What are Terpenes?
Long story short, terpenes are the chemicals that give things their unique smell. There are over 20,000 terpenes that determine these smells, either alone or combined with other hydrocarbon. An example of this is limonene, which is responsible for citrus scents. Different terpenes can have different influences on your body, such as energizing or relaxing effects.
These hydrocarbon may assist in boosting moods, relaxation, and assist with discomfort, just to name a few of the benefits. Think of lavender to assist relaxation, citrus may energize, and chamomile may calm.*
