INCI Name: Abies alba (Silver Fir) Needle Oil
The name Abies is Latin for
rising one in reference to its height, and the name Alba is Latin for
white and is suggestive of the white color of its wood. North American indigenous tribes have long used the aromatic needles of this tree for helping with lung and chest issues. Popular applications for this essential oil include air fresheners, bath blends, perfumes, and other cosmetic products.
In addition to having decongestant, expectorant, and mucolytic properties, which help with lung and sinus issues, Silver Fir Essential Oil can also help in reducing minor pain and inflammation as well as easing unwanted muscle spasms. This oil is highly effective when used daily in the diffuser, especially when there may be inhibited flow through the breath channels during the difficult winter months. Its antiseptic, antibacterial, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties make it a great addition to skin nourishing oils and for use on inflamed, hot skin conditions such as insect bites and stings.
Emotionally and energetically, Silver Fir Needle Essential Oil is restorative and calming. This essential oil is very uplifting, especially during stressful, challenging situations that require more emotional fortitude and strength. Silver Fir Needle Oil pairs exceptionally well with other 'outdoor' aromas such as Lavender, Spruce, Eucalyptus and Rosemary.
