What you'll do

T h e r e a r e n o w a s t e d e f f o r t s i n n a t u r e. E v e r y t h i n g h a s a p u r p o s e. I have had a love of the natural perfumes of essential oils since I was a child. These pure plant extracts have always been pleasing to my nose and have many health benefits. In this fun and creative workshop I will introduce you to pure perfume. Perfume straight from nature with no added solvents, synthetics, endocrine disrupting chemicals or carcinogens. You will experience certified pure dōTERRA essential oils and will learn about the properties and benefits of many aromatic plants. You will then follow your nose to create your own personalised perfume (pure-fume). If you wish, your personalised fragrance can contain beautiful crystal chips. The crystals will infuse your perfume with the added benefits of the chosen stone and will make your personalised perfume extra special. Crystals not for you? No problem, an empty roller can be used. If you want to make more than one perfume, simply pay for each additional perfume on the day. You will also have the opportunity to purchase the pure essential oils I use at wholesale prices, so you can use them at home and create your own natural products. I am more than happy to supply you with toxin-free product recipes and essential oil information to get you started.

Merryn

After 18 years in the beauty, skincare and makeup industry, I am now a teacher, creative entrepreneur and essential oil educator with a love of the Earth, sustainable practices and natural wellness. As a child, I did not know about toxic synthetic fragrances, but my body told me that it didn’t like ‘fake smells', as I called them. The smell of air freshener would immediately make my stomach flip, which would often result in me being physically sick. In contrast, I would, (and still do), pick young leaves, especially eucalyptus, and break them up in my hands and bring right up to my nose to smell the essential oils. Such wonderful, natural aromas make me feel happy and rejuvenated. I now love to use natural ingredients to create my own beautiful products and take great joy in sharing the experience with others.
