What you'll do

There's no denying the huge appeal of scented candles. Triggering our sense of smell can have a powerful and positive effect on our mood and wellbeing, which goes some way explaining the love affair many of us have with candles. In this scent blending workshop, experience the sensory delight of creating your own aromatherapy candle to take home and enjoy.

This workshop will begin with an introduction to more than 20 essential oils, allowing you to take time to select the oils you would like to use to create your scent. Your host will provide as much guidance as needed, so you can create a beautiful, balanced aroma for your candle.

You will then go through the step-by-step process of making a candle, with your scent, using soy wax for a natural vegan option. Your candles will be made in a reusable and recyclable amber glass jar with a lid. Be prepared to have an energising and joyful experience - your candles will make beautiful gifts for friends and family too.

Very relaxed atmosphere. Tutor very friendly and helped with any questions. Interesting.

Had a wonderful time! I came with my friend and we had a delightful time looking around Prior shop beforehand. Our host was so calming and genuinely friendly- she had an excellent knowledge and I came away knowing so much about how to blend scents together into something delicious and unique. We learned about top, mid, and base scent notes and there were so many essential oils/essences to blend with. I would recommend to anyone- it was truly unique and value for money.
