Bring a friend to double the fun! Our Botanical Essence Bar has a set of 35 natural essences, including Rose, Jasmine, Amber, Vanilla and many essences that can be used to create either feminine or masculine blends. Using your intuition, as well as our formulas and guidance, you can take a step into the world of fragrance and make a custom perfume. We host you, and our self-published booklet assists and guides you through this joyful and lighthearted process.
About you: I am the owner of a sweet little shop called Artemisia Collage with Nature. I was raised by a naturalist and have spent my life connecting people with the grace and mystery of the natural world. My specialty is fostering people’s creativity and providing an inspiring space and exquisite materials to explore. One way I have done this is by creating a beautiful Essence Bar with inspiring botanicals from all over the world. We have a total of five lovely hosts: Amy, Jen, Crystal, Bella and Ruby each of them gracious teachers who we are sure you will enjoy!
Everything you need to make your own natural perfume! Botanical Essences to blend and a glass bottle to keep them in.
