The Scent of Clementines

Whenever you are feeling anxious, stop and inhale the aroma of clementines. Researchers found that women who were exposed to the sweet scent felt more relaxed and collected. They suspect that the smell triggers the release of serotonin, a feel-good neurotransmitter in the brain.

For every day instant calm, try making a citrus centerpiece. To do: Using a lemon zester, lightly carve swirl or spiral shapes into the surface of 5 to 6 clementines and arrange them in a large bowl. You may add a handful of whole clove leaves and cinnamon sticks to accent your centerpiece. PLace in common area of the house and replace fruits after one week. :)
