So if you follow us on social media you see a lot of changes we are going through as a business. For one I keep saying WE – yes we- I have a dear friend Michelle Russo who is flying copilot right now with BethKaya and the new venture – Self Care Cafe. She’s a beautiful soul, if you’re a friend of BethKaya, you know her by now but I will just formally say she is helping me keep my head above water. Along with several other players, you know who you are, and your time is coming. Thank you to everyone again and again for donating and supporting our self care mission!

Big meeting today - cohorts ;) if you are on the jersey shore and want to catch some poetry Sunday eve DM me!!

We leased a space in Brick NJ and it’s adorable, the issues we are having getting into the space however, not so adorable. That’s an entirely different post and for all things considered, let’s keep the tone happy.

I just did a late season restock on some new soaps, scent sizes, crystal parcels and orgone pieces. As I have money invested into the store front – I simply need your support. Things I’ve been sitting on are going to need to get uploaded and move out! So stay tuned to the etsy shop and keep checking back. It will take time for us to get into the space and we need the online business to have the same level of dedication if not more to be able to keep this dream floating.

INDIAN SUMMER

We are signed on to vend the Asbury Indian Summer Bazaar on Sunday Sept 24! I will be releasing more info about that in a little while but for now mark your calenders, it’s my birthday weekend btw so you simply can’t miss it! Not to mention tons of amazing vendors in the hottest spot on the jersey shore!

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 ⚡️

Beth Bath and Beyond

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

This was a pretty big past few weeks – sorry I haven’t been able to check into the blog as much. Doing a LOT of work on the self – the whole past year being “under the weather” and now being better – able focused – able minded, you emit that. So a lot of crazy change, opportunity and duds have come my way and this is a huge time for me as a business. I am growing and want to do that in all the right ways. I just went to the annual Edison Gem Show – and grabbed some new babies and ran into some familiar faces. My friend Amy from Faerie Blessings was one of those faces! Her daughter called me “Beth Bath and Beyond” – isn’t that adorable? Hence the title! All of those crystals will be rolling out soon. GilmourCrystal

Also that week I went to see David Gilmour at the Garden last week and it was EPIC. I brought some crystals up to the nosebleeds where we were and these crystals and I left super happy and shredded by guitar. Remembering the passing of my dear friend Steve this time and how much he loved Gilmour, sometimes those events become sacraments & passages.

BATHBOMBSPREAD

I am in full swing production of my summer collections. I have a lot of exciting vending events coming up in the warmer months and have a little retail spot residency brewing – I will keep you posted on those. Feel free to check out my Events tab on the website to see whats up there.

 

Moringa Layered

This is a double layer of faithful grace soap and moringa soap – my two shop best sellers, together in harmony. Married by Himalayan Pink salt, Moringa & moonstone – the two contrasting soaps and scents meet up in a beautiful dual purposeful synergy. Use the moringa side for the face and the shea side for body!

surfside There are several “beach tones” also and this scent is one of them but it deserves its own listing. SURFSIDE is warm, with a hint of a madagascar vanilla paired with coconut hues and finished but a burn of copper. I am going to feature products this season with this scent – soaps, scrubs and fragrance solids.

poetrylegs

I’m really enjoying the local poetry scene lately with my friends. It’s always a great time to explore your vocabulary and language styling and the stylings of others emotions via their words. Good wholesome, emotional fun! Loving more of a gothic boho look these days too – these leggings under my black on black usual are from FreeSpiritLoveShop by Mallory Wingo. They are slaying it with my beloved combats!

Heres to the onslught of summer! Keep me posted with fun events!

Getting back into the swing of things, the thick of winter – new structure for the shop. Slowly healing, getting myself back – taking it in stride and pulling all of my newest lessons into view.

Keeping loyal friends, and honest – well makers in my own healing & vitality arsenal. Producing now on a farm to table like scale – every few weeks I am writing a menu of sorts – assessing my herbs and flowers / raw materials and designing these ritual bath hues for you and myself really.

I’ve enjoyed partaking in all of this season’s products as they are developed and truthfully need these nourishment tools. There is nothing in a day that you do solely for yourself but your grooming rituals.

Sometimes those rituals can be the difference between “put together” and “falling apart”. A simple shower in the middle of a crisis, after trauma or whatever can sew a person up – make you anew, almost like a sunrise.

I cling to those moments somedays. Feeling so much, being able to lose myself in a silly little ritual of applying eyeliner or blush. It reboots.

Holding sacred space and crushing external and internal expectations has been paramount to the healing and creative process for me as a person. Especially lately – what things do you do to reboot yourself and set aside a sactuary?

Sacred Loose Smudge Blend

Sacred Loose Smudge Blend – For Cleaning Sacred Spaces and Removing Bad Juju

 

A lot of my work if you haven’t gathered is centered around these sacred space and self ritual functions. My goal is to make them nourishing and enhanced.

Speaking of enhanced, if you are one of my Portland Oregon friends, please check out my Cannabis Flower & Fig Scents found at FARMA a beautiful luxury recreational and medicinal cannabis boutique. Those hues are unisex and a customer and now FARMA PDX favorite!

FARMA

Feel free to comment before with your thoughts! Approaching 20K subscriber on Instagram – I think that is just silly and wonderful. Thank you so much whoever is out there for the support.

When I do hit 20K I will be giving this orgone and gemstone parcel away to a lucky following who has shared it with the hashtag #BethKaya20K.

Time Rolls On and Healing

"Bloom For Your Conditions, Always"

“Bloom For Your Conditions, Always”

 

Happy 2016! I am wholly not sure if anyone reads my blog. I chase the digital streets in a lot of corners so who knows where I shed traction or not. Surely the last year has been explosive for my @BethKaya instagram account but I ALSO notice funny things happening with it because of that. I won’t go there but it’s also been a source of new growth.

So I had a gnarly surgery to remove a large mass that grew in my breast and side recently. It is NOT cancer – but it was a 3″ edenoma/fibrocystic/calcium mass that doesn’t exactly scream out “I’m Healthy!” and caused me a lot of infections and discomfort in my muscles and ducts. So it came out and I am recovering OK. It’s been a process I will not lie. My dominant arm was affected by the surgery and that wasn’t exactly anticipated. I’ve had to look at some parts of myself internally and externally and confront those things. The business has been a huge experiment and test as a person, artist, mother, wife and friend. It’s also been a test of balance, of my love for YOU and what I do with intention. It means so much to me, it’s my sacred path. Not everyone gets it, not everyone got it last year – and I experienced losses soley do to misalignment in life path / structure with others and that is OK. We are not all aligned at once, or in the same sequence at the same time. I do believe that our relationships and insights change as we experience life and we are constantly evaluating the worth of things we do and the reward/benefit to doing them.

This is all very leveling. I know that as I stare down a road to healing it won’t be overnight. Also – moving ahead I must be even more critical of what goes in my body, just as I am about what goes on it. Everything is sobering and only ads to my resolve. So the shop is closed for a few more days. When I reopen it will flow a little differently. Inventory will be real time and customs will not be offered at the moment. I have a LOT of stock that I made, especially leading up to the procedure. Maybe I had an intuitive hunch after all on my arm but that is where I will lie when I reopen. Premade! I hope you all had a great new year. Setting intentions – healthy healthy is all I can think about right now! Follow along on facebook if you wish – join in the conversation and participation. Lifestyle is everything to vitality! This forum is about sharing, accountability and most of all living well.

Love and Light

The Butterfly Wellness Project – An Opening Ode

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Healing comes in many shapes and forms ✨ #crystalgrid #merkaba #sacredgeometry #comfort #determination #poise ❤️ #crystalhealing

It is the moment we realize that we are always in transit, that we can ever fully arrive. Sometimes, change can occur over a period of time, incidents and instability. Sometimes, change can occur in a heartbeat.

I wonder about that heartbeat. How loud does it shake the walls inside of my body? Is it a healthy tone like my favorite guitar player’s amplifier? The biggest gift you can give to yourself is worthiness. Everything you’ve ever wanted to do in life, almost – can be activated on self worth alone.

The Butterfly Wellness Project is a campaign towards fitness, sharing goals, aligning vitality, health and wellness solutions on a universal level. Without wellness, there can be no wholeness. I am on my own journey and hope through sharing this with you that together we can achieve our goals goals.

The Butterfly Wellness Project 1

I am worth my goals. I am worth a complete lifestyle shift further into awakened living. You are too.

Thank you for sharing this affirmation and I look forward to talking more about the Butterfly Wellness Project with you!

I started a new instagram feed to highlight this initiative.

@ButterflyWellnessBeth

Light in you and all around you,

Beth
