Our newest Douglas Fir essential oil hails from the alpines of Queenstown, New Zealand. This Douglas Fir essential oil is produced from young branches and needles before they produce a cone. This has a two-fold reason; harvesting before cone maturation helps keep the population down of this invasive species plus distillation of the young needles and branches produces a premium quality essential oil with a clean and bright citrus/coniferous aroma.
Douglas Fir essential oil has a unique fresh sweet piney lemon aroma that sets it apart from all other conifers. Botanically, Douglas Fir is classified in the genus Pseudotsunga but is not actually a real fir because those are assigned to the genus Abies.
Douglas Fir blends well with Plai
essential oil for an aroma-therapeutic anti-inflammatory massage oil that also is said to benefit sore muscles. Aromatherapy use of this highly antibacterial and antimicrobial oil also includes a few drops in the diffuser or oil warmer for situations of cold and flu. We enjoy its fresh 'in the forest' aroma released when diffused that is refreshing and cleanses stale air.
