Hive to Home

Hive to Home believes companies hold an important responsibility to make the world kinder and more sustainable. Driven by a desire to make a difference, sisters Holly and Stephanie created Hive to Home out of their very own kitchen in 2018. While both sisters came from different backgrounds in photography and child care, they made the courageous move to embark on their creative dreams, choosing to embrace the unknown and lean into new experiences! Today, Hive to Home fosters authenticity, inspiration, and a whole lot of candle creation in their small home studio in rural Middleville, Michigan.

A family-owned and operated business, Hive to Home designs and creates farm-to-table beeswax candles donned with hand-drawn political and socially-aware designs. They use locally-harvested beeswax, organic coconut oil, wooden wicks, and reusable glass vessels for the ultimate sustainable candle experience. More than just candles, Hive to Home goods are essentials that reflect eco-friendly and mission-driven values.

Handmade goods with humor

Hive to Home is a company working to change the world one eco-friendly, humor-fill candle at a time. From their carefully selected ingredients to their thoughtful eco-packaging, they always seek to leave the world a little better than they found it. All Hive to Home candles are made with locally-harvested beeswax from Michigan orchards. Compared to conventional candles, they're much more sustainable, safe, and long-lasting. For instance, beeswax candles, compared to soy or paraffin-based candles, have a higher melting point which means the candles will melt more slowly and burn for longer. Plus, burning beeswax helps clear toxins from the air by binding to impure particles and weighing them down -- pretty neat! Beyond their gorgeous candles, Hive to Home sources plastic-free packaging for less waste, always opting for compostable, recyclable, and reusable. Moreover, their all-natural candles are placed in a reusable glass vessel which pairs beautifully with their innovative wax refills or can be repurposed as elegant home decor (their recycled paper labels are easy to peel off for repurposing). Prior to shipping, the candle is lovingly wrapped in recycled newspaper or compostable packing peanuts for added protection and sustainability. Finally, Hive to Home believes the words we use have a tremendous impact. As such, many of their candles feature hand-drawn designs that bring attention to significant social issues, from gender equity and racial justice to political figures that are breaking the glass ceiling. Some candles even donate to local nonprofits and world-changing organizations like Colors of Change where Hive to Home donated 50% of the proceeds from their Beneath the Surface Collection in 2021. Since their inception, they've collaborated with various organizations to amplify their company's impact, even going so far as to donate 100% of their proceeds to worthy causes.
