Pine essential oil Pinus sylvestris, P. strobus, P. pinaster
bot. Pinus silvestris
Essential oils from various pine trees are loved not only for their wonderful, warm woody aroma, which is a real favourite for steaming indoors, but also for their aromatherapy properties. Pine essential oil is used in aromatherapy as a general body tonic to improve mood, and as one of the most effective body-strengthening oils in the winter, when the weather is changing, and during cold season. Pine essential oils are excellent for indoor steaming, freshening and purifying the air.
Pine essential oil is the smell of a Lithuanian pine forest, the scent of a silo in your home, the smell of warm, sun-warmed pine wood.
White/medium pine essential oil is distilled from needles and twigs, full of the freshness and strength of conifers. With a strong emotional impact, this essential oil connects us to the Earth and Heaven, and is a great "light catcher". It is also used in animal aromatherapy.

Use during cold season:
- For children, unless otherwise advised by a specialist: evaporate indoors, add when washing the house, put a couple of drops on the corner of a pillow or on a garment, dilute in vegetable oil at a ratio of 0.5-1% (e.g. 1-2 drops of essential oil to a teaspoon of almond oil), rub on the chest, soles of feet. If the essential oil is not irritating to the skin, dilute a little and apply to the pannus (not the mucous membrane);
- Babies do not need essential oils unless recommended by a specialist; they get their immunity through breast milk and aromatherapy can be used by other family members. If necessary, it is sufficient to just lightly diffuse essential oils in the room, add them when washing surfaces, and apply 1 drop to the floor away from the face. The baby's respiratory tract is very sensitive, so the smell should be barely perceptible in the room, and the rule of thumb is "less is better". It is safe for babies to use hydrolats – lavender, myrtle, tea tree, didramonium;
