Hello! I'm Heidi and I live in Ellicott City, MD! Thank you so much for visiting my shop!
My soap making adventures began when I took a soap making class in 2000. I became obsessed! 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 "Heidi's Handmades" and got a business license and insurance. I have been selling online under that name ever since, and it has been a lot of fun!
In the Fall of 2009 I started "The Bubbling Cauldron" line for those who are into zombies, witches and vampires. My husband suggested it because he loves zombies and such. Honestly, I'm not into those kinds of things so much, but I do enjoy creating the darker elegant product labels and scents! I was planning to do it just for the Halloween season but had several requests from customers to sell them all year! So I've decided to continue The Bubbling Cauldron as an extension to my Heidi's Handmades business.
When I am not making bath and body products, I am busy being Mom, wife, and I love to knit! I especially love to knit hats and I have made hundreds of hats for the homeless, the troops, cancer patients and NICU babies.
About My Products:
All of my soaps are made with 100% vegetable oils and butters, such as shea butter, aloe vera, coconut oil, palm oil, castor oil and safflower 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. 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 Soothing Aromatherapy 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 wonderful day!
