How To Know Which Essential Oil You Need Right Now

People have been using aromatherapy for thousands of years to enhance their health and wellbeing. Whilst it may seem out of place in today’s technological world, tools to support our frenetic and often stressful lives are needed more than ever. Essential oils are a portable, convenient, and inexpensive choice and they can help transition your mood and mindset in a matter of seconds.


How Do I Know Which Essential Oil to Use?

The answer to this question very much depends on how you want to feel. That is because aromatherapy can help your mood and mindset quickly transition from an undesirable state into a much more desirable one.

So, if you’d like to feel more alert for a work meeting, choose scents that are uplifting, heighten the senses and support cognitive brain function. Likewise, if you want to wind down after a hard day’s work, go for those that calm and balance the mind. 

Luckily Scentered have done all the hard work for you and created six powerful aromatherapy blends, SLEEP WELLDE STRESSHAPPYFOCUSLOVE and ESCAPE to support your daily transitions. The quickest and easiest way to get their benefit is by applying a Scentered Aromatherapy Balm

These have been intelligently designed and have up to 25 premium, 100% natural, mood-enhancing essential oils carried within a nourishing moringa and shea butter balm for mess-free application to the pulse points.

What Do Essential Oils Do?

Essential oils have different properties, so you’ll find the calming, relaxing, mind-clearing oils within our SLEEP WELL, DE STRESS and ESCAPE blends. On the other hand, uplifting, energising oils that promote cognitive alertness feature in our HAPPY and FOCUS blends, whilst those oils that support hormonal or emotional imbalance are key components of the LOVE blend.
