Anxiety can set in ahead of big events such as an interview or an exam, or you may just be feeling a bit on edge without any particular cause.

Doctor’s advice

Next steps

There are many studies that confirm that certain scents can influence brain activity and enhance certain mood states. Those known for improving mood are those of lavender, rosemary, frankincense, jasmine, and lemon. Aromatherapy can be a useful "drug-free" add-on to any other therapy but is not enough to treat low mood by itself.
