Linalool is an aroma chemical that is produced from natural and synthetic sources. It is present in a variety of aromatic plants that produce essential oils. This includes Lavender, Coriander and Cilantro, Bergamot, Oranges, Basil, Rosewood and a multitude of other plants that we consume on a day to day basis in our food, tea, beverages, confections, sauces and many more consumer good products that we put on and in our bodies.
There have been many studies on linalool and essential oils containing it. One such study (“Antidepressant activity of Litsea glaucescens essential oil: identification of β-pinene and linalool as active principles”) suggest that linalool and beta pinene in certain essential oils contribute to a sedating and anti-depressant effect.
