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!

 

Additionally – the lovely Zoe Wilder has written a beautiful article about us again and it landed in Magnetic Magazine! Check it out here!

Inching Toward Hiatus

Bye 2016 :)

 

I was happy to say goodbye to 2016. I think so many people were. It was like a whole internet thing. Now 2017 is here and I’ve stepped on a few rakes already. I guess perhaps no one should blame an entire YEAR for what is actually LIFE.

15803099_1246674208705084_4739411744445693952_n So I have a surgery date on the map , 2/9 – this month will be filled with pre op tests and also focused production for a final push in my shop before I go on a hiatus. I have NO idea what that will look like. There are so many questions, but all of it is unknown. I must get to the other side, and I will.

Same with goodbyes - things come , things go , bullies can be disguised as spiritualists and blessings can be disguised as illness. So it goes ⚡️grateful for truth and truth seekers

There’s a quiet calm right now flowing through my fingertips. This is where great design comes from. I know that the beauty in my life comes from source. There was a lot of loss this past year for me. In bad and good ways.

Some of those ways purely sat on my attitude. I hardened. There were moments coming up in this business where knives went into my back. I am still climbing, always climbing. There’s always a new view to find and there’s always unstable ground.

Guava with peridot, carnelian, solar quartz. What am I gonna do with you? Sometimes I feel kind of paralyzed like stuck in creating mode and not peddling mode. I accumulate so much work here in my home, my sister was freaked out when she came last. Truth be told I hate to see things I've created come to perversion of any kind. It means more to me than the sale does to the wrong hands. I hope with every package sent there is this cloud of intention that the recipient gets. Art is vulnerability , constantly. It sets you up to receive both light and shadow. 15 years ago I made my first candle and belly salve in my studio front window on 3rd Street in Frederick Maryland. Two of my girlfriends were pregnant and I scented them with kiwi and orange. The climb is long I suppose; with winding turns and you're never really reaching the last summit - there's just more climb. That's ok. It's interesting that despite forks and twists you end up where you should be. The red slipper effect? Perhaps.

With all of this the blaring message is clear to me and where I want my work to continue to evolve towards. SELF CARE is paramount. The items I create are rooted in self care and the take away is that no one can be whole, without nourishing their minds, bodies and souls. My customers come to me for this and I want to bring more than ever to the table in this sense. But first I have to take care of my health and see where I land. Its totally a crapshoot waiting game. I am planning things, with beautiful people and I feel really confident that in 2017 I will have a HUGE announcement.

Follow me at SELF CARE CAFE on Instagram. My dear friend and alliance with this project Michelle will be co hosting this with me. The goal is to promote healthy self care rituals, products, meals and brands, for now ;).

Thanks for checking back in and supporting my work!

Happy Holidays and thank you to all of my beautiful patrons. It’s been a really abundant year at BethKaya. Going into surgery  (date is set now 2/9) I am confident that afterwards I will be onto bigger things.

Happily featured in Magnetic Magazine’s Last minute Cannabis Inspired Holiday Gift Guide. My fragrances based around Cannabis Flower come in Fig & Olive, Maple & Seasalt, Sandalwood blends and more!

SEE THE ARTICLE HERE

Here are some items I’ve been tinkering with just seasonally in small batches. I am going through this phase of creating items that appeal to the solar plexus and uplift spirits, naturally it being winter sometimes those blues catch up. Here’s to YELLOW!
