ABOUT THE ARTISAN
Welcome! My name is Kara Muller and I am the Soap Maker and Perfumer at Jezebel Soaps & Perfumery. I create organic perfumes and castile soaps using simple, old-fashioned methods and pure, fragrant botanicals.
I believe that magic is found in the natural rhythms of life and in the beauty of nature. And beauty resides in contrasts: a sunbeam in a shaded forest, the divine nature of earthly botanicals, the luxury of the simplest of ingredients. Because of my deep love of nature, I wish to protect our environment by eliminating the use of unnecessary chemicals and advocate a return to simpler products made by simpler methods.
My perfumes are created using distilled flowers, plant extracts, pressed citrus peels, and fragrant resins. They are made the way perfumes were made over 100 years ago before the invention of synthetic scent molecules. I love creating perfumes that inspire sensory reverie and attentive thought.
My Castile soaps are made from olive oil, clay, infused herbs and essential oils and are free from synthetic fragrances, artificial colorants and other chemical additives. They are wonderfully moisturizing, extremely gentle, and perfect for people with dry or sensitive skin.
I feel there is magic involved in working with botanical ingredients and I'm forever enchanted by the way simple, natural ingredients can combine to create true luxury.
