Terpenes and Topicals

Can adding terpenes to your topical products, including lotions and soaps, be beneficial? As it turns out, the answer is yes—assuming you add the terpenes to the right base product.

People have turned attention towards terpene oils recently in order to figure out what exactly they can do for us. While we now know what these terpenes are good for, can we apply them or use them any which way we want to get results? Patients who have used topical products on their skin report having a positive reaction, so today, we would like to discuss the ways that terpenes can be used on the skin.

Experimenting with Terpenes

If you are interested in making your own beauty products at home to assist with lessening inflammation or pain, terpenes may be the way to go. Consider adding these diluted terpene oils to your bath items. We recommend lotions, face washes, and even bath salts to take full advantage of the healing properties. Just be sure to choose pure terpenes to avoid mixing in any hazardous or unpleasant chemicals that may have little results.

Also, if you are going to look to buy a topical product that contains terpenes, beware! Make sure that the rest of the product has been created effectively. If terpenes are combined with the wrong products, your body will not be able to absorb the terpenes and reap the benefits. If you’re on the hunt for maximum absorption, it may be best to make your own or do research to find a company that uses high-quality terpenes.
