When I was little I had a Christmas Scratch and Sniff book that I absolutely loved! It was pulled out of the box every holiday season, and I spent a lot of time enjoying all the scents. Some of my favorites were pine, hot chocolate, peppermint and oranges. I scratched and sniffed until the pictures were faded, but those smells remained. I’m going to have to ask my mom if she still has that book!
Our all natural Holiday soaps are the same way, they make an appearance every year, and I love the different scents.
We have decided this year to add a soap to our holiday collection. It is made with cinnamon and clove essential oils and really captures the spicy feel of the season. It reminds me of mulled cider on cold days; just a nice warm feeling.
There are, of course, benefits to these oils that go beyond the great smell. Both oils are antibacterial and anti-fungal. Clove oil also has pain relieving properties. Cinnamon oil can increase brain function because it stimulates blood flow. It will also help relieve stiff and achy muscles. And of course, this soap is made like all of our products – with only the best all natural ingredients and therapeutic grade essential oils.
Our only problem is that we haven’t come up with a name for the soap yet. This is where we need your help. Leave a comment giving us your name ideas for the cinnamon and clove soap. If we use yours, we will give you a bar. But don’t delay – we will be picking a name at 5:00 this afternoon!
