Myself and my daughter- in- law enjoyed the courses immensely, Nic is so warm and welcoming and imparts such amazing information about the ingredients and processes.
We found the day to be fun and relaxing, and we came away some some brilliant natural soaps and skin car products.....that smell fantastic!!

Response from Boo Cottage Botanicals:

Really good workshop. I have previously done their soap and skincare workshop and returned for more. This time face creams. As before, Nic and Ben were super friendly and great hosts, supplying endless tea and biscuits. In addition, the variety and choice of ingredients for your creams is large, and you are given time and guidance to make decisions. Nothing is rushed but still the time flies when you are having fun. Really recommend this workshop for people and groups interested.

Friendly well organised session. It was great fun and very interesting. Not only do you make moisturisers and creams for body and face but you learn so much about skin care and making the products. It was a fabulous morning. I would highly recommend it.

Response from Boo Cottage Botanicals:

Thanks Helen for a lovely review! It was great to have you and hope you are enjoying using your creams, Nic

My sister, niece and I joined three others yesterday for a fabulous morning on this course. An excellent short introduction to our skins and how they work and then we were on to mixing our ingredients for the body creams. Great fun smelling all the essential oils to see which ones we liked best. Everything was clearly explained, all the equipment was ready for us to use and Nic and Ben were there throughout to help us and explain things. After the body cream we all had a go at some face cream which was a slightly different recipe. I can't recommend this course enough, it was informative, fun and we all came home with beautiful and aromatic creams. And there was plenty of coffee and biscuits throughout the morning. Thanks Nic and Ben, a truly fun morning.

Response from Boo Cottage Botanicals:

Thanks Liz for such a lovely and comprehensive review! We really enjoyed having the three of you back and hope you are enjoying using your creams. Hope to see you again on another workshop, Nic
