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
MENTION : “WINTERLOVE” in your checkout memo through etsy and receive a FREE patchouli and lavender vegan soap slice!

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!

Valentines – The Stats and A Rosey Collab Offer

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

So naturally this is the time of year to consider that little romantic holiday. Some suggest it was invented by hallmark to sell cards, but there is obviously a lineage and lore associating in so many ways to different countries and cultures, dating back hundreds of year all over the world for St. Valentines Day. I got a little curious and decided to go on a little internet book report style scavenger hunt. Here are some totally serious and maybe a few BS stats I found from sources that range from CNN to random Joe Smith blogger!

The Stats –

-More than 35 Million Heart Shaped Boxes of Chocolate Will Be Sold For Valentines Day

-Over 110 Million Roses Will be Sold Over the 3 Days That Valentines Day Falls

-Women Purchase 85% of All Valentines

-3% of Pet Owners Will Treat Their Pets On Valentines Day

-In the USA – 65% of Men Do Not Make Valentine’s Day Plans in Advance

– 21 % of Consumers Will Spend $4.8 Billion on Jewelry This Year

– 60% of Valentines Given Are To Family While 20% are Given to Teachers (The Third Highest Group)

-One Third of Valentines Consumers Will Purchase Gifts for Loved Ones From Tablets

-2 Billion Dollars Will be Spent On Candy This Year

-50 Million Dollars Will Be Spend On Jewelry This Year

Speaking such expenditures a few of my fellow conscious energy warriors have pitched in to provide a group special for our shops collectively!

Headed to my marketing job this am - woke up with intense anxiety. Had to take a breather and also a minute with these wonderful flower essences and Hawaiian orchid necklace from @honestowlherbal .

Natural Skincare From The Big Island – Holistic Spotlight

A lot of the partnerships and collaborations I choose to do come from a purely synergistic place. For one reason or the next, people are brought into view for me and we connect. Two of those people just recently happened to be based on the Big Island in Hawaii. Ironically – the timing is incredible because it is the anniversary of when something deep in my core was activated on the Big Island. My husband and I hiked a now too dangerous part of Kalapana with an experienced tour crew. The hike was grueling but we witnessed splendor in geomantic forms. Hawaii has a lot of that – the magic of their special soil and offerings to be had from that earth is very inspiring and cosmic.

I recieved some oils from VETIVER FARMS HAWAII (VFH). What Can I say about the freshness and pure seduction of such incredible earth essences captured so delicately? Plant magic is a delciate art – you have to love this to produce such miracles. Their oils are miracles.

I like to use essential oils on a diffusing bracelet made by my friend Rebbecah at Seed Essentials. She hand carves diffusing ceramic into natural seed like shapes and uses polished mala style gemstones and woods in harmony. I requested this piece to be in all black transformative and grounding stones. It has Jet, Lava, Onyx and Obsidian. Using VFH oils with this bracelet has been a dream for me. Though the oils are diluted in care so you can apply them directly to the body which is nice; I am very sensitive to these types of EO’s so the bracelet is a nice alternative for me vs. skin. Also  I’ve used this bracelet to help my little one get the benefits of these oils. He has a cold as we speak and I’ll drop VFH eucalyptus on the bracelet and ask him to smell it, carefully. He enjoys it and it helps to open up passageways!

The ?universe has a way of telling you that you are on the right path. Today 3 years ago on my birthday I climbed a volcano and touched lava with a stick on the big island in Hawaii. It awakened my spirit in a way nothing else but giving birth had done since. It was a very tough hike and since the tour service has had to close due to dangerous conditions. Today I received this beautiful package from @vetiver_farms_hawaii with three incredible oils I can smell right through each box. I've been wearing this grounding bracelet from @seedessentials with a diffuser bead for a few weeks now and am beyond excited to use them together and in some of our shop yummies! ✨ thank you for such a treat!! Aaaand impeccable timing I must say! ? These Jade Agate polished bangles are the only two I have left in my etsy shop in jade (a few customers have asked) ✨✌️ Spoon ring by @mal_wingostarrjewelry ✨??#saturday #bigisland #essentialoils #thatgoodgood #aromatherapy #vetiverfarmshawaii

OILS BY VETIVER FARMS HAWAII , DIFFUSING BRACLET BY SEEDESSENTIALS, SPOON RING BY WINGOSTARR JEWELRY

I love to blend Vetiver Farm’s Eucalyptus with their Vetiver. It’s really high time that people open up to the powers of the olgfactory process (the reactionary system produced from our sense of scent) ! It is the most direct route to our nervous system. Something about Vetiver has called to me a lot lately. It supports sleep for starters, and has a unisex appeal. I personally resonate with deeper, rounder tones vs. sweet scents. It’s also very grounding, calming, sensual and tunes your root chakric system. Eucalyptus is a powerhouse oil and has those invigorating and awakening properties as well. Together, for me,  it’s a motivator and anxiety buster. The quality of the Vetiver Farms Hawaii’s products is the actual vigor of the island captured in a bottle. Check out their instagram feed to see how neat the process of growing this plant is! @Vetiver_farms_hawaii

Making ✨magic✨ with the help of @vetiver_farms_hawaii ? so in love with the freshness and quality of their oils!!! Just a few drops in this clay milk facial mask to open passages and pores! #skincare #shopsmall #vetiverfarmshawaii #detox #health #fitness #vitality #bybethkaya

VETIVER FARMS HAWAII – EUCALYPTUS OIL BEING USED IN BK SCRUB

I also had the pleasure of mingling with another beautiful herbalist from the big island as well – Shawn from Honest Owl Herbal Apothecary (OHA). She sent me so many incredible things. She captures the gentle vibration of herbs and flowers in moon drenched waters and butters. Incredible. Absolutely. Every inch of these products has love from the notes to the packaging and preperation. I used her Tulsi and Sandalwood Hair Conditioner tonight and truly was just crying about how much my textured hair wants to dread. It’s crispy and needed the clarifying lift this gentle aromatic product lended.  This spray soothed it, softened it and didn’t leave it oily like other products on the market! I’ve taken her flower essences in times of anxiety along with my essential oils from VFH and can delightfully and honestly say – both are aiding me right now.

Headed to my marketing job this am - woke up with intense anxiety. Had to take a breather and also a minute with these wonderful flower essences and Hawaiian orchid necklace from @honestowlherbal .

HONEST OWL APOTHECARY FLOWER ESSENCE AND ORCHID NECKLACE. ECLIPSE NECKLACE BY EMMY EFF DESIGNS

The “innercalm” balm from HOA – is such a dream too. I put it ALL over me tonight after the shower. It feels so emollient like a hug. The scent is calming and warm, there is surely some ancient magic inside of this balm. Incredible. I put some on my feet and then some socks over top and it was like a miracle going on in there. So awesome! Thank you both!

AUCTION # 3 – CLICK HERE TO VIEW AND BID 

Thank you so much for everyone sharing and raising this amazing buzz about a very important cause and for a very important ambassador of that cause! While discussing some of the media I work with – I was mentioning that some of the things I work with are actually pieces that are discarded by other artists in creation of their work. The orgone piece in this auction has clippings of metals from artists Wingostarr Jewelry, Emmy Eff Designs and Shinechaser jewelry. All it takes to make orgone is metal and quartz – so why throw it away if I can use it to make something beautiful? That connected me with this purpose because organ donation is essentially that – upcycling – with parts for people! It’s not waste – it can give someone or something else, life again. Many blessings to the many people supporting this project, every person supporting this deserves a major pat on the back. We’ve officially made some waves and got people thinking about it and acting about it! XOBK

Happy Winter Solstice!!!!!

Happy to have passed the gifting rush “hump” and move towards this big charity auction I’ve been hyping for the last month. So here is how it will work – I have collected AMAZING – AMAAAAAZING submissions from kind hearted businesses and artists for the sole purpose of auctioning them off so the proceeds can benefit Mrs. Gwendolyn Westlund – and her fund set up to offset the ongoing costs associated with her heart transplant and medical expenses for a decade of fighting to live. She fought cancer and beat it, but it cost her heart, lucky for her – she was able to get a new-to-her heart, not everyone receives that precious second lease on life before it’s too late. The aim of this auction is to drum up general awareness for that alone and also to generate a little boost for my fighter here, in the spirit of giving and receiving! These are great gifts for yourself or someone you love! Everything in these auctions have the same intention – to bring peace, comfort in your heart and healing.
