Pine: Pinus sylvestris (L.)
Why pine? The crisp aroma of pine essential oil can transport you to a fresh evergreen forest. The purifying qualities of pine make it ideal for use in homemade cleaners around the house. It is perfect to add to an inhalation blend, and it’s a lovely addition to your outdoor summer blend!
