Please understand that undiluted pine absolute is a solid mass at room temperature that must be slowly heated to become pourable. This product in undiluted form is highly recommended for experienced perfumers only or those who feel comfortable working with a solid mass that requires work to become useable. 

Essential oils, absolutes, and other pure plant extracts should not be applied to the skin without being properly diluted in a cosmetic carrier (such as jojoba oil, ethanol, Epsom salts, etc.) Always patch-test when using an essential oil or absolute for the first time, and research whether or not the extract you are using is skin-safe and in what quantity or that it is appropriate for its intended use. Do not ingest essential oils or apply them internally, and avoid contact with the eyes. Keep out of reach of children and pets, and consult a knowledgeable health practitioner before use when pregnant or breastfeeding.
