I’ve always been a deep sleeper – trust me, once I’ve gone under you can’t wake me – but lately I’ve been finding it harder and harder to fall asleep when I want to as I always remember things that I have not done or am anxious about once I place my head on my pillow. I didn’t think it was that big of a deal until a member of my family mentioned that my sleeping patterns were messed up and that I slept like a “3rd year student who was working on their dissertation”. . . . and that’s bad

Luckily for me, I was given the Aveda Stress-Fix Composition Oil – £22 via Aveda – just last week, which is a stress-fix “aide” to help me reduce my feelings of stress with certified organic lavender, lavandin and clary sage from the French Alps plus 100% naturally derived (from plants, non-petroleum minerals or water) certified organic sunflower and jojoba seed oils.This new Composition Oil from Aveda has been designed to be used either as an all-over body, massage and scalp oil or as an aromatic oil that can be added to your bath.

I know you can’t judge a product by its packaging but this composition oil is quite gorgeous. It comes in a 50ml glass bottle that wouldn’t look amiss at an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ themed brunch – though I definitely wouldn’t recommend drinking from this – and its tiny in-built dropper allows you to easily control the amount of drops you want.



As I don’t have a bath – actually that’s a lie, I do but I cannot find my drain plug – I’ve decided to be quite smart and massage the Stress-Fix Composition Oil onto my hands, feet, neck and temples immediately after my nighttime shower so that the oil can really seep into my skin, soften my tense muscles.

I’m not sure if this has brought me relief (or if I have just stopped stressing about the little things in my life) but regardless I am very happy with this product and I would recommend it to someone as it is one of the first sleep/stress aides I’ve tested that doesn’t make me feel like I’m choking on lavender and/or rose fumes (I really cannot stand heavy floral scents).

The Aveda Stress-Fix Composition Oil costs £22 and is available from Aveda, Debenhams, House of Fraser & Feel Unique
