Ancient Cauldron Spice Soap
Cinnabar is used by many as a stone of transformation. It has been used to attract wealth, as it was once associated with Royalty and the Rich. It is also said to bring about spiritual transformation to those who possess it.
This soap is a nod to this once glorious mineral with its gorgeous color and mysterious scent. Filled with Moroccan Red Clay to cleanse and balanced with nourishing Carrot and Pumpkin, this soap is gently exfoliating and richly scented.
Although this bar does not contain any real Cinnabar, which is highly toxic… the brick red color mimics the mineral’s natural beauty. Cinnabar has been used for it’s color since antiquity in the Orient as well as a cosmetic ingredient for rouge. It was also popular for coloring stoneware and the Olmec People buried it with their Royalty.
You will see some garnet colored suds due to the clay, but it will not stain your skin. You may also want to use darker colored washcloths.
The scent: Spicy, but not full on Cinnamon spicy. It is rounded out and more defined by the Anise, Black Pepper, Clove and Nutmeg and a touch of Sweet Orange is added as well. It smells like the old spice shops I first encountered when I started my journey years ago. A mysterious scent that you can’t quite put into a category.

Handmade in small batches.
After the soap is made and cut into bars by hand, the leftover ends and pieces are used for samples, so none is wasted.
Weight: Each bar weighs approx. 4.5 - 5 oz.
Size: Approx. 2.5” x 3.5”. Due to the handmade, hand cut nature, size and weight may vary slightly.
About my soaps: All my soaps are made using the cold process method. Cold process soap is made with lye. Lye is a natural ingredient made from wood ash. Once the soap has gone through the saponification process, which turns oils and lye into soap, there is no lye present in the cured, finished bar.
