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.
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. You can read more about my journey with skin care in our News & Articles section.
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 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.
Just recently some amazing friends have joined me on the OMni journey. I feel incredibly lucky to have them on board and even more excited about the potential of the brand and its future.
I am so in love with the 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!

OMni – meaning ‘all, everything, everywhere, without limits’
OM – part of the iconography found in ancient and medieval era manuscripts, temples, monasteries and spiritual retreats in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism : meanings include essence of life, self-knowledge, entirety of the universe, truth, divine, essence of breath, life, everything that exists, and more…
ni – the Japanese particle (ni) used to indicate purpose e.g. the purpose for going somewhere
Ensō circle - a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create : symbolises absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and mu (the void); characterised by a minimalism born of Japanese aesthetics.
Even though the enso circle is no longer a visible part of the brand, it is still intrinsic in the design and ethos that underpins OMni.
Our beautiful logo and label designs are the product of my dear friend Andrea Keast … I couldn’t have done it without you! For all your designs, contact Andrea at firstname.lastname@example.org.
