Our history

Yoku was founded in April 2019 by Céline. Concerned about having quality products that respect the environment and health, she decided to sort through her cosmetics, her cleaning products and... her candles!

The candles sold cheaply in stores are in fact made of paraffin and toxic perfumes... There is no question of keeping this at home, while she is expecting her 3rd child!

The idea of ​​making candles that were both pretty and non-toxic then took hold and Céline launched Yoku, somewhat on a whim.

But where does the word Yoku come from?

It comes from "Shinrin Yoku". A Japanese term meaning “Forest Bathing”. Nature lover, this name was perfect for this brand of plant-based candles.
