Scots pine essential oil

 

                                                           Pinus sylvestris

The Scots Pine is a pioneer plant on bare or sparsely vegetated land of Haute-Provence, growing throughout the medium mountains of the Prealps.

It has been widely used to reforest areas with poor soils to allow growth of other species. The tree can reach 40 meters in height. Its long needles are harvested before snowfall, from spring to early winter.

 

The pure essential oil is then obtained by traditional distillation : slow extraction of the oil through steam. It is rich in a-pinene, b-pinene, d-3-carene, b-phellandrene, d-cadinene with beneficial tonic and antiseptic effects. It is hypotensive, and recognized since Hippocrates and Greek Antiquity to treat the patients of the respiratory system.

 

With its fresh fragrance of forest and pine sap, Scots Pine essential oil is well known to clear the bronchi. Dynamic, expectorant and invigorating, it makes the body more tonic and it stimulates the mind. It is soothing for sore muscles and joints, and can be used in a bath, for local massage or as a compress to ease discomfort. Its stimulating quality helps banish exhaustion and mental fatigue.
