Balsam Fir

Balsam Fir is derived from the Latin scientific name “Abies” – meaning “fir trees” – and “balsam” – meaning “balsam-like.”  Its uplifting fragrance is known for helping individuals overcome winter blues and encouraging feelings of satisfaction and delight. The best time to harvest Balsam Fir is during colder months, when the needles of this majestic tree contain the highest amount of rich oil.


Balsam Fir oil has been used for hundreds of years, both ritualistically and as an external treatment, to soothe occasional cuts, bruises and skin irritations.  It was also consumed internally to promote normal respiratory function.  Balsam Fir oil is used extensively to soothe sore areas by increasing circulation.  Its wintery aroma eases stress and tension naturally and effectively.  Balsam Fir grounds the body and empowers the mind by aligning the sacral and heart chakras, balancing emotions, and improving one’s mood.

I’m loving diffusing Balsam Fir…especially since I have an artificial tree!
