About 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 with the soft and subtle buttery undertones of pine nuts.
This aromatherapeutic oil comes from high-altitude, piñon pine needles wild-harvested during fire mitigation projects in Colorado. A powerful, uplifting cleanser for air and surfaces, its disinfecting, deodorizing powers will freshen and purify your space, leaving behind a scent of fresh pine forests.
Ideal for cooler months to support the respiratory system, this essential oil can be used in a variety of ways.
