INCI Name: Abies balsamea Needle Oil
Our organic Balsam Fir Essential Oil is steam distilled from the aromatic green needles and twigs of the Abies balsamea evergreen tree growing in northeastern Canada. The oil has a distinctively woodsy, balsamic, evergreen aroma and a very light, clean terpenic top note like reminiscent of freshly crushed fir needles. Bright and elevating, Balsam Fir Essential Oil is highly recommended for use in diffusers to purify the environment in enclosed spaces and especially to help ward off infectious bacterias that circulate in the winter months. This essential oil helps to support healthy lung function, especially when one is feeling particularly congested.
Along with providing support for healthy lungs, Balsam Fir Essential Oil is cherished by many for its emotional balancing effects. With an uplifting yet soothing effect, Balsam Fir Oil is a welcome ally to inhale after a day in the city or a long drive, and it revivifies with every breath. Balsam Fir is also an excellent oil for calming muscles and joints after a long day or intense workout.
The Balsam Fir is a native evergreen conifer well-adapted to the cold climates of the northern United States and Canada. Its symmetrical spire-like crown, shining dark green color and sweet, turpentine fragrance created by the abundant resin in its bark and needles have made it a favourite Christmas tree for hundreds of years. The branches are also popular in holiday wreaths and other greenery. In the landscape, this fir is used as a specimen as well as part of a screen or windbreak.
