Candle Making - Join Jessica from August for an essential oil candle making workshop.

The workshop is a relaxed introduction into the process of using essential oils and natural wax to create botanical candles. Jessica will guide you through exploring and experimenting with the oils to make your bespoke scent blend before hand-pouring your own candle to take home.

We will also discuss why we prefer using natural ingredients in the home, the difference between fragrance and essential oils, different wax types and how scent stimulates the olfactory system evoking memories and helping to create new ones, as well as sharing some candle care tips.
