We are FINALLY going to be in our new place on Saturday, which is the day before Mother’s Day. I am so excited to finally have our privacy back and to unpack all of our belongings. As the last few days of our stay with family draw to a close, I have found myself needing to de-stress big time. The baby in my belly is getting bigger, I am slowing down, my daughter is more active than ever, and I’m wondering how on earth I’m going to keep up with all that I have going on in my life right now. Tonight, I needed to unwind and take some time to myself. I grabbed the dog and a friend, put my tennis shoes on, and tried to relax by using some Aveda products then going on a peaceful neighborhood walk.
The first thing I grabbed as I was heading out the door was my stress-fix concentrate. The scent was like the freshest lavender that you could imagine. I felt like I was standing in a field of fresh lavender when I breathed it in. I put it on my pulse points and took a deep breath and instantly felt more relaxed. It’s in a rollerball like a perfume, but doesn’t have a super strong scent so it’s not like a perfume at all.
Next, I applied the stress-fix body lotion to my hands all the way up to my elbows. Using this lotion was the most luxurious experience as well. It’s super moisturizing and sunk in instantly. The scent really took me away from reality for a minute and was therapeutic in every way.
We were able to get in a good 2.5 mile walk and I was in a great mood the whole time! Scent can really help me de-stress and this one had everything in it that I needed to relax.
I haven’t had a chance to check out the stress-fix soaking salts yet, but I am thinking of giving myself a pedicure tomorrow after soaking my feet in these for a while. Another way of using the soaking salts would be to mix a bit of them with the lotion and use it as an exfoliator. I can’t wait to try it both ways!
Luckily, these three products are available at Aveda.com as a trio for Mother’s Day. I think any mother in your life would be lucky to own this set, whether it’s your own mother, or if you buy it for yourself. And just so you have one less thing to stress about, the gift set comes pre-wrapped and ready for gift giving.
Do you like the scent of lavender? Wouldn’t you love to own this set?!
