ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

BALSAM FIR NEEDLE

balsam fir needleCool, fresh, green and resinous: balsam fir captures the aroma of northern woodlands. The oil is distilled from the needles and twigs of Abies
Balsamaea
, the evergreen fir tree of Eastern North America. The scent
inspires slow, deep breathing. Balsam fir also physically relaxes the body
during massage. Inhaling the fresh, foresty aroma of balsam fir helps to
center one's thoughts, while calming the mind and inspiring emotional
transcendence.
