This Pine of the great white north proudly populates Canadian forests. Our oil is lovingly collected from the pristine, silver green needles of this ancient tree, which can live to be over 400 years old. The Iroquois,Ojibwa, and Chippewa Native Americans used the Pine tree for a variety of purposes, including teas from the needles and using the soft inner bark as sustenance during cold winter months.
The paramount essence of Pine draws on the power of centuries of use by people who lived in harmony with the natural world around them. To inhale our Grand White Pine Essential Oil is to instantly connect on the deepest level with hundreds of years of tree wisdom with its restorative assistance and present time perfection. Revered by Native Americans as the “Tree of Peace,” this nourishing oil expands the chest as you inhale the fresh scent of revitalizing evergreen.
“What a thing it is to lie there all day in the fine breeze, with the pine needles dropping on one, only to return to the hotel at night so hungry that the dinner, however homely, is a fete, and the menu finer reading than the best poetry in the world!”
~ Will Cather, 1956

“In addition, the scent of pine, for many people, conjures up the image of a natural wilderness of endless forests, thus evoking an open, expansive type of feeling. This makes it a useful oil for stress-related complaints, especially when accompanied by exhaustion and constant tiredness…”
~ Julia Lawless, Aromatherapy and the Mind
“The pines watch humanity come and go, while they live on, among them, below them, we inhale their powerful fragrance, which shoots through our spirit and ends in an inner explosion of understanding.”
