Honeybee Gardens was created in 1995 by author and herbalist Melissa J. Hertzler. Years of herbal study prompted Ms. Hertzler to create natural personal care products for her and her family. What began as kitchen cosmetics soon turned into a profitable enterprise. Honeybee Gardens products are created entirely of natural materials that you can actually pronounce! They reuse and recycle as much as possible and, perhaps most importantly, the do not test any of their products on animals.
