Event description

Description

Imagine, the fragranced garden rose of your parent’s house, the smell after the rain in a summer forest, a bouquet of flowers on a Sunday morning, the smell of hay in the sunny countryside... Memories are most emotional when triggered by scent. Do you have a relaxing memory of nature that you would like to bring into your home?

The secret behind how smell triggers memories and emotions lay on the anatomy of the brain. When an odorant enters our nostril, the information is processed first by the olfactory bulb which has a direct connection to the amygdala and hippocampus: the areas in the brain implicated in emotion and memory!

During this workshop we will create a beautifully scented candle that will bring you back to those relaxed good memories out in nature. By exploring, firstly, a variety of different scents we will learn how certain scent compositions work and play with their properties. Once we have the fragrance ready, we will learn how to prepare the blend with the wax and get our candles ready.
