Both scents are very subtle - don't expect a face melting blast of peppermint - but I quite like using them throughout the day to center myself as I work. I use the energy boost stick often, applying to my wrists and breathing deeply until I feel rejuvenated, then applying behind my ears before getting back to work. I use the stress relief stick either when things start to get hectic, or when I've finished my work for the day and want to slow down. They're very fun little additions to my day. Thanks GingerChi.
