingredients, a dollop of coconut oil, some olive oil, and a few spoonfuls of German Purity Law, a bar of beer soap is just what your dry skin ordered.
Types of Hefeweizen Beer Soap you could make #
- The German Purity Law: Just barley, hops, and water. And sodium hydroxide. So it's not that pure after all. Germany, please forgive us.
- The Bar-varian: Splash of banana essential oil, some pulverized cloves, ground German noble hops, and some shea butter.
- Build-a-bar soap: Find a drinkable hefeweizen and enjoy it while you pour a lesser one into the mixing bowl. Add some lemon essential oil for a fantastic citrus scent.
*Caution: As always, chemical reactions can be harmful. Please be careful in all of your soap making endeavors.
