Essential Oils

Discover the power of plants.

There are many claims about the beneficial uses of essential oils, from an improved sense of wellbeing and medicinal properties, through to their effectiveness in industrial cleaning.
​​​​​​​

In this session, you will use steam distillation to extract the oils from a range of plant samples and consider the different ways in which they can then be used.

Tickets are available to book online. Booking will close at midnight on the Wednesday before each session.
On the day, please head to the main Science Centre reception with your ticket and a member of staff will take you to the lab.​
