Can peppermint improve memory?

Owl class investigated whether -as some people believe- the smell of peppermint improves focus, concentration and memory.  Children took part in recall tests before and after peppermint oil was dispersed around the classroom.  The results aren’t conclusive: faces are remembered about the same, numbers worse and letters better.  At least the room smelled nice for the afternoon!
