What is Myrcene?
Myrcene is a monoterpene present in many plants ranging from parsley to hops. Myrcene is credited with giving hops its relaxing effects. This monoterpene’s smell is described as pleasant and is often compared to cloves. When isolated, myrcene is a pale yellow, oily liquid.
Myrcene is commonly used in perfumes and colognes but not for reasons you may think. While myrcene does have a pleasing scent, it is generally used to stabilize other aromatic compounds in perfumes. One unique characteristic of myrcene is its ability to enhance the effects of other terpenes.
