Come and experience a day in the beautiful Archeus Apothecary in Hawke's Bay, learning how to make your very own natural perfume.
The art of perfumery has entranced and bewitched over thousands of years. Now, as we are becoming more aware of the health issues around many synthetic fragrances, people are turning back to nature for health and beauty.
The course gives absolute beginners a peek into the world of natural perfumery. Archeus founder, Georgina, will teach you how to create your own perfume blend and guide you through the wonderful process of making natural perfumes.
You will explore and use a selection of therapeutic grade essential oils as well as carrier oils, waxes and butters that can be used in perfumery. Everything we use in the workshop is used in products created in the Archeus Apothecary.
All materials are included in the course fee and you will get to take your own perfume creation home with you.
