Having an appreciation for the natural ingredients, understanding where they come from and their precious qualities can inspire us to bring a whole new level of awareness to our natural environment.
Holding this workshop at RHS Garden Wisley allows us to connect to many of the plants that yield the ingredients we will use in our plant infusions.
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.

“I have just attended one of Laura’s workshops where we made our own perfumes using her essential oils with the support of her wealth of knowledge on the oil’s properties and the best way to blend the oils we individually chose to make up. It was such a beautiful morning, Laura is a great facilitator allowing us to be led to make our own choices entirely – all the perfumes we made were so unique to each individual person – no doubt responding to our particular needs at the time. I came away with two beautiful perfume blends and a great respect for Laura’s knowledge and her gentle presence. Thank you Laura.” Debra S, Australia
