Chelsea and John Pinto hope the Sharks smell a deal when they pitch Boom Boom, their pocket aromatherapy product, in Shark Tank episode 1004. Boom Boom is a Chapstick sized tube filled with essential oils and scents designed to “help you stay focused and feel refreshed.” It's kind of like an energy drink for your nose.
The Pintos discovered the idea while traveling in Thailand. They saw people all around them using nasal inhalers. Foreigners in Thailand called them “The Wonder Vapors" and the Pintos brought some home to the states with them. They spent three years developing their version of the product which eventually became Boom Boom. The product claims to “rejuvenate your mind, refresh your senses, and increase your focus… all without harmful chemicals or sugary energy drinks.”
The product line includes nasal inhalers (think Vicks inhaler), roll on essential oils and lip balm. The inhalers are the main product and they come in five scents: Winter Mint, Melon Drop, Tropical Rush, Cinnamint and Berry Breeze. The inhalers claim to provide “lifted mood, increased focus and enhanced breathing.” They're also good for clearing a stuffy nose. At $19.95 for a three pack, they're priced similarly to a Vicks inhaler. The Pintos likely want a Shark's help with distribution. Will a Shark smell a good deal here?

Boom Boom Shark Tank Recap
Chelsea and John will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec and Guest Shark Charles Barkley that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards." A full pitch re-cap on Boom Boom will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
