If you are interested in living healthy, you have certainly already heard about kombucha tea. Kombucha is a fermented tea which can be easily brewed at home and which has a lot of health benefits, boosting your immune system and energy levels.
Kombucha contains a slippery, living mat of stuff known as a “mother” or SCOBY, a culture of bacteria and yeast, that produces various compounds including alcohol and acetic acid, the primary flavor of vinegar. Plain kombucha has an acidic, vinegar-like flavor compared to the original sweet tea flavor. But the strength of the tea flavor can be adjusted with the amount of tea bags brewed per volume of water. What I like about this tea, is that you can make so many variants. By adding some fruits or spices you can adjust it to your preferred taste.
I have been brewing my kombucha since september. Thursday is the collecting day and even it takes a little bit of time to make it, I do enjoy these moments. While my husband would drink it because he knows that it’s healthy, my little daughter likes it and she asks for it everyday. We use to add it to our morning shakes or to drink mixed with some sweet sweet fruits. Kombucha tea has become part of our daily life.
This soap is inspired by the soap which I made last year of fermented wheat bran and by this kvas soap. Its delicacy, its foam made me want again to try another fermented product in soap. Those who already tried a soap with fermented wheat bran or kombucha know exactly what I mean.
Soap made of: coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter, cacao butter, sunflower oil, kombucha tea, litsea cubeba essential oil, citronella essential oil.
