Magic Cauldron Handcrafted Soap

Welcome to my webpage! My name is Jennifer Sauer. I began making my own soap a few years ago, experimenting with plants from my own organic herb garden. I was interested in soaps with the beneficial aspects of herbs that would be gentle on the skin and smell great, too. Those first batches of soap went to family and friends, who appreciated the blends I tailored to their individual skin types. I moved to California in November 1997 and decided to realize my dream of having my own craft business.

Magic Cauldron soaps are made from vegetable glycerine, herbs, essential oils and some fragrance oils. I make them in my kitchen, and they are only tested on willing participants! I use glycerine rather than traditional lye, because it is gentler on the skin and moisturizing without added oil. The soaps are attractively packaged and make a unique gift.


Blends

Soothing

These combinations are great for dry skin:

Garden of Eden - with honey and fennel, and a light, fruity fragrance

Seven Sisters - borage, marshmallow, elder and linden, with a light, floral fragrance
 

Relaxing

Herbs and fragrances to calm those frazzled nerves:

Autumn Slumber - cinnamon, basil and marjoram, with a sweet, spicy fragrance
