Hallo! 'S mise Fionnbhar. I began making my own soap a few years ago, because I was having trouble finding a soap gentle enough for my skin. I was also interested in the healing properties of herbs, experimenting with plants from my own organic herb garden. I moved to California in November 1997 and decided to stay home with my son and see if I could make a living selling my soap.
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! While the herbal combinations I use are based on my own research and experimentation, I can make no medical claims for their properties.
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
Herbs and fragrances to calm those frazzled nerves:
Magic Forest - hyssop, primrose, and valerian, with a warm, woodsy fragrance
Autumn Slumber - cinnamon, basil and marjoram, with a sweet, spicy fragrance
Sweet Surrender - balm, hops, and passionflower with a light, musky floral fragrance
These blends stimulate the circulation and wake up tired skin. They're good for oily skin, too:
Lemon Inspiration - rosemary, sage, and thyme with a spicy lemon fragrance
Midsummer Morning - purple sage and ginger with a warm floral fragrance
Great for clearing and brightening the complexion:
Holly King - witch hazel, oatmeal, and aloe with a fresh pine fragrance
Best Friend - yarrow, lady's mantle, lovage, primrose and calendula with lemony floral fragrance
Tightens pores and makes you feel zippy!
Mountain Meadow - yarrow, comfrey, nettle, and peppermint with a sweet, minty fragrance
Nourish and heal chapped and troubled skin:
Earth Mother - St. John's wort, red clover, cleavers, calendula, and chickweed with a warm, spicy fragrance
Green Man - yarrow, chamomile, lovage, elder, and linden with a spicy, masculine fragrance
Sea Goddess - oatmeal, kelp and spirulina with a cool and sweet fragrance with a tang o' the sea!
