Aveda Chakra 5 Balancing Body Mist

Aveda's Chakra Balancing Body Mist ($30) is a body mist made from extracts of grapefruit, rosemary and ylang ylang that help balance mind and body. "With the help of Mr. Chakra –, a new, interactive website from Aveda, you will be given the tools you need to find the balance you deserve. Mr. Chakra will reveal energy-aligning tips that include guided meditation, breathing techniques, mantra usage and personal nutrition and also lead you to the ideal Aveda Chakra™ Balancing Body Mist.

Chakra 5 is supposed to be the center of creativity, self-expression and communication and helps you calm, relax and express yourself better. The body mist comes packaged in a glass spray bottle and has a strong fragrance initially. Chakra 5 is a rather unisex, citrusy scent, almost slightly medicinal. It dries down to a much subtler scent as time goes by. I have used it quite a bit so far and find the scent to be really nice and zingy - initially a little too strong for my liking, but feels a lot more calming after the scent wears down a little. I'm not sure of the "Balancing and Self-Expression" claim though. I really like spritzing it on it as an body mist and enjoy the strong, uplifting citrus boost, but the scent isn't the most long lasting on me- around 4 hours and a lot lesser in the summer. I can't speak for the other mists in the Aveda Chakra Collection (Check out the Mr.Chakra website to learn more about the other scents), but Chakra 5, although not anything spectacular, is worth a shot if you like citrusy, slightly earthy, herbal scents.

Have you tried any of the Aveda Chakra Body Mists?
