Pine needle oil has been used around the world for centuries. The oil is made by steam-distilling fresh pine needles and branch tips. In Korea, the oil is distilled from the Red Pine. In Austria, Russia and Scandinavia, the oil comes from the Scots Pine or the Black Spruce. Several varieties of pines in North America are valued for their medicinal oils. Pine needle oil is used as a fragrance and flavor enhancer, as well an ingredient in nasal decongestants, vaporizer fluids, analgesic ointments and cough and cold medicines.
