We would urge anyone who is thinking of starting a candle/soap business to attend Paula's one to one business course first. Paula's course will save you time and money. Her wealth of experience and creative flair has given us so many ideas and focus! Paula really cares about all her start ups. The whole experience has left us so optimistic and excited to start our new business.

I did the one to one candle making business course with Paula. I had a wonderful day! Paula is just lovely. She is welcoming, full of knowledge and experience. I’m grateful to her for sharing this with me. Paula tailored the day to me, my preferences and style. She listened and read me well and I came away with more theoretical and practical experience than I expected! Thank you Paula. X

I definitely recommend the workshop with Paula(Old Bexley Soap &Candle Co.). My candles smell gorgeous and oils are smelling so nice and natural. I really enjoyed the class and it was nice to have the founder of the brand teaching us. You come away with two beautiful scents that would make lovely presents and look very professional.

As a complete novice I completed the one-to-one candle making course for business in January 2024 and came away feeling knowledgeable, empowered, and ready to take the next step in producing candles for my business. Everything I needed and wanted to know was covered from making a candle, burn testing, best suppliers, compliance with legislation, marketing etc etc. Nothing was too much for Paula , she was very patient, extremely knowledgeable and warm, all in a lovely conducive environment. The finish time was not stipulated which was great as I did not feel under pressure and plan to complete the diffuser course also. All in all, the course was invaluable and would highly recommend for anyone who is serious about undertaking a candle making business.

I got to learn technical side and Legal which will push my potential business the right way. I'm super excited for what the future holds for me and thats because of Paula and her teachings. Thank you once again

I have just had a one-on-one day course with Paula learning candlemaking and a guide to setting up your own business. I felt the course was very informative. Paula answered all the questions I had and was very thorough. The booklet she gave is very good to refer back to. I would highly recommend this course to anyone. Thank you so much for a wonderful day!

Paula was amazing, learnt so much from her, she has so much knowledge on candle making. It was a great day with Paula and she showed me me everything I needed to know. Can’t thank you Paula enough for teaching me and helping me, and the support after has been great too. Thank you very much Paula
Claire Bullen - 15 June 2023
From my first call with Paula, I could tell that she was very experienced and had a wealth of knowledge and expertise. I had a one-to-one business session with Paula, we already have a candle brand but were looking for some help with the production and learning more about the business side. Even before the course, Paula went out of her way to do some homework for us, which was crucial to our personal situation. The day was so informative, Paula is a great teacher and mentor, she not only teachers you how to make luxury candles but also gives you lots of really useful tools to help you create a successful business. Paula has already helped out after the course with some questions, and that's the great thing about this course Paula will continue to answer questions and is genuinely interested in the success of her students and their business. I would not hesitate to recommend Paula and her candle-making course, I feel so grateful to have found her and I have no doubt I will be back soon on another course to expand our help business. Thank you, Paula.
