Ponderosa Pine Hydrosol
Our wildcrafted ponderosa pine hydrosol is steam distilled from the beautiful, fragrant needles of Pinus ponderosa trees that we gather and distill ourselves right here in Montana. The piney, sweet, woodsy aroma of this hydrosol will instantly transport you to a grove of gorgeous ponderosa pine trees, deep in a cool, mossy forest. Ponderosa pine hydrosol is helpful for a wide range of skin issues as well as for lung support.
We like to put 1-2 teaspoons of this hydrosol in 8-12 ounces of water to make a refreshing general health tonic. In addition to boosting overall wellbeing, it can help support the immune system and strengthen lung support, especially when needing an expectorant. It is also useful as a rinse when one is looking to get rid of unwanted dandruff. Various North American indigenous tribes value ponderosa pine for its antiseptic and vulnerary properties, using it to treat a wide range of skin problems including cuts, wounds, and burns. These communities also traditionally made a tea from ponderosa pine needles as it provides an excellent source of Vitamin C. The needles were also commonly used in various healing ceremonies producing an invigorating scent of turpentine and citrus.
Try using this ponderosa pine hydrosol in a bath, shower, sauna, room spray, or diffuser blend to enjoy some of its incredible benefits. Some aromatherapists like to use ponderosa pine to cleanse, purify, and energize one’s energetic and emotional environment.
