Peppermint-Scented Pencils Help Writers Concentrate
Smencils are minty-fresh smelling writing impliments meant to help stimulate the brain and improve one's focus.
Certain smells have long been known to have therapeutic or beneficial effects. Peppermint in particular is regarded as a mental stimulant, stimulating the brain and improving focus or concentration levels. What better way to reap the benefits of peppermint than being able to sniff it from an everyday tool like a pencil?
Smart Smencils are pencils that have been infused with the scent of peppermint. Not only that, they are made of rolled up newspaper instead of wood.
Sheets of newspaper are rolled tightly around a standard #2 graphite writing core until the item resembles a pencil. The pencil is then soaked in a gourmet liquid scent created by an award-winning fragrance company. The pencil is set to dry and then placed inside a Freshness Tube made of corn-based biodegradable plastic. Smencils can maintain their scent for up to two years even if kept outside the Freshness Tubes.
