Botanical Terpene Blend

Botanical Terpene Blend

Terpenes are volatile aromatic molecules found in essential oils that give plants their unique aromas and flavors. They are used in the plant’s physiology to lure pollinators and to protect from insects and animal predators, fungus, and microbes. The terpenes used in the Botanical Terpene blend are extracted from a variety of plants using steam distillation and are tested to be free of solvents. Alpha-Pinene, found in Rosemary, Pines, and Conifers, offers an invigorating woodsy aroma of fresh pines and Christmas. Myrcene, found in Bay, Thyme, and Lemongrass, has a musky and clove-like smell. Spicy and woody-smelling Beta-Caryophyllene is found in Black Pepper, Cloves, Hops, Basil, Rosemary, and Oregano. Citral and D-Limonene, both refreshing and invigorating, are found in Citrus fruit; Citral is also found in Lemongrass and Lemon Myrtle. Linalool has a fresh floral smell and is found in Lavender, Basil, Hops, and Bay leaf. Eucalyptol smells like menthol and is found in Eucalyptus.
