Pine Needle Essential Oil is derived from the needles of the Pine Tree, commonly recognized as the traditional Christmas tree. The scent of Pine Essential Oil is known for having a clarifying, uplifting, and invigorating effect.
In history, native Americans would also burn twigs and needles along with cedar and juniper for ritual smudging of sweat lodge, in order to purify the spirit.
The young macerated shoots were also added to the bath for nervous exhaustion, circulatory disorders, arthritis and skin disorders.
Benefits: Clarifying, uplifting, and invigorating.
