Product Overview

The exquisite aroma of our Balsam Fir Absolute surely embodies the revitalizing effects that can be experienced when spending time within the realm of forests.[1] It is sweet, rich, warm, fruity, jam-like, and intensely balsamic with a coumarin-like undertone of excellent tenacity – exactly like the juicy-fresh smell of recently harvested young conifer trees. When used in low dilution, Balsam Fir Absolute imparts a fresh, natural forest fragrance to a vast array of perfume compositions. NOTE: This product is diluted for ease of use and contains 10% Balsam Fir Absolute in 90% Fractionated Coconut Oil – Organic.

The needles and small branches of the stately Abies balsamea conifers found in eastern Canada are harvested for extraction of Balsam Fir Absolute. If you already appreciate the ascendancy of needle oils, with their buoyant and airy terpenes, you will be undone by the evergreen embrace of a thousand trees’ collective olfactory output - this species' greatest gift, and no wrapping paper!

This product is diluted for ease of use and contains 10% Balsam Fir Absolute in 90% Fractionated Coconut Oil – Organic. For the pure and undiluted version of this oil, please see our Balsam Fir Absolute. If you are interested in using Balsam Fir for aromatherapy applications, please see our high-quality Balsam Fir essential oils that we offer.

Isn't this batch smokey a bit?

Rating

I smell woody and smokey rather than jammy tone. Is this the same one as the sample provided in 10%? Maybe my nose's fault

Review by BB 8/6/2023

Amazing and complex scent

Rating

Fir Balsam Absolute is one of the first natural perfuming materials I fell in love with for its complex, sweet, piney, jammy luscious scent, and Eden Botanicals has one of the best. It's well balanced and a perfect combination of fresh, terpenic, and sweet. It's hard to get natural fruity scents, and Fir Balsam Absolute delivers in spades. I love using this scent and in small quantities, it blends nicely in many applications. Since it is such an intense material, it's nice to have access to a 10% dilution. It's more than enough for blending and so easy to work with. I can't recommend it enough!

More of a sensation than odor

Rating

Very full odor, for me nothing to do with the forest or trees, reminds me of waking up to toast and jam (good jam) still warm when I wasn’t quite awake, where the taste is in the air, the air is warm around this scent, but still hits the back of the throat Sweet w/o floral or honey, balsam so low it turns into a feeling

Soul comforting

Rating

The first reviewer said "It reaches deep into your heart and tells you everything will be okay." That sold me! I very much had to see for myself. What a pure, sweet, wholesome fragrance. I was excited to learn that absolutes could be made from needles; whatever would have been lost to distillation sure twinkles happily here. My only regret is I did not discover this sooner. It really does touch something way down deep, quiets anxiety, gives you a fresh but familiar outlook upon first sniff. An oil to cherish! I look forward to wearing this as a single scent as I welcome another winter.
