Rosemary is an excellent brain and nerve tonic. Research shows that this fresh-smelling herb stimulates the brain, improves memory and increases mental clarity. For a mental boost, take a rosemary-basil aromatherapy bath everyday for five days, and take note of any change in your perception!

  • Place 1/2 cup rosemary, 1/2 cup basil and 1 cup oatmeal into a clean, thin sock.
  • Tie a secure knot at the open end.
  • Drop the sock it into a tub of running water.
  • While in the water, take deep, soothing breaths.
