PostSubject: Hidden Health Benefits of Your Christmas Tree   Wed Dec 10, 2008 9:50 pm

I thought I'd share this with everyone, I read it in Woman's World.

Feel Happier While all trees produce negative ions.....electrically c harged air molecules that boost mood and energy by increasing our oxygen capacity...studies show that pine tree needles, because of their unique shape, produce more of these feel-good molecules than any other kind of greenery.

Tests have shown that both the bark and needles of the pine tree also emit bioflavonoids, powerful antioxidants that keep you healthy and alert.

Ease Stress Simply smelling pine can make you feel more relaxed, say researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy Ny.
Other studies found the scent can even reduce feelings of claustrophobia. Smelling a clean pine scent reminds us of the outdoors, which gives the subconscious feeling of being in a larger space.

Relieve Colds and Allergies Pine essential oil, pressed from the twigs and needles of the tree, has been used for centuries to cure respiratory problems and now research shows it thins mucus and soothes inflammation in the nasal and bronchial tracts. To feel relief fast, place a few drops of the essential oil into boiling water, drape a towel over your head and breathe deeply.

Detoxify Your House Scientists have discoverd that tiny particles released by pine needles, actually rid the air of toxins by blocking pollutants. In fact, pine trees have so many of these pollution busting particles that researchers are hoping to harness them as a way to fight problems like enviromental pollution and global warming.

Real Christmas Trees are pretty cool huh.
