Spiritual Oils will include Marriage Equality Oils

Spiritual Oils will include Marriage Equality Oils

Eye of Horus is thrilled to announce that it will add three Marriage Blessing oils to the new line of Spiritual Oils if our Indiegogo campaign gets funded.

Love is the Law

Love is the Law in Minnesota

Love is the Law, Love under Will, is a phrase known by many in the magickal community. Love is the Law was also a song by The Suburbs which became an anthem for people fighting for marriage equality. Now Love really is the law in Minnesota. Love knows no gender. For millenia, Native populations have recognized same sex couples as part of their culture, and refer to some people as Two-Spirits. They were often the healers, ceremonial leaders and shamans, and their unique identity was regarded as a gift. They were even believed to be especially lucky in love among the Lakota, Mohave, Crow Cheyenne and others.

So, as part of our new line of Spiritual Oils that we’re launching, we are blending three marriage blessing oils, specifically formulated for different genders (or different gender identities). This specificity of intent, the unique energies between people, and the need to honor relationship in ritual is one of the big reasons we are creating this unique line of oils.

We specifically plan to have these oils ready by August 1st, the first day same-sex couples can legally marry in Minnesota. Please note that we are not just jumping on a band-wagon, but we are following the synchronicity in spirit of this momentous time. Our Indiegogo launch was on May 9th, specifically timed for the new moon. What we didn’t, and couldn’t know ahead of time, was on that same day, the Minnesota House passed the bill for marriage equality.  Our attention was divided between our fundraising campaign and the drama at the capital because Eye of Horus owners Thraicie and Jane had a very personal stake in the outcome.

They were handfasted in June of 2005, and plan on making it legal August 1st. They will be using the marriage blessing oil as part of their ceremony, and feel blessed to be able to offer such a product to other couples, as well. But we need people to contribute to the campaign so we can afford to create these and other spiritual oils.

Indiegogo pledges start at $10. You can pre-order oil sets via the Indiegogo Eye of Horus page. In addition to the Marriage blessing oils, Eye of Horus is planning Lunar blends, and Zodiac Oils. There are a number of other oils on our wish list, and supporters will vote on what oils they want for their starter sets. Or if you don’t need oils, discount coupons, gift certificates and other options are available.

Together, we can make a difference. Please click here to see what it’s all about, and share!

Eye of Horus Spiritual Oils – Crowdfunding with Indiegogo

Eye of Horus Spiritual Oils – Crowdfunding with Indiegogo

Eye of Horus just launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund a new store line of Spiritual Oils. Starting with May’s New Moon in Taurus, and running through June’s Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn, you can get a gift certificate, pre-order oils, get an Astrology Chart, and even your own custom Zodiac oil blend based on your chart. Of course, we also accept donations in any amount, even as little as $1. Get all the details on Perks>

In 2010, we moved to a larger space which allowed us to offer more intuitive readings, Reiki Healing, Rituals, Concerts, Workshops and Discussions. We even have a labyrinth and for people to walk year round! All of this has been great, and we’ve been blessed daily in our new location, but like everyone, it’s been a tough few years. Even as many large businesses have rebounded, small ones are struggling. We’ve lost a couple of our oil suppliers due to this climate, and we’ve felt the pinch as well. But we’re rolling up our sleeves and doing something about it.

We’re also asking for your feedback.  So comment on this article, or sign up for our newsletter. We’re going to be polling you about which oils to create first, and letting you know about Spiritual Salons to test out the different formulas.

Why are we Crowdfunding ?

We need both funding and feedback to create a line of oils which will enhance your spiritual practice.

Why Oils?

We should ask you that, assuming you are our customer. We’ve seen a 16% increase in oil sales in the first quarter of 2013 vs the last quarter of 2012. Our store sales over all have remained flat. So we are focusing on an area of high demand as a focus for our continued growth.

Part of that 16% increase was adding the Lucky Mojo line of Conjure oils, and we are committed to carrying them long-term.

Spirit-oil-smallBut we’ve had requests for other oils.  There is a need for Meditation, Yoga, Chakra, Orisha, Zodiac, Planetary, Deity, Moon, Sabbat, and even Norse and other Ritual and Aromatherapy oils.  By creating our own line of oils, Eye of Horus can:

  • Provide the types of oils you need
  • Ensure a more stable source of our purpose oils
  • Expand the variety of essential and carrier oils we carry for people who want to blend their own

Eye of Horus wants to to be more responsive to your needs, establish ourselves as a trusted source for oils, and have more options for you to choose from. Banks don’t give micro-loans for anything like this, but now we can bypass the bank and go direct to the people to determine it’s a good idea with our Spiritual Oil crowdfunding campaign.

Why Now?

One big reason is to get the word out about what we’re doing, but the other is to connect with our clients and be sure we provide exactly what they are looking for.

So we will be asking for feedback from our supporters throughout this campaign to help guide us.

Thraicie and Jane also did a Tarot reading on how we would finance our growth, because we don’t have 8K on hand. The cards were clear – ask for community support. So we’re asking.

Will you help us grow and thrive by supporting the Eye of Horus signature line of spiritual oils and products?

Visit the Eye of Horus Indiegogo campaign site  There’s a lot more information there, and even if you don’t plan to contribute, you can support us by using social media from the site to like us and spread the word.

Thanks!

About that Shoestring Budget

We thought about just asking for enough to formulate the oils, but we want you to have the best experience when browsing, and we want our oils backstock all in one place, rather than, hmm… it’s a bit embarrassing… on top of a printer.

Oils ready for mixing

Okay, it was a temporary place to put oils when unpacking, but it really got us to envision something different. It would also be much better Feng Shui if we created more dedicated space. We just need a little help to get there.

We have a Tumbled Stone center, a Tarot center, a mojo herb center, and it’s time for an essential and fragrance oils center. Because we can do better and we want to create a magical experience for you, too!

Please comment and share this post! Better yet, go check out all the details at our Spiritual Oils Fundraising site on IndieGoGo!  We’re going to be posting videos, pictures of our progress and more.
