Meet the Maker

Handmade + Woman Owned

Hi! I'm Janelle, the woman behind From the Heart. I have been teaching yoga for seven years and studying herbalism for three! FTH all started when I learned how to make a mala for japa meditation during my teacher training; I had never tapped into that creative side of myself before and I quickly became hooked. From there it evolved into making bracelets and necklaces, and once I was introduced to (and started studying) herbal medicine, I expanded FTH to include botanicals!

I am also, and probably most importantly, a mother, so everything you see here is made either during nap time or with my little cutie by my side. What I love most about this little business is how everything I make really does come from the heart. I hope you can see and feel that, too. 


Everything is created as sustainably as possible, including avoiding mass production by doing made-to-order malas and necklaces, using locally sourced, organic herbs and products, and recyclable and reusable bubble mailers! Even down to the aesthetic, I use a handmade stamp with a refillable pad and non-toxic, water based ink free of unnecessary junk. I do all of this because I believe it is my responsibility to follow mindful creative practices and respect the world around us. Help to continue these practices: Send back any From the Heart packaging (necklace holders, tags, cards, stamped boxes and bags) and receive 10% off your next purchase! Simply put whatever you don't want to keep in the same mailer I sent to you, and once I receive the package you will receive the discount code for you to use whenever.
