Triple Ginger Soap 6


 

 Yesterday I told you of my love for ginger. I decided I wanted to make a triple ginger soap. In my mind  you can never have to much ginger. In this soap I used our Ginger Fragrance Oil, ground ginger, and fresh ginger! Even if you are not part of the ginger fan club, this soap is fun and exotic!Whenever I go to Salt Lake City, I visit the London Market. I replenish my stocks of marzipan, parma-violets, elderflower soda, chocolates and preserves. Note: I am not from the United Kingdom, just a HUGE fan of exotic foods. However, no matter how much I have at home, I always get crystalized ginger, ginger preserves and spicy ginger beer sodas. I am definitely part of of the ginger fan club. 😉

I don’t know how many of you have been to a sushi restaurant but when I first went I was introduced to pickled ginger. Our Korean friends were explaining all of the sauces. Once I learned it was ginger, I picked up a a large slice, paired it with a california roll and chowed down. Our friends eyes became large as saucers and they scrambled to get me a drink. Knowing me, I am sure you can guess what I did next. You got it! I went back for another. Come join me for this spicy ginger soap!

      It IS yummy! It smelled almost like a ginger spice cookie, sans the cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. It is surprisingly sweet with a spicy biting kick afterwards. If you want, I can hold a sample to send to you in your next order. I’ll keep it on my desk and try to resist using it. 😉

    Does the smell of the ginger last for long if the soap remains unused for sometime

      I had a bar that sat on the shelf for over a year. While the scent did eventually fade, it was strong for several months.

      Best,
