We are looking forward to The Soane's Kitchen Candle Making event in at the Soane's Kitchen Ealing on Friday.
We will be making blends inspired by the Soane's Kitchen Garden. The garden even in the winter is full of herbs, thyme, sage, and rosemary and in the summer the garden is full of flowers and vegetables which complement each other, which helps to prevent and bugs and disease.

'The Soane's were keen gardener's recording what they planted in their notebooks and accounts. They grew fruit, vegetables, and herbs for use in cooking and preparing medicines. One of the first things that Soane did after buying Pitzhanger Manor was to design the grounds. He decided to extend the walled kitchen garden of the original early 18th-century house with its strawberry beds and mulberry tree. The garden has been restored to the time of the Soanes, a team of volunteers tending to the heritage fruit, vegetable and flowers'

The candle making workshop will last for 1.30 -2 hour and will be hosted by Lucy Heale, Founder of the The London Refinery and the team behind the beautiful restaurant Soane's Kitchen. You will be greeted with a refreshing welcome drink and some delicious canapés to set you up before the candle workshop begins.
Natural Fragrance and Candle Making
Attendees will start with learning about how our sense of smell works and how fragrance affects our mood and emotions. They will then learn about the different fragrance families and what top, middle and base notes are. They will then learn how to use the range of essential oils to blend into their own candle.
They will start by heating the wax, then pick from two Soane's Kitchen Garden inspired fragrance blends, and finish with pouring their own 60ml travel candle to take home. Each workshop participant will have their own blending equipment, mixing jug, whisk and glassware provided.
