The Scots pine provides an essential oil long familiar to our grandparents, who in earlier days already enjoyed its healing action on the bronchi through the inhalation of this essential oil in Nordic climates. It thrives in the mountains and sandy or gravelly soil. Scots pine has purplish-grey bark, acicular, robust leaves, yellow male and red female flowers, and a green ovoid cone that turns brown when mature.
