Table II.16: Farnesol and Farnesene Compounds (ii.810131561-68)

Alpha- and beta-farnesene are antioxidant sesquiterpene compounds found in turmeric oil. Farnesol is also found in turmeric. Related to farnesene compounds, farnesol is a sesquiterpene with a hydrogen and oxygen molecule attached to it. This creates a sesquiterpene alcohol compound.

Farnesene compounds and farnesol are also found in other herbs and spices that have beneficial effects such as preventing cancer, stress relief, treating colds and flu, getting rid of pimples, and help for arthritis, wrinkles, and thinning hair. These include anise, bergamot, black pepper, chamomile, chaste-tree, cumin, frankincense, ginseng, gotu kola, hops, jasmine, lemongrass, oranges, sandalwood, saw palmetto, and ylang ylang.
