    But what an informative session with Melanie, full of fun facts and fragrant inspiration, learning about notes and fragrance families.

    I really enjoyed today, Melanie is bubbly and superfun.

    My first fragrance creation will be kept in a museum (one day) and for that I'm really thankful for all the great tips and advice. And the scones were perfect!

  • Sharon Larkworthy

    "My daughter bought me the full day Aromatherapy Masterclass with Melanie as a birthday gift that we enjoyed together. It was a marvellous treat of a day. We learned such a lot, enjoyed meeting new people over a glass of grape with a delicious 3 course lunch, and not only that - we took home a bag full of wholesome organic one-of-a-kind pampering goodies we created ourselves using professional ingredients and packaging. As I travelled the next day it’s taken me a while to post my review... what reminded me was being out this morning with a group of friends who all loved my pulse point energy roll-on oil. “It smells so good, what’s in it?” “Where did you get it?” “Ohhh that smells sooo good” etc as they passed it around.
    Thank you Melanie. For sharing your passion and blending expertise ... best birthday pressie in years!!
