  Vivienne has taught workshops since 2004.

Here’s what people have said about her classes over the years…..

“Really enjoyed the day. The obvious passion that Vivienne has for her topic. The hands-on was great combined with the wonderful smells were ‘amazing’. Would not hesitate to recommend this course. Leaves me wanting more. Thank you.”

“So interesting … and the spa treatments were a lovely ending. Vivienne is wonderful“

“Great day, very informative, you made it all look so simple. Very social and the room smelt FAB.”

“Just finished that serum we made in your class. It was the best thing I ever used for my skin.

My skin is so good now, I don’t have to use foundation any more.”

“Thank you for a lovely course. I found it really helpful and practical. Looking forward to cooking up some of my own lotions soon.”

“Fantastic 2 days. An interesting and very inspiring teacher. Loved every minute of it!”

“Attended both the natural cosmetic and herbal medicine courses in Gorey in January. Both courses were very informative and enjoyable. The only issue is the courses have left me wanting to know more! Thanks Vivienne.”
