Colonial Pomander Orange and Clove
Available for order
A sultry, spicy scent that is as splendid in the tub as it is on the sink. The pomander dates back to 1250 CE, where fragrant balls were worn or carried to ward away infection. Some believed it would ward away the plague, which may hold some truth, since insect hosts are repelled by many essential oils. The pomander as we know it, made of clove and orange, is rooted in Colonial Times. Colonists made pomanders to freshen the nearby air, keep moths out of the closets, and as fragrant decorations. Our Colonial Pomander soap is truly an authentic New England treat!

*Soap, by definition, is made by reacting Sodium Hydroxide (a.k.a. NaOH, lye) with oils. This applies to every single soap, ever. NaOh is completely used up in the reaction. None remains in final product. This process of soap-making, or “saponification”, results in glycerol (a.k.a glycerin) and soap.
