Pine Nut oil, also called Pine Seed oil or Cedar Nut oil, is a vegetable oil, extracted from the edible seeds of several species of pine. While the oil produced from the seeds of more common European and American pine varieties is mostly used for culinary purposes. Siberian Pines, growing in Russia, Mongolia and Kazakhstan, yield the seeds with the highest content of pinolenic acid, as well as antioxidants associated with medicinal uses.
Ringing Cedar is a Siberian Cedar which has aged over 550 years. After 550 years of it's life the Ringing Cedar starts making a pleasant humming sound which is a sign for people to use it's gathered energy.
The Siberian Taiga is one of the ecologically purest areas of the world. The virgin forest of the Taiga has never been treated with any chemicals or artificial fertilization nor abused by agricultural machines. All flora in the Taiga has been preserved in original condition by nature.
Producing Cedar Nuts and Cedar Nut oil is centuries-old tradition in Russia. Virgin Cedar Nut oil has an attractive light-amber colour and a pleasant nutty fragrance. Its flavour qualities surpass the best grades of Olive oil and Almond oil, and the strength of its medicinal effect exceeds Sea buckthorn, Burdock, Coconut, and high grade Olive oil.
The highly curative properties of Russia Cedar Nut oil are explained by the technology of preparation, which includes a method of cold-pressing and the gathering of Cedar Nuts by hand, allowing the product to retain all the great revitalizing strength of the Cedar tree.
In Siberia, since ancient times, it was believed that precisely the Cedar Nut was one of the chief riches of the Taiga. Cedar forests were always protected. Entire villages went out to collect nuts, moreover the number of trees from which families were to gather the nuts was determined earlier, taking into account the quantity of family members to feed. Usually the nut harvest lasted five to ten days, for the cleaning of the cones (shelling) was done right in the Taiga, using special devices. Unless “the community” consented otherwise, it was permitted to gather nuts only in distant Cedar forests, to which there were no roads.
Cedar Nut oil is not an inexpensive product, and cannot be inexpensive by virtue of the special features of its production. But the price of Cedar Nut oil is completely comparable to the price of pharmaceutical multivitamins, which often provoke allergic reactions and have a fairly questionable effectiveness. Abroad, Cedar Nut oil is very highly valued.
In cold pressing, the kernels, cleaned of their shells, are placed in a wooden press. The oil obtained settles or is filtered. During the processing, the oil is not permitted to come into contact with any metal parts. The Cedar Nut oil thus obtained is extremely wholesome, and is widely used in traditional medicine and cosmetology. This method is the most costly, but the result is of the highest quality.
The proteins of the oil include 19 amino acids, 70% of which are essential. Cedar Nut oil contains a large proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids - linoleic, linolenic, oleic, arachidonic, palmitic, and stearic, trace elements - phosphorus, copper, magnesium, zinc, manganese, cobalt, iodine.
