Balsam Fir

Abies balsamea

The majestic, evergreen balsam fir tree produces a warming, refreshing essential oil. Native to North America, the tree can tower over 24 metres in height and produces needle-like leaves. Native Americans historically used balsam fir for rituals and wellness purposes. Primarily used for pulp and construction, the balsam fir tree does not respond well to urban pollution and is not plentiful in cities, preferring to grow in the woods where the air is fresh and clean. As a main constituent, ß-Pinene may be effective in soothing the skin when applied topically as part of a calming massage. Balsam Fir essential oil is steam-distilled from the bark of the tree, producing a fresh, woody aroma.
