Hi, I'm Lisa from Aroma Shak. I lovingly create natural plant based, aromatherapy skincare products & bath products, i have also created my own essential oil range. I also create beautifully fragranced soy wax candles & soy wax melts.

My handmade journey started 15 years ago. I was very drawn to aromatherapy and the magic of essential oils and started my aromatherapy studies to delve deeper into the magic and healing of the plant world. Through this i discovered my passion for incorporating what i had learnt in my studies and using it to create a naturalskincare range. !
Around the same time i purchased a D.I.Y soy candle making kit - then i was hooked! I have been selling my skincare, candles & melts through markets, shops and more recently online. My products are also used by a local beautician.

Fifteen years on, I still formulate and hand make our eco-luxe natural products. I am now so excited to take the leap and share my passion and knowledge for natural body product creating and of course our soy candle, soy wax melt and diffuser workshops.

My workshops are such a great idea for hen's and bridal shower, birthday parties and team building.

I'm so excited to share my love for handmade with you.

Love x Lisa x

We really enjoyed this workshop. Lisa was a great teacher and keen to share her experience. Lots of fragrance options. The ingredients are very good quality and we easily made beautiful candles, melts and a diffuser. Only 8 people in the class was a perfect number and I think we all went away empowered to make our own at home.

Fantastic Class. Very informative, creative and fun. Teacher was awesome and engaging and learnt a lot from her. Would definitely recommend!

Bernadette Fielding Jul 2023

Lisa and Allira were amazing and patient teachers.
The venue was the perfect quiet space.
I loved how the materials were natural for skin and now my kids skin feel soft after a bath.
The experience exceeded the value for money as we made two coffee trays off bath bombs plus got to take left over product home in a container.

Lisa was a very enthusiastic teacher giving lots of tips for making candles at home after the class as well. The inclusion of a grazing platter and Prosecco was a very welcome touch. It was a great class and really good value for money.

I was the only one to sign up to this class. Lisa instead gave me the instructions and ingredients to make at home. The instructions were easy to follow and told me I could contact her anytime if I had any questions. I have been to another of her classes and she was great. Definitely would recommend to anyone

We had a group of 10 with a mix of kids, teens and adults and everyone had a great time! Lisa was really knowledgeable and responsive and I would definitely recommend her class!

Amy Scurr Jan 2023

Lisa was amazing!
We had Lisa come to us for a Hens Weekend and we had the best time!

She had so many options for our scrubs, soaks, masks and oils so everyone could make something that they loved. We left with so much more than we expected to and there were smiles everywhere, especially from the bride-to-be.

Great time and definitely recommend Lisa and her infectiously bubbly personality!

A Lovely ,relaxed and generous afternoon spent with a very Knowledgeable and patient teacher. The products where organic and varied. Essential oils all smelt absolutely beautiful, we had a wide range to choose from. The products we made and took home where stunning, all natural and made to suit my skin. It was also wonderful to have printed instructions and the ability to write down the recipes and information we received.

This was a great class, and my kids loved it! The teacher, Lisa, was very warm and friendly with the kids, and very knowledgeable. The kids got to add so many fun things to their bath bombs too! Crystals, glitter and flower petals! It was great value for money. Definitely a great class and a fun activity for the kids.

The trainer was friendly and helpful. She provided a yummy morning tea which provided socialisation for me. The trainers instructions were clear and transparent and offered loads of ideas. She took the time to help each participant when needed. The products provided to make the candles was exceptional and generous. The trainer was conscious of safety at all times thus providing a safe workspace. I absolutely had a great morning making new friends and achieving scented candel making products to take home. These workshops are affordable for me and a great opportunity to meet new people and learning knew and fun skills.

Sue Beltran Jul 2022

The teacher was absolutely unbelievably wonderful. Nice very informative in all round excellent class. Would highly recommend

Jan Benz Jul 2022

Lisa was fab! The venue was great & easy to find - even had local live music in the background :) Everything was thought of and provided, right down to the bubbly, cheese and crackers, and amazing local artwork on the walls! We had so much fun as a small friendly class with Lisa who had fun teaching us too I think :) Sensational for a relaxing gf's get-together, would be great for mums & kids too. We made some stunning goodies incl bath bombs, shower steamers, body scrub and bath salts, which we could take home at the end.
The best thing was that all the ingredients are natural & vegan - so they are pretty without killing our planet.
Reckon we could put Lush outta business ;)
Two thumbs up for Lisa and this class
