What is Alpha-Pinene?

Alpha-Pinene is arguably one of the most well known terpenes for its prevalence in essential oils, cleaning products, perfumes, air fresheners, and much more. Alpha-pinene, not to be confused with beta-pinene, is the primary terpene in coniferous trees–most notably, pine trees. Another common source of α-pinene is rosemary. Compared to many other terpenes, this one is unique in that it is an alkene with one of its two isomers being pinene.
