Audrey O’Sullivan came to talk and give us a demonstration on how to make bath bombs. She is the founder of “Dandelion Wishes” and is often called “Dandelion”. Audrey showed us how to use items from our kitchen to make these wonderfully scented bath bombs. She used Bicarbonate of Soda , Cornflour and for perfume she used essential oils or you could use the liquid from herbal teabags!
Audrey became interested in soap making when she visited Cornwall in June 2011 and attended a Workshop and then she was hooked. The business took off so eventually she had to give up her job as a Senior Health Trainer in the Community Health Section of the NHS. Dandelion wishes has its own website on Facebook and she sells her soaps, bombs and body butters through the website. The display that Audrey set up looked lovely and the wonderful smells filled the hall. We watched her add glitter and rosebuds to the bombs she was making and the end result was just lovely.
Since Audrey started Dandelion Wishes she has also set up Kitchen Pharmacy Training in Liverpool which run workshops so that we can learn how to look after our skins. The workshops look at medicinal and nutritional properties of natural ingredients found in our kitchen cupboards and fridges. These simple natural skincare products can help treat symptoms of both acute and chronic conditions, such as eczema, arthritis and even the menopause; as well as pampering ourselves and making our skin soft and healthy.
