Re-Emerging, Renewed – BethKaya 3.0 Spring Update

Bali life is pretty good. As in, it's amazing. I'm grateful for every single second of it. And the tub is definitely a bonus :)
When we still lived in Java I got dengue fever and typhoid a few times. You just get sick a bit easier here in the tropics. We didn't have hot water for years, and when we left I knew I wanted to move to house with a bath for the days we get ill. When the soreness and the aching gets into your bones and your knuckles, and it hurts even to lie down, nothing is more relieving than a nice warm bath. And a little self-care on the weekends never hurts!

COVER ART / :listen:

So it’s been about 2 months since I have checked in here. There is so much to say. Let’s start with I am feeling good. That’s a great place to be. This surgery was huge but also reminded me how small I am as well. A lot of surviving hardship is about “surrender” – a lot happens we don’t expect, and when we resist , it becomes even tougher. This time I surrendered and am very pleased with things.

The time I’ve had off to focus on self care has been wonderful. My soul feels like I gave myself the space and energy it deserved to get through this hurdle. The tumors came out clean, pathology came out great and I have spent my time resting, binging on a new found love for television and a reignited old flame, pinterest. I realised that I haven’t felt RESTFUL in so long. No wonder I was constantly anxious and stressed out.

This experience has been a shift and a gift. I hope you all enjoyed the instagram takeover from my dear friend Meri from @gardensofthesun

https://gardensofthesun.net/ out of Bali. She let us into how she enjoy’s BethKaya’s goodies from her lens and voice.

If you missed her residency here are some outtakes!

Caption: The bug soap is my daughter's absolute fave. She loves the subtle scent, the soft lilac color and how she can let it fly over the tub.  Next up I hope to give her one of Beth's golden buddha soaps! Has anyone tried those yet?

The salt scrub is my absolute fave. This is my third bag of the most divine smelling salts. Beth, you can never ever stop making these!!! . . . . . [Bethkaya takeover by @gardensofthesun]

I've been a raving fan of BethKaya for several years now. I still remember my very first purchase from Beth - the warm vanilla fig perfume oil mixed with little rough gems. I keep coming back to this scent, it's the one that got me hooked. Do you remember your first purchase from Beth?

The gemstones hidden inside the soaps are the best thing ever! It's like a little surprise. The tumbled stone is slowly revealing itself from the Brandied Pear & Lemon Poppy Soap. Can you guess what stone it is?

"How does Beth even dream up all these wonderful combinations?! I mean citrus, basil, vanilla and mint! Amethyst, lavender and orange!

What a beautiful tone to return to!

I still need a few weeks to get my act and line up together. But my focus is centered on re-invigorated intentions – tones like Citrus, Ginger, Orchid, Artic, Mint , Guava, Coconut and Rain,. I will lean on those myself to get my physical capacity back up to where it once was again then design self care pearls for the shop.

On another note some; and by some I mean a “paraphrased few” of my words were published in an article “sort of” about self care in Refinery29 – you can find the article here:

What do you think about it?

It’s ironic that a little self pampering and love is exactly what I needed for so long considering this is what my offerings are rooted within. Sending you all the best the ides of march has to offer and thank you for many of your supports.

Makeup
Makeup can be the difference between feeling undead
And human again
A bra
A bra is motivation to do something
House work ?
A scar below the bikini line seeing with two stab wound eyes in the belly and a belly button puncture for a nose
Can mean weight or weightless
And a prayer you’ll never forget how hard the fight is
And where to see the light is
even when bleeding from where you shouldn’t be

 

See you in April!

Warmest –

Beth

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

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 ⚡️
