zirben - mountain pine


For those of you who have already stayed at Singdean, this is what you can smell in your room : )

This is a very special essential oil, called ‘Zirben’ or ‘Swiss Stone Pine’ from the Italian Alps. It is a slow growing pine that grows in the Alps at an altitude of between 1,200 meters and 2,300 meters. The oil is harvested only in December when there is the smallest crescent of moon. This is when Mother Nature is at her most restful. The essential oil of this pine has been shown to have a calming effect. This helps the body to regenerate itself during rest periods and enhances mental equilibrium and resilience and is a blessing for body and soul. 

It is, perhaps obviously, a very warm woody smell. Not like the pine you know. It is a pure essential oil so is very strong, a few drops goes a long way!

Lovely to use in our wooden diffuser or together with lavender. We put a few drops on our pillow for a lovely sleep.

15ml bottle with a dropper cap

Hand made wooden diffuser, each one is different. Just pop a few drops of the essential oil into the diffuser and pop the lid back on. 

The price is for a diffuser and zirben oil.


zirben sheep milk soap

Mountain Pine sheep milk is very high in fat and protein, it also has a high concentration of vitamins, minerals and anti-inflammatory agents which makes it nurturing and soothing. 

This makes the sheep milk soap truly agreeable, especially for very sensitive or irritated skins. 

And it smells lovely.
