Aromatherapy & Herbal Seminars and Classes

Kolya Naturals offers a variety of classes and seminars in our Edmonton boutiques so you can learn to make custom skincare and other botanical goodies at home. Our raw ingredients are derived from natural sources, such as plant butters, essential oils, waxes, and more. Feel free to sip a cup of organic, artisan tea from our botanical apothecary during the class- find our Tea Menu here! 

All ingredients used in our seminars and classes are available for purchase online, in our apothecary or by mail order (international shipping available).

Blending Bar Sessions (classroom style)

Each month, a new recipe is featured at Kolya’s Blending Bar.

Our Blending Bar lets you handcraft your very own product with detailed instruction. It takes under an hour and costs only $20. Our Botanical Consultants walk you through the steps, share tips, ingredient highlights, and creative ways to play with DIY ingredients and botanicals.

You will leave with a full-sized product and plenty of inspiration for your next creation!

Tickets are available online – be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram, or sign up for our newsletters to stay in the loop for all Blending Bar events!

  • We do, however highly recommend parents to take the classes and bring the knowledge and fun back into the comfort of your home so you can go at your child’s pace, and keep the handcrafting safe.

  • Although we would love to offer these classes to children, we have an age limit of 15.
  • We do not recommend pregnant women or people with epilepsy take these classes.

  • We provide aprons; however, please wear comfortable clothing that may come in contact with oils, etc.

“Kolya’s Apothecary is one of those rare gems that I’m so grateful exists in Edmonton. I have attended four courses there so far, and I can’t say enough about the quality of instruction I’ve received. My expectations were far exceeded on all levels – the recipes, the completed items you take away from the courses and Kellie’s amazing knowledge and personality. However, the courses are not the only bright shiny spot of the Apothecary. Special note must be taken of the high quality and healthy products and the knowledgeable, enthusiastic and ever-helpful staff. Whenever I go into the store for a course or just to buy something, it’s like being on a mini holiday!”
—Shannon Walline

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!
