Piñon pine cones are a multifaceted gift of Mother Nature. Piñon nuts were and still are a core staple of the diets of many Native American tribes, and are also consumed by a variety of wildlife. Many of the nuts and seeds used to gather the oil are first carried by birds and woodland creatures before being dropped and left in offering on the forest floor. In addition to being delicious and nutritious for the body, Piñon cone oil feeds the mind and soul, opening the higher chakras and inspiring lucid dreams. It is also said to enhance communications with ancient ancestors and ignite ancestral memory.
“Pinyon pine essential oil contains a high amount of esters which are known for their balancing and calming properties. The seeds are edible and have provided food for people and animals for many years. [This oil’s] energy is soft, supportive and nourishing.”
