This class was fantastic - Kirsty was so very knowledgeable and was so happy to teach us all she knew. The balm smells wonderful, and feels so good on my heels and elbows in particular. And the perfume roller was an added bonus! I look forward to trying again soon on my own

I thought that I was going to miss out on this class, because I wasn't well the night I had originally booked, but Kirsty was gracious enough to rebook me. This was appreciated so much as I had been looking forward to the class. Thank you Kirsty!

The class run by Kirsty was very informative - she appears to be quite passionate and knowledgeable about natural skincare and indeed promoting the DIY nature of it too.
It's not so scary now - I look forward to replicating the recipes that were presented and extending my own knowledge in this area.
