Pine (Pinus sylvestris) has a refreshing, invigorating, fresh-forest aroma. First investigated by Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, for its benefits to the respiratory system, pine is soothing for stressed muscles and joints when used in massage.
It shares many of the same properties as Eucalyptus globulus, and the action of both oils is enhanced when they are blended.
Brief History: Drs. Penoel and Fanchomme described pine oil’s antiseptic properties in their medical textbook. American Indians stuffed mattresses with pine to repel lice and fleas. It was used to treat lung infections and even added to baths to revitalize those suffering from mental or emotional fatigue.
Although pine and pine needle oil is considered non-toxic and non-irritant, it is often mixed with turpentine to lower the cost of the oil. This has caused irritations and allergic reactions. To avoid this problem, buy only the highest quality pine oil, such as is sold here.
Action: Hormone-like, antidiabetic, cortisone-like, sexual stimulant, hypertensive (high blood pressure), anti-infections, antifungal and antiseptic.
Pine helps soothe mental stress, relieve anxiety, freshen and deodorize a room and revitalize the entire body. Indications: Asthma, pulmonary infections, bronchitic, diabetes, infections (severe), rheumatoid arthritis, and sinusitis.
How to use: For dietary, aromatic, or topical use. When using as a supplement, dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid such as goat’s or rice milk.
Possible skin sensitivity. If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Do not use near fire, flame, heat or spark. Dilution recommended for both topical and internal use. Dilute before using on sensitive areas such as the face, neck, genital area, etc. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid using on infants and very small children. Avoid oil adulterated with turpentine, a low-cost but potentially hazardous filler.
