Fenchol (Natural, Food Grade, NON GMO)
Fenchol is closely related to borneol, and the two share many properties. Like borneol, fenchol is an antimicrobial and antifungal agent, with the ability to act as an anti-inflammatory. Neither fenchol nor borneol are known to act as sedatives or stimulants. Fenchol is found in basil and is used extensively in perfumery.
