Balsam fir needle essential oil reminds some people of Christmas trees, which is no surprise as it comes from the evergreen tree (the same tree Christmas trees come from). The needles of the evergreen are used to create this fine oil which can be used to help healing during the cold and flu season. It is also excellent with muscle aches and chest colds.
The oil is sweet in fragrance with the sappy like scent, reminiscent of pine trees. It is harvested in Canada and the balsam fir is excellent for use in treating minor wounds, bronchitis, sinusitis, burns, muscle aches, pains, arthritis, rheumatism, and other inflammatory conditions. It is also excellent in combating stress and anxiety.
