Aveda and Earth Month

You know the soothing scent of Aveda that hits you the second you step in the door of their salons or stores? Now you can have that in your home. Aveda has launched a limited edition soy wax candle that will be sold this April for Earth Month. It smells like French lavender and is made with 100 percent organic ingredients. Through buying the candle, all of your proceeds will go to the Global Greengrants Fund, in support of awareness of clean water rights worldwide.

Soy wax burns cleanly and completely and this particular candle also uses clary sage from Northern Provence along with the lavender and lavandin. The candle also has aromatherapeutic benefits approved by the world’s leading aromatherapists. The packaging is also made of 100 percent reclaimed glass from wine coolers.  The Light the Way candle costs just $13.  Also, I love their Rosemary and Mint Hand and Body Wash because it makes you smell fresh and amazing all day! So go pick up a candle, read the GGF website and while you’re at it try that hand wash. It’s one of my favs. And don’t forget to check out the Wine for Water Fundraiser in Toronto to benefit WaterCan, Aveda’s Earth Month partner. It’s at the Design Exchange on Thursday March 25th from 6 until 9pm. Margaret Trudeau will be there and the event will have a silent auction, tasting menu and live auction with all proceeds going to the organization.  Tickets are $150 single and $250 pair.
