Douglas Fir

Pseudotsuga menziesii

Douglas Fir is a conifer that grows natively throughout North America. This tall, evergreen fir tree has a sweet and refreshing aroma with a light, lemony note! It is commonly used to purify the skin and promote a positive mood. Douglas Fir is sustainably sourced from young trees in New Zealand, where its overpopulation threatens the country’s ecosystem. By harvesting the young Douglas Fir trees and using them for essential oil, dōTERRA helps to combat the environmental impact of the trees overtaking the land.

Why New Zealand?

Although Douglas Fir is native to North America, it grows voraciously in New Zealand’s ecosystem and is overtaking the land. By harvesting and distilling young Douglas Fir trees from New Zealand, we are helping combat environmental harm from overpopulation of Douglas Fir trees while providing a sustainable, premium conifer essential oil.

How Does it Work?

   New Zealand

The Douglas Fir is a tall, evergreen tree. They are commonly used as Christmas trees and native to North America. The essential oil is distilled from the needles and branches. We are one of the few companies that uses only the needles and small branches for our oil, which produces the most potent, effective and high quality Douglas Fir essential oil – for our oil. Most other companies use the wood as well.

How it Helps

Douglas Fir is an invasive species in New Zealand. First introduced into New Zealand for the timber industry, Douglas Fir grows almost 20 times faster in New Zealand than in the US. Consequently, they have overtaken the land to the point that native plants are prevented from growing.

We are harvesting young Douglas Fir trees to help battle the negative environmental impact on New Zealand’s native plants and trees. By harvesting the trees when they are young—5 to 7 years old—it prevents the trees from getting to an age where they produce cones, which would exacerbate the problem further. Additionally, we work closely with the New Zealand government to collect and utilise the biomass (needles), which would otherwise be left on the side of the mountains or burnt following a commercial forest harvest for timber.

Environmental Stewardship in New Zealand

Douglas Fir grows at an agressive rate in New Zealand. doTERRA chose to source Douglas Fir essential oil in an effort to protect and preserve New Zealand’s native ecosystem. Here’s how it has helped:

  • If doTERRA didn’t remove the young, overpopulated Douglas Fir trees, then chemicals would be used to remove them – potentially impacting other species
  • After harvesting young Douglas Fir trees, native trees are planted in their place
  • doTERRA harvests trees before they’ve reached a cone-producing age, which stops the cycle from continuing
Most Tested. Most Trusted.
