Course testimonials:

  • Angellita said: I enjoyed the small class, the practice and how the teacher educated us with the soap making. The entire class was full of fun! Thanks Sherlee.

  • Sonya said: A really wonderful training course with an excellent tutor. Excellent reading materials were provided and tuition. A training course that really "gives back" to the the learner, far more than I expected. As well, I noticed that the tutor was generous in allowing the class to use oils and products to learn with. I would highly recommend this course to anyone, it is cost effective compared to other training courses, safety conscious, and most enjoyable.
