My name is Lucie.
I am a French foodie, traveler and mother of 2 – and most importantly I am keen to explore new eco ways of living with my family.

Hence came the idea that I could bring families/friends/colleagues together and help them create their own cosmetics and household products in a friendly and fun atmosphere.
I run regular workshops around Chester and the area and bring a stronger eco-focused mindset to the community.
Come and join the next workshop edition to contribute to a sustainable planet!
During national lockdown, I have worked hard on my own range of natural homemade soaps that I launched on the market in November 2020.
I offer DIY cosmetcs, household cleansing products, soaps making workshop session.

This was a lot of fun to do and hopefully there will be some nice soap in a few weeks! Lucie was super patient and able to walk me through all the steps, making sure we handled the materials safely. Looking forward to seeing how it all turns out :-) Thank you!
