Studies have shown that the scent of peppermint stimulates brain activity and improves concentration. So if you need a little advantage the next time you're taking a test, you may want to have a Smart Smencil in your hand.
We roll sheets of newspaper tightly around the #2 graphite writing cores until pencils of typical thickness are formed. Then they're hardened - allowing them to be sharpened just like wood pencils. Next, we soak them with our gourmet liquid peppermint scent (made by an award winning fragrance company). Once they're dry, we attach the erasers and apply the stickers around them. Lastly, we put each Smart Smencil into it's own corn-based biodegradable Freshness Tube.
In studies, peppermint has been shown to help improve mental agility and concentration. So now you and your students can have the benefits of peppermint
during test taking.
The #2 graphite writing cores we use in Smart Smencils are the same as those used in most common pencils and are acceptable for use on computer scanned test sheets.
School Aministrators: Order these peppermint Smart Smencils for the purpose of giving them to your students before
taking their tests.
Fundraising Coordinators: Use them as a fundraiser the same way our other products are used. (see the fundraising page for more info on fundraisers)
