Majestic pine offers many gifts and has been used in many ways throughout history. Pine resin was part of the Egyptian mummification process. Pine kernels were also baked into breads by the Egyptians. Pine needles were made into bedding by North American Indians and in the Swiss Alps for tension. Pine needles have been burned as incense and made into a beer to prevent scurvy. Pine sawdust has been used as a general panacea poultice. Red pine is rich in magnificent monoterpenes, especially alpha and beta pinenes, with their affinity to the lungs, kidneys, endocrine and adrenal cortex. Energetically the essence is drying, revitalizing, detoxifying and strengthening.
Pine needle distillations are known for their fresh fragrance that disinfects and decongests the air. In Aromatherapeutic applications pine a popular choice for balancing breathing, reviving wellbeing and mental clarity, and in massage for maintaining muscles.
