Scentered Be Happy Therapy Balm


We are fans of these balms: infused with aromatherapy oils, they're designed to be smoothed onto pulse-points to shift your mood. Scentered's mantra is: 'Stop. Inhale. Reset'. And to be honest, we can't think of a time when this advice has been more needed (not in our living memories, anyway). So. Take a moment. Pause. And smooth this aromatherapeutic balm onto your skin. (We like to rub it between the palms, place them over the nose, and b-r-e-a-t-h-e, deeply.)

This particular Scentered balm is a  limited edition, just for summer: they're calling it 'sunshine in a stick' – and we think that's a great description. It blends aromatic and citrus notes like pink grapefruit and green mandarin, zesty lemon myrtle, spearmint, floral elements of marigold and neroli, with petitigrain and cedarwood 'for strength and depth'.

Others in the line-up are Sleep Well, Stress Less, Love Therapy and Escape Therapy – and on the Scentered website you'll also find some great wellbeing tips, in their blog.

They describe the balm as 'a natural way to brighten your day, lift your mood and boost positivity.' And we've a hunch we might need to carry this one round for a while, the way global events are unfolding...
