Shore Pine Essential Oil
(Pinus Contorta) - Pine family
Shore Pine grows abundantly in the Great Bear Rainforest along the coast and its preservation with long-term sustainability are important factors when we hand harvest the boughs, as we have done for thousands of years. Fortunately our steam distillation process with the Shore Pine has good yields, much better than most flower-based essential oils.
Pine needles are very common for traditional use in cold and flu remedies. The aromatic compounds found in pine needles and pine resin have strong anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties proven effective against respiratory infections and conditions.
One of the easiest ways to use or administer the oils are to add a few drops into your diffuser to circulate these healing compounds into the room you are in. If you are using the oils in a bath, it is best to add the oils to some sea-salt or epsom salts prior to adding to your bath water. This way the oils are brought into the water to naturally evaporate during your bath. Also, as our Shore Pine essential oil is 100% undiluted, it may be active on sensitive skin so best not to apply directly to the water or your skin. You can also add a few drops of the Shore Pine essential oil to a light bath oil so your skin with feel sliky smooth as you soak and breathe in the benefits during your bath. If you're having a steam or sauna you can add a few drops onto a dry washcloth to bring into the steam or shower with you to experience the beneficial effects.
Our Shore Pine essential oil is also a great mood lifter to give you some extra inspiration to start your day.
