Swiss pine oil
is obtained by steam distillation from the wood and needles of the Swiss pine (Pinus cembra). The Swiss pine is a tough, hardy conifer that grows in the harsh mountain regions of the High Alps (e.g. Austria/Switzerland). Its essential oils are unusually positive and effective in promoting sleep. When added to a massage oil, the fragrance is stimulating and relaxing. Swiss pine oil has a woody, balsamic fragrance, soothes the soul, absorbs unpleasant odours and cleans the air.
