Spicy Way to Boost Confidence


Are you about to embark on a nerve-racking situation? It could be a job interview, a stage performance, a public speech—we’re cringing just thinking about it! Here’s a little help to boost your confidence…

The effect of scents on the psyche is potent and immediate. So, right before “show time,” take a few whiffs of black pepper. No, not ground black pepper. That’ll make you sneeze. You want black pepper essential oil. Look for it among the aromathera­py inhalers at most health-food stores. A few whiffs can boost confidence and amplify courage. That confidence and courage, along with planning, preparing and practicing, will make you a star!
