Scented Soaps

I like to keep a good-sized supply of scented soaps at home, for several reasons. First of all, when you buy handmade soaps in bulk, they cost a whole lot less. Scented soaps keep for quite a long time, so there's no reason not to buy ahead. I would rather think about buying soap a couple of times a year, than think about it every time I go to the grocery store.

Scented Soaps as Sachets

I like using scented soaps as sachets in my drawers. I keep all natural soaps in my lingerie drawer, my sweater drawer, and so on. I find that the soaps impart a subtle but pleasant fragrance to my clothing.

I tend not to wear perfumes or heavy scents so, for me, the smell of my soap really matters. Without heavy perfumes to obscure my scent, the fragrance of the all natural soap I use really shines through. Personally, I think the smell of clean skin, lightly enhanced by a scented soap, is a much more pleasant smell than heavy colognes or perfumes. I find it's sometimes difficult to be near a person who has laid the cologne on a little too thick. Scented soaps' odors never overwhelm.

Pick a scented soap that says something about you! If you have a fun personality, try blueberry soaps. If you're more of a romantic, choose lavender soaps. Pine soaps are wonderful for a clean, outdoorsy feel. Sandalwood or patchouli soaps create a little mystery.
