Another wonderful course with Diane. I joined her and two other ladies previously for a soap making workshop. This time I attended a Skincare workshop which was so interesting and informative. I loved making the three natural products; my favourite is the balm which has so many different uses. Diane is very knowledgeable and an excellent teacher; I am looking forward to making more products at home for myself and friends.
Response from Aroma Natural:Hi Gilly, thank you for taking the time to say these words, I really appreciate it. I'm glad you enjoyed your day and found it informative, hopefully, you will carry on making your own skincare. Thank you.
There was a delay in me attending this course, and when I arrived for a skin making couse Dianne was prepared for a Business Making workshop. I had previously attended a soap one to one, and was told that if I booked the cosmetics course on that day, that she would also give me the information for the business course.
I had to rush back on the day, and due to the mixup regarding the course booked, I only ended up making one 100ml lotion. My family were hoping for some goodies when I returned 😣
Dianne is very welcoming and knowledgeable, but for £99 one to one workshops, you could definitely make more items, or a couple of soaps in that time.
Response from Aroma Natural:Hi Ceara, thank you for your review. I am sorry you could only stay for 3hrs instead of the full 5-6hrs which this workshop is, and would have given you ample time to make the three products instead of the one. The One to One Business workshop is also a full on 5-6hr day so I'm glad we were able to fit in as much as we did in the 3hrs. Hope you enjoy using your moisturiser.
Dianne was very welcoming into her beautiful home, and I very much enjoyed a lovely day of soapy talk and making. I booked straight away for her cosmetic course and really icouldn't recommend enough.
Response from Aroma Natural:Hi Ceara. Many thanks for the lovely review, it's so kind of you to take the time to write this. I thoughly enjoyed the day with you and look forward to your next workshop later. xx
An excellent course hosted by Diane a very friendly and informative teacher. Nothing was too much trouble for Diane. A very relaxing and enjoyable day.
Response from Aroma Natural:Huge thank you for taking the time to write this review, I really appreciate it. So pleased you enjoyed the day and hope you continue to make your soap. It was lovely to meet you.
I attended the Perfume Making course run by Diane. It was a great experience run by a lovely lady. Diane is very patient and knowledgeable I thoroughly enjoyed the day, and made perfume that I love and wear. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn something new and have a great day out in the process.
I attended this course on 19th September 2017 with two family members. Diane was very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable, taking us all safely through each step involved in the process. We came away with a certificate for the day and a wealth of information so we could continue our soap making journey at home if we so wished. We all had great fun and produced some lovely soap, which Diane posts out to you. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in cold press soak making.
I attended the soap making workshop with two friends and we thoroughly enjoyed it, Diane was very patient and relaxed while showing us how to make the soap, we also had a laugh and joke through out the day and nothing was too much trouble, we are now looking forward to collecting our soap and having a go at making some more!!Thanks Diane for a very informative day which we enjoyed very much .
I have had a wonderful day today, very relaxing and interesting. Diane makes you feel very welcome into her home, providing lots of tea/coffee and a lovely lunch. The workshop was very interesting and lots of information given. I am looking forward to receiving my soap through the post, and cannot wait to smell the fragrance, chosen by myself. This workshop, if like me, a complete novice, is great, I will definitely be making soap at home in the future.
We really enjoyed this course! Diane is an excellent teacher, extremely patient and knowledgeable. She took the time to answer all of our questions, and made sure we were comfortable with the process. We learned so much in just a few hours and came home feeling like we could tackle soap making ourselves, no problem! Diane's beautiful farmhouse is tucked away in the stunning Norfolk countryside, which makes for a nice day trip if you're not from around there! The cherry on top, of course, is getting your soap delivered a couple of weeks later - ours came yesterday and they look and smell brilliant! Can't wait to try them in a few weeks time.
We would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in soap making, DIY or just being creative!

Very interesting course , well run with a relaxed feel to it. Small class and very easy to follow the recipes. Diane is very knowledgeable and more than happy to answer questions and give extra help for any thing that is not covered on the day. I had a query after the course on making a product that we did not make on the day and Diane got back to me very quickly with some suggestions. Will definitely be booking on to the soap making course later in the year. A very enjoyable day.
I attended a first class soap making workshop Diane was running. She made it fun and extremely easy to understand. We were able to customise our soap for the smell we preferred by using essential oils. Everything we used was natural and of the highest quality. Her knowledge is phenomenal.
Whilst we waited for the next stage of our soap making we lunched outside (It was summer!) in her garden. The whole day was totally relaxing. I came away floating on air!
After a few days when the soaps had set I received them. They came in a long strip to be cut into the required size. The strip is big enough for 8 good sized bars. They make great presents for friends and family and are even more special when you tell the recipients you made the soap yourself! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and look forward to doing more workshops with Diane.
I attended a skincare workshop with Diane - and it was excellent!
I got to make and customise my very own cream and lotion, and take it home with me when it was ready. Diane's recipes are foolproof and very kind to your skin. Since then, I've only been using my self made skincare.
I had good fun on the course, and would recommend it to anyone thinking of trying something new!
I had wanted to make soap for ages but for varying reasons had not got round to it. Then I found Diane, what a delight, knowledgeable,hospitable and great fun. The course took place in Diane's delightful old farmhouse and being allowed into her still-room with all the ingredients and oils was a real privilege. The actual soap making process is really interesting and, quite magical actually, as you watched ordinary looking ingredients turn into soap before your eyes! Diane was patient and encouraging and answered the myriad of questions with ease and deep knowledge. This was one of the most relaxing and inspiring days I had had in a long while and the final delight was having my soap delivered a few weeks later, smelling wonderful with rich and creamy lather...yummy!
I would highly recommend this course and am hoping to return to do another course with Diane in 2016
I attended a one day soap making course with Aroma natural in October 2015. The day was very enjoyable, Diane is a lovely host, friendly and patient. Diane's home makes a very relaxed environment, the actual soap making process was really interesting and Diane was happy to answer lots of questions. Then the bonus is receiving the gorgeous bar of soap in the post a few weeks later (enought to cut into 10 bars) that you have created.
I booked myself on this course, not really knowing what to expect. It was so lovely doing it in an old farmhouse, with lovely people, and Diane who was very patient, friendly and encouraging. A lovely lunch was provided, along with a good giggle and chat,
So I actually got to make and customise my very own soap, and take it home with me when it was ready.
I really did have such fun, and would recommend it to anyone thinking of trying something new!
