Yes4us Unique 4-step approach
- Awareness: The key to make a difference is to first know the ill-effects of current candles being used. Regular oil- or paraffin-based candles do not burn clean and release toxic fumes into the environment. Plus, they use artificial fragrances for scent. This workshop is an opportunity to learn healthier and natural options available and what better than a DIY workshop.
- Solution: We teach you how to make natural candles from soy wax.
What are Soy candles?
Soy candles are made from a base of soy wax. This wax is derived from soybeans, therefore, made from vegetables (opposed to regular oil- or paraffin-based candles). Not only are soy candles made from a renewable resource, they also burn clean and last longer. As such, you get more bang for your buck from a longer-lasting candle.
Why soy candles?
Soy wax is a 100% natural wax derived from the vegetable soybeans. Another reason to choose soy wax is the fact that it is an excellent fragrance carrier that does not require chemical amplifiers. The result is a well-balanced true to scent candle.
- Impact: Free yourself from toxic fumes by switching to handmade and natural candles. Gift them to loved ones and help keep the environment clean too. Icing on the cake would be if you walk a step further and convert this skill into a small home-made business. Candle industry is expected to reach USD 5 billion by 2026 (source -MarketWatch) and what could be a better time than to start now. Learning candle making is a win-win skill and we will help you achieve it.
- Reward:What could be better than enjoying the aroma of natural soy wax and that too made by yourself. This will not only give you a sense of satisfaction of great DIY art, but also fill your mind and soul with natural and soothing fragrances. Further, you take back all three candles made at the workshop, which each retail for AED 50-60 and more than compensate for your workshop fees. The fragrances made are lavender, rosemary and gardenia.

Had a lovely time in the candle making class and the expert is great at teaching the concept.
The workshop was the perfect experience, with Neha a perfect tutor - carefully explaining each part of the process. And a perfect end to the workshop with self made candles to take away. A fabulous experience and would highly recommend for a girls day out or a treat for yourself!
