In this unique workshop, you will create your own essential oil scent-blend to take home, as well as a poem or short piece of writing. The workshop explores how the techniques for composing and blending a scent can be compared to the process of working with words – carefully selecting ingredients and creating a beautiful blend. You will learn about essential oils and their uses in natural perfumery; techniques in designing and blending a scent. No previous writing experience necessary: the 'poetry' part can mean many things - it may simply be a collection of words inspired by the oils you choose, or a few lines describing the scent and what it means to you. It might simply be a title for your scent! You will end the day with your own unique 10ml scent-blend and plenty of ideas and techniques to build upon.
