There may be a good reason why many common household cleaners claim to “smell like pine.” This connection to pine oil and good health is as old as the hills, and its related to the germ-deterring, disinfectant properties of the oil.

In fact, pine was greatly revered by the father of Western medicine, Hippocrates, who noted its strong healing effect on the human respiratory system. Similarly, the Native Americans used pine needles in bedding to deter bedbugs and lice.

Obtained by extracting essential oils from the needles of pine trees, pine oil, is a strong therapeutic aid. Similar to tea tree and eucalyptus oil, extracts of pine are powerful agents against harmful organisms of all types, making it a great oil to have in your medicine chest and cleaning cupboard.

Its powerful capacities are related to its high levels of phenols and terpenes, acidic plant chemicals that repel germs and ward off disease.[1] It also has a healing effect on the endocrine system and aids the body in cleansing impurities from the skin. Pine hydrosol is an immune-stimulant and body tonic, enhancing overall mental and physical balance.

8 Health Benefits of Pine Oil

Below are the top benefits of pine oil for your health!

1. Reduces Joint & Muscle Redness and Swelling

Because of its potent properties, pine oil resists redness and swelling for people with joint pain and discomfort.[2, 3] Used topically, it may also help relieve general muscular aches and pains. Add to a hot bath, or to a base massage oil, such as sweet almond or coconut.

2. Acts as an Expectorant

Essential pine oil may also help relieve congestion and acts as an expectorant, aiding the body to break up mucus and remove it from the lungs. It also helps reduce the incidence of sinus infections.
