We’re only just beginning to discover how powerful the nose is. Designers in a variety of fields are tapping into the sense of smell to do everything from recall memory to encourage romantic attraction. In this case, the creatives at BRISK are using it to help individuals manage eating habits and disorders.
The design, dubbed the Essence Wand, consists of nesting modules that contain filters soaked in essential oils. These include mint for beating hunger, ginger for fighting nausea, lemon for detox, orange for toning the metabolic system, and grapefruit for increasing appetite. Whether you’re someone struggling with a diet or a patient taking medication that limits your appetite, this convenient system, packed into a portable pen-like unit, can help you get your eating habits on track in the most natural and convenient way possible.
