While enduring the COVID-19 pandemic, health officials stressed the importance of washing your hands to remove viruses and bacteria. And handwashing has been known for a while to stay clean and healthy. Back in 2008, The Global Handwashing Partnership started a specific day to promote cleanliness through handwashing.
On October 15th of every year, it is Global Handwashing Day to promote awareness about the importance of handwashing to stay healthy and clean. And when that day approaches, why not get the soap that has your favorite scent? Let’s talk about the perfect soap scent based on your zodiac sign.
Aries – Cinnamon And Cloves Scented Soap
Aries, you are not known for your low-key nature as you are passionate and assertive, and you can get aggressive when someone pushes you. When it comes to handwashing, you must remember to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds to remove the germs as you tend to rush that too.
However, if you want to use your perfect soap, you must use one with powerful spices because the soap does not have a floral scent. An example of the ideal soap type for you is cinnamon and clove soap. It has a sharp and powerful aroma.
Taurus – Luxurious Floral-Scented Soap
Taurus, you are sensual and deeply need luxury and comfort. Unsurprisingly, you would go after hand soap, giving you that special feeling. You also tend to wash your hands a lot longer than you need to, as you almost give yourself a hand bath because you love the feel of the running water.
And you would want to have hand soap that is gentle and gives you that luxurious feel, so you would like a soap that is scented with lilacs, violets, or white flowers and made with a soothing oil such as shea butter or coconut oil. Not only will your hands be cleansed, but they will be soft.
Gemini – Fruit-Scented Soap
Gemini, you are versatile, curious, and also like excitement, so you will take your time to learn what you can about Global Handwashing Day. Even though you tend to wash your hands too quickly, you will remind yourself that you must wait 20 seconds to run your hands under lukewarm water so you can remove the germs and have clean hands.
You want to have a fun-scented soap to use, and a fruity soap would be ideal for you. You could enjoy the scent of watermelon, strawberries, blackberries, or even citrus. You will be getting plenty of various fruity-scented soaps for yourself.
Cancer – Lavender-Scented Soap
Cancer, you are emotional and nurturing, and you will want the best for your family as you will encourage them to keep their hands clean, so they stay healthy. However, you can become very anxious about it, which is why you will need anything that can keep you calm.
Therefore, the best-scented soap for you would consist of lavender. Lavender helps to keep you calm and can give you that zen when you need it the most. Sometimes you wash your hands longer than necessary, as you don’t want to crack your hands either.

Virgo – Citrus-Scented Soap
Virgo, you take cleanliness very seriously because that is the nature of your sign. You are picky about many things but not too fussy about the aroma of soap. All you care about is that it will do the job of keeping your hands and body clean.
However, if you have a preference for soap regarding the scent, you would likely prefer a citrus-scented soap, whether it is lemon, orange, or grapefruit. That is because citrus fruits are known for their cleansing properties, and to you, it feels proper that soap would consist of citrus for that reason.
Libra – Vanilla-Scented Soap
Libra, you not only have an appreciation for beauty, but you love anything soft and delicate. You don’t like anything too harsh or intense. That is why the ideal soap sent for you is vanilla.
