My Natural Beauty Holiday Gift Guide for 2012

 It is that time of year again.  I have been seeing tons of new items and sales in emails, on facebook and twitter and everywhere else too so I thought it was time to put together my Holiday Gift Guide for 2012.  Here you will find my top choices in natural or low-chemical beauty products that you can gift yourself, a friend or a loved one this season.

Rad Soap Co's Wonderland Chaga Duo -  I love to support local businesses, especially when their products are awesome. I discovered Rad Soap last year at a local arts & crafts fest and went back this year to buy a bunch more.  While standing waiting to cash out, I smelled something so wonderful, I had to know what it was and started sniffing things...aha! I was smelling Wonderland Chaga.  Chaga has some wonderful natural benefits and this smells divine!  $35 for the set.

Create Your Own Soap Gift Box - Another great local company is McGillycuddy's Naturals.  Their products are great and they are "good people" so I love to give them a shout out.  I learned to make soap with them last year.  This year, I am going to recommend you gift someone a custom soap box.  Pick 5 of the scents and types you want all for $20.95.

Lipstick Purse (or any other bag) from Love Shine! - This is an amazing shop I finally got to visit in East Village, NYC and I had to get a yoga mat bag and a tote. I loved everything there.  I use the tote daily for my work stuff, books, iPad, etc.  The yoga mat bag has plenty of room for my yoga mat and then some.  It is all hand-sewn & the fabric is high quality and the guy who makes this stuff is a really nice guy.  Go check them out! Prices range.

Badger Sleep Balm Ornament -  Badger has ornaments with their balms this year.  How cute!!! Badger is a very trusted company that does their best for their customers and their employees.  I think they should be a part of everyone's holiday.  They also have some great gift sets on their site.  $5.99

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm Duo - I am addicted to these lip balms.  These live in my purse at all times.  Who wants to use a basic plain lip balm when you can use one that gives a hint of color and oomph to your skin tone.  Retails for $10
