Had a wonderful morning with Nic and Ben learning about soap making. They were very interesting, informative, patient and made it fun. The most difficult part was deciding on what type of soap to make but we all came away with very different and beautiful personalised products.
Nic also makes fabulous bath truffles and body butters. I thoroughly recommend this course and Boo Cottage Botanicals products.
Thank you Nic and Ben x

Time Very Well Spent...A fabulous course for absolutely anybody who has wondered how easy it would be to 'have a go' at making your own beautiful soaps. Nic and Ben are great hosts and teachers and nothing is too much trouble. The cookies and cupcakes were equally great:) And their soaps and lip balms are divine. I definitely recommend Boo Cottage Botanicals to friends and everybody who has a few hours to while away having fun being creative in a lovely location.

We had a wonderful morning with Ben and Nicola today learning about and making our own soaps. We started with an introductory slide show explaining the 'science' of the process and quickly started to look at oils and recipes for our personalised creations. Instructions were clear, and support helpful and informative. The whole experience was more simple than we had anticipated and was great fun. We would thoroughly recommend this course to any budding soap makers.
