Douglas Fir trees are not a single species, as there are approximately 50 different species of Douglas Firs that thrive throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Many Douglas Firs are endemic to North America and are often used to complement garden landscapes. Pseudotsuga menzies is a coniferous, evergreen tree with scaly bark. It’s needles are pointed with two sides, and do not roll between fingers, because they are flat spreading or drooping branches. Douglas Fir can reach heights of 120 meters (394 ft). Douglas Firs are most closely related to cedars.
About The Oil
Fir needle essential oils share many therapeutic and aromatic characteristics. We’ve found Siberian and Balsam Firs to be very similar but this Douglas Fir to be uniquely outstanding in its depth and complexity. It is a beautiful distillation of “Doug” Fir, incredibly rich, with green, sweet resinous notes not found in other needle oils.
