Pine needle essential oil is distilled from pine needles and the twigs of blue pine “Pinus wallichina,” an important timber tree that is used often in construction in Bhutan. The pine needles are traditionally used as a burnt offering in rituals, while the resin is for tar/turpentine and the wood as fuel. In olden days, locals used pine needles as filling for mattresses. It is believed that the needles provide protection against fleas and lice. The plant regenerates vigorously and colonizes fallow grounds and scrubs.
