9 months after meeting Ben I finally got to do a workshop with my friend Kate. We did the whole day, natural soap and skin care and it was well worth the wait and 2 hour drive. We had a lovely day and got to take our handmade goodies home. Nic and Ben are amazing teachers and hosts and I would not hesitate to recommend the workshop. Ben makes an amazing lunch too ! Thank you for a lovely day, it was just what we both needed.
Just spent a fantastic Sunday morning with my sister and niece on Nic and Ben’s Natural Skincare Making workshop. A short introduction was followed by a sniffing, smelling and rubbing in session where we tried out the various ingredients to see which we preferred and then on to the making. This was hugely enjoyable and we were provided with all the instruction, equipment and ingredients to “cook up” our lip balms, bath bombs and scrubs amongst other things. The morning was rounded off with coffee and a chance to personalise and decorate our products. A lovely way to spend a morning and we have all come home with a box of deliciously yummy products. I can thoroughly recommend this course, Nic and Ben were very welcoming and the whole session was conducted in a warm, friendly and enjoyable atmosphere.
Had a great time at a Soap Making Workshop back in March and have now started using the soap. It is a lovely texture, smell and best of all I made it and know what went in it. I went to the work shop with a friend and we swapped a couple of soaps so shared our delights. I'd highly recommend this and will probably do it again but definitely will look at the moisturiser days too. Bridget
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a fantastic day today at your workshop. I've just sent a picture of all my goodies to my daughter in North Wales and she was really impressed with all my goodies.
You're both so patient and explain everything very clearly, it was certainly a great pleasure to be with you today.
I would love to come back later in the year with my daughter who would love it I'm sure. I'll keep an eye on your website.
I met Ben at the Shaftesbury Christmas fair last year and ended up buying soaps and bath bombs for my step daughter who suffers from eczema. Also some soap for myself and a friend. The soap leaves your hands feeling lovely and soft. I recently purchased some more bath bombs for myself , soap dishes which are great as they let your soap dry and you don’t end up with a slimy mess. I also bought some facial oil which I am now using instead of my well known face cream that I have been using for years. The oil makes my face feel so much softer . I am now going to book a days workshop to make some of my own. Thank you
I initially met Nichola at a Christmas Fayre and chatted to her about the options for Hen Do workshops. From beginning to end Nichola was so helpful in the organising of the Soap Workshop, happy to answer any questions I had.
The workshop itself was a brilliant Hen Do activity. Nichola and Ben were both really attentive, making it fun for everyone. We learnt about the chemistry of soap making without it being too in depth.
The whole group had a great time and it was really lovely that they got to take something physical (the soap) away from the weekend.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the workshop to anyone who is thinking of attending or planning a Hen Do.
Thanks again Nichola & Ben
Huge thanks to Nic and Ben for two such fun and interesting workshops. I really enjoyed my day and learned so much about natural skincare and soap-making - best of all, I made lots of gorgeous goodies to bring home with me. Great time - thoroughly recommended.
I had a superb day making soap, lip balms, bath and body goodies. It was fun as well as being informative. We were only a small group so got a lot of 1 to 1 help as well as being given time to mix and blend our own ideas. The raw ingredients were of excellent quality and the whole day passed so quickly!!
Nic and Ben make an impressive team with suggestions when we needed help and time to reflect when we made our own decisions. We had a lovely lunch and were able to take home what we had made. All in all a brilliant day.
An enjoyable morning, learning new beauty recipes, Nic was great, with lots of good tips, it was definitely a worthwhile workshop.
I had a fantastic time at the Natural Skincare workshop. It was a small group, so we received loads of attention and advice. I learned so much! Nic and Ben have a wealth of knowledge and are such lovely people. The time just flew and I left feeling that I had been fully absorbed in every moment. It was such a treat to leave with lovely goodies that I'd made myself, and which I'm continuing to enjoy. I especially love my balm bar :) Thank you, Nic and Ben, and hope to see you again for Soap Making.
My daughter and I came along to a beginners' soapmaking workshop last week. Really enjoyed it, Nic & Ben are very welcoming, and are patient and helpful tutors. We were delighted with our soaps. Thank you both and hope to come again for another of your workshops.
My gorgeous 'Spa Box' has arrived and boy what a gorgeous smell. I can't wait to pamper myself. I love your packaging too. I know a few friends who would be quite jealous. Lx
I've attended both the 'Natural Skin Care Workshop', and the 'Introductory Soap Making Course'. I enjoyed both very much.
I ordered a couple of gift boxes as Christmas presents and was really impressed with speed of delivery and presentation. Good value too! (Would post on FB but recipients would see ;-))
Really pleased with everything! The goats milk and honey soap is lovely for my sensitive skin. The soap tray set will be perfect for gifts, I will definitely buy more!
I was given a Lemongrass Soap, and was really impressed by the fragrance (it really does make you feel wide awake in the morning) the quality and the beautiful packaging... so much so that I have now bought a Gorgeous Gift Box as a present for a relative.
I brought your gorgeous Mint lip balm when you where showing your lovely products in Shaftesbury. The lip balm has been an oustanding success so will be ordering again, perhaps Orange this time. Looking forward to seeing you in Shaftesbury again.
Love love love my soaps and truffles!!! Thank you so much, can't wait to try them out. I spotted your page off someone on instagram. And thought I would have a nosey so glad I did, they smell good enough to eat. Even my little one has asked for me to get her some. Thank you so much for your help nic. Will definitely be buying againx
I love natural products and these do not disappoint. My gift box arrived very quickly and I am really pleased with the contents. Thank you!
I just received the gift box I ordered and everything's divine!! I think I'm going to have to order another one for me!!
Fantastic produce. Fantastic customer service. What more can we say ... keep up the good work! Thank you.
I've been using the Shea Butter soap for weeks and its lovely, feels moisturising, smells divine and is lasting really well
I love my lipbalm- a quality product that has lasted for ages. Have ordered several bars of soap for Christmas presents and I'm sure my family will love them as much as I do!
Really loved the soap. Makes my bathroom smell divine! Looks great, feels so creamy, and lasts a long time.
I went to 2 Fayres last weekend, and other makes of soap were much more expensive, and smaller bars.
