White Pine Needle Tea, Steam and Foot Bath

March 10, 2016

White pine trees are a common tree here in Maine. Standing near a pine tree and breathing in deeply is like drinking fresh air. This is a good spring practice to do to clear out leftover lung congestion from the winter. Leaning against a white pine tree is also deeply healing for anyone who has experienced betrayal or feels emotionally shattered. Breathe in and out, release your hurt and receive the tree’s strength. Be sure to bow to the tree in gratitude.
