Pine essential oil is viewed as an analgesic, antibacterial, antibiotic, antifungal, antiseptic, and as an antiviral. Aromatherapists credit its use for inflammatory conditions and respiratory or circulatory ailments, and some infections due to its reported decongestant, deodorising, and cleansing properties.
