Valencene – Terpene Profile
Named for the Valencia oranges in which it is found in high concentrations, Valencene is also produced in the peel and juice of many citrus plants and within other fruits and herbs. With its refreshingly sweet scents of citrus and wood, Valencene is a widely used component in fragrances, cosmetics and personal hygiene products. The terpene’s strong citrusy flavor is routinely added to desserts, dairy products and breakfast cereals. As a bronchodilator, Valencene can ease respiratory conditions, and recent research has demonstrated the terpene’s effectiveness against dermatological inflammations such as atopic dermatitis.
