Pinyon Pine Essential Oil

Pinyon Pine

Pinyon Pine Oil, also known as Pinion Pine Oil, and Piñon Pine Oil, is an especially fresh and aromatically pleasant pine oil.

The Pinyon Pine Tree is native to Mexico and the southwestern region of the United States.

Pinyon Pine Essential Oil

Aromatically, the oil is crisp and fresh. We tend to think of the pine, spruce and fir oils as being most appropriate for Christmas and winter, but the fresh outdoor aroma of Pinyon Pine Oil is well suited for use year round. Aromatically, it blends wonderfully with oils in the conifer, mint, wood and citrus families.

Emotionally, I find that Pinyon Pine Oil is a balancing oil in that it provides a gentle sense of calm when someone is agitated, but it can also help to stimulate and energize when needed. I love including it in blends for use when needing to focus or when needing insight and inspiration.

Pinyon Pine Essential Oil Uses

Although minimal usage information is documented by trusted aromatherapy sources, the high monoterpene composition of the oil leads it to possess similar applications to that of Scotch Pine Essential Oil.

Major Constituents

In reviewing the GC/MS reports of several reputable Pinyon Pine Oil suppliers, the oil contains approximately 80-90% monoterpenes, particularly a-pinine and b-pinene. It also contains approximately 3-10% sesquiterpenes.

Safety Information

Safety data specifically for Pinyon Pine Oil isn't available within the second edition of Essential Oil Safety. Since the oil possesses a significant percentage of monoterpenes, however, it would be advisable to follow Tisserand and Young's advice in avoiding the oil for topical use if it has oxidized.. Reading Tisserand and Young's profiles for the pine oils that they do profile is recommended. [Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young, Essential Oil Safety (Second Edition. United Kingdom: Churchill Livingstone Elsevier, 2014).]

Important Information About the Profiles

The essential oil information provided on AromaWeb is intended for educational purposes only. This data is not considered complete and is not guaranteed to be accurate. The oil photos are intended to represent the typical and approximate color of each essential oil. However, oil color can vary based on harvesting, distillation and other factors. Profiles for several absolutes are included within the directory, and are denoted as such.

General Safety Information

Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children. It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children. For in-depth information on oil safety issues, read Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young.
