You can choose to boil only pine needles for a robust pure pine scent or you can add other ingredients to complement the pine.
Are pine needles poisonous to humans. Allow pine remnants to simmer for 30 minutes stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon or sturdy stick. I simply packed the quart jar and covered it with boiling water. Boil the water and pine needles for 7-10 minutes or until the water changes color and the needles have browned Strain the needles from the boiling water.
