SINGAPORE â€“ Hong Kong-based spiritual wellness brand OMSA (Ohm for the Spiritually Awakened) wants you to know that they sell more than just tarot cards.Â
Headed by two ladies who quit their high-flying jobs to start the brand, OMSA curates crystals, candles, essential oils, aromatherapy, healing jewellery, oracle cards and more, from all over the world.Â
For the spiritual seeker looking for the latest in holistic healing, to those who enjoy something extra for the spirit and soul in their self-care routine, you will find gifts to kick-start a year of more self-love, empowerment and clarity.
OMSA was at a pop-up at homegrown creative marketplace Naiise Iconic from 4 – 8 December.Â
â€œWhen people think about spirituality, they would be like, â€˜Are you religious? Are you trying to sell religion?â€™ No, spirituality is actually a relationship with yourself. We want all of our products to be fun and light-hearted which people enjoy using,â€ said co-founder, Valerie Ho.
â€œWe are very inclusive of people from different walks of life, whether you have been looking for a crystal for meditation or you are not into spirituality at all and just want to buy a nice candle for your friend,â€ continued Valerie, who used to be in the finance industry. Â
Working a high-pressure job in the finance industry, she found that she lost time for her passions and hobbies, and life started to be about living to work rather than working to live.Â
She then started on a journey of self-discovery and strength and after experiencing the power of spiritual healing, she wants to assist others find their own empowerment through spirituality.
Her business partner, Coco Chan was a self-professed workaholic who ran her own PR agency and several other businesses for 15 years before she was diagnosed with chronic anxiety. Adamant about not wanting to be prescribed medicine for the long term, she sought out alternative options and discovered the power of essential oils and aromatherapy.Â
Today, she is a certified aromatherapist, mental health advocate and coach, working with clients from starting up their dream business to dealing with their emotional wellbeing.
