If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Pine Needle essential oil and its many wonders.
The twigs and needles of Pinus sylvestris are steam distilled to produce an essential oil that’s warm, woody, strong, and crisp. Pine Needle is a middle note oil that blends well with Citronella, Clary Sage, Coriander, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Juniper, Lavender, Myrrh, Rosemary, Spikenard, and Tea Tree.
You’re walking down a country road, snow is gently swirling all around you, your feet leave a warm reminder of you and where you’ve come from, and the intoxicating aroma of fresh Pine fills the air…
Wouldn’t it be grand if you could bring this relaxing and invigorating feeling with anywhere you go and all year long? With Pine Needle essential oil you can. In addition to its delightful aroma, this oil has been shown to reduce stress and promote alertness. It can also be used to help with mild physical pain by minimizing inflammation and redness. Try this recipe for bath crystals. When added to lotion or body butter it can help alleviate eczema and psoriasis. Its ability to fight free radicals, which prevent healthy skin, make it beneficial for use on skin prone to dryness and mild acne.
Not only can Pine Needle help boost the health of your skin, but of your respiratory system as well, by clearing mucus and phlegm and boosting the immune system. Combining it with Eucalyptus or Tea Tree and adding to a diffuser or room spray help emit these properties to any room. It can be used in homemade cologne or perfume—its woody aroma make it a great selection for men.
