Old World Handcrafted Soapmaker

Offered by: Carol Ochs

[A WitchVox Sponsor]

Located in: San Diego, California

Skill/Service Details: (Available for custom & private label soapmaking for your shoppe! We work with several witch shoppes across the USA, providing beautiful, luxurious soaps, our lines or your own custom ideas!)

Long, long ago...before there was a doctor in every village to tend the ills of people, there was the village Wise Woman...some called her "witch", for her powers to heal seemed *magical*! She simply understood how to use the power of both wild and hand-grown plants she harvested to heal and soothe, settle and calm, even lighten the mood with the power of aromatherapy. This knowledge was passed down to her by a family member or other Wise Woman who taught her as a trusted acolyte. Some knowledge she acquired through tried-and-true experimentation.

Many who would scorn her in public for her peculiar ways, her herb-strewn hair and muddy skirts from garden work, and mystical-seeming powers they themselves did not possess..... sought her out desperately when suddenly in pain, suffering a persistent ailment, or their child was sick with fever. Her *magic* was simply a love of and understanding of how to use Earth's plant bounty to it's advantage, known then as Wise Woman Ways.
A bundle of muslin-wrapped herbs was prepared, a tea or tincture mixed, a poultice tucked in leaves, a soothing balm poured in a jar, a corked bottle filled with finely pestled powders prepared, and the seeker was sent home with careful instructions for use of the preparation, or was cared-for near her warm hearth along with a bowl of delicious soup and mug of herbal tea.

A few coins were dropped in the Wise Woman's jar, or loaves of fresh bread or a basket of vegetables promised for the following day.....and all was in balance between caregiver and those who needed her expertise.
And Wise Woman Ways continue today......for those who know them, are gifted with "the knowledge".

Let us gather and mix, pestle and stir, measure and chant for you! You've discovered Wylde Wytch Soaps, and there's a special kind of magic in our soaps! Be sure to check our POTIONS page out, too!

Rates: Plain (no label) bars start at $7.50, Witch-Art Labeled Bars, 12-Bar Soap Logs, 36-Bar Bulk Chunks
