March 3, 2011 — -- Can't get going in the morning? Take a deep breath in, because there are scents that might actually make you feel more awake in the morning! It's not the smell of coffee. There are three scents that can wake you up: jasmine, which increases beta waves (the brain waves associated with alertness), and citrus and peppermint scents, which stimulate the same nerve that's activated when you're revived with smelling salts.
