Toxicological aspects and pharmaco-therapeutic properties of linalool, a natural terpene derivative of essential oils: Literature studies
AUTHOR(S): Rachid Soulimani and Rakesh Kumar Joshi
ABSTRACT:Essential oils are bioactive ingredients extracted from aromatic plants by distillation. The terpene derivatives present or extracted from these essential oils are considered in a double way, on the one hand as a support for pharmacological activities demonstrated from essential oils, on the other hand as natural biomolecules with high therapeutic potential. These are therefore natural substances or molecules, which have an important reservoir for preventing or treating many organic and functional disorders. We looked at one of these terpene derivatives, linalool, to identify and analyze the bibliographic data available and establish a balance sheet on the therapeutic, nutritional, cosmetic and environmental interests and benefit of this natural biomolecule.
