To improve speed and performance on mental tasks, scent the environment with rosemary. It could start with a twig on the desk, for example.
A study by Northumbria University (England) with a group of volunteers taking math tests found that by getting in touch with the essence of rosemary sprinkled in the environment, the group's performance improved.
More interestingly, it was found by blood tests that the higher the concentration of eucalyptol (the most active chemical component of the plant) in the body, the faster and more accurate the responses.
So use and abuse rosemary. And prefer the always fresh herb!
