The resin from a number of pines from the desert Southwest and Mexico yield Trementina or Piñon resin. Also spelled Pinyon or Pinion, these trees also produce Pine nuts, or Piñon nuts. The resin is usually sticky and the scent is deep, sweet, and full. Like many tree resins it is used to purify and bless a space. Piñon is also used to increase concentration and for meditation. It refreshes and strengthens a weary spirit. Piñon is a very sacred and traditional Native American incense.

Not many incense resins are give to the planet Jupiter, but I promote this correspondense. The richness and fullness befit the Royal Planet, and also since the tree bears edible nuts, this corresponds with other Jupiter nut-bearing trees like Walnut and Pecan. Because it is a western tree, the correspondences according to European tradition and alchemy are less resolved. Especially with regard to the Elemental correspondence I could make arguments that Piñon is Air, Fire, Water, and Earth, which means it is a rare Spirit herb. This resin is usually fairly sticky.

The below correspondences are vis Cunningham, Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs in plain text, C.L. Zalewski, Herbs in Magic and Alchemy in brackets, or my own interpretations in parenthesis. In this case, Cunningham's and Zalewski's correspondences are given for generic Pine trees, not necessarily the resin-yielding Piñon species.
