Their straight trunks are not branched making the Scots Pine a popular choice for lumber. the needles and twigs are collected from trees cut for lumber, so essential oil is a wonderful by-product of the lumber industry. Although there are more than 80 pine varieties, Scots Pine is considered to be the safest and most useful in aromatherapy.

If applying an essential oil to the skin, always dilute it with a proper carrier oil and test on a small patch of skin before applying to a large area. Do not take them internally except under the direction of a qualified professional trained in Aromatherapy. Always familiarize yourself with the safety, contraindications and proper preparation of each essential oil before use.
