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.
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.
But 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.
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?

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.
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!
