Terpene Tuesday: Geraniol

Posted by Susan Lyn on 13th Apr 2021

TERPENE: Geraniol, juh-rey-nee-awl

The unique synthesis of geraniol is from within honey bees, who produce it in their scent glands as both a marker for nectar-bearing fruits and as a territorial mechanism to thwart off potentially dangerous colonies from creating a hive or taking over a pollination site. Thank you bees!
