Intention Setting Through Gemstones, Natural Beauty and Perfumes

Taking back the blog after dedicating it to the charity fundraiser we did for “Giving for Gwendolyn”. This has been an incredible year of transformation and growth for me as a person, spiritualist and artist. Collaborating with other artists and making new friends has been incredible. The new circles of energy I find myself thriving among has awakened certain sensibilities about my work that I had moved away from. When I moved into my first apartment I was 17. I had a full time job and budding career already. It was at this time that I visited a farm that was locally producing natural body products and goods – Terra Essentials. I walked through the shop and was accosted by the owner. She started to introduce me to her line and asked me some questions about the products I was currently using in my shower and home. She started to shoot some very serious holes in those products identifying the toxins I was unknowingly exposing myself to. Nuerotoxins, Carcinogens, Petro Chemicals and More – All of which were making their way down my drains and into water sources. No Bueno. After this visit I went home and took a look around my home and realized I had a big, costly problem. Most of the products I was using came from the dollar store. There is nothing, virtually nothing good for you or your body from the dollar store. That was a problem. I was on a fierce budget.

So that’s when my journey to create “better-for-me” bath and body goods began. I began with buying basic raw ingredients and replacing things one by one. I used recipes from websites, and trusted sources for cleaning product that actually did the job better then the toxic products I was using from the dollar store. A little orange peel, vinegar and lavender essential oils goes the distance when brewed right!

A few years into these practices my tried and true recipes began to emerge. They are recipes I took with me to NYC and sort of fell into just a personal hobby instead of anything I thought to offer to my current Jewelry customers.

I have always had a profound connection to ancient culture and gemstones. I’m not sure why, but it’s something I remember being totally engrossed in while I was young with a side interest in space. At one point I remember wanting to be an archaeologist, a gemologist and an astronaut all at once when I grew up. Somehow, despite being none of those things now, I don’t feel as though I fell to terribly far from that path. In fact, I was intention setting and didn’t even realize it!

After leaving the corporate marketing world post the birth of my son – I thought it was high time I invested myself into my jewelry full time. It had always been a sidebar goal, something the career lent the means to the ends for but since I left that behind I wanted to emerge with the design skillet I’d honed for the last decade and studied in college. Jewelry is among the oldest forms of adornment and display status. Gemstones, fit right in there equally and with perfection. It seemed like my path was on. What I didn’t realize was that while I had been on a path I was SO SURE about, the real path came into development and it’s much more then jewelry.

Sacred Salt Bath Soak, Sea Clay Hemp Soap, Gemstone and Botanical Infused Roll On Perfumes*

I started developing perfumes along the road here for myself in addition to the natural products I was making to use in my home. With a large organic garden and growing experience with essential oils and tinctures, it seemed like a natural progression for my “better-for-me” journey. Most commercial perfumes and scented products, I cannot tolerate anymore. Headaches, Skin Reactions and the like are not things I will compromise on for beauty. Working with a close chemist friend of mine – the perfume formulas took almost 2 years to get perfect. Now, paired with gemstones, our botanical elements and blended with intent, they have pushed themselves into the forefront of my design work because they are loved dearly but those who wear them.

So here I am now, experiencing this major revolution once again. The products I use for myself, for beauty and sacred spirit are available to you in small batches and infused with gemstone energy, botanical essences and the purest of intentions.

Best Selling Scent, "Faithful Grace"

Best Selling Scent, “Faithful Grace”

My jewelry work is going to take a back seat to the center stage here. I will still be doing custom engraved works and custom energy pieces and will always. I believe in wearing mantras and special tokens but going forward, I want to devote my body of work to the spiritual journey I have been on for a long time. I want to showcase the powers of intuition and creativity “BethKaya” possess and offer the highest quality goods and spiritual services to you in service to the great spirit and the light.  I proudly am a newly ordained “priestess” and have been discovering new ways to integrate spiritual living, ceremonial rituals and gem energy into every day life thus giving way to the tag line:

“Spirited and Holistic Gemstone & Botanical Infused Works and Services From The Heart”

What is setting intent?

Intention setting is Meditating or Channeling a spirit guide, or asking your higher self and guides for specific things and sourcing vibrational energy to support that goal! Try it!

Etsy is more then where I host the goods I am hustling – its a social media platform with a LOT of flair. Part of that flair is the opportunity to host or curate little exhibits if you will – called “treasuries” that feature etsy products in a theme. Whether they are just wishlists or items in the key of purple – they are little collections of handmade goodies means to delight and awe almost like a museum showcase would! I find myself getting lost in the art of treasury making myself – so here are a few of my recent treasuries to help you out for the holidays!

Enjoy!
