Life is finally resuming some level of normality once again. Don’t get me wrong, as a mum of two young kids, I’m ecstatically happy that restrictions are lifting. It’s just that I’d forgotten how packed my life was before Covid-19 hit. Now the prospect of juggling work, school, childcare, after school activities, weekend activities, exercise and socialising seem a little daunting. The truth is that I’m out of practise and lockdown, whilst stressful in many respects had eased some of that daily pressure.
What is an Aromatherapy Balm?
An aromatherapy balm enables the user to rapidly apply powerful mood-enhancing essential oils to pulse points. It’s different to traditional aromatherapy methods where essential oils are housed within a liquid carrier oil. Balms feel and look like lip balms and are solidified oils that melt into liquid when they meet skin.
Scentered have gone one step further and created sustainable refills for their aromatherapy balms. It’s a brilliant innovation and shows that with thought and consideration, brands can make their own products as sustainable and eco-conscious as possible.
5 Reasons to Switch to a Sustainable Refill Aromatherapy Balm
Reason 1: Scentered Aromatherapy helps with Mindful Transitions
Transitioning from one activity to another requires us to do this not only in a physical sense, but also psychologically. The problem is that our mood doesn’t necessarily follow, and we remain stuck in a mood and mind-set that may not be right for the current activity.
Let’s illustrate this with an example. We might get up at 7am because we’re required to be at work at 8.45am, but we still feel sleepy, sluggish, and lacking inspiration. This is a great time to use aromatherapy to speed up our mood transition. Rather than waiting for the next hour to pass, a shower and 3 cups of coffee before feeling enlivened, inhaling an appropriate aromatherapy scent instantly helps us to feel more invigorated, awake, and uplifted.
Reason 2: Scentered Aromatherapy Balms are Mess Free
In the old days, essential oils only came in bottles. The problem was that they often leaked even when shut, spilt when they were knocked over, or shattered when they were dropped. These were problems that were experienced by Scentered founder, Lara Morgan and she realised the need for portable aromatherapy products to support her mindful transitions from home to office to travel to “me time”. The Scentered Wellbeing Ritual Aromatherapy Balm was borne out of this desire.
It took several years for the final formulation to be produced. Now, each Scentered Wellbeing Ritual Aromatherapy balm contains up to 25 premium mood-enhancing essential oils, carried within a nourishing moringa and shea butter balm for mess-free application to your pulse points.
Reason 3: Scentered Refillable Balms Come in Two Best Selling Scents
It’s true! You can now buy refillable balms in your two favourite scents, De Stress and Sleep Well.
Scentered’s DE STRESS refill aromatherapy balm is a soothing blend, ideal for helping you to juggle throughout the day and keep calm and in control. Excellent for unwinding after a stressful day at work. It’s blended with Chamomile to promote calmness and Neroli and Mandarin to help soothe tension and support feelings of well-being.
Scentered’s SLEEP WELL refill aromatherapy balm is the ideal sleep aid, quieting the mind and promoting a better, deeper quality of sleep. You’ll also awake feeling well-rested and give yourself the best chance to start the day on the right foot. It’s a sophisticated floral lavender blend harnessing amongst others, the therapeutic benefits of Lavender, Chamomile, Palmarosa and Ho Wood.
Reason 4: Scentered Refillable Balms are Sustainable
Being eco-conscious and creating sustainable products is at the heart of every decision the team at Scentered makes. Product, packaging, and freight are assessed thoroughly to ensure that waste is minimised, and that sustainable, recyclable materials are used, reused, or repurposed wherever possible. Additionally, our aromatherapy balms are made from ingredients that are 100% natural and sourced sustainably from the earth.
Refillable balms have even less product packaging too. Once you’ve bought the initial aromatherapy balm, you can pop a refill into the original tube each time one runs out. It really is the ultimate sustainable product, with less waste contributing towards landfill and ongoing recycling of the original product, lengthening its lifecycle.
Reason 5: Scentered Refillable Aromatherapy Balms Offer Better Value.
Once you’ve purchased one of our standard aromatherapy balms priced at £14.90, you’ll only ever need to buy the refill packs. Follow the instructions carefully to remove the used balm stick and replace it with a refill.
Our refill packs retail currently at £16 for two 5g refill balms so the value speaks for itself!We would love to hear about your mental wellness journey. You can also keep in touch via our Instagram @iamscentered or sign up to our newsletter for updates, news and offers.
