During your session you will learn -
- The difference between natural and synthetic materials and using them in your aromatic blends
- How to utilise top, middle and base notes to structure your blend
- How to use your aroma blend to make eau de toilette, eau de parfum, pure perfume, dry body oils, candles, diffusers etc
Everything you make is yours to take home with you.
