Inspired by her love of aromas and cooking, Vanessa creates luxurious soaps and bath/body products using quality natural ingredients. With a focus on plant based ingredients and time-honoured processes, everything is made by hand in small batches in Sydney. Her products do not contain parabens, sulphates, mineral oils or silicones.
Vanessa's studies in Aromatherapy, undertaken some 17 years ago, piqued her interest in essential oils and their ability to heal and uplift. After gaining her qualification as an aromatherapist she began selling her own products at a Sydney market stall. However, with a newborn and other family priorities, this venture was short lived, but she felt destined to return to it one day. A chance meeting with her old Aromatherapy teacher several years ago, was the catalyst for change. A number of ideas had been floating around in her over-thinking head, and finally a plan became clear enough for her to resign from her full-time position as an accompanist & piano teacher. She also never went back to being a lawyer, but that is another story...
Vanessa offers short workshops so that you can experience the satisfaction of making candles and soaps yourself. Ideal for corporate team building, hens' nights or just a unique experience to share with friends, the class sizes are small and you keep what you make. Workshops are held in our studio on level 10 in the Dymocks building, Sydney CBD.
Since early 2013 when our workshops commenced, we have had the pleasure of hosting nearly 2000 people for one or more of our creative workshops! That's a lot of smiling people, busy learning new skills and having fun.
A small selection of Vanessa Leong soaps and lotions can be purchased in the local gifts section at DFS Galleria, The Rocks, 155 George St, Sydney.
We are continuing to update the website to include more products, and working on other sales avenues.
As the studio is NOT OPEN outside of class times, all enquiries are best made by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
