Black Spruce

Picea mariana

Historically used by Native Americans to promote skin health and as part of their spiritual healing practices, Black Spruce is a powerful wood essential oil. It is distilled from the needles and branches of the Picea mariana tree. After strenuous exercise, or when your body is in need of topical support, massage Black Spruce into the skin with a carrier to create a soothing and comforting massage. You can apply to the back of the neck throughout the day to promote feelings of harmony and balance.

Why Canada?

Black Spruce thrives in the cold, northern boreal forest. It is a member of the pine family and grows prolifically in the northern United States, Canada, and throughout the Arctic. The bark is dark grey, thin, and scaly; the needles are blue-green and short.

Black Spruce trees grow tall and thin, typically around 15 m tall and 50 cm in diameter, though some are as tall as 30 m with trunks 60 cm in diameter. The optimal growing conditions of the boreal forest allow Black Spruce to grow and thrive from one generation to the next.

How Does It Work?


Black Spruce is mainly harvested for the timber, pulp, and paper industries. Once the Black Spruce timber has been harvested and hauled away, our key partner goes in to gather all of the branches and needles that were left behind using a grapple arm excavator. These leftover materials are then steam distilled for a powerful and beautiful essential oil.

Environmental Impact in Canada

Historically, no one has been able to capture additional value from the remnant branches and needles of the Black Spruce tree. Until now!

  • After the Black Spruce remnants have been distilled, the branches and needles are taken to a local powerplant, where they are burned to produce energy
  • From this process they are also able to produce steam, which then powers the distillation process again
  • This creates a closed-loop system for maximum environmental sustainability and responsibility
