Pine oil uses and benefits

Due to its aroma, pine essential oil is notable for its uplifting yet clearing scent. Because of this, pine essential oil can work as a room scent in a diffuser as well as in cleaning solutions.

The internet is full of anecdotes and articles that claim pine essential oil can offer more health benefits than just a nice scent. However, most of these claims lack clinical evidence.

Air fresheners and aromatherapy

Pine oil extracts are often used in air fresheners for homes, offices, and vehicles. Essential oils, on the other hand, may be used in aromatherapy to create an uplifting and invigorating atmosphere — not just a nice scent.

Inhaling oils like pine may also have clearing effects in the case of illnesses like the common cold.

Skin antimicrobial

Some proponents claim that pine essential oil may be used topically (applied to the skin) as an antimicrobial, similar to tea tree oil. In theory, the oil could be used for minor skin infections and burns.

However, research indicates that pine oil doesn’t have much antimicrobial activity. Talk to a doctor before using pine oil for this purpose.

How to use pine essential oil

Pine essential oil can be used in a number of different ways, including inhalation and topical variations. Talk to a doctor about the following methods.

Use a diffuser

Diffusing is one of the most popular ways to use essential oils.

You can make a quick, safe room scent by putting a few drops of pine essential oil into a diffuser filled with water. Once the device is turned on, the diffuser then releases cool steam.

You can purchase a diffuser online.

Inhale it

If you don’t have a diffuser on hand, you may still reap the aromatic benefits of pine essential oil through inhalation.

Simply pour a couple of drops on a tissue, and hold the tissue in front of your face while you inhale deeply through your nose.

You can also try holding the bottle of essential oil underneath your nose.

Apply it topically
