This Douglas Fir essential oil sourced from New Zealand is of exceptional quality and has a unique, clean, and bright citrus/coniferous aroma with a slight fruity-floral note that sets it apart from all other conifers. The oil is extracted from the young branches and needles before they mature into a cone, which not only produces a premium quality essential oil but also helps control the population of this invasive species. The fruity-floral nuance of this essential oil makes it particularly ideal for use in artisan perfume blends and a wide range of fragranced products. It is worth noting that although the Douglas Fir belongs to the Pseudotsuga genus, it is not a real fir, which can be confusing to some.
Douglas Fir essential oil blends beautifully with Plai essential oil to create an aroma-therapeutic anti-inflammatory massage oil that benefits sore muscles. Its astringent properties make it perfect for use in formulations for oily skin. The oil is highly antibacterial and antimicrobial, making it ideal for use in aromatherapy, especially during cold and flu seasons. When diffused, the fresh, forest-like aroma of this oil refreshes and cleans stale air, providing a sense of rejuvenation and relaxation. If you are a perfumer or simply love unique and appealing aromas, we highly recommend trying the Douglas Fir essential oil sourced from New Zealand.
