Sol y Mar is an essential oils blends line created in 2020 by Elisa Dal Sasso. She has been using essential oils for a long time and a few years ago, started looking more into it, reading about aromatherapy and trying to find a natural way to support her health issues. A few months later Elisa attended two workshops to learn how to mix essential oils.
During her last trip abroad, she took all her oils with her for everyday use and surprisingly all the people around started wanting to know more about it, asked if she could make them some blends too. During that time, she was living abroad for 6 months. Therefore, managed to find some containers, local and very good quality oils and started selling blends.
Back in Switzerland she wanted to continue helping people through natural medicine and aromatherapy so created a logo and started the branding on Instagram for those who might be interested in it and even just to spread the power of plants and essential oils.
Sustainability to Elisa, is working with local brands, avoiding unnecessary packaging, being conscious with the materials used and trying to make a good impact on the planet.
She says; "I really try to get my material and all my oils in Switzerland or countries very close to it. I also decided to avoid plastic and I choose to use glass containers".
«You never know if you don't try it.»
When she started Sol y Mar, Elisa had two things in mind:
"Respecting my values and ethics while doing something I love". To her it was really important to work with high quality oils and sustainable brands. Furthermore, she always tries to support local brands.
After a few years of traveling around the world, Elisa discovered her passion for alternative medicine and yoga. She's now a yoga teacher and is hoping to get a Bachelor degree in Physiotherapy.
She loves everything around natural medicine, movement and plant-based eating/living.
