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 But in 2007, illicit substances have been replaced by the endorphins of aromatherapy.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.
