Over the years I have witnessed first-hand the many benefits that natural products and complementary health practices have for people.
It began in my teens when I started using herbal-based skin care ranges. Then came the amazing results achieved using homeopathy, natural creams, and specialised diets to treat my son’s eczema.
This led to a passion for a chemical-free home, and a website called kind2kids selling natural and chemical-free products (many of which are now in supermarkets & pharmacies).
I also have a passion for health systems that treat the whole person and have a Diploma in Homeopathy and a Post Graduate Certificate in Acupuncture, specialising in Women's Health.
OMni is the result of my lifelong journey with natural products. It represents my desire to produce a skincare range that is what it says on the label … 100% natural, free from chemicals and preservatives, that truly nourishes your skin.
OMni’s first products were a gentle exfoliating lip polish and deliciously smooth lip nourish made from natural ingredients and essential oils. In 2019 I added a tinted nourish I called "blush" that works with natural skin tones. Then I realised customers were using OMni in other ways ... on their cheeks, brows, cuticles and more.
So in early 2020 I set about re-formulating the original products, extended the range to include radiant zinc in three colours, and re-packaged them in beautiful small frosted glass pots so customers could see what they were buying.
But the re-launch was brought to a halt by COVID-19. Lockdown, as for many of us, was a time of reflection and an uncertain future. I had to seriously consider my options ... commit uncertain resources into my small business or put my dreams aside,
After a lot of soul searching I decided I just couldn't let my dreams go. It feels more important to me than ever to ensure I follow my heart, and set that example to my son that if you want something enough you can make it happen.
I am so in love with the new OMni range ... these gorgeous and versatile little pots of joy have become a daily ritual for me. I hope they'll become one of yours too!
