Best Himalayan Salt Lamp
So Well began their journey of bringing high-quality Himalayan salt lamps to the market in 2004. They offer a wide variety of unique lamp styles, along with other specialty, hard-to-find, salt therapy products. So Well is Fair Trade certified and is dedicated to their lamps always being crafted by artisans in respectful and safe working environments. Who doesn’t like knowing that one’s money is going toward a quality product and fair wages, as opposed to greedy, inhumane companies taking advantage of sweatshops to churn out cheap products, which is the case for the vast majority of Himalayan salt lamp manufacturers.
So Well is able to keep their focus of quality and fairness by foregoing the “big box” store and low-price mega-markets. Instead, they make it a priority to have their products carried by boutique stores and small business that are well curated and focused on their customer service and offering unique products. So Well has made it a priority to focus on quality, and they have made it a point to have partnerships with retailers that do the same.
Each of their salt lamps are designed in a way to be well balanced and secure on their hardwood bases. Many other salt lamps tend to be precariously constructed, and you often do not know what you will get, especially when ordering online.
As seen in the video above, So Well uses durable dimmer switches, which make a big difference in the life span of your lamp. Again, the majority of other salt light manufacturers often do not have a dimmer switch at all, or are cheaply made. So Well's dimmer switches, on the other hand, are top quality and offer a wide range of lighting control to give you the flexibility to set the mood how you see fit.
There is a large range of Himalayan salt products that So Well offers beyond lamps, including therapeutic items like Salt Inhalers, Neti Pots, and Sole (salt water therapy) Kits. They also have a range of bath and personal care items that include really unique, helpful items like Deodorant Powder, Deodorant Stones, Massage Stones, Tooth Powders, and First Aid Salves. They even have super niche items like Himalayan Salt Water Hot Tub Chlorinator Kits, Fruit and Veggie Wash, and culinary Salt Slabs. It isn’t surprising that world renowned spas and hotels like the Ritz Carlton and the Grand Geneva often feature So Well products.
So Well’s showstoppers continue to be their Himalayan Salt Lamps. They have several different colors and design styles that I’ll describe below. But I’d like to be sure to mention that each different color featured by So well are the naturally occurring hue of that specific crystal. You may notice that some low-quality online dealers offer “candy” like colors that are completely artificially created salt crystals, instead of mined aged crystal that have resulted from the pressure of the earth over thousands of years. Our advice: Stick to what is natural, and don’t fall for imposters.
Amber Himalayan Salt Lamp
For most people, when they think of a salt light, if they are familiar with them in the first place, they are picturing the classic peachy, amber toned oblong, organic-obelisk shaped salt crystal. These emit a deliciously warm and soothing light that is almost reminiscent of what light would have looked like while we were tucked safely in our mother’s wombs. So Well produces this classic in five different size variations.
