1.5 hours Class size 10 to 150     label £55
Join us for a unique session exploring the ancient, devotional art of incense. This creative, practical workshop focuses on using premium natural materials, such as resins, herbs, flowers, spices, and essential oils selected for their historic, therapeutic, fragrant, and magical resonance.
You will be introduced, via smell and touch, to a variety of plant botanicals including essential oils, understand their history, their uses, and how to select and blend them to create your own beautiful and unique incense.
We will make 2 sets of recipes - the first as a group with a tried and tested recipe, to understand the technicalities of the process. Then, with guidance, you will be able to select your own choice of ingredients with which to make a bespoke, individual cone recipe.
We will explore:
  • History of incense and types of incense
  • Fragrant natural ingredients, essential oils, and binders and how to work with them
  • Safe preparation and creative blending guidelines
  • Troubleshooting to ensure your cones burn evenly and smell great
  • Safety, dilutions, storage, creating a formula, and record keeping
You will leave this session with two batches of cone incense (approx. 12-20 cones, depending on size and texture), one set made to a recipe, and the second batch your personalised recipe with further suggestions on ingredients, blending, and adapting recipes at home.
This session is ideal for anyone who is fascinated by incense, enjoys experimenting with plants and fragrance, and who wishes to make clean, therapeutic, and bespoke incense for their personal use or as gifts.
Please note the cones will need approx. 24 hours to fully dry out at home - we will supply a box to store and transport your cones home safely!

Have you ever noticed that candles make everything better? We did, but we kept finding ourselves settling for candles that were made from synthetic fragrance and paraffin. And they were too expensive to light every day. Because of this, we spent a year testing hundreds of fragrances, mixing waxes and experimenting with wicks to create the kind of candles we’d been searching for. This is how Yougi was born!
We started our candle-making workshops as a way of sharing our knowledge and love of candles and aromatherapy. We are proud to say that our candles are cruelty-free, vegan, ethically sourced, eco-friendly and 100% natural.
Come and join us for a feel-good workshop and make your own soy candle with essential oils.
