Observations and Anecdotal Information
The beautiful pinon pine is and has been a big player in the indigenous community of the desert southwest. Although known for its edible seeds, it filled many other roles including medicinal, ceremonial, and structural.
The Mescalero Apache valued the pinon nut, and collected it beginning around October. The nuts were parched on hot rocks or coals, then stored for use throughout the winter. The Navajo ground them into powder and made them into sun-dried cakes, also storing them through the winter.
Pollen was gathered in the spring by many indigenous peoples, for ceremonial use. Pinon was also a player in the puberty rites of young girls.
Medicinal uses for piñon pine essential oil include treatment for colds, skin infections, respiratory ailments, and burns. Modern uses include herbal treatment and prevention of cancer, scoliosis, adrenal tonic, and blood purification.
