I had a truly fantastic day at Boo Cottage Botanical on the soap and skincare full day course.
Really enjoyed making soap, bath truffles, body butters and more. The end products look great and smell amazing . So nice to be able to take home what you make on the day. The course is well planned and easy to follow. Ben and Nic are superb hosts and tutors who make learning fun.
Great value for money, lots packed in ,but never rushed and a lovely lunch included. Will be returning for another course for sure . Thanks for the warm welcome and teaching me a new skill I can use at home. Portia x
