Year round I love clove soap, but it always conjures up images of fall for me. It has especially brought to mind images of my mother cooking a holiday ham, and pushing cloves into oranges for a scented holiday surprise for my parents during a couple of Girl Scout meetings. I still remember how much my thumbs hurt, and reminiscing is giving me ideas about an orange clove soap to make as well! Clove oil has been popular throughout the ages, and is even commonly used to treat toothaches. I find the scent to be quite stimulating, and it helps me start my day off ready to go! Plus, as a former gothy/grunge 90s young adult, who doesn’t have a love of the scent of clove cigarettes? I hope you love this soap as much as I do!
What’s in Clove Soap?
Ingredients are as follows:
- Olive Oil Pomace/Rice Bran Oil blend
- Palm Oil
- Coconut Oil
- Avocado Oil
- Palm Kernel Oil Flakes
- Clove Fragrance Oil
- Clove Essential Oil
- sodium hydroxide for the chemical reaction to make soap
We recommend that you use a draining soap dish with any handmade soap. Because a draining soap dish will give your bar of soap the opportunity to dry out between uses. This way you bar of soap will last much longer. Have you ever noticed that the bar of soap sitting in the puddle of water in your shower has become soft and mushy? When you’re soap is sitting in water, it is slowly dissolving.
