Peppermint tea and rosemary are found to 'significantly' improve long term memory in adults

The key to improving the memory could be found in two common herbs – peppermint and rosemary.

Peppermint tea was found to significantly improve long term memory and working memory in healthy adults. Meanwhile sniffing the aroma of rosemary was found to help older adults to remember to do things, a study found. But if you want to relax, the same research suggested different remedy from Mother Nature’s garden.

Drinking camomile tea was shown to slow down memory and attention speed – just the thing at bedtime - and the whiff of lavender was also found to have calming effects.

Dr Mark Moss and colleagues from Northumbria University will present their research to the British Psychological Society’s Annual Conference in Nottingham today (WEDS).
