Last Thursday was the first day of Fall. Here are four scents we associate with this time of year that can actually have health benefits . . .
1. Cinnamon. A recent study found it can improve your motor skills, memory, and attention span.
2. Pumpkin. It’s an aphrodisiac for men. A study in 2014 found it worked on about 40% of guys when it was mixed with lavender.
3. Apples. A study in 2008 found the smell of apples can help with minor headaches, and even relieve migraines for some people.
4. Nutmeg. Studies have found that burning nutmeg incense can help you relax and fall asleep. And there’s also a compound in it that might block the enzyme that contributes to Alzheimer’s disease.
There you go, enjoy and happy sniffing!
