After a life-long love of candles and discovering a passion for yoga at the beginning of last year, Katie (the founder of Yogi Candle Studio) started experimenting with creating beautiful scented candles to use for her yoga practice. What started as a hobby soon developed into a small business, and Yogi Candle Studio was born. Her creations are now sold online and at local events.
We hand pour our plant-based and eco-friendly candles at our studio in Staffordshire using a small batch production method. All of our candles are made with 100% vegan, cruelty and palm free ingredients inspired by nature. We use ethically sourced natural waxes and oils to create clean-burn candles that release beautiful, natural aromas.
Here at Yogi Candle Studio, we believe in creating beautiful candles and melts which do not cause any harm to the environment. Our brand is centred around being green and being mindful about the effect that we have on the environment. We source all of our supplies as responsibly as possible to ensure that they don’t have too far to travel, and we are constantly researching new ways to improve our carbon footprint with the aspiration of becoming completely carbon neutral.
All of our materials are ethically sourced, ensuring that we create products which are as natural as possible and do not contain any chemicals or nasties. We use soy wax as a base for our products which is a sustainable resource. All products are palm oil free. All fragrance oils are chemical and cruelty free.
We have also sourced fully recyclable packaging which contains NO plastic, so please help us in reusing or recycling your packaging after use.
We also run a local recycling scheme, where you can trade in your old candle containers and get a 10% discount on your next purchase. Unfortunately we are able to offer a freepost service to run this nationally at the moment, but we will be looking into this for the future.
We have also released a charity candle and wax melt which supports a large conservation charity who help to protect natural environments, stop extinction of species and continue fight against climate change. To find out more please visit the online shop.
