about us

hey there! so you want to know a little more about the salty hive, huh?
let's start with some fast facts!
  • northeast (akron!) ohio based company
  • woman-owned & operated
  • local ingredients & packaging
  • not your ordinary home & body shop

"scents that spark memories, laughs, & the urge to recite movie lines"

🤘 the salty hive makes custom blend fragrances to create familiar & sarcastic home & body products for those who are looking for more than just your average plain ol' wax melt, candle, or hand soap.

💙 i started my business in 2017, several months after i lost my father unexpectedly. 3 months prior to that, i left my job due to budget cuts. after losing my dad, i became even more lost & had no sense of direction or where my future was heading. after a month-long solo road trip through new england, i decided i didn't want to work in an office ever again & not have control of my own future.
so i got my creative mind going & turned one of my hobbies into a business.

🤘 4 years later @thesaltyhiveandbody has grown into a dream business where i never feel like it's really work!
