Learn how to make natural perfume at this workshop in Sydney.

You don’t have to pay $100 an ounce to smell delicious, and you don’t have to settle for cheap, alcohol-laden synthetics, either.

Create your own signature perfume blends with essential oils, resins, and absolutes. You’ll have the opportunity to sample and use up to 30 essential oils or create a tried and tested formula to make your own bath salts before crafting your way up to Eau de Toilette.

By using the right combination of single oils or blends, you can gain benefits from the aromatherapy without the effects of synthetic fragrances. You’ll feel more energetic and gain a clearer frame of mind, increased emotional support, as well as calming feelings that relieve stress and anxiety.

Not only is it healthy and therapeutic, but you will have fun trying out dozens of your own recipes.

At the end of this workshop you will take home six naturally fragrant products:

  • Eau de toilette
  • Solid perfume balm
  • Bag of bath salts
  • Roll-on perfume oil
  • Air freshener/body mist

I love working with botanical products. As an Aromatherapist and Herbalist, I am constantly inspired by the potential Nature offers us by way of complex medicinal and aromatic constituents. We can use these for healing, wellbeing and beauty. I have been making skincare since 1998 as I was not happy with the chemical additives in products bought off the shelf. My artisan products have been sold through my aromatherapy clinic along with herbal remedies, teas and elixirs. Today, as a mother of three, I have focused on creating toxin free, natural perfumes and aromatherapy-based skin oils with a view to providing safer alternatives to commonly used body products. I have created naturally fragranced products for Mucota brand (Korea) and BeMe Fragrances (Australia).
I have established a natural aromatherapy skincare line and natural perfume range under my name Sonia Washburn Sydney, blending the benefits of essential oils for skin care and aromatherapeutics to enhance wellbeing.
