10ml Pine Sylvestris (Scots Pine) Essential Oil
Pine essential oil is the oil obtained from the tree commonly known as pine, which has the Latin or scientific name Pinus Sylvestris. Of course, it needs no description as many of us will have spent time before Christmas hanging baubles from its branches!
It is believed that this tree originated in Austria and Russia before spreading to different parts of the world. One of the reasons that pine oil has become such an important element in supplemental health is its availability. It is relatively easy to make pine essential oil, and pine trees grow in huge numbers all over the world.
The health benefits of Pine essential oil include
- its ability to reduce inflammation and associated redness
- protect against sinus infections and clear mucus and phlegm
- help skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis
- boost the immune system and fight fungal and viral infections
The numerous health benefits of Pine essential oil have made it one of the most important essential oils used in aromatherapy. Pine essential oil blends well with many other oils including cedarwood, rosemary, lavender and juniper and therefore it can be widely used in making aromatherapy preparations.
It has a very low toxicity for humans, so it is one of the safer essential oils, although some people are sensitive and can suffer from mild respiratory irritation when inhaling too much of this powerful oil.
Essential oils are powerful and highly concentrated. They can be harmful if not used carefully so it is important to use them safely. Do not take any oils internally and do not apply to the skin undiluted. Do not use any oils during pregnancy or if you have any medical issues without taking medical advice or under the guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils on children.
