Aromatherapists have taken advantage of the rejuvenating effects of peppermint for years. A natural decongestant, peppermint oil revitalizes the mind while perking up your senses. If you don't have time to visit your local aromatherapy shop, Darrin Zeer, author of "Office Spa: Stress Relief for the Working Week" (Chronicle Books, $9.95) suggests brewing yourself a cup of peppermint herbal tea. Lower your face over the cup, close your eyes, inhale and bask in the temporary retreat from everyday stressors.
