Relaxation and well-being with Swiss pine

A restoring sleep thanks to the scent of Swiss pine wood

The wood of the Swiss pine, known locally as “cirmolo”, is abundant in the forests of Trentino. This scented wood has been used for centuries for panelling bedrooms and creating fine furniture. The beneficial properties of this wood are many but the most significant are probably its calming effects and its ability to alleviate stress, reduce heart rate and facilitate sleep.

But that’s not all, this plant, that grows in the high mountains between 1,800 and 2,000 metres above sea level, also has antibacterial properties and is indicated for people suffering from allergies. Even the Prince-Bishop of Trento had his bed chamber panelled with this wood which is still visible today at Thun Castle in the Val di Non. Here are numerous recommendations for hotels and similar structures that offer special rooms and suites in Swiss pinewood that will help you get a good night’s sleep.
