The store features all of my favorite holistic bath and beauty brands and some new ones you’ve maybe never heard of. I have scouted independent brands from etsy and all over and have connected to bring you unique and honest products meant to make you happy and feel whole. I have handpicked such amazing items for you to explore. Books, Candles, Gifts, Home Fragrance, Plants and so much more.

This has been my life’s passion and it means everything to have gotten this far and to have the support of the community. We have a suggestion box in front of the check out desk if you want to tell me about something you love or would like to see me carry at the store. We are also looking to host some support groups, open crafting hours, lectures and more in the space. Please look for BethKaya and Self Care Cove on social media / facebook & instagram.

Karma Cartel Fragrance Launch – Collab

Back in October of 2015 I vended a local punk rock flea market. In the front area I remember meeting these two well dressed young men, with sleek correlating gear on. They were Jose Serrano and Chris Rockwell, partners for the clothing and lifestyle brand, Karma Cartel. I wouldn’t know it till nearly a year later, they would be collaborating with my own brand.

Chris runs a local series of events and coordinates with a lot of local talent in a very unique way. Support, Encouragement and Teamwork seem to be values that engulf the activities that the gentlemen take part in and host.

We found ourselves cosmically meeting to create a new flavor for their incredible brand, a pair of fragrances. These fragrances would embody the moral, spiritual and even swagger of their blooming indie label.

Several smell sessions and thought storms later, a really effortless set of communicating fragrances were born. ” K ” & ” C “

While entirely meant to both be unisex, one employs more of an assertive vigor while the other is softer and vulnerable.

image1Each is firmly rooted in  fine sandalwood and home brewed madagascar vanilla. “K” is twisted with brighter coconut tones and “C” is bound in leather & amber.  “K ” is paired with genuine grade AAA peridot and moonstone and whole Jasmine Buds. “C” is met with genuine garnet & coffee moonstone as well as red sandalwood bark.  Sandalwood and Jasmine both represented a karmic relationship, as both are deemed in some cultures as holy and sacred natural offerings. Both are made of certified green fragrances and plant concentrates and are nearly completely natural. image2 The outcome of this duo is much like the collaboration itself, my organic vibe meets their urban luxe & street spirit driven aura and the results are in the fragrances. Like all of my hues, each is meant to take you somewhere you longed to be,  perhaps once knew, and most certainly wish to go to again and again.
