Studies have shown that the scent of peppermint helps stimulate the brain and improves concentration level.
To help you remain focused when writing, pencil production company Smencil has created a peppermint-scented pencil called ‘Smart Smencil’.
Made from tightly wound up pieces of newspaper that has been dipped in “gourmet liquid scent”, it said to help “improve mental agility and concentration”.
To keep its freshness, the pencils are stored inside a “Freshness Tube”. When taken out, their scent will remain for up to two years.
Besides peppermint, the company also sells other types of scented pencils like bubble gum, cinnamon, cotton candy and root beer.
