Product Overview

Our superb organic Balsam Fir essential oil has a fresh, vibrant, deep balsamic, coniferous green aroma and a very light, clean terpenic top note like that released from freshly crushed fir tips.

In the eastern United States, Abies balsamea is the holiday season's tree of choice where, in days gone by, the sweet-smelling needles were sewed into sachets and sold to weary city folk![3] Bright and elevating, Balsam Fir essential oil is one that we highly recommend for use in diffusers to refresh the environment in enclosed spaces, especially in the winter months.

Coniferous trees such as Fir, Pine and Spruce, are truly the guardian trees of our planet‘s atmosphere, with their dense profusion of cleansing molecules constantly being released from the highest canopy to the outermost needles, and even in the underground world of the 'wood wide web'! In addition to the usual suspects (α- and ß-pinenes), chemical analysis of needle tree oils shows a broad variety of aromatic monoterpene molecules – a signature of fresh coniferous forest air – and accounts for why these trees are often referenced in the practice of Japanese 'forest bathing' or shinrin-yoku. This oil is a welcome ally to inhale after a day in the city or a long drive, as it enlivens the spirit with every breath.

Favorite Balsam Fir Ever.

Rating

This is the nicest balsam fir I've ever tried; it's so soft, rich, and sweet, and exactly as described in the aroma description, too. I like balsam fir best of the evergreen oils because it reminds me of Christmas at home, and this one really does take me back there. I plan to rebuy often.
