Smell training with Sniffin’ Sticks
The Burghart Smell Quartet smell training kit (also known as the Duft Quartett) can be used to improve your sensory abilities (smell training). The most commonly used smell training is based on the research of Professor Thomas Hummel from the University of Dresden. For this training you have to intensively smell 4 different scents twice a day. The odors are rose, eucalyptus, lemon (lime) and clove. This is the original smell training as prescribed by (ENT) doctors worldwide.
These pens are in collaboration with Dr. Hummel developed by the firm Burghart. The advantage of these pens is that they last for a long time (about 1-1.5 years) and are easy to use. They are, as it were, four felt-tip pens that are not provided with ink but with natural fragrances. Each pen has a best-before date so you can be sure that the pens have the correct fragrance strength and are reliable for the training.
The scent quartet consists of four fragrance pens with the following scents: lemon, rose, eucalyptus and clove. The set will be delivered including a box, gloves and manual.
Improve your sense of smell
On the basis of contemporary knowledge, the effect of the quartet is a stimulation of the olfactory mucus and also a strengthening of the sensation in the brain. To notice the effect of the odor training, you must carry out the training for several months. Various studies have shown that the first result is often noticeable after 6-7 months. It is also important that you do it daily. In the morning and in the evening. Put the fragrance pens in a handy place so that you do not forget and you can train your sense of smell daily.
The idea that our sense of smell can be improved via training might at first seem strange, but the more you think about it the more it makes sense. Going to the gym and lifting weights can improve muscle mass and tone, and practicing the guitar regularly will (hopefully!) improve proficiency. So will spending time sniffing odours.
Each stick is labelled with a best before date, this date is approx. 1,5 year after purchase. Due to hygiene reasons we cannot accept returns of the sticks.
We have these sticks available from stock, we can ship it worldwide upon receipt of your order.
