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 terpenes.  An example of this is limonene, which is the terpene that is responsible for citrus scents. Different terpenes can have different influences on your body, such as energizing or relaxing effects.


Benefits of Terpenes

Terpenes can help boost your mood, relax you, reduce inflammation, and assist with pain relief, just to name a few of the benefits.  Think of lavender to relax, citrus to energize, and chamomile for calming. Some terpenes can even aid in reducing inflammation and pain relief.
