Pine essential oil has been used for thousands of years to help improve the health of the body and as a natural cleanser. It is said that even Hippocrates noted the strong healing effects of pine on the respiratory system.
Pine essential oil can be used topically to help relieve muscle and joint pain. Include a little pine in your CBD salves or body creams/ointments/rubs to boost the soothing effect. Pine also blends well with eucalyptus to creating a cooling and soothing effect.
Pine essential oil is a natural cleanser and bacteria fighter, which makes it a great addition to products to help with acne, eczema, psoriasis, itching and Athlete’s Foot. Try creating a blend with pine essential oil in your melt-and-pour soap bars, foot soaks using our Epsom salts, facial cleansing oils, scalp treatments and foot creams.
Pine essential oil may have at one time gotten a bad name when everyone cleaned their house with Pine Sol. I think you either loved the smell or hated it. I personally loved it as I love the high desert and the smell of pine and cedar trees. Now you can blend pine with something like cedar, sage and vanilla to create a great cleansing essential oil blend. Add this to your laundry as a pure essential oil, or create a laundry bar using melt-and-pour soap bases, or a household spray cleanser, or diffuser blend to freshen the air and rid bad smells.
5 and 10 pound sizes are shipped in BPA free, high density polyethylene containers that are designed for long-term storage of essential oils.
Do not apply directly to skin. Most essential oils are not designed to be applied directly, rather they are designed to be mixed with a carrier oil such as our organic sunflower or organic jojoba oils. Always perform a small patch test when applying to skin.
Do not take internally unless you are licensed to apply them as such.
