Aromatherapy and botanical research provide the foundations for the products, with the scent being just as important as the efficacy of the formulas. Products such as the Stress Fix Bathing Salts contain relaxing Lavender and Clary Sage to relieve anxiety and promote sleep, while the comforting aromas of Caribbean Lime, Amyris and Bay Leaf within the Caribbean Therapy Body Lotion envelope you in the warmth of the tropics and help to evoke a feeling of contentment. If you've ever experienced an Aveda hair treatment, then you'll know about the oils that you're asked to sniff and choose ahead of your head massage; the fragrance you pick is supposed to say something about your current mood and is used to either relax or revive the senses. Although this is an incredibly simple concept, its inclusion really ensures you have a sensual and all-encompassing experience: something Aveda is proud to offer.
Aveda have also made a 'Green Ingredient Promise', continually striving to increase their use of naturally derived ingredients and avoiding detrimental or damaging processing processes. Now more than 90% of their essential oils and 89% of raw herbal ingredients are certified organic, making them a pioneer in the green cosmetics world. Although Aveda are more well established for their hair care products (I can recommend their Rosemary Mint, which really helps to wake you up!) they also have an extensive range of body products, cleansers and bath time treats. With nearly 7000 salons and spas world wide that share Aveda's commitment and approach, there are plenty of opportunities to find out more and experience the 'Aveda way' for yourself.
