Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to celebrate the opening of the brand new Aveda Bondi Junction store with some lovely fellow bloggers!
Located on level three of Bondi Westfield, the new Aveda store carries the full range of Aveda’s hair, skin and make up products. It is an absolutely gorgeous store, featuring a live plant wall and a beautifully calming atmosphere. While in store, we were given the run down on Aveda’s begginings and roots in the traditional indian healing principals of Ayurveda.
Avuyrveda principals work closely with the bodies seven Chakras; Insight, Intention, Wisdom, Grounded, Harmony, Expressive and Nourished. While in store we took our own sensory journey to discover which of our Chakra’s needed a little bit of balancing. The process is quite simple, select three of the seven chakra cards whose words, symbols or colours grab you. You then smell the Aveda fragrances associated with each Chakra, and the one that appeals to you the greatest tells you which of your Chakra’s may be slightly off balance at that time. The Chakra I ended up selecting was Harmony (chakra 4), with the associated Aveda Chakra balancing mist featuring scents of organic sandalwood, mandarin and palmarosa. This Chakra is the center of sympathy, empathy and love. When the heart chakra is balanced, one feels love and connection to self and others.
The Chakra mist is a great one to keep on your desk when you need a little bit of balance! You can take your own sensory journey in the new Bondi Junction store, or online here. Also keep an eye on the blog – I’ll be featuring some brand spanking new Aveda products soon!
