The properties of Mugo pine

The powers of South Tyrol’s mountains are concentrated in the mountain pines (Pinus mugo) of the valley Val Sarentino/Sarntal. These high Alpine conifers which seldom exceed a couple of metres in height thrive in the sunny soils of the Sarntal, the valley which leads off directly to the north of the city of Bolzano/Bozen. The valley is home to the “Badl” or traditional pine baths. Mugo pine baths activate the organism and reinvigorate the body in the most natural way. In addition the heady, pungent scent heightens one’s deeply-felt sensation of well-being.

Mugo pine oil has long been a popular and proven household remedy, used with enormous effect for health care as a liniment, ointment and as an inhalant, as a bath essence and in saunas.
