How can a cinnamon stick help boost my energy?

ANSWER

Some people say that just a whiff of this scented spice can lower tiredness and make them feel more alert. No cinnamon handy? Grab a mint from your bag. Peppermint's sweet aroma is another fatigue fighter for some people. But more research is needed to see if and how these aromas actually affect a person's energy level.
