Project 2024-03-07 12:42:14 +1300

In 2021, more than a quarter of the NZ population reported having poor mental health. Just think of how many people that really is.

We at Nosey Boys want to help out and bring the change that New Zealand needs. We started our business as a part of the Young Enterprise Scheme this year.

We want to create a product that helps solve this issue while also keeping people from feeling shy or ashamed when using our product. After talking with family and friends, and doing some research online, we found that in New Zealand there are not many consumer available scent-based products specifically focused at improving mental wellbeing.

We have decided to create an aromatherapy product with scents made from different essential oil mixes. We also gave our product a sleek and muted design that can be used by everyone.

 

Introducing the Nosey Boy’s Whiffstick 2.0:

An aromatherapy inhaler with different scents tailored to your needs!

Some benefits of our product are:

·       A Small and Portable design that easily fits into your pockets.

·       A Subtle and light-hearted design that does not demand attention.

·       5 Unique Scents all made from different essential oils blends.

·       Crafted with the highest quality materials available.

·       Made from ethically sourced oils.

·       Assembled in-house in New Zealand.

What scents are available?

Please note that the ingredients included in this list may differ to the actual product received as we are constantly working on improving our products effectiveness and experience.

Chillax – Made with lemon, peppermint, cinnamon bark, and ylang ylang, Chillax is great for when you need take a step back and just relax for a bit. These ingredients are known to help calm the mind and release tension, thus helping to relax anyone who smells this Whiffstick.

Ill-Pill – Do you hate feeling queasy during a long car ride? Are you prone to motion sickness? Do not worry, the Ill-Pill has got your back! Made from lemon, lavender, ginger, spearmint, and peppermint, the Ill-pill will help reduce the feeling of nausea.

Lock In – This scent intends to help you focus when you really need to. Made with lemon, lavender, bergamot, and patchouli, Lock In is perfect for moments where you need that extra little boost.

Sweet Dreams – Made with lavender, ylang ylang, lemon and vanilla oil, Sweet Dreams is ought to help you get a good night’s sleep.

Whiffstick (Original) – Made from fig, apple, coconut, and bergamot oil, our original Whiffstick scent has a sweet and pleasant smell suitable for general use.

 

We also want to mention that we are working on creating a healthy vape alternative through the use of essential oils, however because we want to provide the best products we can, we are still researching and trialling different scents. Once we have concluded that this product is effective, we will advertise and sell it on our website www.noseyboys.com.

What does this mean for us?

Reaching our goal of $2500 will allow us to source the metal exterior casings we plan to use for our Whiffsticks, along with the other resources required to produce and create our high-quality products. The supplier we have contacted can only supply them at a minimum quantity of 500 units making it quite pricey. Your support will help us purchase our first batch of metal casings. This campaign will also help us afford the packaging and oils for the batch. This will allow us to keep our Whiffsticks in stock while providing you a chance to try them out!

How will we help with Mental Health?

Aside from the effects of the oils used in our mix, we also plan to donate 10% of our sales to the Mental Health foundation. If we reach our goal of $2500, we will be able to donate $250 which will be spent on campaigning for a better mental health system in New Zealand so that Kiwis can get support when they need it.

As mentioned previously, we gave the Whiffstick a sleek and subtle design. This is to decrease the stigma around this type of product as we recognise that aromatherapy products are often seen as “female” products which we think shouldn’t be the case. We also recognise that some people also want to keep their mental health to themselves, and we hope that our design can help.

 

So, Who are we?
