The dominant components of Jack Pine Essential Oil are Alpha + Beta Pinene, and Limonene, all of which contribute to the uplifting and refreshing scent of the jack pine oil. These compounds are said to have stimulating effects on the body, making it great to use throughout the day to help promote focus and alertness. The aroma of the jack pine oil is much sweeter and less woodsy than other conifer tree oils, so it compliments citrus oils nicely for a beautiful invigorating diffuser blend.
