Under guidance from The Botanical Distillery, you will be challenged to guess the four different, unlabelled essential oils. Don’t be fooled, it’s harder than you think. The winner on the day wins a 50ml hydrosol.
Natural Lip Balm Experience
It’s easy to make your own natural cosmetics from scratch. It’s just like following a recipe. Lip balms are one of the easiest and fun natural skin care products to make. We will show you how to create your very own lip balm using natural ingredients such as beeswax, cocoa butter, almond oil and luscious vanilla.
Fizzy Bath Bomb Experience
Fizzy bath bombs create giant, magical, healthy bubbles in your bath – they spin, whirl and swirl and smell delicious. You will choose your own essential oils to create a fizzy bath bomb which can be used in the bath to reduce stress.
Whipped Body Butter Experience
All good things have a foundation and, the real foundation in having beautiful skin, begins with good skin care. Your whipped body butter will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated for up to 24 hours. Simply choose your colours, choose your fragrance and choose your botanical plants and get ready to blend.

“Getting to know your plants could be the start of a beautiful thing. On my recent trip to Waiheke my alchemic powers were released, a green goddess emerged and I found myself transforming garden-variety leaves into natural cosmetics made with love. The fact I could do this was proof-positive that anyone can – once they know how.”
