How can we create and maintain abundance and motivational wellness with massage in 2019?
Let’s face it: we often mistake abundance for the money-making career aspects of our lives and consider ourselves healthy and well only if we see no illness in our bodies. The holiday season can leave you feeling mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausted and not so focused on those New Year’s resolutions of abundance or wellness. Pain and discomfort are great motivators for wellness, showing you how you didn’t remember to “pay yourself first”. The solution? A small change in perspective: everything in nature happens in its own time, at a much slower pace. If “time is money”, it makes sense to slow down and spend time and money on yourself, through your five senses, as you are meant to experience life. Every moment of wellness can motivate you to build a lifetime of abundance with small changes.
Creating and maintaining abundance and motivational wellness the Folawns way keeps it simple: experiencing yourself through your five senses helps achieve abundant health and wellness using natural aromatic oils to enhance massage sessions. After all, Aveda’s founder, Horst Rechelbacher, once said, “Plants are the best chemists.” As the son of an herbalist and his time spent as an aromatherapist (among many other hats and titles), Rechelbacher understood the gateway between mind and body is the air we breathe and the way to soothe mind and body is via aromatic oils made from Aveda’s pure plant essences. When the mind and body reconnect, you are better able to recognize abundance from the inside out. Each deep, full breath into the body’s tight areas can help you face life’s challenges with effective solutions.
A Folawns massage experience meets all 5 senses depending on which massage style and/or add-on you book:
- Chakra Balance massage: for those who are curious about the 7 main chakras*, guided meditations, and love the lighter touch of Swedish massage + any of the 7 chakra blends. *Chakras come from Aveda’s deep roots in Ayurveda, India’s philosophy of preventive health and mind-body wellness.
- Hot Stone Fusion massage: for those who just love hot stones**, stones may be placed or actively moved to coax muscles back into their original, relaxed form. **Stones are cooled down to a guest-friendly temperature of their choosing.
- Stress Fix massage: for deep tissue warriors who need a focus on back, neck and shoulders and love medium to firm pressure. Lavender lovers will enjoy the Stress Fix blend of lavender, lavandin and clary sage.
- Add-ons/session enhancement(s): Cupping therapy, hydrating therapy for body and feet, invigorating scalp treatment, reflexology foot massage.
- What to expect: soothing visual space, relaxing spa music, a cup of Aveda’s Comforting Tea or another beverage of your choice, and aromatherapy in addition to your chosen style of touch therapy as listed above.
After massage services, guests typically experience feeling more rejuvenated, centered and renewed through improved circulation and range of motion and nights of enhanced sleep.

We look forward to helping you find and maintain the experience of a more abundant you!

The basics of eye makeup application begin with determining the shape of your eyes.

The beautiful Earth Month 2013 campaign artwork tells the story of just one village, the village of Ampasimanjeva, Madagascar and what clean water means to them. The illustrations were drawn by children of the village showing the happiness clean water projects have brought to their lives. We think it’s beautiful and hope you do, too.
The March issue of Lucky Magazine lists AVEDA makeup brushes as “The 3 Brushes Every Makeup Bag Needs”. I’ve had my Aveda Brushes “seriously” for over 10 yrs! Best investment I’ve ever made
What are natural hair make-up brushes ?
Brushes that are made of natural hair contain many tiny spaces in them when seen microscopically . Hence when you use them they pick up a lot more pigments.
Tips for maintaining these must have brushes —-
– do not blow into the brush bristles and distort its shape to remove excess makeup.Instead, tap the brush against your hand or on a tissue .
This keeps the brush in shape for longer .
While cleaning the brush never rub the bristles instead rinse with running water in the direction of the bristles .
Never soak the entire brush because the wood and the adhesive that holds the bristles and the shaft together can dissolve.
After cleaning also remember to sculpt the bristles into the original shape before it dries.

Art of Nature
AVEDA just launched the new spring makeup collection, and at Folawn’s we are all in love. It consists of gentle pinks, dreamy blues and soft greens. The collection is called Art of Nature, and rightly so! Each pigment is named for the very substances of nature, from flowering plants, to the endless glowing blue that is the ocean. We are obsessed with the new colors, which are right in line with what is showing up on the runways now. Come in to Folawn’s to take a look at the new line and experience it yourself. Today we are all trying the different lip colors! They range from subtle pinks to bright corals. Everyone is walking around with a different beautiful shade!
Brie: One of my favorites in the line is the new rehydrating lip glaze, Kukui. The color is rich and deep in a romantic wine-stained burgundy. The name “Kukui” comes from the ancient Hawaiian tradition of using the wax from candlenuts to burn in stone oil lamps. Hawaiians called the oil lamps kukui hele po, which means “light, darkness go”. I thought this concept was so beautiful and perfectly fitting for this gorgeous lip glaze. The color is not dark, rather a deep shade that emanates a glow from within its depths.
Linds: The very essence of this collection is that of a Victorian dream. The enchanting hues and shades transport me to another world of ethereal beings. The colors are soft and romantic. I have a weakness for all things fairy-tale and dainty; this makeup collection hits those exact qualities! The colors are pure and gentle, with vibrant hues that call for attention, but don’t scream for it. Today I wore the bright coral tinted Cana Lip Color with a bare eye, and I loved the subtle yet powerful look it created.
