Bring The Fresh Forest Air Indoors With Piñon Pine Essential Oils

Bring the Fresh Forest Air Indoors
With Piñon Pine Essential Oils

We’ve adapted to indoor living, yet we’re still called to nature.

It’s why we hike, kayak, visit beautiful places, boat, camp, and more… because the outdoors are always calling.

After all, it’s where we’ve come from. It’s instinctual.

We’re drawn to its remarkable resources, using natural botanicals in our health and wellness routines whenever we can. Since time immemorial, nature has been our apothecary.

Aromatherapy brings these precious natural resources closer to us, into our homes and workspaces so we can heal and thrive through nature — the way we always have.

The fresh, crisp, familiar scents of conifer essential oils are uniquely reminiscent of nature’s wonders. In honor of our natural roots and aromatherapy that connects us to them, we’re celebrating two of our favorite conifer oils:

Pinon Pine and Pinon-Juniper Essential Oils

These two multitasking oils freshen and purify the air, offer breath support, clean surfaces, and detox the body.

Plus, they smell like forest-bathing in a crisp, fresh, conifer glade.

Piñon-Juniper Co-distillation Essential Oil
This brand-new release has a balsamic, woody sweetness, and is softer than common synthetic pine scents.

Piñon-Juniper Co-distillation Essential Oil supports the whole body — it clarifies skin, detoxes the body, clears the breath and airways, refreshes the mind, relieves worry and stress, and supports muscle and joint health.

Dilute it to use it topically, but never ingest it.

Piñon Pine Essential Oil
Floracopeia’s artisanal Piñon Pine Essential Oil possesses a fresh, sumptuous, coniferous scent — reminiscent of resinous trees exuding their perfume in the hot summer sun.

A powerful oil for the respiratory system, Piñon Pine Essential Oil can also boost alertness and productivity. Similar to piñon-juniper, it can ease joint and muscle pain and can be used as a cleanser and deodorizer.

Using Piñon Pine Oils for Wellbeing

With Piñon Pine’s powerful antimicrobial powers, they’re ideal air purifiers and surface cleansers. They work to fight off infection and illnesses, especially during the winter months and can be applied topically for body distress, such as sore muscles and joints.

How to use Piñon Essential Oils

AIR PURIFICATION
Diffuse Piñon-Juniper Co-distillation Essential Oil or Piñon Pine Essential Oil to help purify the air, especially during the wintertime when microbes and airborne illnesses can easily spread.

Add several drops of Piñon-Juniper Co-distillation Essential Oil or Piñon Pine Essential Oil to your diffuser and enjoy the crisp scent and pure air that follows.

Consider a blend for aromatic pleasure. For a lovely scented, relaxing and an uplifting, air-purifying blend, we love  Piñon Pine Essential Oil, sweet Bergamot Essential Oil, and herbaceous Lavender Essential Oil, Kashmir.

DEODORIZER
Make an air spritz by adding 20 drops of Piñon-Juniper Co-distillation Essential Oil or Piñon Pine Essential Oil to 1 cup of water and 1 cup of witch hazel in a spray bottle. Spritz to freshen up the air and reduce pet, trash, or other odors. Try adding in Legends Protection Blend for an additional burst of purification power that leaves behind an herbaceous, spicy, fresh aroma.

COUGH SUPPRESSANT
Add several drops of Piñon-Juniper Co-distillation Essential Oil or Piñon Pine Essential Oil to ½ oz of Champa Infused Almond Oil and apply as a chest rub to encourage open and clear breathing.

Consider adding Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Radiata for an additional menthol boost.

Consider adding Lemon-Scented Eucalyptus Essential Oil or Peppermint Essential Oil for additional cleaning power and fragrance.

DETOXIFICATION

This massage oil not only soothes joints and muscles but is detoxing, too.
Using Jojoba Carrier Oil as your base, add several drops of piñon pine oil. For a powerful detoxing experience, consider adding any (or all!) of the following detoxing oils: Rosemary Essential Oil, Verbenone, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Australian, Jatamansi.

Please note that jatamansi is a powerful soporific. Omit from the blend, unless it is being used to intentionally induce drowsiness.

UPLIFTING FOCUS ENHANCER
In a pinch, you might not have a spray bottle or diffuser handy. Essential oils can be used directly from the palm in a method called palm inhalation.

Add a drop or two of either of our piñon pine essential oils to your palms and rub them together. Inhale to lift your mood and get energized. For ongoing aromatherapy, a couple of drops on a tissue work perfectly in a small space like a car or office.

IMMUNITY BOOSTING FACIAL STEAM
Add several drops of piñon pine oil to steaming water, lean over the steam, and cover your face and steaming bowl with a towel. Take several deep inhalations. This will open up your airways and calm your mind.

For a respiratory boosting blend, add Breathe Essential Oil Blend, Peppermint Essential Oil, or Lemon-Scented Eucalyptus Essential Oil.

For a facial steam that supports breath health, overall immunity, and rejuvenates your skin, consider adding Chamomile Essential Oil, Blue, and Frankincense Essential Oil.
