About the Course

Discover the joy of making your own soap, learn about the botanical ingredients and take home techniques that you can use to design your own future recipes. During the workshop we will make a batch of soap together for you to take home.

There is a real beauty that can unfold when you make your own skin care products, having an appreciation for the natural ingredients, understanding where they come from and their precious qualities can inspire us to bring a whole new level of cherishing to our everyday skin care rituals.

In this course you will discover the joy of making your own soap, learn about the botanical ingredients and take home techniques that you can use to design your own future recipes. During the workshop we will make a batch of soap together which can be taken home to use.

No experience necessary, open to all.

Course tutor: Laura Hoy
Laura Hoy is an Essential Oil Consultant and completed her training in Holistic Aromatherapy & Essential Oil Science with Neal’s Yard Remedies in 2009 and there began her ongoing adventure with nature and nurturing and a renewed awareness of her sense of smell. As manager of NHR Organic Oils for 7 years, she gained experience with sourcing quality oils and deepened her awareness of the range of products available and their uses. While developing client relationships she understood there is a need for supportive advice on using oils and began sharing her expertise by way of training, workshops and private consultations. Her way of working is hands on and she encourages clients to reconnect to their own sense of alchemy, whether it be making a personal fragrance or choosing how to bring a bespoke product into daily life. Essential oils and other ingredients can be incredibly powerful tools to support an array of day to day and chronic health conditions but the most important factor for Laura is the way each person uses them, as with everything, our intention is key and the way we are is an important part of the magic. Laura is a member of the ‘International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists’ and the ‘Esoteric Practitioners Association’.
