The Gift of Wellness is Timeless.
This is why I’m so excited to release my first ever buying guide! This year, those on my gift list are receiving gifts of wellness and self-care. The seeds of self-care might get planted if I gift the tools to do the planting!!!
As a bonus, my list is 100% eco-friendly, sustainable, and vegan so this guide is good for the animals, good for the planet, and good for your health.
Let’s take a look inside the guide…
OK, so let’s talk Food.

Maybe you want to try your hand at growing your own food but lack outdoor space. No yard? No desire to dig in the dirt? No idea what’s a weed and what’s a plant? No problem! Introducing the Tower Garden, a revolutionary way to grow your own fruits and veggies almost anywhere year-round and without soil! We’re talking about Aeroponics here: aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment rather than soil. Aeroponic systems use water, liquid nutrients and a soilless growing medium to quickly and efficiently grow your food, increasing yield by 30%, using as little as 2% of the water as traditional gardens, and growing plants 3 times faster. Get an introduction to the aeroponics growing method and Tower Garden here.

So Well introduces Himalayan Salt into your décor, kitchen, and bath. Fair trade, handmade Himalayan crystal salt lamps are a beautiful way to enhance your environment and enjoy a pleasing soft, warm glow in any room of your home or office. Equal parts home décor and wellness tool, this Himalayan salt lamp (made from 250 million-year-old ancient salt crystal) emits negative ions which naturally recharge the air to reduce electromagnetic waves and reduce allergens.
No run-of-the-mill salt lamp will do during the holidays. Let So Well’s Limited Edition Amber Salt Lamp Angel light up your room ($49.90). For students or the office, check out the Amber Himalayan Salt Lamp USB Globe ($19.95).
