Hidden Gems: Meet Brianna Yahaya of Eden Love

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brianna Yahaya.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
Growing up, my friends would always call me a hippie because I just loved all-natural and organic products and boho clothing. When I had my son he had sensitive skin and I wanted to go find the best products that had all-natural ingredients that would be the best for his skin, so when I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I created body butter for myself and used on him too.

I never thought about making it into a business even though I’ve always wanted to start a business. When the pandemic hit it just clicked that I wanted to provide self-care through all-natural products, so I started Eden Love Co. I wanted people to know that the products were made with love and that it is okay to just take a moment for yourself. Eden Love Co. has turned into more than I could imagine.

I’ve only been operational for ten months and I will be opening our first brick and mortar on November 6th in Zona Rosa under the Gift It brand. I’ve been able to expand so much that we are having the Eden Love Co. products within our Gift It seasonal boutique.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It hasn’t been a smooth ride it’s definitely been a little bit bumpy. I made the full jump to full-time entrepreneurship from working in Higher Education for the last decade. Full-time as a company of one is much different and it’s hard but so worth it.

I’ve grown so much over this past year and if this is what my first year looks like I’m extremely excited for the future.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Eden Love?
I’m the owner and founder of Eden Love Co and Gift It. We provide self-care curated products and Gift Boxes. I wanted to create products that meet the need and are truly made with love. Our specialty gift boxes are our best sellers because it allows people to be able to send love.

Whether it’s your best friend’s birthday or your sister’s baby shower or even your co-worker’s housewarming we have a special self-care gift ready for you. We believe every man or woman deserves and needs self-care and our company is always trying to find ways to provide it.

Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
I like the spirit of Kansas City and the support I received through my entrepreneurial journey. It’s been a great place to grow a business. Oh, and of course the BBQ.

I wish that KC was more open to new things like some other cities and truly embrace these unique ideas because it would make the city have more opportunities.
