Pinus sylvestris, known as Scotch Pine in the UK, and as Norway Pine in Scandinavia, is grown all over Europe. The oil is extensively used for disinfectants, room sprays and other household products. Absolute Aromas has selected a fine oil from Siberia, the major producer of pinus sylvestris. The fresh, resinous aroma of this oil makes it a very good choice for steam inhalations during the cold winter months. Add 1 drop each of Pine, Eucalyptus and Lavender to a bowl of boiling water. Lean over the bowl, with a towel covering your head and shoulders and inhale the vapours for a couple of minutes. A few drops of Pine and Mandarin in an oil burner will enhance the Christmas atmosphere of any room during the festive season.
