What are the Wellbeing Benefits of Pine?

Synonymous with Christmas, pine is one of the most refreshing and invigorating scents on the planet.

Just think, the fragrance of a freshly-cut Christmas tree cuts through the cinnamon-infused baking and rich scents during the festive period; filling the house with its delightful and calming aroma.

It is partly due to this refreshing scent that makes it the perfect wellbeing ingredient, especially during this hectic season.

Why is pine a great wellbeing ingredient?

Aiding with conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, and helping to keep energy levels high and reducing anxiety and fatigue, Pine is a super ingredient to add into your health and beauty routine when the days get shorter and the nights darker.

It’s the ultimate winter-blues fighter, and here are our top 3 reasons we love to use it.

  1. Keeps the skin healthy

    Pine is a naturally antiseptic ingredient, making it great to use when you have any conditions such as eczema or psoriasis that you need to keep clean without using a harsh astringent.

    The Weleda Pine Reviving Bath Milk is made with natural botanicals and plant extracts which help to treat the soreness and itching associated with skin conditions.

    This is also great to be used if you’re feeling under the weather as its invigorating scent helps to clear the airways and leave you feeling a bit brighter.

  2. Helps to relieve stress

    Pine essential oil can help to energise and refresh; perfect for after a stressful day, which is why we love the ESPA Winter Pine Candle.

    Also infused into the wax are Eucalyptus and Cinnamon that help to banish fatigue and combat the winter blues for an instant pick-me-up.

    If you have particular feelings of anxiety or stress (who doesn’t during Christmas!), you will love an evening with this candle, a great book and some comfy pyjamas.


  3. Helps aching muscles

    As the scent of pine can help to reduce feelings of anxiety and stress, it also works wonders on helping to ease muscular tension.

    The ELEMIS Musclease Active Body Oil contains a soothing blend of Pine, Rosemary and Sea Fennel, which help to ease pain associated with arthritis and backache.

    Massaging a small amount of this oil into sore areas helps to keep your body feeling comfortable, while its invigorating scent immediately energises you.

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
