Design your own Luxury Christmas Candle
(Please note that this workshop takes place at Scott's Apothecary Studio, 5 Windward House, Square Rigger Row, Plantaition Wharf, York Place, SW11 3TU)
We all recognise that scent of Christmas, that brings on the nostalgia and makes us think of twinkling lights and good food. Bring the festive smells to your home in this utterly delightful workshop
Spend a relaxing two and a half hours, learning about essential oils, and creating your own unique Christmassy fragrance blends which you will use to scent a candle and perfume oil.
Our guest expert teacher Alice Scott, from Scott’s Apothecary, trained as a nutritional therapist and is hugely passionate about creating natural, eco-friendly candles, beauty products, and cleaning products. She is incredibly knowledgable about the properties and benefits of the different essential oils, and full of tips on how to incorporate essential oils into your daily routine.
Alice will start by talking through some of her huge selection of essential oils, including their key benefits, and give you some ideas for which oils might work well together. There will be LOTS of sniffing involved to decide which fragrances you like and dislike, and which bring on the festive feels!
Once you’ve learnt the basics you will create your own unique blend of oils under Alice’s expert guidance, and combine these with eco-friendly soya wax to create your own luxurious scented candle. Soya wax burns much more cleanly and is much better for the environment than paraffin wax, which many companies use in their candles.
And the best part is once you’ve learnt how you’ll be able to create your own candles at home without any expensive equipment. They make wonderful gifts, and you’ll save yourself a fortune compared with shop-bought candles.
Whilst your candle is setting you can blend a second scent (or more of the same scent if you really love it!) and use it to create a perfume oil in a handy rollerball applicator. Alice can help you create a blend to suit any requirements, whether you want something fresh to wake you up, something to help you relax, or just something that smells nice!
Everyone will go home with their own unique candle and perfume oil in a gift bag, and all the knowledge needed to make more at home. We will even send you a list of supplies you can purchase the materials from.
