About Us | Morning Song Gardens
Our families love of nature and desire for healthy living has always been something we wanted to share with others. In the beginning we grew hundreds of varieties of cut flowers, herbs, berries and vegetables on two acres of our land in rural Auburn Township, Northeast Ohio. Eventually we began using bee hives to help pollinate these flowers and herbs. It was at this junction when our beeswax revelation was realized.
Morning Song Gardens was then established in 1996 as a family run and operated business, using only the finest locally harvested beeswax to make candles. We hand dipped and hand poured each candle in true "Old World" tradition. The beeswax candles were a success at farmer’s markets and craft shows. The goal was to supply customers with a superior product and service, and to provide them with the healthiest, longest lasting candles one can burn in their home. Nothing would compare to the warm glow of a beeswax candle. They were brighter, lasted 3 times as long as paraffin, didn’t produce that damaging black smoke, but did leave the slight smell of honey in the air! This was just the beginning.
As our knowledge of beeswax and the honeybees grew we were awestruck with the possibilities that lay before us in what God had naturally created and provided for us. Louise, the mother of the family business who was already familiar with herbal remedies, started doing some extensive research on natural beeswax soaps and creams. Her experimentation process began on her family and friends in great need. She and her original test subjects found the results to be overwhelmingly positive! These first creams, lotions and soaps were created merely to treat her own children’s skin problems, but eventually they evolved into a solid, retail worthy product that people were lining up to try. She and her family now had a new direction.
As Louise and her families’ understanding of soap making grew, so did the product line. With the use of fine essential oils, herbs and plants grown on the property, and of course the best Ohio beeswax and honey, the family soon found that they really did have something special to offer those in pursuit of healthy skin the natural way. Again, the customer response to these beeswax, honey and olive oil based products was astounding. Soon letters, e-mails and phone calls started coming in, and with those came customer orders through our first official website. By this time Louise’s husband Fred, had taken over financial operation, web responsibilities, and plenty of sweat labor in the field. The company officially hired several of their adult children to help run farmer’s markets, craft shows, and many of the day to day operations. The whole family was working together and forging a bond they had not had in many years. Close friends of the family began to help out and learn the trade as well.
These days Morning Song Gardens grows a little each day. We have a few full time employees, and many key part-time people that help make the business a success. Each one of our workers embodies the worker bee, taking on many responsibilities and performing multiple tasks to provide the best bee balm soaps, creams, lotions, and beeswax candles we possibly can. We can be found in multiple health foods stores and markets along the East Coast and Midwest including Whole Foods Market. We have recently teamed up with a local favorite Heinen’s, a grocery store chain across Ohio and Illinois. We enjoy doing demos and handling out samples in as many of these stores as we can. We love attending our local Shaker Square Farmers Market every Saturday morning between 08:00 am to 12:00 pm. You can find us every autumn during the first three weekends of September at the Yankee Peddler Festival in Canal Fulton, Ohio. We attend many different holiday craft shows as a yearly routine along the East Coast as well. Just give us a call or write us for those details.
The success of our small business we attribute to God, through whom all things are possible. We want to thank you, our customers, who we consider a part of our friends and family group. You guys inspire us to make awesome products that work when nothing else does. You drive the innovation that makes our new product lines, promotions, and determine the places we travel. We do this to make an honest living, but also because we love sharing the gift of skin nutrition and hearing your success stories. Our mission is first and foremost to inform people. There are too many products out there that strip the skin of it's natural beauty. We are here to provide naturally healthy, beautiful skin..
