Pine essential oil is a derivative of pine tree needles, which are known for their strong aroma. In fact, one sniff of pine oil might remind you of a Christmas tree.
As with other essential oils, pine has been used in traditional medicine for centuries.
Pine oil uses and benefits:
Due to its aroma, pine essential oil is notable for its uplifting yet clearing scent. Because of this, pine essential oil can work as a room scent in a diffuser as well as in cleaning solutions.
Air fresheners and aromatherapy
Pine oil extracts are often used in air fresheners for homes, offices, and vehicles. Essential oils, on the other hand, may be used in aromatherapy to create an uplifting and invigorating atmosphere — not just a nice scent.
Inhaling oils like pine may also have clearing effects in the case of illnesses like the common cold.
Pine essential oil may be used topically (applied to the skin) as an antimicrobial, similar to tea tree oil. In theory, the oil could be used for minor skin infections and burns.
Pine essential oil is also touted as having anti-inflammatory effects. Such effects could do two things: (a) Ease symptoms of inflammatory skin conditions, such as acne, eczema, and rosacea, and (b) Alleviate pain from related health conditions, such as arthritis and muscle pain.
