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.

Daizy Almeida Jul 2024


has a great experience on Saturday for the candle making class. Emily was very details and made sure we have a great experience all the material was provided and was carefully taken through the steps. will indefinably recommend it to my friends

Christopher Curnick Jul 2024


Emily, who founded and owns Yougi, ran the class. She was incredibly knowledgable and insightful about the scents and essential oils, and gave us a full insight into how to make candles. All the materials were provided, and Emily let us experiment with whichever essential oils we liked, and my partner and I came away having made 2 lovely smelling candles. (We also were served some complementary peppermint tea whilst we made the candles!)

Arshdeep Kaur Jul 2024


It was a wonderful experience! Workshop was very informative and would definitely attend more workshops in the future.

Kelly English Jul 2024


Lovely workshop. A very relaxing experience, perfect for a date or birthday. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and loved the perfumes that I took home.

Mali Noon-Jones Jul 2024


Such a lovely time with Ailey, and got 2 lovely scents to take home! Thank you

Renee Jordan Jul 2024


This was an enjoyable class. Our teacher Ailey was very helpful and we enjoyed creating original scents. The tea provided was excellent and the class size was perfect.

Angela Miguez Barreiro Jul 2024


I had a great time today. Amy was able to give me some advice on how to improve my perfume to gain the scent I was hoping for.

Tanya Ryder Jul 2024


Loved the class, great teacher great location great value for money as you also get to keep the candle you make which I’m over the moon with would definitely recommend to a friend

Kelsie Okoli Jul 2024


It was an amazing experience. Good value for money and time. I will definitely recommend!

Liam Upson Jul 2024


Fun and creative activity with a lovely handmade candle to treasure.

Brilliant to explore how to sustainably craft a candle with different scents with Emily.

Andrew Gloag Jun 2024


Was a brilliant experience! Booked for work away day of around 30 people split between perfume and candle making. There was plenty of space for the whole group in a light and relaxing setting. The range of oils available allowed everyone to make their own unique scent. The class given by Emily was very engaging and friendly. Everyone in the group had a great time. Will certainly book again!

Anonymised ClassBento student Jun 2024


It’s fun and friendly relaxing environment. The teacher is very helpful and knows a lot about essential oil

Tianna Jun 2024


Ahleigh was so kind and helpful during the process. As we walked in, the room smelt amazing and calming music was playing. Many oils were provided and we learnt that different scents last longer than others. Overall i really enjoyed the experience.

Rachel Murphy Jun 2024


Eilidh was a fantastic teacher, she clearly knows her stuff, was very encouraging and a great guide through the process. Overall I'd say the class was good value as you leave with 2 different 15ml scents that you've personally created to wear / gift.

Elen Carpenter Jun 2024


Wonderful concept and great experience! Aily was a gem, knowledgeable, helpful, entertaining and kind. Enjoyed interacting with other people in the class as well.

Cheryl Corbin Jun 2024


I enjoyed the class, Emily was very warm and friendly atmosphere was good. On the whole I felt that there could have been more interaction, for example how to melt and prepare the wax, maybe a demonstration at the beginning would be helpful, but on the whole a very enjoyable day.

Jane Daley Jun 2024


Good value for money and we enjoyed a pleasant and informative candle making class with our lovely teacher.
Loved all the natural products and smells. Came away with a very professional looking candle. Thank you, we’ll be back!

Whirl Pereira Jun 2024


Loved Emily, well planned workshop, her kindness and intentions for candle making was inspiring. Her light shines through and I am glad I attended the class.

28 ladies at a hen do and yes we loved it all, thank you. Teacher and products were fantastic!!

Lucy Jun 2024


Absolutely wonderful afternoon. Emily was so informative and fun. We learnt so much and left with two fragrances each, that we love.

Ant d'Souza Jun 2024


Fantastic and wholesome workshop, with the mood set the minute we walked into the door. Emily was a fantastic guide too. Will definitely be booking on to another one of her workshops when we’re next in town.

Lisa Evans Jun 2024


A super treat for a dear friends birthday.
Exceeded expectations. The setting was calm, with enough space and products for us all to share.
Excellent explanation of the history of candle making and the processes involved.
Very sorry, I cannot remember the teachers name but she was great, very informative, and gave us all time.
Would definitely return.

Judy Ardley Jun 2024


WE THOROUGHLY enjoyed our aromatherapy candle making class. Our class leader was great at explaining what to do and the different notes that can be obtained from essential oils. Calm, friendly environment. Would love to do another class in the future

Anna Kuruvilla May 2024


Such a good class, would definitely recommend! Really wholesome and inclusive environment and we got to learn about various essential oils while putting together our very own perfume!

Lowri Evans May 2024


A very relaxed class. I booked a voucher as a present for my sister and Yougi were so helpful and accommodating - would definitely attend another event!

Deepa Deb May 2024


The idea of this experience is super. As is the location. And certainly my friends and I had fun. However, we felt our host really lacked experience and was unable to guide us as needed. In addition, a number of the advertised ingredients were not available which was disappointing. I think that if you pay to have a guided experience, it should be appropriately guided. This just wasn’t. Although our guide could not have been nicer, just lacked substance.

Sunita Ramani May 2024


It was a really lovely, relaxing class and I liked the storytelling element, and the fact that we could take our time and weren't rushed. Lots of different essential oils provided so there was plenty of choice!

Caron Power May 2024


A good introduction. An extra 30 minute to an hour of course time would be ideal. Thankyou

Jana May 2024


Hello, I booked this as an alternative activity for a hen party and we all really enjoyed the class. The place was easy to find with the provided travel instructions and the teacher was very informative about the types of perfumes and how they are created. She guided us through understanding and mixing of essential oils and we had lots of materials to work with...real senses overload! The class is a good value for money, you walk away with 2 vials of your own scent and nice memories.

Ciara Browne May 2024


This was for my sister's 30th Birthday. She went with four friends and said it was the best thing she had done in London!
The class was friendly and super informative and the oils and extracts used to make their perfumes were extremely high quality making it fantastic value for money.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to do something fun for a Hen party, Birthday or even a solo experience.

Roshni May 2024


We had the best time creating some lovely scented candles using “Forest Bathing”, “Secret Garden”, and “Soothe”! We’re very excited to use these ASAP once they set. Wanted to give a big thank you to the founder for walking us through all the details and specifics and being so warm and helpful! Will definitely be back for more!

Alexandra May 2024


A lovely class in a lovely workshop. We all had such fun and it was a great experience.

Hannah Brown May 2024


Was hoping for a few more oils eg spearmint, rose, tonka bean, jasmine or cherry but it was fun xx a little over priced x

Deepika Prasad Apr 2024


Myself and my friend did this as we were very keen to create our own aromatherapy candles. It was all flawless, Emily - the teacher was very knowledgeable and patiently answered all our questions. We love our 'Manifest' candles, cant wait to burn it now. Highly recommend, Thank you!

Jamie McDonald Apr 2024


We loved our workshop, Emily was so informative, clear with her instructions and every little detail felt like it has been considered, really chuffed with the candle I’ve taken home and would book on to another workshop for her other offerings.

Thank you so much for such a lovely morning.

Taslima Begum Apr 2024


Very enjoyable and intimate, a lot of scents to choose from. The host was extremely friendly

Nicole Akuezumba Apr 2024


Great birthday activity! The instructor was really helpful and patient - she took the time to help everyone with their scent stories and didnt rush us when the class had ended

Emily knows her stuff when it comes to scents ⭐️

Lucrezia Mazza Apr 2024


We had great time, the teacher was lovely, professional and happy to share her knowledge with us. Her calm and positive vibes created the perfect environment for this magical experience

Caitlin Hinton Apr 2024


In this class I learned a lot about how to build a scent story and also about each essential oil and how it's made. I really enjoyed the calming atmosphere and the ability to experiment with different scents!

Natalie Owusu-Ansah Apr 2024


I went on my own and I enjoyed this workshop. I chose to go as I love perfumes and wanted to learn about more about it and create my own scent. The teacher gave off a calming and sweet aura and was knowledgeable.

The venue was nice, not hard to find.
The price of the class is worth it.

I enjoyed mixing together different scents and piping the mixture into the roll on bottle.

Looking forward to taking more workshops in the future.

I always love organic with essential oil soap so I decided to attend the workshop. It runs by Emily of Yougi who is a lovely lady. She taught us through for everything we need to know on how to make the soap, it was a great fun for doing it. The presentation was beautiful and the size of the class was perfect. In the end we were also allowed to take 4 soap we made during the class home. It truly worths every single penny I paid for attending the workshop, highly recommended.

Lots of essential oils to choose from to make perfumes and curate a scent story. Yes, it was good value for the money. I enjoyed making the two perfumes

Ala Kraman Mar 2024


Got this as a birthday goft for my partner and her Tewin sister. The venue was nice. We felt like we needed more explaining to help us understand the mixing part. Our only concern was setting beside a couple who took all the oil bottles and did not share it.

Great Candle Making class in the heart or Shoreditch London. Everything was presented so beautifully, fresh peppermint tea and water provided. Very easy steps to follow to create a lovely smelling candle. The founder spoke to us about the scents, how to experiment and bring them together and the benefits of aromatherapy. Would 100% recommend.

Geraldina Kuci Feb 2024


We booked this as a team event (16 people), it was a huge hit. The team all really enjoyed the workshop as it allowed them to get creative and learn something completely new. The venue was not huge, but very aesthetic and cosy. When we arrived we were greeted with tea, unfortunately some of the team ran quite late, but Emily was very patient! All the materials needed were provided, there was a large selection of essential oils and nice packaging/bags to take our perfumes home in.

Emily (the founder) was great, very kind, informative and patient. I would definitely recommend this workshop.

Took a dear friend to help her unwind after work burnout and the setting was very intimate and full of warmth.
The teacher explained everything in detail and answered all our silly questions graciously.

All in all, It was a great experience, we were happy with the materials.
We learned to make aroma candles with essential oils which was very interesting; as a person quite knowledgeable on essential oils. I would highly recommend the class to anyone and the most enjoyable thing about it was the cozy setting and setup.

Luana Pontes Jan 2024


Emily is a great teacher! Very approachable, sweet, helpful, PATIENT! I had run behind in terms of creating my scent so I had to rush a little but nonetheless, Emily kept her cool about it.

The venue has a nice, calming aura to it despite the area. There was a large variety of choice when it came to essential oils which is also a plus; we were even offered tea upon arrival! The experience was definitely good value for money, I would do it again; I learnt a lot, got to familiarise myself with how a certain oil would affect my scent.

I wouldn’t be able to pinpoint on what I liked the most, from the tea to the teacher’s patience to the actual experience of making my own scent to the confidence I left the workshop with, I loved it all. The workshop in total was 1.5 hours, I think maybe for beginners, the only thing I think could be tweaked (personally) is maybe a little longer than 45 mins to create each scent (workshop was to make 2 scents) Because essentially the first 45mins is shared with learning time and getting to know the scents but apart from that, loved the class.

Teacher's response

Thank you so much much your kind words and positive feedback Luana !
We're also glad that you found our venue to have a calming aura.

We appreciate your feedback about the duration of the workshop, and we will take it into consideration for future classes. We understand that having more time to create each scent could enhance the overall experience, especially for beginners. Thank you for sharing this suggestion.

Thank you again for your kind words and for choosing our workshop. We truly appreciate your support, and we would be thrilled to have you join us again in the future. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again soon!

Jade Dec 2023


Jade our teacher was great. It was a very informative class, learning about the properties of each essential oil and how to blend oils to achieve your desired scents. There is a wide variety of scents to choose from. The whole workshop is well thought out from the layout to small intimate class size so you get to interact with the other attendees and you create. Plus you get to walk away with two scents you create which are perfect handbag size and the packaging is high quality. Would definitely recommend. This class is perfect for anyone who wants to attend alone or with a partner or friend. And the perfumes you create are a great gift for yourself or a loved one!

Teacher's response

Thank you, Jade, for your fantastic review! We're thrilled to hear that you had a great experience in our workshop and found it informative. Come back and visit us again soon. x

This class was taken by me and my 10 girlfriends to celebratey birthday. Emily is a very accommodating host, there was no issue with adding additional person, though the table set up was missing that +1. Emily's candle shop smells fantastic, with all natural oils. My friends were excited to make their own candles, following clear instructions. The oils were already blended - blends available in Emily's shop, but we were still able to mix those ourselves. It was fun, but short.

Christmas Candle Making Workshop review by Natalia Orzechowska - London

Teacher's response

Thank you, Natalia, for your review! We're thrilled to hear that you and your girlfriends had a great time celebrating your birthday in our workshop.

We're also happy to hear that you enjoyed the fantastic scent of our candle shop, thanks to our all-natural oils. It's great to know that your friends were excited to make their own candles and that the instructions were clear for everyone.

Thank you once again for choosing our workshop to celebrate your birthday, and we hope to see you all again in the future.

Joana Dec 2023


Yougi workshop was a very relaxing and calming experience perfect for a cold winter day. We enjoyed listening to essential oil's benefits and properties and all we could think of regarding candle-making. The workshop is very easy and accessible to anyone who enjoys smelling different essences and practises how to make a candle.

The result was a beautiful candle to keep or give as a gift if we lack ideas for Christmas :)
You will also get to buy a candle kit if you enjoy the experience and want to take it home :)

Anonymised ClassBento student Dec 2023


I went expecting to learn more about aromatherapy and the essential oils benefits, but unfortunately we just mixed our oils and didn't have much explanation about them. As described on the page, we should have been guided by our teacher, but if we wanted to know anything about the oils we needed to ask. As nobody had questions the class finished earlier then expected.

Anonymised ClassBento student Dec 2023


This class had real potential to be amazing. And in some ways it achieved that, but there were definitely things that could be improved. The direction was minimal. Nothing beyond top, middle, and, base notes. Quite a few of the essential oils that were listed weren't available or were in a limited supply and shared between the group of nearly 15 people. It felt very cramped and unfortunately I don't think the time frame was long enough to create two oils.
That being said it was a great opportunity to explore the scents that were available, the class was in a good location, and overall I enjoyed myself.

Ian Perrin Dec 2023

Hannah Collins Nov 2023


Overall, I really enjoyed this class as it was interesting to learn about the candle-making process and essential oils. Emily was really friendly and directed us well. The only reason I haven’t given 5 stars is because there had been a different class earlier that day but the space had not been tidied/cleaned before our began. That meant there were some used drinking cups still on the tables and one of the essential oils had run out. Otherwise - would definitely recommend as a lovely thing to do solo or as a group!

Teacher's response

Thank you, Hannah, for your positive review! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed our candle-making class and found it interesting to learn about the process and essential oils. We are thrilled to hear that you found her friendly and helpful in guiding you through the workshop.

We sincerely apologise for the oversight regarding the tidiness of the space. We had a member of staff ill on that day and we won't quite ready for people to arrive 15 minutes early.

We appreciate your recommendation of our class as a lovely activity to do solo or as a group. It was a pleasure having you in the workshop, and we hope to see you again soon for another candle-making experience! Thank you once again for your feedback.

A wonderful class with a very engaging and informative tutor. With just 10 in the class it felt that there was enough time for anyone to ask questions if needed.

Susan Davies Jul 2023


Teacher nice , pleasant, knowledgable and welcoming. Venue fine, although a lot of stairs might put people off (unsure if access info. is in details). Benches a little narrow and challenging to get onto for some over 60's like myself, and uncomfortable to twist around to see the host. Materials and experience were fine if a little simplistic. In the 40 minutes wait for the candle to solidify there could have been another like-activity - possibly an alternative candle making demonstration. A nice gift experience in all, thank you.

Teacher's response

Hi Susan, Thank you for your review and feedback. We are moving studio next week into a ground floor studio so it will be easier to access, with no stairs. We also have another more advanced workshop called Bespoke candle making where you create and blend your own candle scent which might be of interest. I hope you love your candle. Thanks for joining.

It's fantastic to know that everyone left with a roller ball filled with a beautiful scent that you all created together. The natural oils drifting around the event space throughout the night was definitely a pleasant bonus. We appreciate your kind words! Thank you for inviting us. ️

The workshop was great, Emily was lovely. The candles we made look and smell great.
I only wish we could’ve used a wider range of essential oils (in the workshop you use the pre-made mixes). I think that would add to the experience.

Thanks for your review and feedback Giada. We are introducing a longer workshop very soon where you can create a bespoke candle scent. Happy you enjoyed it though, great having you in the workshop.

Wonderful afternoon, friendly staff & relaxing atmosphere, the room was beautifully set up & all materials I needed were set out like a dining table!

Can’t wait to light my candle ️

Tassia Kobylinska May 2023


Absolutely gorgeous workshop led by lovely and informed teacher. Learned a lot and created two perfumes - one where I went a bit overboard with the patchouli oil and smelled like a 1970s California head shop and gave myself a headache, the other where I learned from this mistake and created a lighter floral number. Science of top notes, mid notes and base notes is fascinating. Look forward to annoying friends and family with bespoke perfume creations for Christmas and Birthdays.
It was 1 and half hours of scented joy!

Samantha Hook Apr 2023


Teacher was very pleasant and informative. She did struggle to make herself heard and to bring the chatting under control when she wanted our attention. She needs a little bell or something as softly spoken.

Jennie Bucknell Dec 2022


The candle we made looked professional and was lovely, made with good quality materials. We learnt about different scents.

Emma Cole Nov 2022


Emily exubed a quite calm enfourced by the background scents of her beautiful candles.
The class was informative without feeling like she was giving us a hard sell - I'm quite surprised about how much I actually learnt.
We made Xmas candles & I would have liked to have had a list of the emtions/feelings each combination of essential oils evoked, but this is purely because I'd forgotten most of the finer details by the time I got back home.
In the meantime, my candle is lovely & I can't wait to light it.
Thanks Emily & Merry Christmas!

Emily ran a virtual workshop for our team event and I really enjoyed it. The kits were securely packaged and arrived intact, the candle and scents were lovely and Emily was very knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. The actual candle-making did not take that long but Emily informed us of lots of facts about candles and essential oils as well. It was really relaxing and the candle smells great.

Viktoriia Khokhlova Sep 2022


Thank you for a great workshop! It was very interesting to learn about different scents.

The tea her explained everything very clearly and the space made it feel like a chill place to communicate with everyone else who was there.
It was relaxing, therapeutic and executioner perfectly!

I enjoyed candle making very much and Emily is a nice teacher who maintains the relaxed and friendly atmosphere and also shares some useful information about candles and a bit of business strategy as well :)

Avneet Virdee May 2022


Emily was extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the experience. And would definitely recommend it.

Sally McCarthy May 2022


Good venue
We had to pay for 20 people even though from the we confirmed early on that there would be 18 people.
Teacher was knowledgeable but she needed a sound system to get everyone’s attention and needs to be more forceful in her delivery. It was interesting learning all about the background of perfumes for the candles.
I think the class was too big for her.
Overall everyone had a good time.

Cinzia Valiante Apr 2022


Nice venue, cosy and related with the experience.
Emily is inspiring, it’s a good way to start for candle making projects

Tatiana Bassil Apr 2022


The teacher was great at explaining and giving context. you come out of the session with a candle and you get to learn about what makes a good candle vs bad

Marta Penedo Apr 2022


Very pleasant and inspiring experience! Following the workshop, I cannot wait to begin experimenting at home

Maryam Mafi Apr 2022


The teacher was fabulous. She answered all my questions clearly and didn’t mind repeating herself; which was much appreciated. The materials provided were of high quality and very user friendly. The mixed oils were all beautiful and expertly mixed to provide the best scents. All in all thoroughly enjoyable and informative workshop.

The class was great and perfect for the hen do. Emily was an organised and calm teacher and I enjoyed learning more about the brand. The venue that she organised was decorated beautifully and great for our group.

Talha Mar 2022


The teacher was amazing, she was very knowledgeable and was very clear about the smells and their benefits. A couple of oil extracts were provided which we then mixed together and then poured into the candle. Overall a very nice and relaxing experience.

Really enjoyed the class. The teacher was very knowledgeable and every item we would need was laid out. My only small qualm was that we weren’t able to be as creative with the scents as possible (pre-made essential oils were used), but I totally understand why this was the case!

Booked candle making for a mothers day gift for my sister, Emily was the course leader who was bery patient, hospitable ans knowledgeable in all areas with regards to candles, scents and aromas.
Thoroughly enjoyed the session - would definitely revisit for another type of candle making session with Emily

Glenys Houten Feb 2022


I really enjoyed my soap making session and surprised myself at how professional my soaps turned out to be . I found it very informative too and will now hunt out jojoba oil as it was recommended for sensitive skin. Thank you so much. I think all my friends will be getting soaps for Christmas this year
Sorry the photo doesn’t show all the soaps I made as both my daughters pinched one each before I took the picture
