      Un finde muy completo

      Mi pareja, que tambien hizo el curso, pasamos un finde estupendo, potingueando con los aceites y las plantas, hicimos nuestros jabones y cremas, que me han venido genial. Luego no he practicado mucho pero muy interesante. Ademas Hugo, el monitor y Vicky de la Casa Rural son encantadores. Muy recomendable para escaparte y estar rodeada de cosas naturales!

        Curso de cosmética natural

        Yo estuve participando en el curso anterior y fue una experiencia muy gratificante, a pesar de la hora y media de viaje que tuve que hacer los dos días. Practicando, ya he hecho 4 jabones distintos y la familia y los amigos están encantados. De hecho, mi mujer que se quedó con las ganas aquella vez, lo va a hacer ahora en abril; espero que lo disfrute como yo.La gente estupenda !!! ... incluidos el grupo de fotógrafos que fueron a hacer el reportaje.

          muy por encima de las expectativas...

          El contenido del curso fue muy interesante, estaba muy bien planificadas las sesiones; pudimos practicar haciendo distintos tipos de jabones, cremas y lo más mágico...extraer aceite esencial con el alambique... Hugo, es muy profesional y además encantador. El taller se imparte en una casa rural con mucho encanto; reflejo de lo que son sus propietarios. Vicky (propietaria del lugar) es un verdadero amor... como os decía; muy por encima de las expectativas-. Disfrutadlo!!
