Scent-sational! Our guests got creative at our recent workshop.

'What is that wonderful smell?'

This is not something we generally hear as visitors know the predominant scent wafting around them is, of course, lavender.

However, when we welcomed our guests for the recent Melt & Pour Soap Workshop, we were treated to gorgeous aromas of orange, grapefruit, may Chang, and bergamot (as well as the classic combination of lavender and rosemary).

Lead by Rachael of Wharfedale Soaps, the relaxing session took participants through the various steps to creating solid bar soaps, beautifully decorated with petals and filled with natural exfoliants.

There was plenty of practical application as everyone got hands-on, melting the shea butter and applying the various essential oils to create tantalising combinations of smell and colour.

Following a pit stop for coffee and cake, everyone got to work, carefully packaging the set soaps with labels and ribbon - perfect for gifting (although a few of the guests were reluctant to let their gorgeous creations go!)

See how they got on in the video below

Here's what a few of our guests had to say about the session:

"My friend and I had an absolutely lovely time at the workshop and were delighted with the soaps we made. There was a friendly atmosphere, the instructions were clear and easy to follow , and nothing was too much trouble for Rachael. Add to this tea, cake and beautiful surroundings it was a perfect afternoon."

"Rachel was lovely. She gave us all clear instructions to make some amazing soaps. I've gifted most of mine as the gift wrap and tags were so pretty. Along with the stickers with all the ingredients on, once we'd finished we had a very professional product. A thoroughly enjoyable day and worth the 2hr drive to get to you"

"I thoroughly enjoyed the soap making workshop on 9th May. I've never done anything like this before but Rachael gave us clear instructions and was very helpful and supportive throughout. I was very impressed with the end results and I would encourage anyone to have a go - it's a really fun way to spend a few hours in a wonderful setting.  Plus the tea and cake was a nice bonus!"
