Originally this oil was purchased to use with our Black Spruce essential oil in a blend to support glandular activity that Schnaubelt had written about. Not only have we been very pleased with his suggestion. We’vee also found that Scotch Pine (aka Scots Pine and Pine Needle) is a fantastic oil with many benefits.
Diffusing it may help clear the mind of confusion. Add it to your diffuser with Grapefruit and Rosemary to help defatigue your mind from the daily grind.
Because it has fantastic antiseptic and anti-fungal properties, scotch pine essential oil makes a great addition to cleaning blends. It’s particularly refreshing and very nicely scented when mixed with lemon tea tree and alcohol for a surface spray (counters, doorknobs, bathtubs, shower floors and doors, etc) during germ-laden seasons.
During those same seasons, Scotch Pine Essential Oil can also help support a healthy respiratory tract. Diffuse it or use it in sinus steamers or inhalers (depending on your need). Because it’s safe for little ones, we tend to suggest this over other oils, like eucalyptus, as it is much more gentle. For older children and adults, you may want to consider eucalyptus and lavender with our scotch pine as proposed by Valnet for relief from coughs and congestion. Even pets may benefit from pine in the diffuser.
Emotionally, scotch pine can be a fabulous “pick-me-up” which is excellent for someone dealing with sad, lonely feelings. It is said to help give some balance to emotions.
Added to a carrier or lotion and massaged into muscles, this essential oil can soothe occasional sore, tired muscles. It can also be beneficial to skin as it can help reduce the appearance of blemishes, making it a great addition to a “guy blend” for teenage boys with it’s more masculine scent.
With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.

Scotch Pine Essential Oil Safety Info
Tisserand and Young note that Scotch Pine Essential Oil’s high content of α-pinene, ()-limonene and/or δ-3-carene indicate that it should be stored in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator to prevent oxidation and that oxidized oil may cause sensitivity. They also recommend that an antioxidant be added to preparations containing this oil. Scotch Pine Essential Oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source: Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such. With all essential oils:
Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas). The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
Keep away from children.
If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally. Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert. Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
