    BALSAM FIR USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    Balsam Fir Needle Oil (Abies Balsamea), also called Balm of Gilead Fir, has an aroma that recalls the unmistakeable scents of the yule holiday season. The Balsam Fir tree grows all over Canada and from the North Central Eastern US, From Minnesota to Maine. The essential oil is used in potpourri, diffusers, or drops can be added to a basket of pine cones, pods, or other dense, absorbent material for the aroma of a natural Balsam Fir tree. It is known for its soothing effect on sore muscles, and makes a wonderful addition to massage oils.

    Balsam Fir Needle Oil is steam-distilled from the tree's fresh needles. The woody, sweet, mossy, herbal aroma of this very fluid, clear oil is bright and uplifting, yet also grounding, as evergreen needle oils tend to be. As a simple aromatic, Fir is highly prized. It may be used in a diffuser or candle lamp to bring that "forest green" scent to any space. Its overall action is considered stimulating, and can be used to bring alertness to the mind, or diluted and applied topically to the adrenal areas or the body in general it may help general fatigue. Fir oil is also indicated as an analgesic, and can be diluted in a carrier oil for massage in cases of arthritis, muscular aches and pains, and rheumatism. It has been included in some cough and cold remedies, and may act as an expectorant. The essential oil has been researched for its ability to kill airborne germs and bacteria.

    Blending with other evergreen oils such as Pine Needle, Swiss Pine and Cedarwood can create a wonderful, complex deep forest aroma. Fir essential oil also blends well with Blue Chamomile, Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon and Myrtle essential oils.
