Our Story

Welcome to Herban Lifestyle!

With the goal of making the world a happier, healthier, better-smelling place, we cook up soaps and more from the yummiest, most natural, food-quality ingredients available, then wrap them in fun, earth-friendly packaging. People often say they want to eat our products, to which we answer, “Technically, you could, but we don’t recommend it.” We offer a selection of delicious handmade soaps (some made with local liquor), nostalgic men’s grooming products, sumptuous balms, a line of Mason Jar candles that help you “preserve” electricity, and DIY kits that teach you how to make your own bath and body products!

Herban Lifestyle is certified sustainable by Green America and Cruelty-Free by Leaping Bunny. We donate a portion of our revenues to non-profit organizations that support the people and the planet, and in-kind goods to local charities.

Our Mission: To make the world a happier, healthier, better-smelling place!

About Herban Lifestyle: At Herban Lifestyle, we are passionate about handcrafting natural and organic bath and body products. In 1999, founder Mary Kearns learned how to create herbal bath and body products and she shared them with friends, family and customers at her local farmers market. Today, Mary brings the same passion for sustainability, healing herbs, and aromatherapy to Herban Lifestyle, which was founded in 2008. Herban Lifestyle products contain pure oils, essential oils, and herbs –certified organic, pesticide-free, chemical-free, ethically wild crafted and/or Fair Trade. Because the substances that you apply to your skin get absorbed by your body, and because we care about your health and well being, we promise that Herban Lifestyle products will never contain artificial preservatives, synthetics, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, petroleum-based ingredients, GMO's or any other stuff that's bad for you. Customers love our products because they smell delicious, are good for the environment, and are gentle, yet effective.  

About Mary Kearns: Mary grew up in an environmentally conscious household where natural food and recycling were the norm. Her mother was into organic cooking long before it was cool. Mary has always delighted in the process of creating new products, and takes great pleasure in learning about the healing properties of herbs. In addition to being the founder and Chief Herban Developer at Herban Lifestyle, Mary has servied a wellness consultant working on the scientific review of cancer prevention programs. She is learning to balance her urban lifestyle with healthful habits‚ mind, body, and spirit‚ and shares this knowledge with others through her workshops and writing.
