Autumn is Here, BethKaya Line is Up and Trickling Out!

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

It may not be officially fall yet but in my world it’s here – I am so dizzy and late on an update. I rolled out a few new soap tones and sets live in my etsy shop now! Bath melts are taking a little longer , they are actually the kind of thing that takes a bit of finesse!

COVER ART: {listen while reading}

Stay tuned for new scent hue announcements and tune into my @BETHKAYA instagram account for some giveaway updates! The blog content is going to ramp up big time. My little one is off to school and I have more time for the business. The plan is to expand presence which is already in motion. BETHKAYA just landed at new yoga studios in NJ, NY and Scotland! I will be doing blogs about all the locations that carry my label and interviews with some of my peers in the self made industry. These are always textured and interesting people, so I want to share their mission & why with you through an interview style process here on the blog.

In the mean time here are some of the latest creations live in my shop, These are seasonal things that might not come back next shift around the sun. I love working my shop like a farm to table cafe of sorts. It somewhat is; with ingredients being fresh, seasonal and limited here and there. Every season the “menu” takes a different shape. It’s a really lovely and quasi ephemeral way to design intentional bath and body. Check it out:

✨A few new things in the shop just for Fall - including this #THIEVES guardian #soap - Historical #EssentialOil Blend known as Thieves - Clove, Orange Peel, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf and Rosemary - gets its moniker from the time of the bubonic plague when bodies would pile up and pillagers used this blend to thwart contracting plague while robbing their discarded spoils. I've paired this blend with a soothing guardian soap and #blackonyx perfect for blocking illness and bad energy infections. ✨Till midnight I'm including Black Orgone Tetras in ALL shop orders.⚡️ BethKaya / etsy ⚡️

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Fresh off my sister’s wedding, spring is folding through and summer will be here soon enough. I listed some things over the weekend and some items just flew out like these orgone on rosary gemstone chains. Good thing I stopped into a quaint little bead shop in Richmond VA on my travels to grab more and I will release those soon. But there are awesome restocks of various new spins on soaps for the season all with a crystal inside in new scents and old formulations you have loved. Thank you to my customers for  your beautiful reviews! That does a lot of the talking, just like your smile and skin! Love to you! Beth  www.bethkaya.etsy.com UPDATE

Crystal Eyes – Fall things At BethKaya

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

My crystal stems ☺️?

Rocked out Skullboy’s Punk Rock Flea market yesterday. What a fun event to do. In a serious reflection phase right now heading into winter. A lot happened over the summer, and now the fall is going to slip away soon enough. My work evolves and things fall away, relationships and ideas that sounded so awesome as first go to the back burner. What’s my biggest priority?

What’s yours?

Great day today and just want to send a major shout out to this lady next to me Ms. Geraldine. @zuelanchic what can I say about her - if it wasn't for her no one would see me. I am an anxious recluse, afraid of what the world thinks of me and of my work. There's a lot to misunderstand, and I'm used to it. Just another day of being an alien for Beth. Thank you Ger - for putting up with it and keeping your grace on when I crumble. Thanks for encouraging me and believing in me and dealing with my bullshit. I love you and you are so beautiful. ❤️

Glad to be able to get out and do events. I am naturally inclined to stay home, I think most people are now. Kind of a pity. This is my friend Geraldine, she’s an amazing artist herself .

So onward into winter – new scent notes came in and I am busy mixing those into some potions of the season. Those will emerge soon enough.

To give you a teaser, hues of cannabis flower, olive, fig, cranberry, pipe tobacco, warm sweet orange, stargazer and more.

? fatty mascot ? thanks for having me @skullboybrand @skullboyspunkrockfleamarket ?✨?✨?✨?✨?✨

I hope that you all are enjoying fall and settling into things. Thank you to those of you who came out to support me at all of the events that I have done over the last few months. It means a lot to me. Truly.

Finishing up my annual marigold harvest and having a moment. Marigolds in so many cultures are symbols of the great spirit, offerings of overcoming, resurrection and hardiness. The ability to withstand an entire growing season, multiply and fall away to rebirth again when conditions are ripe and Hades releases Persephone once again into the mortal world. ?My nerves were hitting me for tomorrow's show ⚡️I know it's gonna be great but I do get nerves! ??I got this pouch from @mal_wingostarrjewelry 's Redbubble @redbubble of her #gratitude crystal meditation. It's perfect and such incredible quality. I've gotten a bunch of these pieces from her and the Redbubble community. ??Super rad hub there !! I'm so grateful to be doing what I do so it will be close to me ❤️tomorrow at the Skullboy Punk Rock Flea Market. (Brick NJ 12-5 Google it!) ? ✨Tagging some folks I'm grateful for and weave a wonderful fabric here of #artistry and goodness. Sorry to leave anyone out if I could only shine light all at once! (Then maybe too bright ?) ✨? #Tap & Follow? ? Any Fun weekend plans you wanna share? ???

Harvested the last of the marigolds and felt overwhelmed to be where I am right now. There are so many obstacles in life, and wellness and health is one of those things you cannot compromise on. I am looking forward to spending more time on my health and inspiring the health of others while I continue to make close to earth products. I’m eternally grateful to the fistful of people in the business I can trust and support my successes. As you grow – it’s harder to find people who genuinely support your happiness. When you find those people, treat them well and hold them close.

Please take a minute to view my updated Butterfly Wellness tab – on this site. I added some new details about that project and would love for you to join me on the facebook community I created for it. I need your support and would love to support your own transformation!

Working on a few collaboration promotions with awesome artists and wellness giveaways in the pipeline soon so make sure you are tuned into @BETHKAYA on social media!!

Eternally yours, spiritually driven and hopeful towards healthy,

Beth

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! Fun stuff going down all day - food , music, cool kids 💎 I'm having a gem show and doing free henna tats! Sending you all tons of love and Caturday night fevah!! #birthdaygirl #artist #gemstones #minerals #polishedgems #tumbledgemstones #quartz #carnelian #calcite #crystalhealing #crystalinfused #bybethkaya

“Aura” – Titanium Quartz

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Oh another lifetime ago back in 06 my classmate friend Beth and I went to a cooky networking dinner at the Fashion Institute for a forum of jewelry industry professionals known as “Ganoskin”. We sat at round tables dining with people who had been in the business already and chatting about new alloys, precious metal clay (emerging at the time), and of course what was hot and who was who this year from the Tuscan Gem show. An older fella at the table dug into his pocket and pulled out a strange and almost psychedelic set of specimens. We marveled at them, passing them around the table. Heat treatments are not new to stones. Most colored stones are heat treated in some form to enhance or change their color. Stone guys experimented with different alloys and found that by including them in the treatment process they’d flash the stones with amazing colors and tones.

This Titanium Quartz has emerged and it’s really making a claim in the world of spirit style. Often referred to as “Aurora Borealis ” Quartz or “Aura Quartz” – It’s gained a reputation for being the stone for the compassionate as it’s said to help you clarify the “aura and energy” surrounding yourself and others.

Here is an etsy treasury I put together of items you can own with these stones from myself and other etsy sellers.
