Vanessa Leong Botanical Bath & Body

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...


Since commencing in 2013, Vanessa's short workshops in making soap, candles and lotions, have attracted over 2000 attendees, not only locally but also from interstate and overseas. Most have come to enjoy the creativity and company of like-minded people, learn new skills and just have fun, while others have taken up their new hobby with enthusiasm and passion!

We are currently taking a break from scheduled workshops until further notice.

A small selection of Vanessa Leong soaps can be purchased in the local gifts section at DFS Galleria, The Rocks, 155 George St, Sydney.
