It includes α-Ocimene, cis-β Ocimene, and trans-β Ocimene. Ocimene is naturally found in many essential oils, such as basil oil, lavender oil, and clary sage oil, etc. Ocimene is industrially prepared by pyrolysis of alpha-Pinene under high temperatures.

It appears colorless liquid with floral and green odor and is widely used in fragrance formulation.
