THE WHITE PINE (Pinus strobus)
This conifer in eastern Canada produces an essential oil and therefore a hydrolat whose properties are very similar to that of Scots pine in European forests.
It is particularly recommended in cases of bronchitis, sinusitis and asthma.
Very antiseptic, it is used in nebulization to disinfect rooms or rooms of the patients, or in massage, in the same way as essential oil of fir.
The white pine has been identified as the Anneda, the tree that saved Jacques Cartier's crew from scurvy.
This organic hydrosol of white pine from Canada is distilled from the needles of the tree.
The white pine, also called Lord's pine or Weymouth pine is found spontaneously in eastern North America from Georgia in the United States, Ontario, Quebec, the Maritimes and to the island of Terre- New to Canada.
The oldest specimens exceeded 50 m, now it is rare to see a subject over 30 m.
It was decimated by a disease accidentally imported less than 150 years ago, white pine blister rust, which arrived from Europe and Asia.
If it is not attacked by rust it can live 600 years and even possibly 1000 years.
The Iroquois used white pine to make giant canoes that could carry about 40 people.
At the time, the white pines were much bigger and above all really taller.
According to what Marie-Victorin wrote, the loggers would have cut white pines having an incredible height of 90 meters with a diameter of 250 centimeters.
It would have been able to become one of the tallest trees in the world.
Also among the Iroquois this tree is known as the "Tree of Peace" because of its gigantic dimensions and it is for them an important symbol of the Great Law of Peace for this people of North America.
Since 2017, the flag and coat of arms of the City of Montreal have included the white pine, a symbol of the Aboriginal presence on Montreal territory.
