Koala Tree’s Pine Essential Oil is extracted from the needles of the Siberian Pine Tree which grows to a height of around 40 metres. The distilled pine oil has a woody, balsamic aroma. Traditionally in Europe, the pine tree was used to purify the air and prevent diseases from spreading through the winters. It was known as a symbol of feminine fertility and celebrated amongst many religious practices.
Pine Essential Oil’s anti-inflammatory properties have made it very popular. Due to its high percentage of pinolenic acid it is linked to lowering blood sugar and bad cholesterol levels. The pinolenic acid in this oil stimulates the hormone cholecystokinin which functions as a hunger suppressant thus aiding in weight loss.
