what else you should know

essential oil

There are more than 100 species of pine, but our pine essential oil is made from Scotch pine (Pinus balsamea), one of the most abundant naturally occurring species in North America. Early European settlers learned of the beneficial uses of the tree’s needles and its oil from Native Americans, who used both to deter fleas and lice and to address muscle aches and joint pain.

Today, pine essential oil is an ingredient in many over-the-counter and prescription analgesic ointments, antifungal creams, nasal decongestant sprays, and cough and cold medicines.
