Ever look for something with an Etrog-theme and come up empty handed? No need to look further! This Succoth we’ve got you covered! This collection of Etrog & Myrtle Succoth Soaps is the perfect Yom Tov gift for an evening out in a friend’s sukkah.
Not only does a dried slice of etrog (or esrog) grace the middle of each clear soap bar, but its essential oil is a show-stopper. It’s so zesty and strong that it provides both a light yellow tone and aromatic scent to each bar. Meanwhile, there are so many reasons to celebrate leaves during the Jewish autumn festival! From the s’chach roof of the sukkah, to the lulav (palm frond), hadass (myrtle) and aravah (willow) all can be honoured, with the etrog, as the fruit of the tree.
