As a fan of aromatherapy, which she used to keep herself balanced whilst juggling work and home life, Lara Morgan was frustrated by the lack of practical aromatherapy products on the market. Fed up of leaking bottles and greasy, oil-based formulations Lara embarked on creating a range of multi-tasking, easy-to-use and truly portable products and together with business partner Fay Pottinger Scentered was born.
From personal experience Lara knows too well the pressures placed on women today, with stress levels at a high, so with their Stop. Inhale. Reset. ritual at the heart of each Scentered product you are encouraged to take a moment for yourself, breathe deeply and reset your mood, transforming the way you feel. One of their many targeted aromatherapy products is the fabulous Stress Less Therapy Balm, which I am sharing with you today.
The Stress Less Therapy Balm
Chamomile, Neroli & Manderin (RRP £14.50)* is a balancing and uplifting balm designed to ease everyday tensions, soothe the mind and lift the spirits. Reach for Stress Less when dealing with the demands of modern life, or whenever work, family or personal commitments get to much, and allow its calming scent to soothe away the stresses and bring back clarity of mind. This is a really great product to have close by if you are going through a stressful event such as moving home, planning a wedding, or preparing for job interviews and I’m sure it would make a welcome gift to anyone experiencing difficulties, whether at work, at home or with their health.
The 100% natural therapy balm features a gorgeous ‘feel good’ scent, combining uplifting citrus herbal top notes of Chamomile, Neroli, Mandarin, Rosemary and Sweet Brazilian Orange, a balancing floral heart of Jasmine, Rose, Mimosa and Lavandin, and a grounding Cedarwood base. Formulated with a blend of Moringa and Shea butters the balm provides a non-greasy finish, and long lasting therapeutic fragrance delivery.
I apply Stress Less to my temples and pulse points whenever I feel stressed or anxious and immediately I feel more in control. If I’ve had a particularly busy day it also eases any tension headache I may have and helps me drift into a deep, trouble-free sleep. I love to take a minute or two to breathe in the balm’s wonderfully relaxing aroma and it has definitely become my handbag hero and a product that I am never without!
Of course Scentered are committed to keeping their formulations 100% natural and as skin-friendly as possible so you will never find parabens, PEGS, SLS, glycols and diglycols, petrochemicals, phenoxyethanol, silicones, or synthetic fragrances or colours in their products, nor do they test on animals.
Scentered is also passionate about minimising the amount of waste produced, so all their packaging has been carefully designed in line with their ‘Re-use, Re-purpose or Recycle’ mantra. Additionally they believe in empowering women through profit-sharing, therefore 10% of net profits are given to Women for Women International, an organisation that empowers women to improve their lives, and rebuild communities in war-torn regions.
