Paula is an excellent teacher and host. I booked this course to go with a friend on her birthday and it didn’t disappoint.
Paula kindly picked us up from Bexley station as it was raining so much and drove us to her beautiful home.
We had such a fantastic morning learning and getting hands on making soap, there were so many essential oils to choose from.
After a busy morning we had a delicious afternoon tea and cakes.
Within a few days we received our soaps at home and they are now curing, I can’t wait for the 4 weeks of cure to use them!
We totally recommend this course, thank you Paula!
I had a wonderful day learning how to make natural soap. I’m so proud of the soaps that I made, they look so pretty. Paula was a brilliant teacher providing lots of encouragement and advice. The afternoon tea was a lovely way to finish the morning. Thanks
