Farnesol – Terpene Profile
Farnesol is a terpene alcohol that can be found in over 30 essential oils, with an especially high concentration in the tropical Cabrueva oil. Thanks to its summery fruit flavors of peach, apricot and grapes, Farnesol is a frequent addition to desserts and candies, while its light aromatic blend of fruit and flowers have made it a key component of perfumery. The terpene has been clinically linked to the prevention of different types of cancer, in addition to exhibiting anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antispasmodic properties.
