Pine oil is an essential oil obtained from a variety of pine species, particularly Pinus sylvestris. Typically, parts of trees not used for timber - logs etc. they are ground and subjected to steam distillation. As of 1995, synthetic pine oil was the "largest single derivative of turpentine.
Pine oil is a higher boiling fraction than turpentine. Both synthetic and natural pine oil are primarily composed of α-terpineol, a C10 alcohol. The detailed composition of natural pine oil depends on many factors, such as the host plant species. Synthetic pine oil is obtained by treating pinene with water in the presence of a catalytic amount of sulfuric acid.
Industrially, pine oil was once used in foam flotation to separate minerals from ores. For example, in copper mining, pine oil is used to prepare copper sulfide ores for froth flotation.

In alternative medicine it is used in aromatherapy and as a scent in bath oils.
