My experience with Paula was increasable. I knew nothing about candle making, but wanted to learn about candle making and make it a business. Paula's energetic and kind personality made the course fun and enjoyable, she loves teaching and to give her knowledge and experience to others. With this course I saved so much time rather than learning time by time. One of the best courses in candle making for business.

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:

Thank you Kristina, all the best of luck in your business.

If you are starting a candle business, it would be almost impossible without Paulaโ€™s incredible knowledge. I promise you, after being in the forums, I know more in my sessions than people that have been doing it without training for months.
On top of the sheer amount of knowledge, sheโ€™s so super nice and so patient. She explains everything so clearly and it was so enjoyable. I highly recommend the one to one course.
The candle I made is amazing by the way!
Very very happy!
