I use the Happiness Mood Stick before big presentations, the Tranquility to rest more peacefully while traveling, the Energy in the morning before a workout, and the Serenity with my morning meditation.

The Mood Factory takes an innovative approach to wellness, combining tech and consumer products, launching a new scent line based on how smells impact moods.
The Mood Factory, established in 2004 by Founder and Chief Mood Officer Kathryn Goetzke, is relaunching the company based on exciting new evidence on the impact of scents and multi-sensory engagement, with an incredible advisory board of experts in the space. With her previous product success, including a 35 million retail brand with over 1 million for charities, she is passionate about the new line of consumer products (ranging $10-$30) and the potential to positively impact consumer moods.
Dr. Nadim Shaath, author of Healing Civilizations and expert in essential oils, remarked, “The Happiness blend is a mixture of five refreshing citrus essential oils, namely, lemon, mandarin, bergamot, lime and grapefruit. Increasing research has shown that scents can have a positive impact on moods, and the citrus family is especially known for the uplifting and invigorating qualities.”
Research suggests people are out of the present moment approximately 50% of the time, and it is one of the greatest barriers to human happiness and contentment. Yet one of the easiest ways to get present is through sensory engagement. The Mood Factory has infused the Mood-scent Happiness essential oil blend in a number of products, including bath bombs, shower steamers, body butters, scent sticks, body scrubs, massage oils and room and body sprays.
“It is so unhealthy how much time we spend in our minds, worrying about the future or ruminating about the past, over things we have so little control. Yet if we could just learn to get out of our mind and into the present, we are happier,” says Goetzke. “I use the Happiness Mood Stick before big presentations, the Tranquility to rest more peacefully while traveling, the Energy in the morning before a workout, and the Serenity with my morning meditation. Learning how to get present is an ongoing challenge for me, and creating fun and easy ways to do so has been a great life hack. Literally, anyone can use it when they need a quick pick-me-up - kids can put one in their backpacks, women can carry one in their purse, and men can have one in their briefcase. When you find your mind wandering and your body tensing - smell and anchor.”
Mood-ticks are available from $12, and there are other products including body butters, massage oils, essential oil blends, bath bombs, shower steamers, and a Mood-air essential oil diffuser. The key is to remind yourself, throughout the day, to stop the mind and enjoy the present moment. There are so many ways to do this, and The Mood Factory is excited to be exploring this sensory space.
As part of the Happiness product line, The Mood Factory is donating 10% of profits from the sale of products to Hopeful Minds, a skills-based program for teaching hope to young kids. The program teaches 8-10-year-old children about creating, maintaining and sustaining hope even during the most trying times. Recent research out of Ulster University in Northern Ireland is showing positive results for reducing anxiety and depression in youth, and increasing hope. The program is being used around the world, and is free and available to all at http://www.hopefulminds.org.
