I first heard about Pinus edulis, or the Piñon pine, when we spent a couple weeks exploring New Mexico. I was immediately smitten by the scent and properties of this magical tree. It is native to the southwestern United States and Mexico and has been used by Native Americans in the region for both food and medicine.
Piñon sap acts as a sort of anti-freeze for the trees and is a wonderfully fragrant resin, smelling soft, warm, and sweet. It's so hard to describe, but I think it is positively enchanting. It is exuded by the trees and sustainably hand collected and filtered before we blend with Shea butter, Olive and Coconut oil.
Here is a fun article from 1933 written by one of the rangers at Grand Canyon National park, telling of the historic uses and benefits of the piñon pine.
