Holiday Season Update

This has been a hard and emotional week. Stretched beyond what I ever thought imaginable, and strained by relationships sometimes. I think I need to be firmer about not people pleasing and honoring my truths and boundaries. What are ways you assert yours? Melissa from the @selfcarecove crew made these with flowers and herbs from our family garden. Black eyed Susans are my home state's flower (MD). They are still blooming in this crazy Cali weather!!

Greetings! The holiday season is almost here! A time to share our gratitude and love for one another.  Our focus has been creating the perfect bundles to help you care for your mind/body/spirit.
Give the gift to yourself and loved ones this season of self-care!
We are kind of going on tour! We have been working hard to prepare for some exciting events in Asbury Park this December with the store opening being so up in the air. We want to get the products in your hands however we have to do it!
December 10th and 17th, we will be returning to the Bazaar in Convention Hall for their annual holiday vendor event. The Indian Summer bazaar in September was a blast and we are anticipating this will be even more so. Grab some hot cocoa and join us for the fun!
On December 22nd, we will be in Asbury Park once again for a very special workshop. Keli Skellinger, the esteemed owner of Maitrisage – Massage + Reflexology, invited us to her monthly Sukha Series to share our wisdom and products right before Christmas. We decided to offer a relaxing bath soak and tea ritual that has been a staple of our daily self-care. For a $15 suggested donation, you will be able to create your own salts bath to take home! Bring your oils or use ours and we’ll bring the salt bar! We will have a table set up for the event as well, so it will be a perfect time to stock up on any last minute gifts.  By the way, Keli is an amazing body worker – Asbury Park and Jersey Shore locals need to hit her up if you need the best massage you’ve ever had. She’s magical.
Be on the lookout soon for our upcoming store announcements. We have been creating a beautiful space in Brick Township to share with all of you. Our permits were released TODAY so that means it will be a few more weeks yet. Maybe December 1? We will see – I hope you’ll support us now and when we finally open. Our loyal patrons have been so wonderful! Until then, you will be able to shop online at https://www.etsy.com/shop/bethkaya
**If you are local, you can save on shipping and pick up your online order at the store! Just mention it in the comment section. We will refund/ or hold your shipping and arrange the best time for you to pick it up. Also, we ship ALL over the world and gift wrap, so if you want to beat the holiday rush at the post office, once the store is open, we can totally assist.
**Those ordering BethKaya goods online, please note that shipping times are 10-14 business days. Please take that into consideration when placing orders, we do high volume and there is only a few hands in the pot – we never want to rush our process. You all know by now that we treat each package really special and pack an experience into each one! Please reach out if you have gifting needs or if you need to rush your package past the queue.
Additionally we have holistic products galore in boxes waiting for our store to open. We have ALL of the best brands, BethKaya of course and names like Jason, Zum, Aura Cacia, Burts Bees, Doctor Bronner’s and More!
Contact Beth to set a budget and create a spa care gift set for you or a loved one this season. We will prepare it based on your tastes or the scents you think your loved ones would like and then package it beautifully and send it wherever you wish! You may call the store’s phone number also if you wish to speak to me or an associate about placing an order or visiting!
732.477.4307
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We wish you a beautiful holiday filled with love and new memories.
Love,
Bethkaya & the Self Care Cove

COVERART / LISTEN

Spring has sprung! My shop is open and flowing. I am slow and going, but moving! Some changes – ship time will be a little slower, please understand I take a lot of time on each package and personalize every one. This isn’t an overnight thing, especially with some welcome volume!

Oilspiration! Alllll day! . . . . . . #essentialoils #rollon #gemstones #botanicals #plantmedicine

Less green fragrances, nothing new for this season in that department, just old favorites people love. This collection is aimed at people who are sensitive to chemicals and also essential oils. With that, I have designed SO MANY essential oil aromatherapy blends and am releasing them little by little to share with you.

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!

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
