Commonly found in many flowers and plants such as mint, cinnamon, and rosewood, linalool is a terpene that emits a floral scent similar to lavender with gentle hints of citrus. It’s this iconic lavender scent that makes it such a contender for stress relief among its other health benefits.
- Anxiety & Anti-Depressant: Much as lavender is notable for its stress-relief qualities, research has found that linalool is especially effective in tapering levels of anxiety and symptoms of depression. The sedative properties in linalool that promote stress relief also act as a powerful sleep aid which can help those suffering from insomnia get a good night’s rest.
- Anticonvulsant: In the same vein of anxiety and stress relief, linalool has great pain-relieving and muscle-relaxing effects. By reducing the intensity of the chemical that’s responsible for muscle contraction, acetylcholine, this terpene is able to reduce muscle spasms and convulsions.
- Antiseptic: Linalool is widely used in cleaning products such as detergents and shampoos—not only because of its gentle scent, but because it also has antimicrobial properties.
