Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) June 17, 2006 -–
De-Stress essentials, a values driven online store dedicated to helping people feel blissful with their consciously chosen products, has recently launched. With home offices in Santa Barbara, De-Stress essentials sells a range of relaxation and wellness products that include soy candles, aroma sticks, crystal salt lamps, harmonious living music, and a growing line of natural and organic bath and body care products.
Maria Carbonell, founder of De-Stress essentials comments, “I am dedicated to not only providing the tools to help people relax and to take care of their inner spirit but to also encourage them to take action in a cause they can connect with. We are always capable of doing more. It's in our spirit.” De-Stress essentials partners with several non-profits in the San Francisco bay area to help them raise money and materials for their programs.
Carbonell firmly states,“I believe there’s an increasing movement in which consumers are driven by purchasing products at stores with a conscience, meaning they are driven by social values and not just getting more bang for their buck. Consumers are smart and are armed with information at their fingertips that wasn't available just over 5 years ago. I have always loved business and commerce and I wanted to start an online store where I could provide natural products to soothe the mind, body and soul without placing emphasis on physical beauty per se. Through my store I wanted to promote the calmness and inner beauty that we all have the potential to unleash, if not blocked by the stresses of life."
While promoting wellness, De-Stress essentials continues to focus on building partnerships with communities and non-profits to be stronger, more effective and persuasive for the sake business and the human spirit.
