Our Pinyon Pine Essential Oil is steam distilled from the aromatic needles and twigs of the Pinus edulis tree, gathered by hand here in the desert of southeastern Utah.
Pinyon Pine trees grow at 4,000-8,000 feet and are native to the Four Corners region of the US. Along with a long, rich history in Native American culture and folklore as the "tree of life," it has been used for many purposes in the past, from food to medicine, tea, tonics, and in ceremonies.
The aroma of this essential oil is distinctly different from other conifer oils; the fragrance has soft, floral, citrus fruit top notes, a middle range of crisp, smooth pine, and a deep, woody, resinous base.
Comes in an amber glass bottle with a dropper insert.
In aromatherapy, Pinyon Pine Essential Oil strengthens and rejuvenates. The essential oil is known for its uplifting and purifying qualities, which can have a cleansing effect that dispels worry and tiredness, invigorates and energizes. It can also clear the air and release negative emotions.
Medicinally, along with helping to relieve sinus and respiratory congestion and promoting healthy lung and airway activity, Pinyon Pine Essential Oil can sooth coughs and muscle spasms. It can also help relieve joint and muscle pain and inflammation as well as promote healthy circulation, boost a compromised immune system, support healthy adrenal function, reduce the risk of fungal infection, ease sore throats, and relieve headaches. This essential oil is also skin healing and rejuvenating and can help treat cuts, wounds, bug bites, and burns.
