Details: Make your own unique and completely natural, organic oil perfume, with the finest quality organic essential oils. Experience and learn about the aromatic ingredients, where they come from and how they can support health and well-being in this practical, sensual workshop.

Cases of skin sensitivities seem to be increasing and many perfumes can feel quite harsh to use on your skin, so choosing a more natural, gentle option is part of the inspiration behind this workshop. Despite the array of fragrance options on the market, many people struggle to find a scent that feels true to them.

In this course you will be introduced to a range of high quality, organic essential oils, experience their incredible scents and discover their effects on health and wellbeing. We will look at the origins of the aromatic ingredients and how they are made into essential oils, giving you an understanding of how precious and potent they can be. You will feel confident to design and make your own unique perfume oil / aromatherapy blend, to take home, using the finest quality ingredients.

The ingredients used will be of the highest quality and organic where possible. 

This workshop is open to all, and no experience is necessary.

Everything will be provided for you although you may like to bring your own notebook and a pen.

Please let Laura know if you have any allergies, especially those pertaining to the skin.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like more details.
