Zanzibar: Known as “The Spice Island”, Zanzibar is an archipelago located off the coast of Tanzania, East Africa, and is the birthplace of Cinnamon & Clove
I first spent time in Zanzibar in 2007, and it was an absolutely magical experience. From the winding streets of Stonetown, to the old slave markets, Freddie Mercury memorabilia wherever you turn, amazing street-food from the Forodhani Gardens night market, street vendors wanting to sell you everything from scarves to CDs, and mojitos made with coriander (yes, you read that right – ask me the story, it’s a good one!) Zanzibar captured my heart instantly.
A subsequent 3 trips to Zanzibar over the next 3 years cemented it as my place of zen, of retreat and rejuvenation. When I moved to Zambia in 2010, Zanzibar became one of my regular go-to destinations to relax and unwind.
It is therefore fitting that the first seeds of Cinnamon & Clove were sown on one of my trips to Zanzibar. This soap is the namesake of Cinnamon & Clove – and the scent that started us off back in Zambia. Inspired by my favourite scents of Zanzibar, I wanted to create a piece of this island paradise that could be used on a daily basis. Coloured from the pantry, with cacao, cinnamon and clove powders, this is my sentimental favourite!
