About Herbaria

Herbaria partners

Partners in life and business, Blake and Melissa. 


Goods for You 

We proudly offer you vegan, fragrance-free, and Earth-friendly products handcrafted in our St. Louis, Missouri shop. 


In 2001, inspired by a chemistry class and her own sensitive skin, LaRee DeFreece developed and perfected our basic soap recipe. She named our company Herbaria, as everything we make is plant-based. 

LaRee went on to practice law, and her husband, Ken Gilberg, guided the company for years until Melissa Gibbs and her husband, Blake Larson, became full partners with LaRee and Ken in 2018.  

Sold at Fairs

Since 2002

Today, we make shampoos, deodorants, moisturizers, insect repellents, candles, and other all-natural products. Our #1 product is one of LaRee's original varieties—Lavender Oatmeal
