Pine is a great oil to use in steam showers as it is invigorating, relaxing and great for sinuses, phlegm and other respiratory issues. It has been shown to boost the immune system and is effective at killing germs making it a great addition to linen sprays and DIY cleaners. It also has the ability to kill fleas and lice!
Product Abstract: This evergreen tree can grow up to 40 meters (130 feet) and has a flat crown. The bark is a reddish-brown that is deeply fissured with needle-like gray-green leaves that grow in pairs, orange-yellow flowers, and pointed brown cones. It is not as readily available as regular pine trees accounting for the price discrepancy. It was used by the Native Americans to prevent scurvy and the needles were used to stuff mattresses and to repel lice and fleas. The ancient Egyptians used the kernels in their cooking, just as today we enjoy the highly nutritious pine nut.
Cautions: Dilute well before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
