candy cane 2Betcha didn’t know…

how peppermint can make you feel less tired.  The scent of mint increases activity in the area of the brain responsible for alertness and arousal, says Brian Raudenbush, Ph.D. In fact, research shows it can even reduce driver fatigue and car accidents.  A study at the University of Cincinnati found that volunteers who did a task requiring mental acuity finished faster in a peppermint-scented room, and other studies have found peppermint can make atheletes perform better and work harder without even noticing! So grab a candy cane and enjoy!
