Gift Idea 2: Artisan Beauty


Can a single bar of soap or bottle of lotion change your day?

In ancient times, bathing was a special time of cleansing and renewal that many of us have lost to a quick shower. Holly Bator-Dziewit of Northern Catskills Essentials believes that body care can be a healthful, aromatic and rejuvenating experience that pleases all of our senses, transforming us and our whole day in just a few moments. Transformation – what a beautiful gift to share this holiday.

Northern Catskills Essentials products are 90-100% natural with primarily food grade ingredients. They are hand crafted in Stamford, NY (in Delaware County) in small batches with food grade and organic oils, sourced locally when possible. All products are paraben, phthalate, and cruelty free.
