Add to that the fact that pine is good for us. Today we'll be going over just how pine can be used to support good health.
Better sleep in natural surroundings
Many of us likely think of pine as a construction material used for beds and other furniture, in fact it is one of the preferred types of wood used for such purposes. One reason for this is the pleasant scent that comes from pine – it's actually even been proven to lower the human heart rate.

There is actually a natural solution to this health condition: The smell of pine oil can free up the airway, allowing us to breath more easily and lessening the severity of headache. Pine is also very valued for use in the sauna due to all of these properties. Additionally the seeds of the pine tree, which are known as "pine nuts", can be used to make a delicious pesto.
