Sometimes you just need a break from the usual 24/7 day life. And funny thing, you would first know, when you arrived, that this break was much needed.
Arriving in the middle of vineyards, when the sun puts everything in that special golden light, and later turning into mysterious orange. Silent music and whispering people, who walk slowly and time seems to stand still for a short period of time. We are waiting much too long to take those timeouts, but when we are in the middle of it, we know, it is exactly what our body and mind was craving for. Leaning back, inhaling the crisp air and enjoying nature around me.
I didn’t have to travel far. Just one hour west from Vienna. 2 days don’t make a holiday and you won’t get rid of health issues caused from ignoring the voice of your body, but you will relax and train your inner voice to listen what your body has to say. The Aveda Spa in Langenlois is a great place for that matter.
Being an Aveda Fan since the very early days, when the Austrian Hairdresser Horst Rechelbacher started his mission on plant based hair products and preached to take care of our environment in the 80ies. He was such a visionary wise man, and his soul still lives in the Aveda products. I felt it in every smell at the Spa. Be it the ‚Rosemary mint hand and body wash‘ in the shower, the Jojoba Oil ‚Beautifying Composition‘ at the manicure, the nourshing lavender ‚Stress-fix composition Oil‘ during the foot bath or the choice of one of the authentic fusions of pure essential oils in the Chakra balancing Bodysprays.
Even though I stick in daily beauty routine more with Horst’s late brand ‚Intelligent Nutrients‘ (100% food-based, safe, non-toxic and organic ingredients) nowadays, this Aveda SPA-Experience was so much better than just a visit at the next best beauty salon. The only thing I have to change for my next health break: Not waiting until it is much needed, but honor my body & soul with a day off on a regular basis.
Take care and stay healthy!

Back home, I started right away with some me time by drinking one of my favorite organic teas ‚Lov is Zen‘ and a spot of Blue Oil, which is stress-relieving and helps dissolve tension and raise energy with peppermint and blue camomile.
And I will do a hand peeling more often! Hey it is so quick and hands should be always treated nice. How it works? here: https://windowsofvienna.com/2012/04/19/smooth-hands/
