Terpenes are the aromatic organic compounds found in plants that bring forth strong tastes, smells, and effects. Terpenes have numerous utilization opportunities, such as for their medical benefits, in perfumes, in incense, and even in cleaners. Terpenes enhance the flavor, and smell of your oil and heighten the effects through the entourage effect, but more on that later.
Since terpenes are so strong on their own, we must dilute them in other carrier oils as it could be very dangerous for your health. Terpenes mix well with other natural oils such as coconut oil, propylene glycol, and most other carrier oils. When mixing, it is good to keep about a 1-6% terpene concentration, depending on desired result.
