The first Herbaria soaps made a splash in the Best of Missouri Market at Missouri Botanical Garden. Soon after, LaRee returned to her law career and her husband, Ken Gilberg took over. His background in botany, cooking, photography, graphic arts and marketing continue to advance the business. Ken moved production from the kitchen to the basement of their home.

In 2009, Herbaria moved to our current location, a large, bright store and workshop on the much-visited old Italian section of St. Louis, the Hill. We began offering tours of the soap making factory.
