Balsam Fir, one of the most versatile hydrosols, comes to us freshly certified organic artisan distilled. It has an uplifting fresh cut Christmas tree aroma. Uses of Balsam Fir hydrosol includes astringent, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory qualities that are well suited in toners for oily and acne prone skin types. As a circulatory stimulant it is said to help with muscular pain and swelling by increasing blood flow to the effected area. Suzanne Catty recommends using as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic compress with rheumatic, arthritic, or joint pain. This remarkable hydrosol also comes highly recommended for helping relieve SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), a type of depression that occurs during cold winter months when days lack sunshine and is sometimes referred to as the "winter blues". For many this can be an emotionally draining time of year. To help with SAD Suzanne Catty recommends adding a quarter cup Balsam Fir hydrosol to bath water (or in the shower with plug in) two or three times per week, particularly during winter.
