While Om does most of her ongoing herbal prescribing in conjunction with her counselling, coaching and therapy consults, anyone seeking herbal help to address a medical problem is encouraged to start here, with the Herbal Medicine consult.
Omanisa dedicates these consults to the gathering of your medical case history, interviewing you about your past, your family medical history and your symptoms. She will ask you what makes your condition worse, and what makes it better, and she will need to know about any other medical conditions or medications you are taking. All of this information helps Om create a herbal prescription best suited to your needs. Quite often, Om also provides some naturopathic health education, self-care coaching and homework.
Follow-up consults can be shorter 30min sessions to check on progress and tweak the blend as needed. Alternatively, clients can opt to switch over to the Aura Therapy consults. We’ll still check on your progress, tweak as needed and restock you, but the bulk of these longer sessions will focus on counselling, therapy, and more in-depth coaching. Because our physical health is strongly influenced and affected by our mental, emotional, social and spiritual health, the development of mindfulness, self-awareness, emotional self-regulation and stress-management skills can make all the difference when it comes to recovering our health and preventing relapses, or improving your management of chronic health conditions for better quality of life.
OM'S HERBAL HERITAGE
Omanisa was raised on naturopathic principles with healthy wholefoods and a food-as-medicine philosophy by her mother Shell who was inspired by Dorothy Hall, one of Australia’s most famous naturopaths. Growing up in Central Australia, Om was raised by elders who had a great love for Nature and a special connection with plants.
Om’s grandma Anne was the first female residential doctor in central Australia. In her spare time, Anne loved exploring the outback with her photographer husband Victor and her botanist brother Peter, photographing wildflowers. When she retired from medicine, she wrote a botanical book called “Wildflowers and Plants of Inland Australia”, with help from her brother Peter who established the plant walks and the herbarium at Uluru-KataTjuta, and was like a father to Omanisa during her childhood. After Anne died, Omanisa became the publisher for her wildflower book, and is currently working on a revised edition, along with a biography about her elders.
In the late 1990’s, while still a naturopathic student, Omanisa was taken under the wing of a flower-essence practitioner named Mhyrlyn, who came from a long line of welsh gypsies. Mhyrlyn taught Omanisa a no-pick psychic technique for making flower essences. Omanisa now travels throughout Australia searching for wildflowers, communing with them and learning directly from the flower-spirits themselves what it is they wish to help humanity with.

AURA SPRAYS & HERBAL CHAKRA TONICS
Aside from her extensive collection of Australia native wildflower essences, Om also makes her own gem elixirs and colour remedies, blending these with the flower essences to create Aura Sprays. She has 9 specific formulations she prescribes along with herbal chakra tonics and matching meditations. She also creates tailored blends for customers during consultations, and a has special range of “spirit-blends” that compliment her Oracle Card range.
Om has spent years learning about the spiritual properties and actions of herbal medicine and the correct doses needed to access these properties. This has resulted in Om’s range of Herbal Chakra Kits which combine liquid herbs with essences from Omanisa’s unique Australian wildflower range. The kits contain an Aura Spray, Chakra Tonic and the accompanying meditations. A course of treatment usually involves using each remedy at least once daily preferably just before listening to one of the prescribed meditations.
