A clear mobile liquid with a very characteristic pine scent with fresh top note with a distinct sweetness.
Used extensively in pharmaceutical preparations for cough and cold medicines, vaporizing fluids and nasal decongestants.
Also for room fresheners, disinfectants, soaps and detergents.
To Quote Gabriel Mojay: Pine oil is just as effective as rosemary and thyme for combating fatigue and nervous exhaustion.
The energetic qualities of pine oil are warming and drying and it tonifies Qi. Pine may be used to clear a meditation space especially if the room or space cannot be devoted exclusively for this purpose.
Personally, I love pine, it is very calming for me and yes, helps my breathing. An oil I would not be without.
In the Native Herbal Tradition, White Pine is notably used to treat cough, colds, cuts and wounds, inflammation and respiratory disorders.
