PETA and The Hive

PETA has always been one of those organizations that I admired and stood behind regarding their stance on no animal testing (among some of their other stances). I remember being in high school and having the pocket sized, cruelty-free pocket guide in my wallet. Taking it out and looking up everything I purchased. Never did I expect that I would someday own a company that would grace the pages of that little pint sized travel guide, as well as listed on their website!

Yes! You heard me right!! I have gone through the certification to get all my products, and company certified and licensed by PETA. I am now a proud member in the "Beauty Without Bunnies" program!!!!

Over the next few weeks you will start seeing a change to some of our packaging and also in our Etsy shop to share and spread the word that our products are cruelty free, and many also vegan. 

Some packaging won't change immediately because of large investments that have already been in the current labels. But you can be assured that once they have run out, new labels proudly displaying our new certification will be ordered.


This is a really big deal for us over here at The Hive and I just wanted to share with all of you this awesome news.

Grab Bag Love

My lip balms can now be found in Grab Bag Love!

I was extremely delighted when Jamie (owner of the company) wanted my lip balms to be part of her Original grab bags.

Are you familiar with subscription boxes? 

I actually really didn't know too much about them until one of my friends was raving about a popular online subscription box. I went on a search researching different boxes available and reached out to many. One of the boxes I am currently featured in is Grab Bag Love (and personally one of my favorites) I love that the items are all from smaller start up companies and handcrafted Etsy shops.

Jamie is a real doll to work with as well. She currently offers three different types of bags: Original, Domesticated and Health Nut. 

Original: "Inside the Original Grab Bag (Love) you'll find an assortment of amazing goods, from cosmetics, skincare products, fashion accessories, chic stationary products, gourmet chocolates and more!" - ***This is where you can find The Hive Botanicals lip balms

Domesticated: "Just because some people think cooking and cleaning is work doesn't mean you can't find it fun. Enjoy an assortment of products and projects to keep your home and garden organized, clean and lets face it, awesome!"

Health Nut: Experience the latest health food products, from nutrition bars and organic treats to natural supplements. This bag is a great choice for any Whole Foods lover!
New Bonus: In addition to yummy products we now also include a print out of our favorite healthy recipe we've discovered. "

Here is a little peak inside one of the original bags recently shipped.

So back to my friend that originally spoke to me about this whole new world of grab bags. Because I was telling her about Grab Bag Love, she immediately went out and ordered one. It arrived earlier this week and included one of my cherry lip balms along with many other amazing products. She was so excited and texting me pictures of all the goodies.

So if you are in the market for a grab bag of awesome goodies head on over, you might just get one of my lip balms!

Spotlight: New Patchouli and Lavender Oatmeal

You asked for it..I listened. The Patchouli soap is finally up in the shop and ready to be shipped to all you Patchouli lovers out there! It was a huge hit at the market this past weekend and think it is definitely here to stay. 

It's not overpowering, it's a lighter, milder version of walking into a hippie shop! haha (just kidding!) But people are loving it, get it while I still have stock!

Lavender..vanilla (peru balsalm)..and oatmeal..yes please! I am smitten with this soap. It is so calming and reminds me of a spa. It was another big hit this past weekend at the Farmer's market and definitely another keeper and instant favorite of mine.

I don't think these will last on the shelves long, get em while you can!

Spotlight: NEW - Garden Grit

I've finally added the garden grit over in the shop. It's amazing as we have been using it after playing in the dirt in our gardens. 

The scent is a mild combination of rosemary, bergamot, and sweet orange. It has the scrubbing power of pumice stones and organic poppy seeds. You couldn't ask for a better garden soap, gets your hands super clean without drying them out like the harsh over-the-counter soaps.

Know a gardener? Pick up a bar, they will love you for it!

making way for the new..

We have decided to discontinue two of our current flavors - Lemon Poppyseed and Creamsicle

Smells just a Creamsicle Popsicle, you'll think there is going to be a vanilla ice cream center! 

Lemon and benzoin essential oils are combined with the exfoliating power of organic poppy seeds. Very light lemon and vanilla scent.

Prices have been dropped, get these bars now for $5 until they are sold out!
