Create a beautiful scented soy candle inspired by our botanic gardens here at Wakehurst.
Perfumer and fragrance expert Sara Lucia will take you step-by-step through the candle-making process in this two-and-a-half-hour workshop.
Learn about scent, essential oils and how to create an appealing fragrance that evokes a mood or reminds you of a place you’ve visited.
Choose from essential oils like rose, jasmine and lavender, and learn how to blend them to create a unique fragrance.
You'll combine the oils with soy wax to make a natural bespoke candle to take home with you.
Please note: The candles can take up to an hour to dry, so allow time after the workshop for picking these up.
