Join us for a one off, morning sensory walk through the botanical gardens, followed by a picnic brunch and Scent Session workshop at the learning pavilion.

Meet at Begonia house and wander through the Botanical Gardens, stopping to observe, discuss and inhale the fresh scent of a selection of plants before stopping at the learning pavilion for a picnic brunch, prepared by our friends at the Oatery.

After brunch we will begin a Scent Session in the Learning Pavilion. Discover the unique scent and healing properties of over 30 pure, natural therapeutic grade essential oils. Learn about top, middle and base notes, and how to blend your chosen oils together to create your own unique, balanced and beautiful bespoke scent. Your aromatic concentrate will be blended in a base of organic golden jojoba oil and bottled in a 10ml roll on vessel to take home.  

Jemma (your host) is a trained Herbalist, olfactory alchemist and co-founder of the Wellington Apothecary. Having worked with essential oils and other extracts from the plant world for over 20 years, she is an expert at creating beautiful, natural, functional scents and will work with you to create your dream aroma blend.
