The Course

Learn how to make cosmetics containing natural honey and beeswax. You do not need special equipment and having completed the course will be able to make these recipes in your kitchen.

During the day, Dr Sara Robb will demonstrate how to make All Natural Beekeeper’s Soap with Rose and Lavender using her no-cure method. Made with honey and beeswax and topped with petals, this beautiful bar is safe to use the same day it’s made.

We will also make Honey Hand Cream with Raspberry Seed Oil, a non-greasy emulsion, to keep your hands in tip-top condition and Super Serum with Honey and Hyaluronic Acid, a fantastic facial product made with raw honey.

Join us to make your own Super Natural Formulations.
