TERPENES & SELF CARE: THE FUTURE FOR BETTER HAIR AND SKIN
Terpenes are everywhere in nature. People have been exposed to these organic compounds more often than they are aware of. Whenever chefs slice a piece of orange and they smell that citrusy aroma emanating from the fruit, terpenes are working their magic. Whenever hikers breathe in that rejuvenating smell of pine trees, Terpenes are doing their job. Yes, terpenes are responsible for the distinct aroma released by a specific plant or animal. But these compounds don't just exist to make nature more pleasant to people's olfactory nerves. As with everything present in nature, terpenes have a practical purpose to those that contain them. Plants used terpenes to ward off infectious germs and herbivores. More complex terpenes in animals also serve as natural protection against predators, among other purposes. The name terpene is related to the name termite, since termites emit a terpene as an alarm system.
The beauty industry is a vibrant, ever-changing trend machine, and terpenes are here to shake things up for the better. People want skin & hair care products that feel good, make skin look good, and products that smell good too. Luckily, terpenes can help hair & skin care products accomplish all three. Our company (DJW Essential Oils) is one of the few taking advantage of this beauty phenomenon by adding Terpenes for maximum hair and skin absorption and health.

TERPENES, CANNABIS AND SELF CARE
As we mentioned earlier, terpenes are produced by most plants--the cannabis plant just happens to produce way more than most. Just so you know, our terpenes are 100% cannabis free, contain NO THC OR CBD and can legally ship anywhere in the U.S. and in select international locations too. You can use terpenes without having to use cannabis (and vice versa).
