meet the maker
Yellow Heart Company is a small, home-based business operating through our online website and wholesale suppliers by me, Megan, in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL.
I started this business to create things that highlight the little things in life. On my own mental health healing journey, the suggestion from a dear friend to take a bath to relax and unwind seemed absolutely awful... and it was! But, it forced me to sit with myself, without distraction to battle my demons. That one bath turned into many and each one was usually enjoyed with a mug of ice cream and a candle. In my story, the bath was the tool to healing but it's certainly not the only way to find stillness in our chaotic lives. That candle flickering on the edge of the tub meant so much more to me then I had initially realized. It provided light & comfort in so much darkness. My hope is Yellow Heart creates the little things that give you the same light & comfort they gave me.
create the things you wish existed
Yellow Heart specializes in creating small joys that highlight the significant of the little things in life. Our main focus is our signature soy wax candles that are handcrafted in small batches. Our fragrances are free of phthalates and harmful toxins. Our soy wax is pure, naturally dervied and formulated without parabens, additives or preservatives. We pour our candles with a choice of eco cotton wicks or FSC certified mills crackling wood wicks. We offer a variety of sizes and vessels per collection of candles.
We also offer pure soy wax melts in our signature scents as well as molded, taper and pillar candles.
Occasionally, we dabble in bath products such as bath bombs, salt soaks and bubble bars. Unfortunately, in desperate need to add more hours to the day, bath products have not been highlighted how we would like but is one of our big goals for the future of Yellow Heart Co.
behind the lens
You may have noticed my product photos are not your typical blank background with just the item. Photography is something I absolutely adore and I go to great lengths to capture my products in scenes you may not expect a candle to be. For example, ignited on a bridge with an insane sunset in the background. My grandfather was an incredible photographer and artist who painted watercolor paintings of his own photography. Incredible in the sense of capturing photos of polar bears he'd go looking for just to bring home and paint. My photography is a way of honoring him in a sense. I believe he would be incredibly proud to see me chasing sunsets, laying the ground to get the right angle, setting up extravagant photo booths and spending hours editing. It's what makes this company this Yellow Heart and it's making something as simple as a product photo, magnificence. Because... it's always, always the little things.
