This bespoke professional and business workshop, YOU + ME is designed to those wishing to learn (FROM SCRATCH) how to make their own scent compositon that can be used in candles, room sprays, reed diffusers and skincare and aromatherapy businesses. Making scented blends is not only fun but it will make your products stand out from the crowd. If your candle or home scented product has the same scent as other brands (which is very likely particularly if you are using the same suppliers) chances are you will not have a very successful business as there will be not much to differentiate your brand in the Market. I would highly advise all wishing to start a candle making business to understand the importance of scent and how it creates a unique selling proposition - USP. You have probably tried to mix oils yourself but it turns out to be a disaster, simply because if you mix premixed oils chances are you are wasting your own money as they will not change or make you a solid composition that will behave as a perfume in your products.
You will learn:-
Equipment needed to make scents
Importance of scent and what it means to your product advantage
Types of scented material to work with - natural vs synthetics - there are over 100 different notes available at my workshop scent library

In this workshop the scent you make is your own scent formula and no other companies or brands will have it. How unique is that? Come and enjoy learning making fragrance blends for your candle business or home scented products such as reed diffusers and room sprays. If your business is skincare, spa, hotel and aromatherapy this is a great way for your to develop essential oil blends for your product line and your treatments.
