Reminiscent of fragrant Christmas trees or a brisk walk through the winter forest, Pine Essential Oil brings a woodsy aroma to your home. From trees originating in Europe and Asia, the pine's needles are steam distilled producing rich, sweet tones. Pine is considered kid friendly and can be used to support the respiratory system, encourage healthy skin and urinary systems, and soothe cranky joints.
Pine is first mentioned in historical texts by Hippocrates, and he notes that it can be used to help massage joints and muscles. Pine Essential Oil has also been used in cleaning supplies because of the clean and crisp aroma it produces, along with the antiseptic nature that helps decrease the presence of microbes. Pine pairs well with Cedarwood, Citronella, Clary Sage, Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Grapefruit, Juniper, Lavender, Lemon, Marjoram, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sage, Tea Tree and Thyme.
Topical: Mixed with a carrier oil, Pine Essential Oil can be rubbed on the chest to support respiratory health. As a massage oil, it can be rubbed on achy joints and muscles to help soothe and relax. Pine Essential Oil should always be diluted to a concentration of 1% essential oil (1 drop of Pine to 1 teaspoon of carrier oil).
Diffuser: Pine Essential Oil can be diffused by itself or in blends to help support respiratory systems, bring soothing and relaxation to a room, and help cleanse the air during times of illness.
Cleaning: For an antimicrobial boost that is also kid friendly, add a few drops of Pine Essential Oil to your homemade natural cleaning recipes or your mop bucket!
Pregnancy/Lactation: While Pine Essential Oil may be generally considered appropriate for use while pregnant and nursing, we do not advise using it unless you first check with your healthcare practitioner and certified aromatherapist to ensure it is appropriate for your specific situation.

There are just a few oils that I feel like I must always have on hand, and Pine has now become one of them. We received our first bottle at the perfect time, right in the middle of our son's head cold. Pine immediately helped to loosen up his sinuses and lungs like nothing else could. I diffused it and mixed it in oil for massages. No, he wasn't immediately better, but it created the turning point for him to start getting better. It seemed as though it allowed everything else we were doing (herbs, teas, and supplements) to work a little bit better just because the mucus and junk was no longer constantly stuck. I didn't even realize how stuffy my nose was until the pine made it run! I look forward to using it in my home-made cleaners too. I will definitely make sure this one is always on my shelf!
How do your essential oils compare to the very popular "home party" ones?
What oil do you dilute the blends?

We believe our essential oils are of top quality and we post the GC/MS test results for each batch to back it up. Show them to your aromatherapist and see what they say. Most "home party" or network marketing oil companies won't release their GC/MS test results, and it kinda leaves you wondering "why?" When independent testing has been done, unfortunately the popular companies have not been blemish free. That's not to say it couldn't happen to any company on occasion, but I remember one case where one of the biggest companies was caught putting a synthetic into their peppermint oil to make it smell sweeter. That doesn't get in their by accident. So, be careful, and try not to only get your information from somebody who has a financial interest in you buying their oils - even us. Nobody knows everything and nobody is perfect despite what they might like to project. But we try to get the best, for a reasonable price.
