I am not a big fan of Haloween, actually I have never liked this period of year . But I love pumpkin. I have always loved it. And because I wanted to use pumpkin in soap, this year I decided to like Halloween also.
I spent a lot of time thinking which essential oil to use in my soaps, as I want to make a synergie which wouldn’t go wrong and, when a colleague brought some spice bread/ pain d’épices at work( a typical French bread made of a mix of spices like cinnamon , ginger, clove , anise , muscade) I was very delighted to discover some spices I haven’t used before like clove bud or anis , for example. So I decided to try a new essential oil blend - clove bud – for my pumpkin soap, combined with cinnamon essential oil.
Clove Oil is aphrodisiac in nature and hence serves as an excellent stress reliever. It has a stimulating effect on the mind and removes mental exhausion and fatigue. Clove Oil also induces sleep so is very helpful for insomnia patients. The health properties of cinnamon are due to its antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial and astrigent properties.
The ones who make soaps know that the plans we make before making them are sometimes totally different from the final result. Maybe it’s the combination of clove oil , cinnamon oil and goat milk, but my soap got the trace so quick that I didn’t even had time to put it in my mold( the darkest part, as you see, looks more like a rebatch). And the colour changed from a nice yellow to a red brown colour.
Personnaly, I love this sweet scent combination of clove bud oil and cinnamon. I put this soap in the kitchen and the perfume is irresitable…
