Komega6, a holistic health startup out of Bryan, Texas has been in business for a little over 3 years. Unique from other essential oil brands, Komega6 looks to buck the trend by producing a line of blended essential oil formulas combined with CBD enriching anti-inflammatory & aromatherapeutic uses for on-the-go via a roll-on topical application. Originally a hobbyist project, the founder of Komega6, Kevin Griste, and his 4-year-old daughter Jaylee, began growing herbs and fiber-rich plants in their garden to experiment with. He began to distill and cold press herbs to cultivate raw oils and would mix these essential oils with different carrier oils and would ship them to friends and family to try. After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from users he decided to launch a small health and beauty business consisting of essential oils, marking the beginning of komega6
Since then, the small team has seen the brands' sales momentum steadily grow on large online retailers such as Amazon, Zulily, Groupon & Walmart.com — but this growth has come with growing pains. "We have received great feedback from our customers about our scents, and the reviews have been positive. We have a strong product concept leveraging all-natural essential oils in a topical application for various health and lifestyle purposes, but given the feedback, we felt the formulas needed some minor revisions. I believe we have really improved our customer experience of this new extension with the inclusion of CBD oil", says Komega6 co-owner and CMO, Taylor Knox.
He then goes on to explain "We have managed to generate sales and maintain a stable business these past few years, our raw material and component order volumes have been minimal since we are entirely self-funded by sales". This week Komega6 launched a crowdfunding campaign in support of its new line of topically applied scents with transparent formulas featuring only essential oils, argan oil, coconut oil and CBD from industrial hemp seed.
The crowdfunding campaign features a variety of backers perks ranging from $20 for a 10ml bottle of choice scent, to even $1000 for a lifetime supply; backers can take advantage of deep discounts in the form of crowdfunding pre-sales, including a Tee shirt & some freebies of their recently self-launched Bath Ice line.
With backers support, and funding goal reached, Komega6 expects to begin shipment of the new line of essential oils by November 2018.
