Getting to Know Limonene

If you enjoy the smell of citrus fruits, chances are you’re a fan of limonene. This terpene is responsible for the uplifting, citrusy aroma of lemons, oranges, and other fruits. In addition to its pleasant scent, limonene may have some impressive health benefits.

Did you know that limonene is also a common ingredient in cleaning products and personal care items like shampoo and soap? That’s because limonene has some pretty amazing properties. Not only does it have a refreshing scent, but it’s also an effective disinfectant. Studies have shown that limonene can be just as effective as bleach at killing harmful bacteria!

In addition to its pleasant citrusy scent, limonene may have some impressive health benefits. These may include: reducing stress levels, improving immune function, fighting cancer cells and more. According to studies, inhaling limonene may reduce stress and anxiety by uplifting your mood and reduces cortisol levels in the body. When used topically, it may also help with skin conditions like psoriasis. When applied on the skin or consumed internally, studies have shown this terpene may boost immunity by stimulating white blood cell production.*
