Pine Needle Essential Oil
Pine Needle, Pinus sylvestris, steam distilled from the sweet, evergreen scented needles, is believed to promote a healthy immune system and was used by ancient Romans and Greeks to treat respiratory problems and muscular aches.
Pine oil is a rubefacient, meaning that it increases blood flow when rubbed on the skin. When added to a carrier oil and massaged into the skin, pine oil promotes circulation, helps soothe inflammation, relieves muscle fatigue, soothes sore muscles, and helps ease inflamed joints. Pine essential oil also helps soothe itchy skin, which may be helpful for eczema or other skin irritations.
A true disinfectant, Pine oil may be helpful for fighting infections. Adding pine oil to a facial steam may help ease the symptoms of bronchitis, coughs and sinus problems.
In hair care, Pine Essential Oil is reputed to cleanse, enhance the hair’s natural smoothness and shine, contribute moisture, and protect against dandruff as well as lice.
