ABOUT THE PLANT
A coniferous evergreen tree, the Siberian Fir is native to China, Mongolia, Eastern Russia and what is now the region straddling Iran and Afghanistan.
ABOUT THE OIL
This very fluid, clear essential oil is steam distilled from the needles of wild grown Siberian Fir trees.
This oil has a bright, pine top note with a slightly sweet menthol and honeyed middle note and balsamic, resinous undertones. Blending with other evergreen oils such as Pine, Spruce and Cedarwood can create a balanced, complex aroma. It also will blend well with Blue Chamomile, Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, and Myrtle.
Many essential oils from a variety of Fir species have been used for centuries. The trees were also traditionally planted throughout Europe for lumber, wood pulp, and for Christmas trees! Siberian Fir's overall action is considered stimulating and can be used to bring alertness to the mind. The properties of this are very similar to that of Balsam Fir -- uplifting, yet calming and grounding. Siberian Fir is considered one of the finest fir oils and is extremely popular in Europe. It is extensively used in perfumes, air fresheners, disinfectants, soaps, and detergents.
