Paula is an excellent teacher and does not hesitate to share her knowledge. I did the course via zoom and Paula made sure that we were well prepared before making our soaps. Her instructions were quite clear and there was enough opportunity to ask questions. Small group which makes it even better. I will highly recommend this course.

From receiving the soap making kit to the end of the online zoom course was amazing. The kit had more than expected and needed. The course started with the basics of soap making going through everything from oils and what they produce as an end product to formulas and even a lye calculator, which makes everything so much easier. Then comes the exciting part with gloves and goggles we started the process of making the soap adding clays powders and Ess Oils. I wasn’t actually looking forward to mixing the caustic soda with the water as I was expecting a different reaction but it was so easy and Paula took us through it step-by-step. Still waiting to unmould and see the final product. I can’t recommend Paula enough, she is so thorough and the class was fun. Such an insight into not only making soaps but also selling and starting your own business. 5*

Because of current restrictions, the course was online which had the advantages of not having to travel and my daughter could join in too! It was really good value for money with a detailed information booklet and video from which we were able to make our first basic batch of soap, followed up with a one to one online tutorial. Making our first batch from the instructions and video was great fun and gave me a good understanding of the process before my online tutorial with Paula. She took me through the factors involved in varying recipes and I planned a couple of recipes with Paula's help based on my personal preferences. The tutorial was scheduled to suit me and lasted as long as I needed (two and a half hours) which enabled me to ask questions and ensure that I understood everything clearly to make more soap variations. Paula is so passionate about what she does and she has really inspired me to experiment with soap making further. I can't wait to get started!

Response from Old Bexley Soap Co.:

Thank you Pauline, I enjoyed teaching you. Best of luck with your new experiments.
