Take a breath and try our 5 relaxation rituals!

Try our Stress-Fix rituals to help relax your body and mind!

     

1.) Just Breathe.

Stress is everywhere, and sometimes you need a couple minutes to just breathe and get it all together. Roll some of Aveda's stress-fix concentrate on your wrists, bringing them to your nose, and breathe in! The natural aromas help relax your mind. Do for 10 seconds-10 minutes.

2.) Give your hands a break.

Nowadays everything is all technology. To release tightness caused by typing either on a keyboard your texting, apply some stress-fix body creme or lotion on your hands and forearms and massage with your thumbs. Make sure you massage real well! This will help your hands relax. Do this for 30 seconds - 2 minutes.

3.) Save your neck.

For every 90 minutes of sitting, you should stretch your neck out! Roll some of the stress-fix concentrate over the back of your neck and inhale while lifting your chin, exhale and drop your chin to your chest. Slowly inhale and exhale and slowly move your neck around. Your neck will feel better and (especially during work) a little pick me up! Do for 1 minute.

4.) Treat your feet!

Gently apply some stress-fix body creme or lotion onto your foot and rotate the ankle 3 times each way. Make sure your massaging the arch from heel to toe atleast 3 times. If the area is tender, apply light pressure and massage with your thumb in small circular motions. Dont miss the pads of the toes! When it comes to the heel, use your knuckles. Since its a little tougher you need a little more pressure, but not too much! Repeat on the other foot. Do this for 5 minutes!

5.) Take sanctuary.

Everyone loves to wind down with a warm bath at the end of the day. Take a little vacation from stress with 2 tablespoons of stress-fix soaking salts! Lay back and place a cool damp wash cloth over your eyes. Focus on your breathing and let go of your thoughts. If letting your thoughts go, is a little tough, think of someone you love. Your bodys center of sympathy, compassion and love is all from your heart. Take deep breaths and try to lose yourself in the bath! 

 

Stress-fix by Aveda has an amazing aroma mixture that allows you to let go of your stress. Lavender, lavandin and clary sage are all grown from the "Organic Valley" in the French Alps. Less stress for you, our planet and for all.

Join us to celebrate a brilliant mans life!

            

“It’s important to let go, calm down, and get grounded. We need to listen to ourselves. When one becomes aware that our present-moment thoughts are not productive, one should simply let them go. Change a negative thought to a positive one.” - Horst Rechelbacher 

 

Hello Everyone -
Above is a photograph of an amazing man, the founder of Aveda. Horst Rechelbacher was a big game changer in the beauty industry; he brought earth friendly production, products and even practices to salons all over the world. He was an environmentalist and was his passion grew everyday. Horst admitted to never being a good student, and  that he never made it past the fourth grade. Horst loved working with his hands, and with this skill and passion he became a barbers apprentice at the age of 14. He then started to tour Europe and the Americas in the 1960's - teaching seminars and competed in styling circuits. He opened his own salon, Horst & Friends, in Minneapolis in 1965. That's when he started formulating shampoos in his kitchen sink mixing the best organic herbs and food.
Horst Rechelbacher launched Aveda Corp. in 1978, and never stopped working to perfect products. In 1997 he built Aveda into an international brand known for its eco-friendly practices and lush smelling products. He actually grew many of the ingredients on his 570-acre farm! He fought to make the products USDA-certified organic and safe enough to eat. Horst Rechelbacher left us at the age of 72 due to an illness. Horst Rechelbacher was a passionate, inspirational man and will be missed dearly. We love you.
