The Aveda Stress Fix range launches in April and is aimed, as the name would suggest, at giving you a little bit of calm. You kind of have to like lavender as that is a key ingredient and as it happens I do. Lavender has undergone a revolution of late with the ‘real’ scent of lavender emerging and all the synthetic versions with ‘granny’ connotations banished to the back corner of your local chemist in the form of ‘dusting powder’. I like best the Stress-Fix Soaking Salts which double as a body exfoliator first and then as you emerse yourself in your bath water, fragrance the water with pure essential oils. The difference between that and any other exfoliator (because they all will immerse when you do) is that it is very finely ground and dissolves quickly in the water. There’s nothing that ruins a bath more than sitting in grit.
