Beta Cedrene – Terpene Profile
Along with α-Cedrene, β-Cedrene is one of two isomers that form Cedrene, a sesquiterpene derived from the essential oils of cedar. Like α-Cedrene, β-Cedrene’s crisp scents of pine and wood have contributed to its widespread use in fragrances, cosmetics, while its gentle sweet taste has seen it incorporated in beverages, sweeteners and baked goods. Similar to its isomer twin, β-Cedrene is a valued compound in traditional and holistic medicine. Studies have confirmed its therapeutic potency as anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and diuretic, among its many medicinal qualities. Cedrene is still being researched for its effects on testosterone and fat loss, but preliminary evidence is promising.
