Balsam Fir Product Template Sheet

Balsam Fir oil is steam distilled from the wood 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.

I'm so happy Plant Therapy is now offering Balsam Fir. I received this w few days ago and absolutely love the scent. Comparing to another brand I own, this oil has such a bright Christmas scent. Enjoying using this on my sore muscles!

Fantastic smell

I love this oil. I use it in my diffuser and I can't wait to come up with some holiday blends to use this with.

This oil has a sweet pine smell. I love it. I read that it has antiseptic properties so I like to diffuse it to cleanse the air.

Smells like a fresh forest after it rains

I have a bottle of balsam fir room spray that I've been in love with for years so I was really excited to try this out. I'm very picky when it comes to the perfect essential oil "christmas tree scent". While this oil does not smell like the spray I have been using, it does smell very woodsy and christmasy. It's what I would call a "warm" scent meaning it is a thicker scent than other tree oils (in my opinion). I think this would definitely work if you're looking for a more "manly" scent than traditional oils. As weird as it sounds, this oil smells like a wet fir/pine forest. Smelling it straight from the bottle is pretty strong and overpowering, but give it a try in a diffuser (or whatever you prefer to use it for) and the scent will transform. I'm very excited to diffuse it during the winter as I think it will add a nice holiday vibe to my apartment, but I will say that this is not the exact christmas tree scent I've been looking for. I think it will mix well with pine and even cinnamon or clove in the diffuser.
