Boost mood why?  For depression, or just to boost mood?  Two places to start would be ST. John's Wort and 5-HTP, one or the other or both, but everything always depends on what you're treating.  A good book to read to get started is Natural Highs by Hyla Cass, a psychiatrist at UCLA.  The book is getting a bit dated, as new herbs are found globally all the time -- new to us, that is -- but is a good place to start as it also includes dosages and when to take different things for best results.
