Natural Skincare From The Big Island – Holistic Spotlight

A lot of the partnerships and collaborations I choose to do come from a purely synergistic place. For one reason or the next, people are brought into view for me and we connect. Two of those people just recently happened to be based on the Big Island in Hawaii. Ironically – the timing is incredible because it is the anniversary of when something deep in my core was activated on the Big Island. My husband and I hiked a now too dangerous part of Kalapana with an experienced tour crew. The hike was grueling but we witnessed splendor in geomantic forms. Hawaii has a lot of that – the magic of their special soil and offerings to be had from that earth is very inspiring and cosmic.

I recieved some oils from VETIVER FARMS HAWAII (VFH). What Can I say about the freshness and pure seduction of such incredible earth essences captured so delicately? Plant magic is a delciate art – you have to love this to produce such miracles. Their oils are miracles.

I like to use essential oils on a diffusing bracelet made by my friend Rebbecah at Seed Essentials. She hand carves diffusing ceramic into natural seed like shapes and uses polished mala style gemstones and woods in harmony. I requested this piece to be in all black transformative and grounding stones. It has Jet, Lava, Onyx and Obsidian. Using VFH oils with this bracelet has been a dream for me. Though the oils are diluted in care so you can apply them directly to the body which is nice; I am very sensitive to these types of EO’s so the bracelet is a nice alternative for me vs. skin. Also  I’ve used this bracelet to help my little one get the benefits of these oils. He has a cold as we speak and I’ll drop VFH eucalyptus on the bracelet and ask him to smell it, carefully. He enjoys it and it helps to open up passageways!

The ?universe has a way of telling you that you are on the right path. Today 3 years ago on my birthday I climbed a volcano and touched lava with a stick on the big island in Hawaii. It awakened my spirit in a way nothing else but giving birth had done since. It was a very tough hike and since the tour service has had to close due to dangerous conditions. Today I received this beautiful package from @vetiver_farms_hawaii with three incredible oils I can smell right through each box. I've been wearing this grounding bracelet from @seedessentials with a diffuser bead for a few weeks now and am beyond excited to use them together and in some of our shop yummies! ✨ thank you for such a treat!! Aaaand impeccable timing I must say! ? These Jade Agate polished bangles are the only two I have left in my etsy shop in jade (a few customers have asked) ✨✌️ Spoon ring by @mal_wingostarrjewelry ✨??#saturday #bigisland #essentialoils #thatgoodgood #aromatherapy #vetiverfarmshawaii

OILS BY VETIVER FARMS HAWAII , DIFFUSING BRACLET BY SEEDESSENTIALS, SPOON RING BY WINGOSTARR JEWELRY

I love to blend Vetiver Farm’s Eucalyptus with their Vetiver. It’s really high time that people open up to the powers of the olgfactory process (the reactionary system produced from our sense of scent) ! It is the most direct route to our nervous system. Something about Vetiver has called to me a lot lately. It supports sleep for starters, and has a unisex appeal. I personally resonate with deeper, rounder tones vs. sweet scents. It’s also very grounding, calming, sensual and tunes your root chakric system. Eucalyptus is a powerhouse oil and has those invigorating and awakening properties as well. Together, for me,  it’s a motivator and anxiety buster. The quality of the Vetiver Farms Hawaii’s products is the actual vigor of the island captured in a bottle. Check out their instagram feed to see how neat the process of growing this plant is! @Vetiver_farms_hawaii

Making ✨magic✨ with the help of @vetiver_farms_hawaii ? so in love with the freshness and quality of their oils!!! Just a few drops in this clay milk facial mask to open passages and pores! #skincare #shopsmall #vetiverfarmshawaii #detox #health #fitness #vitality #bybethkaya

VETIVER FARMS HAWAII – EUCALYPTUS OIL BEING USED IN BK SCRUB

I also had the pleasure of mingling with another beautiful herbalist from the big island as well – Shawn from Honest Owl Herbal Apothecary (OHA). She sent me so many incredible things. She captures the gentle vibration of herbs and flowers in moon drenched waters and butters. Incredible. Absolutely. Every inch of these products has love from the notes to the packaging and preperation. I used her Tulsi and Sandalwood Hair Conditioner tonight and truly was just crying about how much my textured hair wants to dread. It’s crispy and needed the clarifying lift this gentle aromatic product lended.  This spray soothed it, softened it and didn’t leave it oily like other products on the market! I’ve taken her flower essences in times of anxiety along with my essential oils from VFH and can delightfully and honestly say – both are aiding me right now.

HONEST OWL APOTHECARY FLOWER ESSENCE AND ORCHID NECKLACE. ECLIPSE NECKLACE BY EMMY EFF DESIGNS

The “innercalm” balm from HOA – is such a dream too. I put it ALL over me tonight after the shower. It feels so emollient like a hug. The scent is calming and warm, there is surely some ancient magic inside of this balm. Incredible. I put some on my feet and then some socks over top and it was like a miracle going on in there. So awesome! Thank you both!

Lots of events, SOUPERGROOVE music festival was a success! We loved our dream team staff, mineral guru Conni from @Autumsunoriginals and our dear friend Shanna – Homesteading Extraordinare in her own right! We had a blast sharing love for crystal energy with the festival goers!

We filled out monthly residency at the Murray Grove Renewal and Retreat Center in loving company as well. The Random Test Reggae Band played their Sunday Cafe house and were so full of energy and incredible spirit. Everyone danced and my four year old walked right up and highfived them and told them they “made his heart happy”! You HAVE to come to these cafe houses! Check Murray Grove out on facebook for their flier. I also have been moonlighting with their marketing team and word on the street is we might do a bingo night when the chill gets a little thicker!

I have had to refill this box each night. Made my sweet husband go shopping at the crib because I sold a lot of my most special pieces and I gotta keep it fresh. Thank you @jdrewsilvers for making such lovely homes for all of my special earth gifts and thank you #soupergroove for being such mineral lovers!! Especially like usual the kids! Kids are so sensitive to Crystal energy! Give a kid you love a crystal! See what happens! #crystals #minerals #flowerchild #festivallife #crystalinfused

Also just finished up Open Minded Smoke and Specialty in Toms River ‘s 4th anual customer appreciation day. I have had the pleasure of evolving and vending this event each year – I left in tears literally overwhelmed by the growth and beauty of the day. Jennifer, Fran and Melissa over there are incredible people and they make that spot a hub for love and kindness in this community. If you are on the Jersey Shore, it’s an attraction you must visit. Tons of loving things in there to intruige and nourish the spirit.

✨Packing - like all these Rolling Stones - another show tomorrow in Toms River NJ at Open Minded - Please come kick it!

These are intentionally bundled goodies that I put together and my lovely Instagrammers have a shot to bid for them. Well we are a bit over the one year mark on these auctions and they have been a HUGE success. Every single one has sold, and gone to completely loving hands. They usually end a bit lower then the retail cost of the bundles so that gives people some access to some of these products for less and it’s just fun. There’s loads of people on Insta doing it too! Exploring photography and the platform for different things. I hope to continue to create these fun things and hope they are received just as lovingly! Thank you to my instagram audience for helping to make them a total success! (This one closes at 9PM EST Sunday! )

Happy Birthday #BethKayaAuctions (If you search that tag you can see some of the auctions I’ve done over the last year!)

My Heart, Beth

Good chilly and blustery afternoon friends and loves – I have been plugging away at a very special digital showcase for you! I decided not to do an annual trunk show this year – BKDC has been growing so much and I didn’t want the stress of something I was doing for just my work.

During a goal setting exercise I noticed a repeated theme, I really really was jazzed about working with other unique artists. So I decided to host a little online pop shop and promotion ring! This flier/ mini – site (which is still being added to!) will tell you all about the promotional deals I am offering for November and some of my peers too! We are all makers with this line of work as our primary source of income. Please take a look through the shops by clicking on their images. In the checkout make sure you let them know you found them through BethKaya’s flier! If you are an artist and would like to share a promotion with us email BethKaya@gmail.com.

Enjoy browsing! Make sure you pay attention to each shops timeline for manufacturing – our little fingers need some time to create your special pieces for the holidays!
