In March we are featuring oils to use in Spring cleaning, or anytime cleaning 🙂 The first oil in our series is Pine Essential Oil.
Pine was first investigated by Hippocrates, the father of western medicine, for it’s benefits to the respiratory system. In fact, one of the most popular uses is for treating respiratory disorders such as coughings, colds, bronchitis and nasal decongestant.
