Yesterday morning I made a batch of soap. I split the batch in half because I wanted to try something new. The first half  (16 bars) became coconut soap, which has been a popular soap with some customers. The second half I added dried clover blossoms to. My husband and I picked the mixture of red and white clover blossoms several weeks ago from our field, where the clover is abundant this year. I have used some of the blossoms to make an infused oil and I simply dried the rest. I really don’t know what clover blossoms might add to the soap, but after reading this article on WebMD it didn’t seem like it could be a bad thing.

If I like the results, and decide to make more, I will first make a clover tea to use as the liquid for making the soap.

These soaps will be tested and ready for purchase in about 6 weeks.

Oh, and did I tell you how much I like the “Spruce Me Up” soap? The creaminess and lather are superb and the ground pine needles add a little bit of roughness. I don’t really have a favorite soap but this one has to be near the top. 🙂
