Taking into account all that’s been said and heard about pine, one might easily assume that this particular timber is all that’s necessary for life-long happiness. However, there’s even more than that! Next to the addictive scent and the unbelievable durability of the furnishings made from it, there’re plenty of other goods this marvelous plant can provide our daily lives with. In that regard, we’ve set our sights on the healing qualities of this age-old conifer. Trust us – there are many of them, and the better part of them might come in handy as autumn approaches. Let’s get educated!
The compounds extracted from the tree are used as a remedy for a wide variety of irritations and medical conditions, including but not limited to:
- poor blood circulation
- joint pain (also arthritis and rheumatic condition)
- memory impairements
- neutralization of free radicals
It becomes somewhat less surprising that the tree has received so much love throughout the ages. Apart from these, a special mix of the compounds found within pine is also used as a dietary supplement. Meanwhile, pine tea is well known as a great way to fight vitamin C deficiency and for its scientifically recognized ability to successfully treat respiratory issues. Think of it as an energy drink that actually can prevent one from meeting a near-fatal condition (we’ll return to that later in the article). For now, it’s good to know that…
There’s No Stress When Pine’s Around!
As it turns out, the pine tree is an unbelievably potent stress reliever. In a sense, it seems only natural since the scent of it is ease-inducing by itself. However, acknowledging that conifers are not always available within arm’s reach, aromatherapy featuring the distinctive scent is usually carried out with the help of oils. Spray it here and there to make your place feel airy and calming – just like an actual pathway through a pine forest. This is particularly effective during the night when sprayed on a pillow!
It Makes Your Muscle Less Strained
Oils that are produced from the compounds found within pine trees are also some of the most effective means of reducing or completely eliminating muscle pain. Rarely could anything be better than rinsing the problematic points with pine-made oil after a daily jog or an intense workout session. Pine oil also has an anti-inflammatory effect; therefore, it will help to get rid of redness and swelling in affected areas. Once again, it’s important to note the emotional aspect, as the scent simply elevates the whole therapeutic process to another level!
The Best Remedy for the Following Months
Pine boasts a ridiculous amount of antioxidant qualities. Therefore, it can be utilized in numerous ways, some of which are probably still in the process of being recognized. However, the one that’s proven to work in praxis is the pine’s ability to cure coughs, colds, and other irritating conditions usually associated with the winter/autumn season. More often than not during these months, we find ourselves struggling with a dry, irritating cough that seems to be made for the sole reason of robbing us from a night’s sleep. Pine oil, by this point rather predictably, is able to ease these irritations.
Amongst a plethora of things, pine oil is also an expectorant, meaning it helps to eliminate both phlegm and mucus, making your common autumn cold much more bearable. This will not only significantly increase your comfort but will also help to fight the virus itself since a good chunk of it will be already eradicated by cleaning up your respiratory system!
It’s an Amazing Ingredient for Homemade Perfumes!
Yes, once again we’re returning to the marvelous scent of the pine tree. Be it a DIY genuine perfume, soap, or any other scented item, it’s guaranteed to infuse your home with coziness as long as it maintains its potency. Making a great pair with the scents of cinnamon, apples, oranges, peppermints, and nutmegs, it’s just a matter of choosing the method of utilization. Be it a gift solution, home decor, or an air freshener for your car, you have plenty of possibilities. You can also create a simple aroma spray to set your place ready for the guests!
Yes, of course we are here to lobby the tree. It’s amazing from every perspective you look at it. With a multitude of possible applications, it is also the tree which guarantees the endurance and high-quality appeal of our canvas stretcher bars! With that all said, pine really seems to be a tree that’s here to make our lives easier, healthier, and more convenient.
