Steelworker and nurse by day, Yellowhammer Candle Co. by night.

Yellowhammer Candle Co. started off as a dream without a name, and quickly became reality after finding inspiration in a favorite television show. We started making candles in August of 2019 and are members of the Tuscaloosa River Market and we are available for purchase in some local stores. As we grow, we strive to maintain the commitment and vision we started with: to maintain our relationships with our customers and suppliers, and keep the authenticity of a quality handmade product.

We pride ourselves on the appearance of and the ingredients used in our candles and melts. We use 100% Soy wax for all of our candles and melts. Doing this guarantees you the cleanest and most natural product on the market, and in turn we are also helping support the American farmer by using wax harvested from soy beans grown here in the U.S.

Why a soy wax instead of a paraffin wax? A candle is a candle, right?

Soy wax is much more beneficial, and eco-friendly than paraffin wax. Soy wax is non-toxic, and is actually used by some customers as a moisturizer after being melted in our candles. It is a renewable and biodegradable product. Also, by using soy wax we are not only helping and taking care of our precious Earth, but we are also helping to support the American farmer.

Veteran-owned Yellowhammer Candle Co. is truly a family business. From our youngest child to the adults, we all play a part in the creation of these elegant candles and wax melts. From our family to yours, we welcome you to the Yellowhammer family, and we hope you enjoy our products. God bless.
