Imagine breathing deeply in a pine forest. Better yet, just go do it. Ah! Feel better? What is it about that aroma that’s so refreshing? There’s something special about conifers, the class of trees with needles instead of leaves. They hold such a distinctively fresh smell that cleaning product manufacturers have commodified the purity of pines, and with good reason. Researchers who study forests for their health benefits are finding that the smell is just an introduction to all that pines offer.
Describing an aroma is a subjective matter, and many variations exist within families of trees along with subtle differences in odor. Cypress, for example, is described as smokey citrus with mint and sage, the perfect combination to keep the grim reaper away. It was used for mummies’ tombs in ancient Egypt because the wood’s high concentration of essential oils makes it resistant to rot. Cypress has also traditionally been planted around cemeteries to cleanse the smell of decomposition.
The smells from other conifers such as cedar and juniper include spicy and sweet, freshly sharpened pencils, and gin. Cedar blocks or wood shavings repel moths in closets and drawers. Balsam firs win first place as the most fragrant Christmas tree, with spruces and pines also bringing the fresh scent of the woods indoors for the holidays.
