Aromatherapy in a pen

Because you can't have enough essential oils to sniff.

In another era, one would have drawn certain suspicion when taking a whiff from paraphernalia carried around in a purse or a pocket. But in 2007, illicit substances have been replaced by the endorphins of aromatherapy. At the same time, as evidenced by such combo devices as the cigarette lighter flash drive , it's not enough for a gadget to have just one function.

So the time was obviously ripe for something like the "Aromatherapy Pen," which has two points--one for ballpoint writing and another to dispense "pure Swiss essential oils," according to Gizmodiva. If this sounds a little eccentric, consider this: You could be getting your aromatherapy from a USB port instead.
