Breathe in some peppermint, Breathe in ENERGY! For hundreds or, in many cases, thousands of years, people have regularly applied different essential oils for purposes of health and well-being. But did you know that inhaling certain scents could actually help boost mental clarity? Newer research has suggested that inhaling essential oils, such as peppermint, may reduce the perceived level of mental fatigue or burnout.Peppermint has a strong and clean aroma – making it a pleasant smell to breathe in, but you can also try applying it to the back of your neck and shoulders to help support your energy over a longer stretch of time. Keeping a bottle at work as a go-to (instead of more coffee) serves as a great strategy for enhancing energy and a great tool to keep your breath fresh.
