Terpinolene is unique from its other terpene counterparts because unlike most terpenoids, terpinolene neither offers pain-relief or anti-inflammatory benefits. That being said, terpinolene has been shown to have several great properties of its own, and when used in tandem with other terpenes, can offer a holistic approach to healing. Its aroma is a balance of woody, piney tones with floral, citrus hints. Common plants that contain terpinolene include conifers, rosemary, lilacs, and sage.
- Anxiety & Insomnia Relief: For those suffering from high levels of anxiety or insomnia, terpinolene may be a solution. Studies have shown the terpene to be a central nervous system depressant, which can cause drowsiness and bring forth sleep as well as calm the body down to relieve tenseness and stress associated with anxiety.
- Antibacterial: Terpinolene has been found to exhibit antibacterial and antimicrobial activity by slowing the growth of bacteria as well as fungi.
- Anticancer: Quite a bit of research has revealed the anti-proliferation properties of terpinolene. It has the ability to downregulate cell proteins that can reduce the spread of cancer in the body as well as the generation of cancerous neuroblastoma cells.
