This was an amazing course and Nic is a great teacher! I came away with many lovely things that I'm very happy with (bath truffles, body scrub, lip balm and of course soap). Although we made a lot of things the day was very relaxed with time for us to smell and choose essential oils for our products! I will definitely be booking another course!

Response from Boo Cottage Botanicals:

Thanks so much Sam for your lovely review! It was a great day with you all, and I’m really pleased to hear how much you enjoyed it, Nic

I bought this experience for my friend's birthday and we had such a fabulous time! Nicola was so great at making us feel welcome, explaining the history and basic science behind soap making and then guiding us through colour and fragrance choices (so much choice!). Such a great morning and a perfect course for beginners. Would definitely recommend!

Response from Boo Cottage Botanicals:

Thanks so much for your review Jade! Really lovely to finally meet you properly and so pleased you both enjoyed the workshop.

What a fabulous course, I learned how to make soap from the very knowledgable Nic who is a really great teacher, so well prepared, kind and patient. There's nothing she doesn't know about her subject. A really great morning. Also some wonderful Christmas presents made!

Response from Boo Cottage Botanicals:

Thanks so much Janette for a lovely review. I really enjoyed our morning together, chatting about all our crafty projects - thank you for being a fabulous student!

We had a very good morning of well presented evidenced based lecture of history of soap making, the science behind it and the practical of making own choice of soap today by Nicola and Ben. Very relaxed and conjucive environment to adult learning. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend Boo Cottage for soap making craft course.

Response from Boo Cottage Botanicals:

Thanks so much Peggy for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you and we’re looking forward to seeing you again on your next workshop with us. Hope you enjoy using your soap when it’s cured. Best wishes, Nic

Excellent, had a great time with Nicola & Ben, very informative & reassuring, everything you need to know is covered. If you want to learn how to make REAL soap (cold process), look no further.
