Hello Friends!
My soap making adventures began when I took a soap making class in 2000. So much fun, and the possibilities are endless! I was constantly making soaps for my children and soaps for friends and family. Then I decided to try my hand at other creations like lotions, scrubs, creamed soaps... I'm still coming up with new ideas and recipes!

In 2007 I decided to start selling my creations. I became "HeidisHandmades" and got a business license and insurance. I have been selling here at Etsy under that name, which has been a wonderful selling venue!

In the Fall of 2009 I started this "Bubbling Cauldron" line for those who are into zombies, witches and vampires.   My husband suggested it because he loves zombies and such. I was planning to do it just for the Halloween season but had several requests from customers to sell them all year!  So this shop "The Bubbling Cauldron" is an extension of HeidisHandmades.etsy.com.

About My Products:

My listings say that I include arsenic, snake venom, and other rather intriguing ingredients.  Not true!  That's just me having fun (hope you didn't believe me!)  I do include the true ingredients at the bottom of each listing.

All of my soaps are actually made with 100% vegetable oils and butters, such as shea butter, aloe vera, coconut oil, palm oil, castor oil, safflower oil, and soy bean oil.

My creams, lotions, and scrubs are also made with shea butter, honey, sweet almond oil and other wonderful natural skin nourishing butters and oils. But they do also contain gentle preservatives... just the right amount to keep harmful bacteria from growing in the products over time.

Some of my products even have a sort of magical power to them, I will let you in on a few little secrets...

Feeling down lately? Anything lavender is what you need. It will completely lift your spirits and lower your stress levels. My Lavender Lemongrass is especially wonderful!

Also, there was a study to find what scents turn men on the most, and the combination of lavender and pumpkin pie topped the charts! So I offer this scent combination in my shop and it's actually my top-seller!

Feeling in pain? Sore joints? Arthritis, pulled muscle? My Soothe Yer Bones massage cream will help. Some of my customers cannot live without it, while for others - it just takes the edge off. The effects vary for different people and different degrees of discomfort.

I hope you will enjoy all of my products just as much as I enjoy making them for you!

Have a delightful day!
