The perfect gifts for Mother’s Day could be found as close as Froberg’s Farm on Highway 6.
The gifts are handmade soaps made by licensed Esthetician Ashley Froberg.
Froberg wanted to create a line of products that were made cruelty free and would provide a way to relax and enjoy. She started with bar soaps and now offers Lip Butters, Bath Bombs, Sugar Scrubs, and Bath Melts.
She is working on more products like liquid Soap, lotions, more scrubs, solid bubble bath, facial masks, serums, and natural perfumes. She plans to expand her line to offer more natural products for bath and body.
“I hope to offer products that you can enjoy and treat yourself because we all deserve to take some time out of our busy lives and relax and enjoy. Self care is really important and I want to offer ways to enhance that,” Froberg said.
Her soaps are popular items at the family business location. She has both feminine and masculine scents and has soaps with fragrance oils and essential oils.
Froberg reports that the most popular fragrance oils scents are Satsuma, Oatmeal Milk, Honey and Rose, and Rose Quartz, a rose with some citrus notes.
The popular essential oil scents are Lavender, Eucalyptus and Orange.
Soaps also come in unscented and uncolored.
The way all the soaps are made make them special.
“My soaps are all made in small batches and made by hand. I control all of the ingredients so this allows me to omit things like synthetic bubbling agents and use oils that are natural bubbling agents in my soaps instead,” Froberg said. “All but two of my products are also vegan; two soaps have local honey in them so they are not.”
Her main line has synthetic colors and fragrances but she has a line that has nothing but essential oils, natural colorants and no palm oil.
“I also only use biodegradable glitter when it is used so nothing will pollute the oceans. I am also looking into biodegradable plastic packaging,” she said.
Prices run from $2.50 for lip butters and from $6 to $10 for soaps and bath bombs and melts.
Froberg is also working on a building for a spa and bath and body business on the farm.
“Ethereal Aesthetics may be hard to pronounce for some but it does really describe my brand. Ethereal being light and delicate and perfect just like I want my products to be,” Froberg said.
Froberg’s Farm is open seven days a week excluding major holidays. Not only does it have the handmade soap items, it also offers a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, a bakery, a snack bar and a variety of seasonal activities for families, including a Corn Maze, Night-time Corn Maze, Indoor Pumpkin Patch and Fall Festival.
