Alpha-Pinene is an aromatic compound that smells a lot like, you guessed it a forest of pine trees. Science has shown that alpha pinene is one of the most powerful terpenes around, with promising properties. It improves alertness, increasing focus and energy. One of the reasons pinene packs such a powerful punch lies in its ability to cross the blood/brain barrier. Once it arrives in the brain, it alters neurotransmitters in a way that results in better memory. Alpha Pinene is sourced from conifer trees, herbs such as rosemary and sage, and found in some varieties of citrus. Alpha Pinene is known for its uplifting and energising effects, it is also suggested to offer relief from inflammation and act as a bronchodilator, meaning it opens airways allowing for easier breathing.

Using our terpenes:
Drop 2-10 Drops under your tongue 1-2 times a day.
Rub your choice of terpene on nonsensitive area of your body.
Add your choice of undiluted terpene to a diffuser.
Since our terpenes are of high concentration we recommend that you use a carrier oil to dilute, this will mean you use less, therefore more money in your pocket. This can be with any oil of your choice, such as coconut oil or hemp seed oil. When mixing your terpenes with an oil we suggest a 5% solution. So 5% terpene and 95% carrier oil.
To have a mix at 5% for a 10ml mixture:
Use 9.5ml of carrier oil (coconut oil) + 0.5ml (1%) of HerbBuddy Terpenes (approximately 15 drops)
1ml = 30 drops
