What is Nerolidol?

Nerolidol aka trans-nerolidol is a terpene found in many strong aromatic plants such as jasmine, tea tree, and lemongrass, and it can also be found in some cannabis strains. It’s known for a floral aroma with notes of citrus, apples, and rose. It is often used as a fragrance or food additive. Researchers have also found evidence that nerolidol has sedative, anti-anxiety, antimicrobial, anti-parasitic, anti-oxidant, and pain-relieving properties, and may be an insect repellent.

Trans-nerolidol is a secondary terpene found in many strong aromatics like jasmine, tea tree, and lemongrass. As such, it delivers a subdued and nuanced floral aroma with notes of fruity citrus, apples, and rose.

  • Inhibits growth of leishmaniasis
