Solay Wellness DBA SO WELL ®was born June 2004 in chicago , IL. I had been working in the organic yoga and wellness industry for several years by that time, always ahead and on the” look out”for new, unique and beautifully made “healing” lifestyle products, and it was that summer of 2004-I discovered my first Salt lamp and I fell in love.
I purchased 10 of them from the original supplier who was importing them from a family of artisans in Pakistan. I did my research, which at the time, there were only a couple suppliers of these lamps and mostly from Poland- which is the birth place of the salt lamp and speleotherapy (cave therapy)
I decided I wanted to share these with the world and so I began building my very first website. Since the lamps were so new, we got alot of attention! and were featured in every magazine. Every body was mesmerized by these lamps and so we grew from a 2 bedroom condo where I personally picked and packed all the orders to a small family run warehouse in Skokie.
About 2 years later (2006) we started creating our very first brands of wellness products using Himalayan salt as the core ingredient because of all of its healing properties, it made sense to create products that I personally needed and knew were safe and effective for myself and others.
We started winning awards for our products and we continued employing small hand crafters to formulate and develop more products that I still use everyday and needed and then I shared with all of our customers. It was a perfect fit! I needed soap, so why buy soap when we can make it? and it continues like this, ensuring that everything we offer you is exceptional ( I have great taste and have tested countless products)
Now 12 years later (2016) we still work with the SAME family of artisans overseas, who ethically source the salt and get a living wage and are taken care off, which means our lamps are still beautiful and unique to the market because our artisans care about the quality of their work.
Is there a difference? ABSOLUTELY. Just like any product, the quality, craftmanship, intention will vary. If the artisans are taken care of, it shows in their work. We don’t put out anything we don’t ABSOLUTELY love and know it is the best available. If you have met me in person-you know this!
Our intentions create our world. At So Well, my intention is to provide you with only the best products-guaranteed. Safe, effective & beautifully hand made products that will help you and your families be SO WELL.
Join us on the journey, and discover how feeling “So Well” can dramatically transform your entire life!
Thank you SO much for your support!
