Earth Day has come and gone . . . but has it really? Not for me, because Earth Day is everyday. We create products here at EdenSong Essentials always keeping in mind what is best for the planet and for its inhabitants, which is why we have such a strong sense of keeping our products pure. We also are conscious about our packaging and shipping materials.
This year we participated in Celebrity Earth Day Gifting through The Artisan Group - yes, even celebrities can be earth conscious and we appreciate the influence they may have.

On April 22nd, Earth Day, I did my usual digging in the dirt . . . planting herbs to use for cooking and for skin care products.
What does Earth Day mean to you and what did you do to commemorate the day?
We're very proud to announce that EdenSong Essentials is featured in official gifting for some of the biggest names in Country Music, as well as executives for The 46th Annual CMA Awards!
Watch LIVE on Nov. 1 at 8p/7p Central on ABC.
The first “CMA Awards Banquet and Show” was held in 1967. The following year, the CMA Awards was broadcast on NBC Television for the first time – making it the longest running, annual music awards program on network television. The Awards aired on NBC through 1971, on the CBS Television Network from 1972 through 2005, and has aired on ABC since 2006. ABC will be the network home of the CMA Awards through 2021.

Valerie Guerrero and Nikki Cutro
The founder, Valerie Guerrero, and her partner, Nikki Cutro, are always available to the members, providing sage advice, as well as their support. As small business owners themselves, they clearly understand the struggles of building a brand and the importance of getting the right media exposure.
I have never been involved with such a wonderful group and have found the members to be ever so encouraging to champion one another on to greater challenges, believing we all can achieve our dreams! I have also found many truly great friends that I expect will be in my life for a very long time. To me, that speaks volumes for the type of people Valerie and Nikki choose as members.

Welcome! I'm Stephanie (Jo to close friends), founder of EdenSong. Aside from my university studies, I have a natural passion for all things organic. I enjoy living and learning about natural ways, all things health related, cooking, gardening with herbs and flowers, photography, DIYing, yoga, bicycling, ballet, traveling and being with family and friends. A quirk of mine is my near obsession of Asian culture, particularly Korean history and its language. Would you like to know more? Find out about us.
