Lavender Essential Oil is known for its penetrating, herbaceous, sweet, floral, clean fragrance that also blends very well with other oils. A versatile oil, it’s excellent oil for burns and muscular complaints. It’s often used on insect bites or other skin irritations, and is known to be mild on the skin. Perfect for use in the bath, massage, your diffuser, skin/hair care, inhalation, lotions, perfumes, and flower water.
Packaging: To preserve and maintain their beneficial properties for years, our essential oil blends are packaged in light resistant, dark glass amber bottles. The 1/3 oz size comes with a fitted dropper insert that allows a small amount of product to be dispensed, and a tamper-evident child-resistant lid. These elegant bottles are the perfect way to protect light-sensitive liquids, like essential oils, because the dark amber glass helps prevent light degradation.
Storage: Best stored away from light and heat. If stored properly, essential oil blends will maintain their maximum beneficial properties for many years, with a minimum 5 year shelf life.
Warning: Keep out of reach of children. Dilute properly. Not for internal use. Keep away from eyes & mucous membranes. Not to be used during pregnancy or while nursing. Avoid direct sunlight.

What’s the big deal about Fair Trade? We actually get this question a lot! If you look up the definition of Fair Trade, you will find results referring to a social movement whose stated goal is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions while promoting sustainability. But to us, Fair Trade is that and so much more!
Fair Trade ensures that producers receive fair market prices, are free from labor abuses and use sustainable growing and production methods. In a world where corporate profits rule these crafters and farmers are often exploited, creating a cycle of poverty and environmental degradation. Fair Trade can break that cycle, creating better lives, stronger communities and a healthier environment. We are dedicated to Fair Trade, and use suppliers dedicated to Fair Trade and sustainability.
We import all of our salt products through a long-term direct relationship that creates mutual accountability. Our partners observe fair trade principles that include 25% greater than average wages, human rights such as rest breaks, chilled water, protective clothing, safe working environments and medical care. You can be assured that our talented craftsmen are respected and cared for as valuable members of the So Well team. We do not supply big box stores and only work with customers who value high quality, uniqueness and Fair Trade.
A primary component of trade is the small premium that buyers of fair trade goods pay as part of their purchase price for socially responsible products. An important factor of the fair trade social premium is that the producers decide where and how it is spent. In our case, our production partners use it to raise wages, create a safe working environment and offer important benefits. Additionally, our ingredients are harvested sustainably and we use 100% reusable, recyclable and eco-friendly packaging.

So Well offers fair trade Himalayan salt lamps and tea light holders specifically designed for aromatherapy use. These include glass diffuser plates. For use with So Well aromatherapy products, add water or a simple carrier oil to the glass diffusing dish, and then add your favorite essential oils. Leaving this oil for roughly 4-6 hours will fully diffuse the scent. Don’t forget to remove the glass plate when oils are not being used, in order to avoid accidental damage to the diffuser plate.
You may also use our lamps to diffuse by adding essential oils, mixed with a carrier oil or not, directly to the surface of the heated salt lamp. Go slow. See how much will give you the best performance and least possibility of spilling by starting off with a few drops.
You may clean your salt lamp with a damp cloth. Wiping with a non-toxic degreaser to cut oil residue will not harm the lamp. Examples include a damp cloth with a mild mixture of simple green solution on it. Again, go slow, and see if your wiping / cleaning process is effective with a small amount and light wiping, before adding more solution or water to your cloth, or increasing your wiping pressure.
