Pinus Sylvestris (Scots Pine) Leaf Oil
Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) is a evergreen coniferous pine native to Eurasia, usually found growing on the edges of forests or on poorer, sandy soils. Trees grow up to 35 meters tall, and are distinctive because of the short flaky orange bark growing on the upper branches and their short, blue-green leaves. Pine oil is produced by steam distilling the needles, twigs and cones of the tree and is used in perfumery, aromatherapy and cleaning. Pinus sylvestris is the national tree of Scotland.
