The soaps have no added fragrances or dyes. The bars are made with locally sourced ingredients and essential oils for the most natural soaps on the market.

I purchase some tea soap and tried it out and it’s wonderful. I just love the smell and the added coconut oil is great for dry winters.

The shop resides in a home that happens to be one of oldest homes in Paducah known as The Smedley Yeiser House built in 1852.

Herbane is locally owned by Erica Harding and Matthew David Curtis and they are two of the nicest people.

Please stop in the next time you’re in the market for soaps, records, clothes or unique gift items. Doing so will help keep downtown vibrant.

Oh and Matthew, I will stop by in the next couple of days to get a photo of you and a better one of the building.  Thanks you so much!
