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:
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.

Bee was so welcoming and such fun to be around. It was a relaxed setting, participants seemed to get along well with each other and I think this was in part due to how engaging our host was. I loved the tips and ideas given and the tactile nature of the workshop. It was so relaxing and enjoyable and would definitely recommend it. Absolutely loved it! PS this would make a great Christmas gift!
A really lovely workshop with B who is so informative and enthusiastic about her lovely products. The incense is lovely and it was nice to do something practical to see what goes into making the end product. The location and staff at the Prior were also really helpful. Thanks
Loved everything about that workshop! Loved the good vibes, the well presented tables, the welcoming and friendly host . The experience was fun and I can't wait to do my own incense in the future. Everything was perfect. Many thanks!
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.
Fantastic workshop! Making incense was great fun and I'm really inspired to try it at home!
Loved everything about this workshop! Really well priced, love that we took a box of things home to play with. A fun and wholesome thing to do on a Saturday afternoon.
