This versatile terpene can be found in many plants, like chamomile, and may offer numerous benefits when used topically or consumed orally.
When it comes to finding natural remedies, looking to plants may be a great place to start. Chamomile tea is commonly consumed for its calming effects, which may be due in part to the bisabolol terpene. Products found in our stores also contain this compound, which some believe may contribute to the plant’s anti-inflammatory properties.
Bisabolol is a naturally occurring terpene also found in plants such as candeia, sweet basil and bolivian rose. It’s present in small amounts in some fruits and honey as well. Bisabolol has a floral aroma and is used as a fragrance ingredient in many cosmetics and personal care products. This versatile terpene may offer numerous benefits when used topically or consumed orally.
Bisabolol benefits are thought to come from its ability to interact with our body’s endocannabinoid system. This interaction helps to regulate things like inflammation, pain perception, and anxiety levels.* Additionally, bisabolol’s antioxidant effects may help protect our cells from damage caused by stressors like free radicals.**
Bisabolol is a type of terpene that offers a variety of benefits when applied topically. One of the most notable bisabolol benefits may be its ability to reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles. When applied to scars, bisabolol may help to fade their appearance over time. It does this by stimulating collagen production and increasing cell turnover. As we age, our skin cells turnover at a slower rate, which can lead to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.***
This compound may also have benefits when consumed orally, including improved digestion and relief from anxiety. When taken internally, bisabolol may help to stimulate the production of digestive juices and soothe the gastrointestinal tract. Additionally, this terpene has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Bisabolol is also known to be effective in treating anxiety disorders. This natural remedy may help to reduce symptoms of anxiety by promoting relaxation.*
