Present throughout a variety of species of fruits and plants such as basil, parsley, mangoes, and of course, cannabis, ocimene is a monoterpene known for its pleasantly tropical and woody bouquet. The aroma of this oil is so fragrant in fact, that it is commonly used in perfumes.
- Decongestant & Expectorant: Ocimene has been found to alleviate head and chest congestion, and can loosen mucus in the lungs to help you breathe easier. If you are sick or suffering from allergies, this terpene may be able to offer some relief from your symptoms.
- Antifungal: Because it is naturally produced by plants to inhibit fungal growth, it comes as no surprise that ocimene has some great antifungal properties.
