The mountain pine (Pinus mugo) is very common in the Pustertal. It grows up to two to five metres and has a scaly brown-black bark. The mountain pine defies the wind and elements and survives under a snow cover that is a metre thick.

Mountain pine oil works internally, through inhalation, owing to its expectorant effect against colds and dry coughs. One positive side effect is that it also combats the growth of bacteria.

If the pine oil is applied externally by rubbing the aromatic substances stimulate the circulation of the blood, relax tense muscles and thus soothe sore muscles or backache. The stimulation of the blood circulation can also help with joint problems. 

During your stay in Hotel Leitlhof - Dolomiten you will have the chance to visit the pine oil distilleries in the Pustertal for yourselves. We look forward to receiving your non-binding enquiry.
