What does it mean to you? It is so easy to spend your days rushing around from one task to another. To squeeze as much into your day as possible to give you a sense of achievement. Prior to covid we were away nearly every weekend, and if we didn’t go away, we would fill our weekends with days out and general tasks. I would say lockdown has definitely forced us to step back, enjoy the simple things in life and to slow down a little. When we were asked if we would like to review the Scentered Escape travel candle and Scentered daily ritual collection mini balms I jumped at the chance. I love to try products that are perfect for packing in the camper van
It is so important to make sure we all factor in some ‘me time’ into our week. If that is reading a good book, having a bath, incorporating exercise into your day, taking a yoga class…me time is essential to reduce stress and restore energy. You can’t drink from an empty cup right?
Even when we are off on our campervan adventures, we still like to take the opportunity to take time for ourselves. I love my travel candles, and love nothing more than sitting in a camping chair watching the sunset with a good book or simply sitting back with a cuppa watching the kids play out in the fresh air. That is sunshine to me.
So let me tell you a bit more about Scentered. Scentered was originally founded with an aim to create portable aromatherapy and essential oils to help to transport the mind, throughout the every day journey.
offer 100% natural, essential oil-based candles, aromatherapy balms, hair and body care products. What I really love is that the products are specifically designed for travelling and individuals who are on the go, therefore the portable aromatherapy and essential oil products are great for vanlife, weekends away and holidays.
Another wonderful point to add is that all Scentered packaging has been carefully designed so that it can be repurposed, reused or recycled. They aim to take from already recycled materials, for example their 100% recycled plastic bottles used for body and hair care products or by using natural products with a sustainable source.
Scentered are on a wonderful mission to help to reduce waste and ask that you reuse the packaging such as the candle glass or bottles and share your creative ideas with @iamscentered #repurposereuserecycle. There are many ideas such as toothbrush holders, drawer organisers, desk tidies… the list is endless!!!

Scentered aromatherapy review
What an absolute delight, the products are unique, wonderful quality and beautifully packaged. I love that they have a focus on travel and busy lives and encourage you to stop, inhale, reset. Their packaging is designed and considered so it can be repurposed, reused or recycled and this is also a huge factor for me whenever I consider a purchase. I love all of the products I have sampled but the travel balms are great and really transportable. They are designed to not leak in your hardback or travel bag. The scent are beautiful and not too over powering – I Am really pleased that I have been introduced to this wonderful company and I know really want to try the shampoo, conditioner and wash and lotion duo next.
