Sabinene

Sabinene

Sabinene is one of the chemical compounds that contributes to the spiciness of black pepper and is a major constituent of carrot seed oil. It also occurs in tea tree oil at a low concentration. It is also present in the essential oil obtained from nutmeg and Clausena anisata.

Thujone is found in a number of plants, such as arborvitae (genus Thuja, hence the derivation of the name), Nootka cypress, some junipers, mugwort, oregano, common sage, tansy, and wormwood, most notably grand wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), usually as a mix of isomers in a 1:2 ratio. It is also found in various species of Mentha (mint).

In chemistry, esters are chemical compounds derived from an acid (organic or inorganic) in which at least one -OH (hydroxyl) group is replaced by an -O-alkyl (alkoxy) group.[1] Usually, esters are derived from a carboxylic acid and an alcohol. Glycerides, which are fatty acid esters of glycerol, are important esters in biology, being one of the main classes of lipids, and making up the bulk of animal fats and vegetable oils.

Terpinolene has a smokey or woody odor and is found in apple, cumin, lilac and tea tree. Terpinolene is also known as δ-terpinene, or delta terpinene. All terpinenes have the same molecular formula, weight and framework, but they differ in the placement of the carbon-carbon double bonds.

Benzoic acid /bɛnˈzoʊ.ɪk/, C7H6O2 (or C6H5COOH), is a colorless crystalline solid and a simple aromatic carboxylic acid. The name is derived from gum benzoin, which was for a long time its only known source.

Borneol is used in traditional Chinese medicine as moxa. An early description is found in the Bencao Gangmu.  Borneol is a component of many essential oils,[4] and it is a natural insect repellent.[5]

S-(+)-Carvone is the principal constituent (60-70%) of the oil from caraway seeds (Carum carvi),[6] which is produced on a scale of about 10 tonnes per year.[3] It also occurs to the extent of about 40-60% in dill seed oil (from Anethum graveolens), and also in mandarin orange peel oil. R-(–)-Carvone is also the most abundant compound in the essential oil from several species of mint, particularly spearmint oil (Mentha spicata), which is composed of 50-80% R-(–)-carvone.[7] Spearmint is a…
