Dark Orange

This soap has orange essential oil, and vanillin. Oranges originated in Asia, and was brought to the west by Arabs. Ancient Greeks called them "golden apples of the Hesperides". This is sweet Valencia from Florida. Aromatherapists say it’s a mood elevator, reduces anxiety, and blood pressure lowerer. The aroma is a favorite of children. Vanillin, the substance that crystallizes inside the cured seed pods, is produced commercially by synthesis from eugenal extracted from cloves or cinnamon. The soap reminds me of "Creamsicles".
