Trees Of Winter
I used to live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The presence of Douglas Fir trees dotted our landscape for many miles. It is a rugged and strikingly beautiful terrain. The fragrance of these giants is also present, as you breathe in that sweet and balsam-like aroma everywhere. It is cleansing, grounding, uplifting, and restoring.
Plant Therapy gives us the gift of Fir trees this month with not one, but two essential oils. Douglas Fir and Silver Fir are the featured oils for the month of February. As they were going around the office to preview, I became excited for our customers as I took in the scent of the oils, one at a time. Douglas Fir essential oil has that familiar conifer scent with a subtle apple note to it. The Silver fir is different, yet also inspiring and boosting to the mind.
Many of you are familiar with the smaller trees as Christmas Trees, but the benefits are more far-reaching then December. Both essential oils have similar benefits. They can be used to cleanse the air, to boost mood, to clear congestion and stuffiness, for tight muscles and are excellent to use in DIY cleaning products as well. They could be wonderful used in a diffuser recipe or applied topically. Douglas Fir and Silver Fir blend well with many different essential oils. Oils such as citrus, floral, and other woodsy oils can each create a different beautiful blend with these two features.
