Christmas Candle & Soap Making

Christmas Candle & Soap Making


In this one day Christmas themed workshop Siobhan Dawson, from The Little Lakeland Soap Company, will teach you about the background to the different scent blends, the properties of each oil and why they were chosen. After watching a demonstration, with help and guidance from Siobhan, you will firstly create a soy wax candle and handcrafted soap bar using a signature "The Little Lakeland Soap Company" scent blend followed by a soy wax candle and soap bar using your own bespoke blend. Your soaps and candles will be perfectly wrapped for you to give as Christmas gifts or to take home and enjoy.

Your soap will contain 100% pure essential oils and will be SLS and SLES free, made using vegetable based ingredients which are vegan friendly and perfect for sensitive skin. The candles are made using natural soy bean wax and 100% pure essential oils. They have a 30-40 hour burn time and come in a 120g glass jar with aluminium lid.

After training as a beauty therapist and gaining further qualifications in aromatherapy Siobhan worked for over 12 years in the industry. In 2014 Siobhan was diagnosed with fibromyalgia (a chronic pain condition) and later with ME, both of which have no cure. While she had seen the benefits aromatherapy had done for her clients over the years, she now began to look at ways she could treat herself with this natural remedy and in 2016 The Little Lakeland Soap Company was born. She hopes that her products will help other people who have experienced conditions like hers, and can in fact be used for many of life’s niggles as well.
