Dark Heart Candles

Dark Heart Candles was set up by Kerry Gawler in March 2016. Kerry offers a variety of bespoke and homemade products including Mason Jar Candles, Cup and Saucer Candles, Personalised Mug Candles and Paw Melts. One of the things that makes them different to other candle companies is they are food scented. If you would like to order them for a special occasion, they come in beautiful gift baskets.

I asked Kerry a few questions about the candles she makes:

How did you come up with the name Dark Heart Candles

I was looking for something that reflects me. I'm a good kind hearted person but I have a dark side lol so Dark Heart Candles seemed fitting.

How many different types of candles and melts do you offer

At the moment we offer 14oz Re-Usable Mason Jar, 4oz Mason Jars, 8oz Jar Candles, Inspirational Mug Candles, Cupcakes, Flowers, Donut Rings and Paw Melts.

More are being added as we go along. There are many different colours and 30 scents to choose from. We like to encourage people to create their own candles and melts.

What type of wax do you use for the candles

We only use Soya Wax which means no black smoke and no toxins. You can tell as the candle containers stay clear round the top once the candle has been used. Most leave a burnt look. Soya Wax is organic and safe to use if you have kids at home. Plus it is good for the environment, Dark Heart Candles only uses the best quality fragrances. Unlike other candle companies we specialise in food scents.

Kerry asked me to be one of the testers, one of my favourite Paw Melts is the Banana Melt. I have really enjoyed photographing some of these lovely jars, candles and Paw Melts. My favourite lenses for product photography are my Nikon 24-70mm F2.8 and Nikon 50mm F1.8 lenses as they make it more about the subject.
