Botanical Name: Abies balsamea
Traditionally used to support healthy lung and sinus function, ease minor muscle and joint issues, soothe nervous tension and stress.
Middle note of a strong aroma and has a crisp, clean scent of fir balsam needles.
The needles of the Balsam Fir are from 3/4 to 1-1/4 inches long with two white stripes running down the underside of each needle. Also known as Blistering Pine, the oil is commonly used in air fresheners and household cleansers. Long before the advent of chewing gum, the gum was sold as a breath-freshener, and it was used medicinally on the battle field during the American Civil War.
Our Balsam Fir hails from carefully tended trees in Canada.
Can be applied topically at a 3% dilution (3 drops per 1 ounce of carrier oil); 1 drop per 1 hour in a diffuser for essential oils: do not ingest; contact with eyes should be avoided.
