I want to say a huge thank you to Nichola and Boo Cottage Botanicles for such an fabulous day. We learnt such a lot about natural skincare got to make an huge amount of products including soap, lip balm, bath truffles and body scrub and had so many laughs along the way. Nichola was a brilliant teacher and her love of soap making is infectious.
What a fabulous and fun day! Nichola was very welcoming and knowledgable about her subject. Lots of lovely things made over the course of the day. Highly recommended.
One of the best classes that I attended in my life was with Boo cottage botanicals (Soap and Cosmetics Making).
Very informative and clear
Very well organized
A wonderful workshop charmed me with it smells and simplicity from first sight
Mrs Nichola the class captin and her partner Mr Ben did all what they can do to give us a nice experience and they were very generous with us.
The soap making is little bit dangerous
But Nichola teached us a simple and organized way to do it.
Every tool you need is there
Many selections of oils, butters, essential oils, natural colors and other materials are provided.
So just join the classes and unleash yours creativity .
They helped me in the transportation between the railstation and the workshop without any additional charge
They stayed with me after the class for an hour answering my questions
I came from London to taunton just to attend the class and it really worth all the costs and I really wished to stay longer
Did I say they have a light English lunch and a charming products in thier small shop?
thank you very much Nichola & Ben
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.
