Event description

Description

More and more of us are enjoying using essential oils in our day to day lives, however very few of us understand what they really are and how they are made. Come along on this workshop where we will:

  • take a look at some of the plants that produce essential oils as we wander around Archerfield Walled Gardem

  • learn why plants make essential oils and how they are produced

  • experience a live essential oil distillation on a traditional copper still.

All attendees will leave with a bottle of produce from the day.

A follow on workshop the same afternoon will offer the opportunity to make a natural cosmetic product of your very own using our freshly distilled floral water. As well as having the opportunity to design your own natural cosmetic product and have a play around with some ingredients, we'll also be disussing what natural cosmetics are. As natural cosmetics are becoming increasingly popular, few of us are able to decipher ingredient labels and we therefore have to trust that cosmetic makers have a similar definition of natural to us... and then there are all the different certifications; vegan, organic, cruelty free, ecocert, fair for life and cosmos to name a few! We'll discuss what some of these ingredients and certifications are actually about and hopefully come away with a better understanding of what natural means.

This tack-on workshop will run between 1.5 and 2hrs, depending on how long it takes for people to make their own product! It will follow on directly from the essential oil workshop.

This workshop is being run by Dr. Sally Gouldstone from Seilich botanicals (www.seilich.co.uk); a small East Lothian company that grows wildflowers and uses them to produce essential oils.
