On the search for new and creative indoor activities? Learn how to make your own DIY natural perfume at home with Sonia Washburn!

Over two sessions, learn how to blend and make three products: a perfume oil, a solid perfume and a spray EDT perfume. You'll gain the skills to make your own perfumed products for gifts or even to sell as your own signature scent.

In this jam-packed workshop, we'll help you understand twelve essential oils, how to smell them, the best combinations and basic natural perfume composition. Then you can use this information to create your own perfumes.

At the end of the course, you'll have some newfound skills and a kit of gorgeous essential oils to continue to make dozens of perfumed products for yourself or your loved ones!

Please note: If you have a particular natural oil or essential oil you wish to use, please bring it along.

Allergy Disclaimer: Your teacher provides all products supplied for use in this course. Essential oils can cause skin irritation in some cases. It is advised that sensitive individuals check reactivity by doing a skin patch test first. Essential oils must not be applied to the eyes. Essential oils are not to be applied in concentrated doses unless under the supervision of a trained health professional.

Sonia loves working with botanical products. As an Aromatherapist and Herbalist, she is constantly inspired by the potential Nature offers us by way of complex medicinal and aromatic constituents. She can use these for healing, wellbeing and beauty. She has been making skincare since 1998 as she was not happy with the chemical additives in products bought off the shelf. Her artisan products have been sold through her aromatherapy clinic along with herbal remedies, teas and elixirs. Today, as a mother of three, she has focused on creating toxin-free, natural perfumes and aromatherapy-based skin oils with a view to providing safer alternatives to commonly used body products. She has created naturally fragranced products for Mucota brand (Korea) and BeMe Fragrances (Australia).

Sonia has now established a natural aromatherapy skincare line and natural perfume range under my name Sonia Washburn Sydney, blending the benefits of essential oils for skincare and aromatherapeutics to enhance wellbeing.
