When we first discovered Etsy's beauty section, a magical world opened before us. It's there that you'll find handmade salves, creams, bath bombs, hair ties, body scrubs, and so much more. If you're a naturalist, this section is especially worthy of your time, as most products are made with all-natural ingredients that won't take a toll on your skin.
This holiday season, we implore you to give Etsy a try when shopping for gifts. Not only will each gift be specially made by hand, but chances are your friend or loved one won't already have the product in their collection.

Don't you want to just dive right into this whipped body butter? It looks good enough to eat, but truly this cream will transform your skin and make you smell heavenly too. Just imagine: cinnamon bark essential oil, sweet almond oil, and vanilla all wrapped up into one. Can you say yum?
The intoxicating scent of this soap cleanses not only your body, but also your sinuses. There's also a bit of pink sea salt sprinkled on top for an added exfoliating treat.You'll never want to leave your shower! The brand, Coco & Li, sells a variety of goodie-topped soaps that come beautifully packaged, making them the perfect gift.
Although a bit pricey, this kit allows your gift recipient to make their own custom scent, making it perhaps even more worthy than a more expensive brand. With so many different notes to choose from, they'll surely be able to find the perfect balance for an amazing smelling perfume.
Do a search for face masks on Etsy, and you'll find a ton of hits for French green clay. This particular mask will help soothe your skin while also drawing out impurities for a cleansing and detoxifying experience.
We can't get enough of Burt's Bee's Tinted Lip Balms, which is why we fell head over heels for these tinted balms from Etsy shop Fattys Soap Co. In one set of eight, you get the following balms: Apricot, Avocado, Sesame, Sweet Almond, Babassu, Jojoba, and Meadowfoam. Admittedly, we had to Google Meadowfoam and Babassu, but would totally buy all eight in an instant.
Essential oils have a way of making everything better. Case in point: this "Feel Better" set from Iris Apothecary. Give this to your workaholic friend who needs a calming dose every now and then, or gift it to yourself!
Give your friend or loved one the gift of a spa day at home with this facial steam, toner, and serum. A true herbal experience, this set will transport the user into some sort of Zen garden, leaving them with a soft and smooth complexion.
How genius is this: a soap with a loofah built right in? Why didn't we think of this? Scrub away dead skin while lathering up in an instant, while the smell of honey fills your shower.
The ultimate self-care gift set, this collection includes body butter, lip balm, sugar scrub, a body butter stick, and bath melts (think bath bombs, but a little fancier). Your friend will thank you!!
We've let you in on some of the amazing beauty benefits of coffee, which is why we completely condone this awesome coffee body scrub with a hint of brown sugar. Coffee break, anyone?
