Spending time away from technology and busy schedules to find peace in nature is so amazingly transformative. Very few essential oils offer a majestic forest fragrance like Pine oil.
With its earthy and fresh aroma, Pine essential oil invigorates. Many men’s fragrances include layers of Pine to create an alluringly woodsy aroma. Because it stimulates the senses, Pine essential oil benefits the mind and can bring mental clarity while sharpening thinking.
There are many varieties of Pine grown throughout Europe, Russia and Austria, the most common being P. Sylvestris. The needles, branches and cones are all put through a steam distillation method.
