Happy Paul 1200 Lead

After two years in the making, Happy Paul has launched – a brand with a mission to support mental health through a smile.

Created by Paul Gerrard of Gerrard International, a life-long sufferer of depression, Happy Paul hopes to change an ‘all or nothing’ approach to wellness by developing products that encourage simple, rewarding acts of self care.

The first product is an uplifting roll-on perfume oil – a blend of mood-enhancing ingredients carefully crafted ‘to help trigger a little happy from the outside inwards.’

When asked about the launch of Happy Paul, Gerrard comments: “It came out of a primal need to do something to care for my own mental health and to help myself feel strong enough to be of use to others.

“The protection of our mental health and learning how to live with and manage poor mental health is so important and something most of us take for granted.”

“I’m hoping that Happy Paul will introduce a down to earth, refreshing voice to the landscape of self care, wellness and mental health, by encouraging very simple acts of self care and new experiences. Most of all, I hope Happy Paul will bring those it touches a little joy and a smile.”

The vegan-friendly, cruelty-free perfume oil features top notes of bergamot, spearmint, lemon, eucalyptus, pink peppercorn and cinnamon bark, mid notes of frankincense, petitgrain, rosemary, jasmine and base notes of cedarwood, vetivert, sandalwood and musks. It should be rolled across pulse points (inside of wrists, along neck, behind ears) before inhaling and letting out a long, relaxed sigh.

20% of the profits from Happy Paul’s perfume oil will go to support YoungMinds mental health charity. “I have got to know the team at YoungMinds as a volunteer,” Gerrard reveals. “The organisation is simply amazing and the work that it does is life changing. It affects the future of so many young people.

Gerrard wants the benefits of Happy Paul to be positively felt, and to make users happy. He confesses: “Happy Paul will do its utmost to make products that bring a smile to the user, because we know how contagious a smile can be.”
