About The Oil
This very fluid, clear essential oil is steam distilled from the needles of organically grown Siberian Fir trees. Considered one of the most popular fir needle oils in Europe, the aroma brings immediate memories of Christmas, as Fir trees are often grown as Christmas trees.
The aroma is bright and uplifting, yet also grounding, as evergreen needle oils tend to be. This oil has that rich and wonderful classic, brilliant Fir Needle aroma also found in Balsam Fir, but at a much lower cost.
Fir pine trees exude a resin called fir balsam. This was used by North American Indians for medicinal and religious purposes.
