Interesting Corsican Pine Essential Oil Information
Pine has a rich and multi-faceted history. Crude pine resin is distilled to produce rosin (used to give violinists' bows the proper "stick") and oil of Turpentine, a solvent most closely associated with paint. It is also extensively cultivated for its wood, tar, and pitch, used in building and construction. Pine is a common fragrance component in soaps, detergents, cosmetics, and toiletries. Historically, mattresses were stuffed with its needles to repel lice and fleas, and ancient Egyptians used pine kernels in their cooking.
