Steam distilled from the leaves/needles of the pinus sylvestris (Scots pine), this clear to pale yellow oil has a strong middle fragrance note that is clean, dry and balsamic with foresty turpentine notes. Mostly used to blend with other oils, it infuses the air with a fresh, evergreen fragrance and helps to support a healthy respiratory system. Often added to baths or sauna water to invigorate and stimulate the mind and chase away fatigue. Its aroma is physically grounding and relaxing, and diluted in carrier oil it can be rubbed on the chest to loosen phlegm or deep into sore muscles and joints after a good workout.

On the recommendation of the International Federation of Aromatherapists, TruGardens does not endorse taking essential oils internally unless specifically directed and prescribed by a qualified healthcare practitioner who is also trained in clinical aromatherapy. Avoid using during pregnancy, or if you suspect you might be pregnant, except on the advice of a qualified practitioner. Store all essential oil products safely out of reach of children. Essential oils are potent, and a little bit goes a long way. Do not use essential oils undiluted directly on the skin as they can cause irritation. Keep away from children, and do not apply near the eyes, mucous membranes, sensitive or broken skin. Every individual reacts differently to essential oils: Always perform a ‘test patch’ properly diluted in carrier oil to determine sensitivity.
