Limonene is the second most common terpene in nature.

It is mostly found in citrus fruits.

It is the precursor of many other mono-terpenes.

Limonene has both anti-fungal and anti-insect roles in plants.

Limonene has an uplifting and invigorating smell, which we associate with cleanliness and freshness.

Interestingly, limonene has shown to be active against fungal skin infections and the main bacteria involved in acne.

Limonene has shown to have anti-anxiety and anti-depressive effects in rats and humans.

It's been found to increase dopamine and serotonin levels, which both aid in mood regulation.
