We have a range of bookable workshops. Groups can can come and learn about the basic of natural scent making and how to blend them.

The Workshops

Workshops will last for about 1.5 hours and will be hosted by Lucy Heale, Founder of the The London Refinery. 

Natural Fragrance and Candle Making

Attendees will start with learning about how our sense of smell works and how fragrance affects are 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 of the wax, blending of the oils, and finish with pouring their own 180ml candle to take home. Each workshop participant will have their own blending equipment, mixing jug, whisk and glassware.
