About

For the Love of Herbs and Herb

A fascination with herbs and a desire to create natural herbal soap was a dream. In 2004, my husband, Herb, and I were vendors at our local farmer’s market when a customer lost control of her car and crashed into me as we sat at our booth. Years of quiet time and rehabilitation became a life-changing experience. Soapmaking would now become a reality. In 2008, I opened my Herbfriend's shop!

After that experience I had time to rethink my life. One of my dreams was to make handmade soap and to learn more about the herbs that I loved, those growing in my garden and those growing around in our natural environments. I had put those things on the "back burner" as I went along keeping busy each day; hoping, one day, to find time to do it.

My husband, Herb, and two grown daughters are now wanting to use my products for their families. It is a nice complement and I love doing this. It is so much fun doing something that I enjoy and something that I had dreamed of doing. Now I make time for those special things!

All of my products are made using natural ingredients, many are wild-crafted or certified organic. No artificial colors or scents are used in my body products, only natural oils, butters, herbs and essential oils.

Shop policies

Last updated on October 20, 2013
We are a small family owned herb nursery in South Louisiana with a passion for growing our herbs and using them to make herbal infusions, tinctures, balms and salves. We also make natural handmade soaps using natural ingredients including herbs, herbal infusions and essential oils.

My soaps are handmade in small batches using the cold process method, making a soap which is rich, creamy and mild. The first ingredient in all soaps is olive oil. I believe this to be one of nature's best soaping oils. Each recipe is unique and carefully studied. At cutting each bar of soap weighs between 5.5 and 6.5 ounces. They are allowed to cure for four weeks before they are ready to ship. The cured bars weigh around 5 ounces.

My handmade soaps are crafted using natural ingredients, organic when possible, and usually include organically grown herbs, herbal infusions and essential oils. You can read more about us at my blog at www.gabriellesgarden.blogspot.com.

All of the seeds that are for sale in my shop have been grown by me using organic methods. I follow organic gardening principles and no till methods. The seeds are open pollinated and are collected from my gardens. I cleaned and packaged them in recyled paper envelopes.

Whenever possible, I use recycled packaging materials for any of my shipments to my customers.

Thank you for visiting my shoppe and please let me know if there is something special that I can make for you.

I would be glad to ship out of the United States. Please let me know if you would like that and I will find the exact shipping for you.
