Product Overview

Our wild Pinyon Pine essential oil is a limited edition, exquisite artisan distillation of needles and twigs ethically harvested from wild grown Pinus edulis trees; this gorgeous specialty offering displays smooth, fresh conifer and woody/resinous body notes with a peculiar butter-like back note and extremely fine, peach/floral top notes of delicate diffusiveness. A mild terpenic note mingles with the peach/floral aspect throughout its long dry down. The care, respect and skills employed in the harvesting and extraction processes are clearly reflected in the quality of this unique plant essence. (Also known as Piñon Pine)

Pinyon Pine trees grow at elevations between 3,000 – 10,000 feet[1] and are native to, and occur abundantly in, the Four Corners area of the US – Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico with a range that has expanded into the surrounding states and Northern Mexico.[2] These slow-growing trees are commonly over 750 years old, with some reaching the age of 900 years or more.[3]

Coniferous trees in general – Pine, Spruce, Fir – are the guardian trees of our planet with their specific refreshing, cleansing constituents. The primary components present in Pinyon Pine are a group of monoterpene hydrocarbons and bornyl acetate with many other constituents in smaller amounts.[4] In the higher boiling fractions, chemists have been able to identify ethyl caprylate, a compound responsible for the characteristic fruity fragrance of Pinyon Pine.[5]

Due to its relatively recent introduction into aromatherapy practice, there is limited information regarding the attributes of Pinyon Pine essential oil; it is generally recognized as having a chemical composition and properties similar to Scotch Pine essential oil, but seems closer to Fir oils, particularly due to the sweetness of fruity esters that do not appear in most Pinus species. Pinyon Pine is just sublime in a diffuser – bringing the outdoors in – especially during the winter months.

For information regarding the attributes of Pinyon Pine essential oil, please see the Suggested Resources section for the similarly used Scotch Pine - organic and Balsam Fir - organic essential oils.

I can not speak highly enough about this oil. It is fantastic. The description is right on: earthy, woody, with a light sweetness and a peach topnote. I was thinking of using it in a blend and then realized that I didn't want to alter the scent at all. It's perfect the way it is:)
