Update from winter/spring of 2021:
We are currently helping our best friends restore an old parcel of farmland that they have purchased this spring. We are clearing some woods for a housesite (we are milling the lumber to build the house), clearing up some roads overgrown with balsam firs and spruces, and reclaiming some overgrown pasture for his laying hens and highland cattle. As we shred the tree material, we only cut the amount that we can run in one distillation, allowing us to distill as fresh plant matter as possible. We are currently distilling the material in the greenhouse that we use for growing vegetables. This will help us capture the heat that the still creates during the distillation process.

The oil has a nice clean scent. It isn’t necessarily a high yielding plant as far as oils are concerned. It seems about 2lbs of branches is yielding 5ml of oil this time of year (early winter). I really enjoy working with pine though. It’s QUITE resinous, but the needles are nice and soft and the wood if very soft, so smaller branches just snap right off when we process the branches down into smaller pieces to be distilled.

The higher relative price reflects the lower yields we get from this species. It takes about 5 lbs of White Spruce plant material to create each 5ml bootle of essential oil.

(NOTE: DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY) The plant contains thujone, a naturally occuring ketone known to act as a neurotoxin within the body. Do your own research on thujone to determine if this oil is right for you.

We think the trees look like giant bottlebrushes in the forest. They have beautiful flaking red/orange bark and we love seeing them in Maine forests. Unfortunately, porcupines love them here, too. All of this essential oil was harvested from trees that were severely damaged by porcupines (they chew through and eat the inner bark of the trees in winter).
We have found that it takes about 3.5 lbs of Red Pine branches and leaves to produce each 5ml bottle of essential oil.

It takes about 2.75 lbs of plant material to make each 5ml bottle of essential oil.
