Does anyone know any good website for it?

You could make it yourself but some work is needed.
Sodium chlorate can be made fron table salt in an electrolysis cell.
Lots of info on it as its used in pyrotecnics.
Then the sodium chlorate can be used to make Sodium chlorite.

From Wikipedia
Sodium chlorite is derived indirectly from sodium chlorate, NaClO3.
First, sodium chlorate is reduced to chlorine dioxide, typically in a strong acid solution using reducing agents such as sodium sulfite, sulfur dioxide, or hydrochloric acid. This intermediate is then absorbed into a solution of aqueous sodium hydroxide where another reducing agent converts it to sodium chlorite. Even hydrogen peroxide can be used as the reducing agent, giving oxygen gas as its byproduct rather than other inorganic salts or materials that could contaminate the desired product.
