Balsam Fir Product Sheet

Balsam Fir oil is steam distilled from the needles of Balsam Fir trees. It has a distinctively woodsy aroma that conjures up the scent of the great outdoors as well as the winter holiday season. While Balsam Fir makes a wonderful addition to holiday blends, it also has many year-round uses.

With an uplifting yet soothing effect, Balsam Fir is an excellent oil for calming muscles and joints after a long day or intense workout. When diffused or applied topically to the chest, this oil can help support a healthy respiratory system. Additionally, Balsam Fir is cherished by many for its emotional balancing effects.

For muscle relief after a strenuous exercise, dilute to 2-5% in a carrier oil of your choice and massage into the affected areas. Alternatively, you can add a few drops to your favorite unscented lotion. For respiratory distress, diffuse Balsam Fir oil, apply diluted to your chest or add a few drops to a warm bath.
The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that Essential Oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical Aromatherapy. All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.

5.0 5  Not a Xmas tree review

If you love woodsy oils, add this one to your cache. It smells like a balsam fir tree. It does not smell like shop bought candles at Xmas, it is not overwhelming in the least. It is more of a fall-winter walk thru the woods balsam fir aroma than sun beating down summer hike thru the evergreens aroma. It is more reminiscent of cedar than pine. Definietely helps with breathing around here.

4.0 5  Woody

I love the scent of this oil. It's nice in the winter when you want something more earthy and calm and not so bright. It doesn't work well in a passive diffuser though. I put it in my very small bathroom in a passive reed diffuser and can't really smell it like I can the brighter smells. I also seem to need a bit more when using a water diffuser as well. But it does smell nice!

When my lungs feel uncomfortable, after dusting or being around too many powered down birds I diffuse this when I go to sleep. It truly helps to relieve the uncomfortable feeling, love it!
