Pine Essential Oil Sylvestris

Adam Michael has this to say “Pine sylvestris is a great air antiseptic and very nice added to the aroma diffuser along with an equal measure of eucalyptus globulus. Commonly used for treating respiratory conditions. The essential oil is obtained by dry distillation of the needles, twigs, and cones, pale yellow in colour and of a pourable viscosity. The aroma is full of strong, pine fresh, resinous character throughout.”

Arctander has this to say “Its characteristic, fresh topnote and the peculiar sweetness in this top note are the main features of the oil. Apart from that, the oil of Pinus sylvestris does not offer any outstanding or unusual effect in perfumery. Its use is confined to room fresheners (sprays), disinfectants, insecticides, soaps and detergents, vaporizer liquids, etc.”
