Frequently Asked Questions

Why use a ring to deliver the Sniff It compounds?

The ring is convenient, mess-free and disposable. Wearing the ring on your finger gives you ready access to inhaling the scent. You can inhale again and again without having to open a bottle or package - freeing your hands to do other things!

Each ring has been specifically designed and ‘dosed’ for an intense inhaling experience, so there’s no excess scent mixture to make a mess.

The fascinating benefits of the Sniff It Energy Inhaler are yours for only pennies per breath. Once the scent fades from the ring, just throw it away.

What's the best way to use the Sniff It ring?

Wearing the Sniff It ring on a thumb or index finger works the best. This allows you to easily hold the ring to your nose without twisting your hand. Most people hold the ring an inch or two from their nose, although some users like to hold it tightly against their nostril while inhaling. A warm sensation on the skin is quite common.

The special pharmaceutical-grade elastic inside each Energy Inhaler ring allows for a one-size-fits-all. A unique fabric helps keep the ring in place on smaller fingers and a gentle stretch will relax the elastic to help accommodate larger fingers.

How long will my Sniff It ring last?

The more air that flows over the Sniff It ring the quicker the scent will diffuse and dissipate. The rings are designed for hours of use, so you're sure to get a lot of scented breathing time.

The rings have been designed with a number of patent pending innovations, including a protective vapor barrier to keep the scented medicaments away from your skin, a special wicking material that dispenses the proper 'dose' of odorant and a unique porosity-weave fabric that allows consistent diffusion and evaporation of the vapors.

We've had some people report that they kept "worn out" Sniff It rings in their cars and that a faint scent lingered for days.

Be sure to keep your Energy Inhaler ring out of the water. Water saturates the compounds and prohibits evaporation of the odorant molecules. Just slip it off if you’re washing your hands or going in the water.

Are there any advanced usage techniques?

The amount of active ingredient applied to each Sniff It ring has been designed to deliver the proper beneficial effect, however some users enjoy a more intense experience by wearing more than one ring at a time.

Bad odors present a special opportunity for Sniff It Energy Inhaler ring wearers. If you encounter an unpleasant smell, a malodorous traveling companion, or a stifling port-o-potty - you can use a Sniff It ring as a personal air deodorizer and 'block out the nasty'.

What makes Sniff It work?

The scent signatures of our aromatic blends are closely held trade secrets – but here is how they affect the brain:

The odorants (or scent molecules) in the Sniff It Energy Inhaler compounds stimulate the olfactory epithelia, which are directly connected to the olfactory bulb in the brain. Electrochemical signals are generated in the olfactory bulb and then sent to the limbic area, specifically the diencephalon and the hypothalamus, where the conditions for arousal are triggered.

Dopamine and endorphins are released that stimulate the receptor sites of pleasure, reward, mood and arousal. Under the direction of these powerful neurochemicals, the body responds with increased physiological responses and heightened sensitivity to pleasure sensations.

How often do I inhale?

At a minimum, inhale two or three breaths through each nostril. As far as a maximum number of inhalations, just stop when you no longer perceive the scent. After you have inhaled a few times, just move your hand away and go about your other activities. Let the bright color and the sensation of the ring around your finger serve as a reminder to inhale again later.

How do I know it’s working?

You will know it's working when you personally experience one or more of the following sensations:

  • You feel motivated and energized as you prepare for your activity
  • You feel a motivation to exert extra effort
  • You feel less pain from the excursion
  • You feel more focused and able to concentrate
  • You feel like you have an extra reserve of energy
  • You are in a more positive mood and excited about being active
  • Your breathing feels fuller
  • Your nose feels more open
  • You don't feel any caffeine jitters
  • You feel an analgesic effect if you have any minor pain
