We are looking for a total of £2000 to fund the release of 4 new products, through pre-orders. Currently we have 1 product for sale which is our magnesium oil, but we would love to be able to raise enough funds to grow our range of natural healing products and help a wider community of people.
In the UK it is estimated that there are 6 million people currently living with anxiety disorders, whilst approximately 3 million of these people will primarily be suffering from depression too. In 2018 a study found that within the previous 12 month period, 74% of Adults reported that at some point in that time they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. Another study found that:
- 59% of UK adults experience work related stress
- 46% of UK adults experience family related stress and
- 45% of UK adults experience money related stress.
Effects of long term stress can manifest themselves in many ways but as an example:
- 65% of people experience sleep loss as a result of stress
- 48% experience anxiety as a direct result.
As a nation we are generally out of sync with nature, relying more and more on technology, spending more time on our phones and social media whilst lacking a solid foundation for mindful self care. Although there has been an incredible self care movement within the past year, we still have a long way to go.
This is where our project comes in. We are funding for the release of 4 new products, all designed with mindfulness and self care at the heart. They are all designed to be used when you need a little helping hand, to allow you to step into a heart centred space or as a form of relief from the stress around you. Unfortunately we can’t prevent stressful situations from arising, but we hope we can be something to turn too in those moments to help you find your centre again.
About Om Shanti Alchemy
At the moment we are the only company in the UK that offers products which are natural, sustainably sourced and infused with the sacred frequencies of sanskrit mantras, reiki energy and sacred geometry. We take a combination of these elements along with our knowledge of mindfulness, aromatherapy, herbalism, meditation and self care which allows us to believe our products can really help improve your wellbeing whilst nourishing and soothing your soul - but we can only do this if we have your help! By backing our project campaign you will have the first chance to get your hands on all four of our brand new products, along with helping us achieve our vision and joining us on this journey!
How it all started
I Started Om Shanti Alchemy when I was searching for something in a time of crisis that I could personally reach for when my mental health took a turn for the worst. After frequently dealing with anxiety, panic attacks and dissociation I propelled myself onto a path of natural recovery and made self care, along with self love and meditation my highest priority.
I trained in Reiki which made a dramatic difference to my wellbeing, started training in Aromatherapy and delving into the power of nature and natural healing. I have been creating products for friends and family for years, along with providing healing in the forms of reiki, writing meditations, smudging ceremonies and also creating a space for those around me to feel held an supported which I believe has all led me up to now.
Following on from our campaign we hope to continue to challenge mental health stigma by being a voice, opening conversations on social media relating to body image, vulnerability and to partner with a range of companies linked to breaking the stigma on mental health. We are currently stocked in Jolt - the shop of designs in mind which is a studio of adults living with mental health challenges.
What we are Crowdfunding for:
At the moment we currently have 1 product for sale, but we have 4 formulations ready and waiting to be released. Each product requires £500 for materials, testing and certification, packaging and expanding brand awareness. Pledging to our project would be a pre-order for one/many/all of our products, plus there are a few extra little gifts that will be thrown in based on the banding you opt for too!
Product number 1:
This is a Rose flower vibrational remedy - much in the same way that Dr Bachs Rescue Remedy is used today, you place a few drops of the liquid under your tongue whenever you feel your heart needs a little soothing or uplifting, or into your glass of water. This vibrational remedy is inspired by Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. It contains the energy signature of the rose flower and is used as a heart opener - allowing feelings of compassionate love to fulfil your life and soften the heart. Using this is a daily act of unrequited self-love. It is a gentle calming remedy to use when panic, fear or anxiety wraps around your heart and is preserved traditionally in brandy. Comes in a 30ml bottle.
"I started using the Aphrodite Rose Remedy when I was going through quite a difficult time in my life, during a break up. I was surprised to notice how much calmer i felt after a few days of using it consistently, and how i was approaching my life events with a much more open heart as apposed to in fear like i had previously"
