Welcome to the forum alyeva and thanks for the lowdown on orange oil.By the way, limonene is a monociclic terpene, and we have discussed these health boosting phytochemicals in a few posts. I'm an avid collector of terpenes, they are stored for only a limited time though, then they go straight down my digestive system.


I eat limonene by chewing the skin of oranges and lemons. To my surprise, at the grocery store I talked to a couple of people who routinely eat the skin of oranges. I thought that was something done only by the members of this forum!
