New stretch target

Any extra money that is raised will be used to really raise awareness of the new product range and put on a self-care wellbeing event where all the products can be enjoyed.


Our aim

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.

The Purpose

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"

Product number 2: 




A blend of unrefined butters and oils specifically designed for dry/itchy problem areas without the use of harsh ingredients or steroids. This product has been trialled by a number of people all with incredibly positive results, it is a soft blend of Calendula an Citrine infused oil, Avocado oil, Shea butter, Mango butter and Cacao butter. It contains no essential oils, smelling naturally of the cacao making it safe for mama's and baby's. This Calendula infused butter is perfect for stings, bites, burns and with it's low melting point, upon contact with your skin will glide over nourishing your skin and soul. Comes in a 60g jar.

"The balm is amazing, it has already improved my psoriasis! Usually things work for a few days then make it 10x worse, but the butter is actually healing it and making it disappear. Can't thank you enough for making it."

Product number 3: 

Our Anahata Bath Ritual - aptly named after the heart chakra as it transforms your bath into the embodiment of self love - connect to your heart and mindfully honour this time to yourself. Containing ingredients such as French pink clay, Dried Honey, Coconut milk, Cacao butter and essential oils of Benzoin (Vanilla), Rosewood and Rose Geranium - It turns the bath water into a foamy, soft pink nourishing heaven. Leaving your skin silky, your mind centred and your heart loved. This is an alternative to bath bombs which contain a lot of fragrance and fillers, it has the same foaming bubble effect with only pure natural ingredients. Comes with Ritual water blessing and Rose Quartz crystal in a 250g jar. 

"I have very sensitive skin and can't use most bath bombs out there, so I was so happy to find a natural version that not only doesn't irritate my skin but actually nourishes it too. On top of that, the scent from this soak is so calming and inviting, I could stay in the bath for hours!"

Product number 4:


Our softening, purifying Sattva Salt scrub which can be used in the bath or shower. It is a beautiful blend of Himalayan salts, Apricot Oil, Moringa Oil, Rosehip extract, Neroli, Sandalwood & Mandarin essential oils. Rose and Calendula petals are ground throughout to massage into your skin lovingly. Accompanied with an exfoliating massage ritual to mindfully explore the scent and move you into a space of awakening. We recommend starting from the feet upwards, moving in towards your heart whilst inhaling the synergy of the essential oils. Comes in a 250g Jar.

"As soon as I open this jar it feels like i've stepped into a spa and all my worries have melted away, the oils don't feel greasy and i'm left with the scent lingering on my skin for hours after! A beautiful product."

Each product will have its own affirmation that accompanies it on the packaging, along with being infused with reiki and sanskrit mantras. They are all free from preservatives, parabens, SLS, and any artificial fragrances.
