    What does it help with?
    Is it worth buying if you feel very stressed?

    Having lived in a college town In Colorado, apparently people use it to cover up terrible body odor. It doesnt work.

    Apparently it was very popular during the 60's & 70's.

    It works as a termite repellent too!

    It has helped relieve stress. But I have found personally Bergamont, clove and frankincense, and ylang ylang to be more useful.

    Just drink tea to relieve stress. Drink enough of it and you can get a nice buzz going.

    I have bought some cheap matcha powder capsules. I think that would have the same effect?

    Probably, but if you are going to spend money on capsules, you should just get l-theanne extract. That is the compound in tea that gets you "tea drunk."

    Smelling like a goth.

    It was the pervading smell of Camden Market many years ago.

    Try Vetiver. It blends nicely with ylang ylang, too.
