Aroma:This essential oil is not at all like a commercially distilled oils that are found from other companies! It is balanced with delicate and harmonious notes from the sweet needles of the tree. It does not have any harsh notes, but instead is gentle and alluring making this a very pleasant Scotch Pine.
Personal notes: In my quest to find the most beautiful Scotch Pine that I could, I deliberately ordered a sample of a commercially distilled Scotch Pine. With three different ones sitting in front of me, I can tell you that commercially distilled Scotch Pine is one I will never own outside of this sampling. While I know that a commercially distilled oil may be less expensive, there is an absolute difference. Once you smell this gorgeous artisan distilled oil, you will understand why I say this. The difference really is night and day.
Safety Data: This oil can oxidize if not stored properly. If it oxidizes, it can cause skin sensitization used topically. Take care to store in a cool, dark area.
