About: The Wild Scotch Pine trees we use are grown organically in Bulgaria and have dark, purplish-gray bark and abundant resinous pine needles. The needles are harvested by hand and steam distilled to produce this amazing essential oil. Pine has a woody balsamic scent that is stimulating, vitalizing and cleansing. Diffuse or inhale Scotch Pine to support sinuses and lungs, healthy stress-response, and energy-levels. It can also be added to massage oils and salves to promote healthy muscles and joints.
