All you need is an orange peel to feel les stressed? Sounds strange, but the science is solid.
Mayo Clinic researchers have affirmed there’s a tremendous stress-relieving compound buried inside orange peels — called D-limonene.
You don’t have to ingest D-limonene to start feeling its effects.
Just SMELLING it can make quite a difference!
Turns out, when you smell an orange peel, the D-limonene you inhale increases your brain’s serotonin and dopamine levels — which helps you instantly feel calmer and more relaxed.
According to Barbara Thomley, lead coordinator for the Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program at the Mayo Clinic:
“From what we’ve seen with our patients, even a quick smell can make a major difference… lessened anxiety always seems to emerge as a benefit.”

That citrusy smell can help “take the edge off” and quickly put you in a better mood.
