I am reviewing the Aveda Chakra 4 Balancing Mist today. I have used a couple of products from Aveda so far and feel their products are quite pricey. However, I like the pampered feeling this product gives, might be because lots of spas and hair salons use Aveda. I have used a shampoo and the tourmaline face mask from this brand and I am happy with both. I also feel this brand is quite generous with samples which is always a good thing.
About the Aveda Chakra Range:
At Aveda, we draw on Ayurveda, a 5000-year old healing tradition from India, which helps us balance our chakras-7 spinning wheels of energy that affect our health, well-being and beauty. Chakra 4 is the centre of sympathy, empathy and love. When the heart chakra is balanced one feels love and connection to self and others. An authentic fusion of pure essential oils blended to balance the heart chakra according to Ayurveda, the ancient healing art of India. Essences of sandalwood, organic mandarin and palmarosa leave one feeling well balanced.
What is it? The centre of sympathy, empathy and love. When the heart chakra is balanced, one feels love and connection to self and others. When the heart chakra is imbalanced, one feels depression, loss of connection and lack of caring.
Aveda Chakra Balancing Mist Anahata is a refreshing aromatic body spray that contains certified organic mandarin, sandalwood and certified organic palmarosa to balance the heart chakra and promote a feeling of love and connection. Spray all over the body before yoga or meditation. Do not use on face.
Key Aroma Ingredients:
Certified organic mandarin, certified organic palmarosa, and sandalwood.
My Experience with Aveda Chakra 4 Balancing Mist:
This product comes in an opaque spray bottle with a firm nozzle. The glass bottle is quite sturdy and heavy. This product is not a perfume but a functional product. I have been struggling to fall asleep lately and also wanted to relax and calm my mind as I felt I was becoming irritated easily because I have been quite unhappy at work lately. What I was looking for is calmness.
At the beginning, this product feels a bit alcoholic but that wears off quickly. It smells mainly of geranium and orange even though geranium is not included in the list. I use this mainly before going to bed or before I go to the temple. I use this before going to my prenatal yoga classes as well as this helps me get into the mood of yoga and meditation.
It’s very similar to the Aveda products used at Aveda salon, this mist feels luxurious but also very earthy at the same time. At the end of the day, with all the wear and tear, you might feel exhausted and full of emotions and this product will definitely calm your mind, reduce hostilities and help you sleep better.
Pros of Aveda Chakra 4 Balancing Mist:
- Comes in a sturdy glass bottle – the opaque colour preserves the fragrance.
- Contains natural ingredients such as organic mandarin, palmarosa and sandalwood.
- This fragrance helps to feel empathy and connection with others, also relaxes and calms the mind.
- Very natural fragrance which is apt for summer.
- The fragrance lasts for quite a few hours on skin.
Cons of Aveda Chakra 4 Balancing Mist:
- This product is pricey for a quite simple blend of organic aroma ingredients.
- Because of the colour of the bottle, you will not know how much is left in the bottle.
This product will last me a long time even with regular use. I’ll definitely be repurchasing this later.
