This is your brain on rosemary

The scent of Aveda’s Rosemary Mint Shampoo may make you smarter — OK, that’s totally my unscientific conclusion based on the following study findings (and I may only be looking for an excuse to splurge on a bottle of the stuff):

A study published in Therapeutic Advances in Psychopharmacology found that the scent of this pine-y herb helps to boost cognitive performance thanks to a component called 1,8-cineole (which is also found in sage, eucalyptus and bay).

So  next time you need to cram for an exam, use this shampoo (or throw an herb-encrusted pork tenderloin in the oven — or both!).  You can thank me when you ace your test.
