Limonene, Found in Hemp, Provides Zesty Citrus to Aromatherapy

Because HempMeds® products are carefully formulated using all-natural herbal ingredients, users of our hemp oil products regularly ingest a range of botanical compounds, including terpenes.

Terpenes are a class of phytochemicals found in a wide variety of plants. Terpenes like limonene are often responsible for a plant’s aroma and flavor and may have a range of uses since they can interact with many types of cell receptors and enzymes. Limonene has been subject to many studies exploring its effects, and it has been shown to have a number of beneficial effects.

The terpene limonene is a main compound of citrus fruit like lemons, oranges, limes, and grapefruits. Though it has a noticeably more orange scent, it takes its name from the lemon, which contains the highest natural levels of limonene.

Limonene is used as a renewable solvent in environmentally conscious cleaning supplies. It is also used in the flavor and fragrance industries. Most interestingly, limonene was once tested as a potential rocket fuel since it is combustible. After each test fire, the room reportedly smelled like sweet citrus.  

The citrusy terpene is also popularly used in aromatherapy and by naturopaths for a wide variety of effects. Although limonene is found naturally in citrus fruits and cannabis, many also buy limonene rich essential oils to tap into the terpene’s benefits.
