Commenting on the launch, The Wellness Pod Founder Emma Mulrooney said:
“The Wellness Pod was created in 2017 by an idea I put on paper whilst doing an entrepreneur course called “Soulpreneurs” in Australia where I was living at the time. I was recovering from a major illness and although fitness had always been part of my life, I started to look at other areas that would assist in my healing and help bring the wellness of life to others.
Prior to this, I had completed studies in wellness coaching, nutrition and pilates and worked in Sydney for corporate wellbeing companies and fitness studios (as well as recruitment corporate roles prior). After my recovery I started a degree in Naturopathy and started to plan the Wellness Pod. I aspired to have well-being easily obtainable across a modern platform with products for our home, or body, beauty and movement.
The Wellness Pod’s USP is that all our products are vegan, toxin free and organic. Many of our selected products have also won awards. We also have Wellness Pod custom created fitness journals, movement mats and candles to start a wellness regime at home. We have some new products ready to land and others which sold out fast coming back in store.
Our website aims to inspire others to take small steps every day to be healthier, kinder to themselves and kinder to the planet. Our packaging boxes are custom designed with FSR recycled cardboard with an eco-badge and each box has an affirmation. The aim is to deliver happiness to people’s homes by promoting self-care and wellness to people’s homes this year.
We launched 8 weeks ago now and have been delighted to see repeat customers and this weekend was special , sending out our mums wellness self-care boxes with some lovely feedback in return and happy mums.
I returned to Sligo nearly 3 years ago and love the outdoors , slower pace of life and community feel. On returning to Sligo it was so great to see the growing wellness community. I love to run and there are so many beautiful trails here. It will be lovely to see all the fitness and yoga studios open their doors again and all the healthy culinary eateries , as we raise Sligo’s profile as a wellness corner of the west.”
