What it does for you
Pine has been used in traditional medicine for centuries, but nowadays Pine scents and oil extracts are quite abundant in everyday items. These include floor, furniture cleaners, disinfectants, and air fresheners. Nevertheless, oil extracts are not the same as essential oils, because the extracts don’t carry the same properties.
Pine Needle Essential Oil may have these benefits:
- Air freshener and aromatherapy for homes, offices, and vehicles.
- Antimicrobial properties, but talk to a doctor before using it for this.
- Reduce inflammation.
PubMed Central, a highly respected database from the National Institutes of Health, gives us more information about some of the different studies regarding the health benefits of Pine and its components:
