about this event


Emmaline Molly of Valley Botanicals will lead an afternoon of botanically inspired candle making. Begin with a coastal plant walk at Andrew Molera State Park where Emmaline will identify native plants and review their healing properties. You’ll then make your own candle, selecting from three natural scents and adding pressed flowers, ferns or other Big Sur botanicals.

Enjoy an elixir by Sun Potion and lunch from Mercado Sagrado guest chef, Greg Arnold of Darkhorse Organic.

Emmaline Molloy is the creator and owner of Valley Botanicals, a plant-based skincare and candle line based in Big Sur, California. A self-taught herbalist, Emmaline started making wellness and skincare products when it became difficult to find ones which were chemical free. Immersing herself in herbal literature and workshops, she began growing medicinal and native plants and experimenting with her own remedies. Valley Botanicals was created in hopes of expanding Emmaline’s passion for using natural skincare and medicine within the community. All products are handcrafted in small batches and do not contain any chemicals, parabens, or preservatives.
