You only have to picture yourself walking through a pine forest to understand the qualities of this incredible essential oil. An oil of uncompromising will, endurance and strength pine has been used for centuries to help lift self-esteem and confidence and awaken one’s spirit. Here are a number of ways you can embrace its virtues and use it in your everyday life for more focus, clarity, strength, endurance and power.

The long needles of a pine tree indicate its direct power and qualities and this part of the tree is used in pharmaceutical preparations particularly for coughs, colds and flu symptoms.  Blended with oils like peppermint, spearmint, rosemary, lavender or lemon make it one of the best expectorants, antiseptic and antibacterial oils.

One of the best ways to help clear the sinuses and phlegm from the chest is by doing an inhalation. Place 3 drops of pine, 1 drop of lemon and 1 drop of black pepper into a bowl of warm to boiling water. Place your head over the bowl, place a towel over the head, close your eyes and breathe these precious vapors deep into the lungs, nice and slowly for at least 5minutes.

You could use these same oils in a diffuser to keep any bugs at bay and help create a more pleasant antiseptic environment.

Pine has a very stimulating effect on the circulatory system and can be used in a carrier oil like macadamia or sweet almond oil with oils of lavender and wintergreen as a sports liniment. You can place 2 drops of pine, 2 drops of marjoram and 2 drops of grapefruit into a warm bath and add 1 cup of magnesium salts to help reduce muscle aches and pains, and tired muscles with a build up of lactic acid.

A very tonifying oil, pine is known to support kidney and lung function and help alleviate mental fatigue and nervous exhaustion. When recovering from a long-term illness or injury pine can help increase strength, resilience and endurance. One drop massaged into the kidney region is said to be a wonderful adrenal stimulant and support.

Pine, lemon and rosemary make an excellent combination when inspiration, clear thinking and new ideas are needed. Simply place 2 drops of each into a diffuser or vaporizer, take some nice deep breaths and focus on the outcome you are wanting.

One drop each of pine, lavender and chamomile into a shallow bath is ideal to support the relief of cystitis.

A special festive blend would include frankincense, myrrh, orange and pine and make a beautiful blend to use in a diffuser for the month of December.

Pine and orange are two of the best and most effective cleaning oils both containing d-limonene which is an excellent disinfectant and grease remover. Pine is often used in room fresheners, disinfectants, detergents, soaps and body washes given its amazing purifying qualities.

Think back again to the incredible pine forest. A place for inspiration, focus, clarity and clear thinking. Pine is certainly an oil you could use in meditation and prayer.

Pine Oil Aroma Card quote says:

‘Feeling inspired, I go into today invigorated and alert, ready for anything.’

And the four words to remind you of the virtues of Pine are: stimulating, inspiring, soothing and warming.
