I had a lot of fun doing this class! Sarah is an amazing, bubbly, knowledge and lively teacher and she made the class very engaging! She had a variety of options for oils, decorations and bottles giving us control over what we were making, to get the most enjoyable result :))

Sarah was very friendly and knowledgeable, the small class sizes mean that you get the opportunity to ask questions. Happy with my perfumes :)

Sarah was so warm and inviting with so much knowledge of her craft and how to apply it. She made sure we loved each product and I will absolutely book again! Everything was provided and the venue was perfect too.

Sarah was lovely and answered all of our questions, she was educated on the product she was using and having us create for the workshop which was great.

There were a couple of things though I did feel would have been beneficial to know, such as, if usual premium glassware (as pictured) wasn’t available (which it wasn’t when we arrived, a couple bottles were just slightly bigger, not clear like the image). I assumed we’d have nice clear bottles to show off the pretty florals (just like the image) that is why I booked the workshop and drove all the way from the Gold Coast; they looked beautiful in the photos! And was exactly what I was looking for, but upon arrival the bottles were mostly coloured and solid, which was not what I thought I paid for and I couldn’t see any of the beautiful florals inside. The only clear containers were for the scrubs, which just look like a glass jar of coffee and salt. There isn’t any pretty stuff that goes in there anyway.

The venue was also a little sterile and bland, not much of an atmosphere being at the back of a library in what seemed like a lunch room. I had higher expectations for the price I paid and feel I didn’t received what was pictured. If I had of known I wouldn’t have spent that much money and paid an extra $30 each person for ‘premium’ glassware, if that just meant a couple if the jars were simply, slightly bigger. I wouldn’t have spent even more on fuel and driven an hour and a half away from GC to Brisbane to attend to a library lunch room. It was a bit disappointing as it was also for my mother’s birthday.

The natural perfume making course was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Sara was so friendly and helpful. Plus, we left with a beautiful collection of homemade goodies ready to use.

Sarah was so knowledgeable about all of the oils and I am obsessed with the products I got to take home- they are so cute.

Thoroughly enjoyed this class! Sarah was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and patient! Such a large variety of fragrances that everyone would be able to find on that suits them best! She was also very accommodating with dates/times and location! Very good value for money as well. Would definitely recommend!

Sarah and her friend were fantastic at guiding us through the perfume process. I had my 8 year old daughter whose birthday present was this class. She had a great time and it was easy to follow along and make the products.
The venue was well equipped and very handy for us. We both learnt a lot and will have fun in the future making things together.

I really loved this workshop and it's the best DIY skincare workshop that I've been to. The venue was actually really nice and relaxing and Sarah is a wonderful facilitator, I'm usually pretty nervous but I found Sarah to be really warm and easy to spend time with, and always helpful when I had questions. Some workshops that I've been to say they're DIY but actually it's really complicated and expensive, but this workshop is exactly what I needed, cheap and easy ways to make gorgeous skincare products at home that really work. Everything was natural and I left with some great products and knowledge, I'm already planning the christmas present's that I'll make! I would also really recommend this workshop also to anyone on NDIS, it was calming and easy to understand. Please treat yourself and do this workshop you won't regret it!

Sarah was extremely accommodating to our little group and all of us has a great time!
The aesthetics of the finished results were mesmerising! Being able to create our own personalised smell was something I am able to enjoy when I walk past my jars at home. Not only do they smell nice we were able to learn about the benefits of our favourite oils and personalise our body oil to our life needs. From energy to healing stretch marks we were each accommodated and walked through one on one how to create our personalised oils and perfumes and how they can benefit our lives.

This was for a hens event and was a calm yet fun experience for all of us!
I would 100% recommend for individuals and groups to do as an enjoyable afternoon activity.

Thanks Again Ladies

The class was easy to find and had heaps of parking.
Sarah was so welcoming and explained what we were doing, where the oils came from and the difference and interaction between the top, middle and bottom notes of a perfume.
I got to choose 2 pretty perfume bottles and a dropper bottle from an assortment Sarah had available.
I was lucky enough to be the only one booked into the class, so had a wonderful 1 to 1 experience. Sarah even threw in a lovely little bag to hold my perfumes in.
Absolutely recommend this class, especially if you're looking for a natural perfume.

Sarah ran a wonderful perfume making class for my daughter's 10th birthday party. The girls really enjoyed making their own perfume that they could take home. Sarah's communication was fantastic and the personalised perfume menu was very sweet.
Highly recommend Sarah!

Sarah was very friendly, patient and knowledgeable. She made sure we were happy with the scents created at each step and provided helpful suggestions. The class was fun and informative and it was great learning more about top, middle and base notes.

Love my new perfumes and am already wearing them everyday! Sarah was really attentive, remembering what scents I liked and recommending combinations that would complement each other. When one mix didn't go to plan she helped me redo it quickly. I'm not super interested in some of the health benefit claims of the oils and Sarah was really respectful in asking us about our interests in the process and tailoring the info she provided to suit us.

Sarah was lovely and genuine and really cared if we had a good time and enjoyed what we made. She was very patient as we struggled to make choices and helped us fix things if they weren't quite right. She had a lot of interesting options however I think I might have also enjoyed having a few floral scents to pick from too.

Sarah was wonderful, she explained the different levels and notes of the scents. We used crystals and rose buds & petals to enhance the mind, body, soul and fragrance experience.
