Remember Sweet Clove Gum? I saw some not long ago. It is supposed to help freshen your breath. Now you can feel fresh all over with this all natural clove soap.
Clove Essential Oil and Ground Cloves give this soap a wonderful aroma. Clove Essential Oil is thought to promote feelings of comfort and warmth and is also thought to be rejuvenating. I also find it to be good at deodorizing. This is one of my most popular soaps and it will leave you feeling clean and fresh. Ingredients: Water, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Canola Oil and Olive Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Cloves, Clove Essential Oil.
Soaps from scratch do best when placed in a soap dish that allows for some circulation of air around them. Or you can put them in a bag that allows the excess moisture to escape. If the soaps don’t have adequate ventilation, they may get soft or gooey and they won’t last as long. But don’t worry – they will still bubble, lather and clean even if they get a bit goopy.
I make the soaps from scratch using the cold process method. I make small batches, and lovingly cut each individual bar. Because of the handmade nature of the soaps, each bar is unique. Your soap will look similar to, but my not look exactly like, the one shown in the photo. That’s part of the charm of homemade soaps made in small batches.
I enjoy the artistic aspect of designing with colors, and I also enjoy watching the chemical changes that takes place in the soap-making process. I was hooked on making soaps from scratch from the very first batch I made.
Soaps from scratch are scented with either fragrance oils or essential oils. The ingredient list will let you know which this soap contains. Fragrance oils are designed specifically to provide fragrance, and often contain synthetic materials. I use them because there are many fun fragrances that are not available in essential oils. Their fragrance also tends to stay in the cold process soap for me better than essential oils do. For most people, fragrance oils with synthetic components do not cause a problem. However, if you have experienced allergies to cosmetics in the past, you may wish to avoid the soaps with synthetic fragrance.
