Take a Quick Break From Your Responsibilities with Aveda

We’ll be the first to admit that sometimes life can get pretty stressful. Trying to balance jobs, school, relationships and family responsibilities (among other things) can be a lot to handle all at once; the perfect components of what we like to call a “stress-cipe”!

Okay, all terrible puns aside, we think it’s important to take some time everyday to just kick back, take some deep breaths and relax. It turns out our friends at Aveda couldn’t agree more!

Here are a few ways Aveda can help you take a quick break from your responsibilities and relax.

The stress-fix aromatherapy body lotion from Aveda is one of our favorite parts of our daily routine. Made with a luxurious combination of organic lavender and clary-sage, the stress-fix lotion is the perfect reminder to stop and smell the roses (or lavender in this case). The best part? All of Aveda’s stress-fix aromatherapy products are clinically proven to help us relax. All it takes is a few deep breathes, and our strain and anxiety seem to just melt away. We’re getting relaxed just writing about this zen-like stress-fix!

Sometimes, however, when the scent of luxurious lavender isn’t enough to calm our tension, we just have to take time to put our stress in perspective.

The 2013 light the way candle from Aveda is the perfect reminder of how fortunate we really are. The light the way candle is part of Aveda’s annual Earth Month Campaign to help raise money for clean water efforts in developing countries.

At only $12, and with 100% of the proceeds going to the Global Greengrants Fund to help fund sustainable water sources for underprivileged communities, this little candle can go a long way! With packaging made from reused beverage bottles and covered in pictures drawn by children from Madagascar, even the candle’s packaging helped remind us about the little ways we can help make a difference.

The light the way candle is a simple way to enjoy a relaxing vanilla and cinnamon fragrance while knowing we helped make a powerful difference in someone’s life.
