The award-winning team at Peninsula Hot Springs are proud to present their latest wellness experience: Apothecary Workshops in the Glasshouse.

Each month, the team will host a guided 75-minute workshop designed to share knowledge drawn from ancient wisdom and promote connectivity in a relaxed and social setting. You'll have the chance to create your own teas, tinctures, tonics, salves, balms, remedies and scrubs under the guidance of an expert facilitator, before creating a product for your at-home self-care ritual.

After your session, you'll be able to soak in the soothing geothermal waters, explore the saunas and cold plunge pools, and grab a wine or a bite to eat at the onsite cafe. The full workshop schedule is listed below, with bookings available via the website.

Saturday 27 January Essential Aromatherapy
The first Apothecary Workshop involves concocting a meditation oil and writing mindfulness affirmations to bring in the new year. You’ll have time to pause and reflect on dreams and goals for the coming year in a nurturing environment.

Saturday 17 February Herbal Drinks & Tisane
During the February workshop, explore rituals for relaxation and create a calming herbal tea to include as part of your daily self-care ritual.

Saturday 2 March Tinctures & Tonics
As autumn approaches, your facilitator will impart knowledge on the nutritional power of plants and the benefits of Australian Bush Flower remedies. Your created remedy can then be taken home and enjoyed.

Saturday 6 April Living Paper Making
Be guided through the process of making your own paper using plant seeds from the onsite Food Bowl. This workshop will weave together sustainability and the beauty of crafting paper for collages, cards, bookmarks and writing.

Saturday 4 May Tinctures & Tonics
A sleep-focused session where you will learn how to achieve better sleep while making a sleep support tincture. This will pair beautifully with the act of bathing in our healing, sleep-promoting geothermal waters.

Saturday 1 June Balms & Salves
On the first day of winter, you will learn about the incredible benefits of magnesium for movement, and make a magnesium balm to soothe weary muscles. Combined with bathing in the mineral-rich springs, your body will feel cared for and restored.

Saturday 6 July Essential Oil Distilling Workshop
Be taken on a sensory journey as you learn the method of distilling using botanicals picked and prepped by you from the onsite Food Bowl. After distilling your chosen botanicals into essential oils and hydrosols, create a skin-soothing balm or salt scrub to take home and enjoy.
