Who we are


She has a moderately healthy obsession with candles.

Emily Lynam started out as a home accessories and beauty buying manager for top retailers.

After traveling the world developing products, she knew the candles on offer could be so much better and decided it was time to launch her own new venture.

Emily formed the idea for Yougi when in India doing a yoga training; Inspired by ayurveda, yogic philosophy and plant medicine.

Yougi brings the beauty of fragrance and ritual to every moment at home.

The journey so far!


Emily kept finding herself settling for candles that were made out of synthetic fragrance, paraffin and were too expensive to light every day.

So she spent a year testing hundreds of fragrances, mixing waxes, experimenting with wicks to create the kind of candles we had been searching for.

She made a conscious decision from the start to invest in sustainable, cruelty-free and wildcrafted ingredients because, despite often costing a lot more, they have been proven to be far more potent and effective (not to mention more environmentally friendly) than their mass-produced or synthetic equivalents.
