What are Terpenes?

Terpenes/Terpenoids are responsible for the aromatics and flavors found in essential plant oils. TERPINATOR® maximizes a plant's ability to produce terpenes/terpenoids. TERPINATOR® accomplishes this by promoting the natural enlargement of the plant's plant-oil producing resin glands while also increasing the number of gland sites.

Common Terpenes

Two common odor molecules, or "terpenes," are the lemon-scented limonene and the grapefruit-scented myrcene. Terpenes occur in a variety of oil-producing plants. Researchers have noted the power of scents to affect our mood. For example, people describe a feeling of "sunny happiness" when smelling the terpene limonene. When ingested, terpenes can have a biological effect on our bodies—such as when we feel relaxed after drinking the plant oils found in mint tea.
