Such a lovely course, I had so much fun! It was nice and relaxed but still informative, and I loved having the choice of products and ingredients, especially all of the gorgeous essential oils! Nic and Ben were both so welcoming and helpful, it made for such a lovely day. I'm really happy with what I made, and I also really enjoyed getting to label and package it all to take home - it was a lovely finishing touch. I'd definitely recommend this course! Thanks:-)
