The needles of Pinus sylvestris produce an invaluable essential oil that assists in cleaning, purifying, stimulating and refreshing ourselves and our homes. When we think of the stately pine tree, we think of the fresh air we breath when standing in a conifer forest. The service that great conifers provide for our planet is imprinted in each pine tree as protective plant intelligence, which we then preserve by distilling into essential oils.
Pine oil, in its many varieties, might be among the most common and most recognized household fragrance, so popular is this aroma in the world of disinfectants and deodorizers. The essential oil of pine is a much more refined version of the more crude, often synthetic variety. A superior cleanser, pine essential oil can be used for keeping our homes and the air we breath fresh and clean.
In aromatherapy, pine oil is known for its uplifting and purifying qualities, which support nearly every system of the body. Known to have an uplifting, cleansing effect which can dispel worry and tiredness, invigorating pine oil can clear the air and release negative emotions. You can also keep pine running in your diffuser to help promote winter wellness for your whole family.

Interesting Pine Essential Oil Information:
Pine has a rich and multi-faceted history. Historically, mattresses were stuffed with the needles of the pine tree to help repel lice and fleas. The ancient Egyptians used pine kernels in their cooking. Crude pine resin is distilled to produce rosin (used to give violinists' bows the proper "stick") and turpentine, a solvent most closely associated with paint. It is also extensively cultivated for its wood, tar and pitch, and is often used in building and construction. Pine is also a common fragrance component in soaps, detergents, cosmetics, and toiletries. This variety of pine (Pinus sylvestris), also known as Scotch pine, contains 50% - 90% monoterpenes, which endow it with its characteristic house cleaning abilities.
