Hey guys, welcome to Terpene Tuesdays at Hempire Co. I’m your terp Smith Travis and today we’ll be talking about a few terpenes you might utilize in your daily life.
Limonene – one of the most abundant terpenes found in nature. It is found in citrus fruits– but more specifically – high in concentration in the peel of an orange. It is commonly used as a food additive to produce a sweet lemon flavor and you may be surprised to find it in a lot of your household items like soaps, shampoos, and lotions. It’s also amenable to your cleaning products – maybe even your favorite perfume or cologne.
Limonene has shown heart disease-fighting properties and has proven itself as an effective anti-inflammatory and is commonly used to help anxiety and depression and I personally find that using it aromatically is very focusing and energizing. Simply eating an orange or enjoying squeezed lemon into a glass of water are great ways to incorporate Limonene into your daily routine.
