Alpha-Humulene is a chemical constituent in essential oils like Hops, Copaiba, Helichrysum Bracteiferum, and Ylang Ylang. (It used to be called Alpha-Caryophyllene.)
Alpha-Humulene has a strong anti-inflammatory effect (even stronger than Beta-Caryophyllene). It's also antioxidant and may protect against some cancers. I love to make blends using a combination of Alpha-Humulene and Beta-Caryophyllene!
