What are terpenes? Actually, I love terpenes. We have all smelled terpenes before. It’s like stopping to smell the roses. The scent that the rose puts off is a terpene, the scent that the lemon or lime puts off is a terpene. The scent that a mango puts off is a terpene. Lavender is a terpene. Lavender is for calming, helping with sleeping at night, keeps patients’ anxiety down. Lililu is the correct term for terpenes. Piney, lemony – upbeat – helping with keeping you alert, alive, giving you some energy. We’re seeing a bunch of essential oils companies promoting the essential oils in the different sense those are also terpenes – again bringing the body back to balance. Stop and smell the roses stop and smell your medicine.
