Pine Oil is a popular solvent across the globe for gums, resins, and other substances, proving effective in industrial applications. The Oil can be extracted from the pitch-soaked wood or needles of the pine tree (Pinus Sylvestris) using the steam distillation process. It has all the properties of pine trees, delivering a strong, woodsy, and somewhat dry scent. Synthetic Pine Oil is produced by converting terpene hydrocarbons into terpene alcohols.
This Oil is considered a strong solvent, offering anti-inflammatory, cleansing, and antiseptic properties.
