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-class are available for purchase in our apothecary or by mail order (international shipping available).

  • 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.

  • 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!”
