BethKaya began as an indie brand fueled by artist Bethany Erxleben’s thoughtful creations. It seems to be growing into a bit more and welcoming new members to the fold. I have brought on an incredible crafter recently, you’ll see me refer to her on social media and listings as Melly Biscuits. She is great at helping me complete mass projects for you all so I can keep up the demand and continue to deliver the same attention to detail and quality you trust in the brand.
I am a multi media artist, family woman and homesteader galore who infuses crystals into lifestyle products and promotes spirited living and wellness through an array of media. My brand and social media efforts have pioneered this modality in the cosmetic world. I also spent over a decade in corporate marketing for high end technology and entertainment companies. I specialized in VIP services, events and strategic sales. I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology with a focus on metal smithing and gemology. Additionally, I have formally studied Sacred Geometry and Geomancy with the Evolver Institute and more recently- Aromatherapy at the International Aromatherapy Institute.
I create seasonal product lines as displayed in the shop with a focus on functional, crystal infused holistic applications. These include – Luxury Spa Body Products, Fragrances, Intention Sets, Aromatherapy Blends and more. I work with a lot of amazing indie artists, and collaborate with them often. You can find all of my latest creations in my etsy shop or on instagram.
I have a special knack for capturing beautiful sceneries inside of fragrances and essential oil blends. BethKaya has designed over 200 unique scents and is represented in 27 countries globally with our signature (often copied) creations.

Fun Facts about Beth:
I grew up in MD and moved to NYC when I was 19 to go to school and get a grown up job.
My husband and I love live music and have traveled everywhere to see concerts! My favorites have been : Paul McCartney, David Gilmour & Phish (of course!)
I have a little boy named Silas – he loves to make soap too and has his own label we work on together sometimes called “Suds By Silas”. His stuff is way cooler than mine.
I love to play nintendo 64 in my never free time.
Crafting is life!
We have a massive garden that keeps getting bigger every year!
We live on the Jersey Shore and love it here. Don’t believe the gossip about New Jersey, the food is great, the traffic moves and you don’t have to pump your own gas.
I have synthestesia, it’s a cross wiring in my sensory experience that perhaps contributes to my unique ability to design fragrance hues.
I am obsessed with traveling for free using rewards points!
I love to play the harmonica, paint henna and DJ for fun!
My husband says: Bethany can craft anything . Beth’s meatballs are delicious. Beth can pinch really hard with her toes and likes globs of cheese. (thanks hunny)
