WHAT ARE TERPENES AND WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT?
You may have heard the word “terpenes” (a close relative of “terpenoids”) floating around conversations about THC, CBD, and aromatherapy.
There are many scientific ways to look at where terpenes come from and what they do, but in short, it’s this: terpenes are the organic compounds responsible for aroma and flavor in nature.
From plants, flowers, and trees, to certain foods and cannabis, terpenes range from floral to woodsy to citrusy. Terpenes are compounds created by plants themselves and have a range of physiological effects (without the psychoactive effects) in our bodies.
As with the holistic and supportive properties of essential oils, experiencing different terpenes can support the body with things like: relaxation, recovery, brain function, emotional well-being, and improved cellular function.
The addition of terpenes to any natural essential oil blend works to enhance the aroma and the benefits of the essential oils themselves.
When creating the SalTerrae intimate oil blends, we chose pure terpenes that would enhance the sensual experience of Passion, Allure, and Desire.
