Sabinene Hydrate – Terpene Profile
Sabinene hydrate is a monoterpene found in the oils of spearmint and peppermint, as well as in a selection of spicy herbs and citrus fruits. With notes of citrus and pine, sabinene hydrate’s aroma profile is close to that of certain conifer terpenes. In addition to its use as a minty, refreshing scent in the fragrance industry, sabinene hydrate’s winning flavor combination of citrus, wood and mint adds zest to beverages, desserts and candies. Research suggests that the monoterpene is effective against cancer but can also alleviate some of the more unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy without damaging its efficacy.
