Citronellol – Terpene Profile
Citronellol is a terpene that can be found in a variety of herbs and spices, including black pepper, lavender and chamomile, as well as in the essential oils of Buchu leaves and Mairehau roots. The rich aromas of rose, lemon and melon that characterize Citronellol have made it a mainstay ingredient of high-end fragrances. Though Citronellol may be best known for its insect-repelling capabilities, this terpene has an impressive track record of improving topical conditions. Moreover, as a diaphoretic, Cintronellol can aid digestive conditions and improve immune system operations.
