What you'll do

In my workshop you will create your very own custom essence to take home as a gift and souvenir from the Spirit of Nature in Iceland. First we will open our senses and learn to listen to the environment around us. We will enjoy relaxation and a chance to balance our selves while tuning in to the elements that we will work with. With her permission we sample what is allowed to create our Essences. A room full of hand harvested samples of Icelandic nature will be presented and you will have a chance to learn about the healing properties and benefits of each one. We will also delve into aromatherapy oils as well as crystals and other powerful elements. A fun day to nurture all of our senses in a safe and comfortable environment. I will guide you on how to create the custom scent made just for you that you will enjoy anytime you spray and breath in the experience that is captured on this amazing journey and in a beautiful cobalt blue glass spray bottle souvenir from Iceland - Spirit of Nature. Rebalance anytime when you spray and breath in your lovely creation fully charged by all the elements.
We will with gratitude return our elements back to nature as we complete the process. All supplies included. You will be served and have an opportunity to make your own tea sample to take home as well as other gift and lovely snacks. Nurishing all the senses is a part of this magical jouney

Having travelled and lived in many different countries I came back to my home land of Iceland with a whole new appreciation for the wonderful nature that Iceland has to offer. Unique in so many ways with clean water and air, geysers, waterfalls, glaciers and geothermal energy. A natures child by heart. My collective experience including a Bachelor degree in design, work experience such as floral design and my own design boutique as well as guiding groups and taking tours such as mushroom hunting and wine tasting and food pairing led me to a Certification course on Vancouver Island Canada to become a certified Nature Essence Practitioner and learning from a Master.

Where you'll be

Our Essence making will take place in the town of the Lava and Elves called Hafnarfjörður, my hometown where I grew up and where my ancestry is from. It is located between Keflavík airport and Reykjavík. We will meet up on Víðivangur and you will be contacted prior to your arrival and after you sign up for the workshop experience. A beautiful location close to town, shops, cafes, beach and parks

We had such an amazing experience with Swan creating our essence of Iceland! Her knowledge and passion for this experience were incredible! We had such a great time, and I'm thrilled with what we created with Swan's expert guidance and we get to enjoy it for months to come. No better way to remember Iceland and the amazing trip we had, than the refreshing and calming scents we created with this experience. Thank you Swan!

Swan provided a really wonderful experience. She was gracious and welcoming, extremely generous with her time, her knowledge and experience. She had little details showing she puts a lot of effort into the experience. Highly recommended!

After a hectic tour of Iceland by camper van, it was so relaxing to end our trip with this workshop by Swan. She is a gentle soul and made us feel relaxed in her quiet and beautiful home. I loved creating my custom essence using pieces of nature from Iceland. The snacks and tea were good too.

What a wonderful experience! My daughter and I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Swan learning about native and imported plants that we could bring together to create a personal scent to take on our journey ahead. Swan was knowledgeable and welcoming and nourished all of our senses! I hope our paths cross again. This is a wonderful experience away from the hustle and bustle of the tours. #grateful
