Natural Fragrance and Candle Making with London Refinery
Tuesday 18 September (6.30pm-8.30pm)
hand putting a candle wick into a glass jar

This practical workshop will teach you how the human sense of smell works and how fragrance affects our mood and emotions. You will learn about the different fragrance families – including what top, middle and base notes are – before using your newly found skills to blend your own unique scent out of essential oils and create your candle.

Each participant will create their own 180ml natural soy wax candle to take home. 

This workshop will last for 1.5 hours and will be hosted by Lucy Heale, Founder of the The London Refinery.

Due to the use of hot materials and essential oils, this workshop is not suitable for those under 16 or pregnant women.
