What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

WHAT IS AN ESSENTIAL INK PEN?

ESSENTIAL INK PEN IN BLACK
ESSENTIAL INK PEN IN BLACK
 

Introducing the Essential Ink Aromatic Pen ~ The first essential oil aromatic writing pen of it's kind. If you love essential oils, then you already know the amazing health benefits from them. Use your Essential Ink Oil Diffusing pen at work to reduce your stress and anxiety levels ~ use you favourite calming oil, and ahhhh....inhale the peacefulness.

This pen is perfect for children as well. When using it at school, use an invigorating oil such as peppermint to aid in concentration and focus and place it on the lava stone provided to give the pen a fidgeting 'rattle' that can help with anxiety. 

Do you Love to Journal or Bullet Journal? Use your favourite mindfulness oil in your pen to write with intention ~ ahhhhhh...inhale the inspiration

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Simply unscrew the stainless steel filigree cap from the pen, place one or two drops of your favourite essential oil on the felt pad or lava bead provided, place into the cap, and thread back onto the pen and inhale the inspiration!

RESEARCH SHOWS THAT YOU SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN!

A friend and mentor of mine always used to say 'think it then ink it' Are you trying to manifest something? Write it down! Typing it on a keyboard does not have the same effect.

Here's the proof!

Two professors (one from Princeton and one from UCLA) conducted a study by running three experiments. They had students take notes in a classroom setting. The study looked at students taking notes on a variety of things: bats, bread, algorithms, faith and economics. After, the students were tested on: Memory of factual detail Conceptual understanding of the material Ability to synthesize and generalize information

The study revealed that students who wrote their notes on paper learned more than those who typed their notes.. Students who wrote their notes by hand were aware that they wouldn’t catch every word. It forced them to focus on listening and digesting. Then, summarize in their own written words. The process made the brain work harder and fosters comprehension and retention of the material.

The research shows that students who took notes on their laptop did take more notes. But, they retained much less. This is because students who use a laptop simply type a record of the lecture. They don’t use their brain to process what is being taught. Therefore students are merely transcribing, not processing.

Now pair the art of writing with inhaling the perfect essential oil for the task...go ahead.. inhale the inspiration!

WHY YOU NEED THIS PEN

Simple, it will make you feel better! It helps relieve your stress and anxiety, and helps you concentrate.

How will it make me feel better?

Stress and Anxiety are relieved very effectively by the inhalation of essential oils. Using a CALMING essential oil such as Lavender in the Essential Ink pen while at work or school will help you stay calm and focused throughout your day.  Peppermint Essential oil can be used in the pen for concentration and focus

Use Lemon oil or your own favourite essential oil in your essential ink pen to create a Focused Meditative environment perfect for journaling 

Relieve your stress by inhaling the essential oils through the cap of the pen

HOW DID I COME UP WITH THIS IDEA?

Being a jewelry designer, I always love to dream up new designs and products. I LOVE essential oils and had created many different essential oil jewelry pieces. I literally woke up on New Years day 2018 and the idea of an aromatic writing pen popped into my head! 

 I brought out my sketch book and drafted up the first picture of the pen. 

My first sketch of the Essential Ink Pen
My first sketch of the Essential Ink Pen

I wanted it to be beautiful as well as durable and be able to handle the filament of the oils so, I designed a stainless steel filigree cap for the top of the pen. I wanted the pen to be for everyone and also feel amazing in your hand (who doesn't love a good pen) so I went with the rubber coated fine tip german ink ball point pen. In April 2018 the prototype was finished. A few tweaks had to be made and Essential Ink was born! It has a very therapeutic calming effect when writing and it also has an amazing feel to it.. as you write, the essential oils emanate into your personal space...deep breath in....ahhhhhh inhale the calm.
