Handmade with Love
Handmade gifts of love from my heart. Unique handmade gifts for Baby Showers, Wedding Favours and Corporate gifts and giveaways. My passion is to bring you natural, homemade gifts created with natural, raw and Organic ingredients where possible, without any nasty chemicals.
From novelty handmade soaps to ebooks with recipes and tutorials, you will find goodies and gifts that are not only good for your body but also the environment.
I started Handmadewithlove.nz to inspire people to look at everything they use and eat and to encourage them to be able to make soap, beauty and skincare products for themselves. I also do classes in handmade soap and skincare.
If you are interested in doing a course on Bee Keeping I would highly recommend The Bee Hive in Drury, Auckland. Greg is an amazing teacher and you get a wealth of knowledge and hands on practical hive time.
