Aromatherapist Recommendations:

  • This is a bright and uplifting essential oil, yet, as with most evergreen needle oils, also grounding. Fir is a stimulating essential oil, and can be used to bring alertness to the mind, or diluted and applied topically to the adrenal area or the body in general it may help general fatigue.
  • Fir oil is also indicated as an analgesic, and can be diluted in carrier oil for massage in cases of arthritis, muscular aches and pains, and rheumatism. It has been included in some cough and cold remedies, and may act as an expectorant - the essential oil has been researched for its ability to kill airborne germs and bacteria.
  • To create a wonderful 'forest' aroma a few drops of Fir essential oil can be blended with 1 or 2 other evergreen oils such as Pine, Spruce and Cedarwood.  It also blends well with Blue Chamomile, Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, and Myrtle essential oils.
