About Us

Sourcery (pronunciation as per “sorcery”)  - Definition – blending the skill of the alchemist with the endeavour of the trader.

The Sourcery is the brainchild of Glenda and Martin Carson.  And is the result of many years of tinkering, experimenting and developing recipes for their interests.   As diverse as soap making, cosmetics, aromatherapy and leather dyeing and finishing – combined with global supplier relationships in many different industries.
