Botanical Name: Pinus sylvestris
Traditionally used for minor joint aches and pain, to support healthy lung, urinary and lymphatic function, to soothe occasional laryngitis and minor skin issues.
A top note with a strong aroma, Pine Organic Essential Oil has a fresh forest smell.
This evergreen tree can grow up to 40 meters (130 feet) and has a flat crown. The bark is a reddish-brown that is deeply fissured with needle-like gray-green leaves that grow in pairs, orange-yellow flowers, and pointed brown cones. It is not as readily available as regular pine trees accounting for the price discrepancy. It was used by the Native Americans to prevent scurvy and the needles were used to stuff mattresses and to repel lice and fleas. The ancient Egyptians used the kernels in their cooking, just as today we enjoy the highly nutritious pine nut.
Our Pine comes from carefully tended trees in Bulgaria.
Can be applied topically at a 3% dilution (3 drops per 1 ounce of carrier oil); 1 drop per 1 hour in a diffuser for essential oils: do not ingest; contact with eyes should be avoided.
