Hello There

My name is Christina

I am the instructor for the online courses on this platform. I am also the creator of Natural Nerd – a blog which shares my recipes for natural products. I have taught hundreds of students to make their own natural products including soap bars, liquid soap and cosmetic emulsions. I have hosted both demonstration-only lectures, as well as interactive workshop events. My students have varied from cosmetic business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs to frugal moms and hobbyists.

What My Students Say

Don't take my word for it, ask my students.


Patricia Bremner

Creams & Soap Bar Workshop

“What a wonderful workshop and so much info. Thanks Christina.”


Nola Mattinson

Creams & Lotions Workshop

“The course itself was fantastic. It was well balanced between theory which is important in understanding how and why we do what we do in the process, and the practical was a brilliant way of solidifying the theory. I loved every minute of the creams and lotions course. Christina teaches so well. She is knowledgable and open and shares her knowledge freely. It really encourages learning and experimentation. I will definitely come on another course.”


Colleen Lawrance

Creams & Lotions Workshop

“Christina is a remarkable person with a noble intention. She is very organised, and her workshops are of a very high standard. I appreciated getting information that she shares freely, that would otherwise have taken me hours of research. I really enjoyed myself and am loving using the products that we made. Her workshops are highly recommended. ”


Joanna Baikoff

“I loved the soap-making workshop I went on. It was very well run and very informative, and I recommend it to anyone looking for more cost-effective and natural alternatives. ”
