What you'll do

Incense doesn't just smell incredible - burning it can promote relaxation, reduce stress levels, aid sleep, and encourage us to become more mindful and kind. Wouldn't you love to learn how to make it?

In this workshop:

  • Learn from a skilled aromatherapist how to make incense
  • Get introduced to basic Ayurveda principles which can improve your life
  • Step away with your own beautiful smelling incense

Ayurveda's central pillar is the belief that our health and wellbeing are dependent on our mind, body and spirit being balanced. We may not realise it, but incorporating holistic rituals into our day, such as burning incense, possesses the power to totally transform it.

When we observe a holistic ritual like this, we often find ourselves slowing down and entering a state of flow. As soon as we shift our focus away from other distractions and surrender to the present, the moment becomes sacred. In the same way that a simple act like burning incense can do this, it also has the power to change our homes.

In ancient ceremonies bark, bushes and resin were burned for their energy purifying properties. You'll be looking at heavenly aromatics like patchouli, rose and thyme which can cleanse your home when burned. Your host will share their knowledge about their magical properties before you make your own Ayurvedic incense ropes and cones. Step away with your lovely creations and a holistic approach to your health.

This workshop was amazing, calming and a really good opportunity to learn about different scents and how to burn incense. I loved that the workshop teacher wrote down all the ingredients, instructions and relevant info on a piece of paper. And also, I loved that they gave us an opportunity to learn about the meaning of different scents.
