Peppermint Before Bed??

I remember in elementary school they used to give us a peppermint before taking a test. Apparently it 'kept our brain awake and energized'. I was wondering, if lucid dreaming is keeping our mind awake while our body is sleeping, then would a mint before bed help enhance a lucid dream? Just a question, because I heard you don't lucid dream until deep in the night, during REM. What are your thoughts? I have never had a lucid dream before...

being awake is like being more alert or focused and that is one state, staying consious is the goal and that is differant.

I think a peppermint would make one concentrate on the taste in ones mouth rather than entering the mental state one needs to be in.
