Balsam Fir (Idaho, Abies balsamea) is a North American conifer native to the northeastern United States, most of eastern and central Canada and parts of the south (Appalachian Mountains to West Virginia).
It produces a woodsy, pine-scented essential oil that has a refreshing and uplifting scent familiar to many people as the fragrance of Christmas trees. Diffuse it for a grounding and calming aroma.
About Idaho Balsam Fir
Balsam fir is a beautiful conifer tree. Although it grows in many parts of the United States and Canada, Young Living’s balsam fir is harvested and distilled in northern Idaho in the winter, often times when snow is falling.
At the balsam fir winter harvest in northern Idaho, the entire tree is cut and delicately distilled. Gary Young personally selects the trees and oversees the entire harvest and distillation process. During the past few harvest seasons, Gary has also invited Young Living members to participate in this unique event.
ORAC Value: Idaho Balsam Fir has an approximate ORAC of 205,047 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
How to use:
Topical: Apply 2-4 drops directly to desired area. Dilution not required, except for the most sensitive skin. Use as needed.
Aromatic: Diffuse up to 1 hour 3 times daily.
Massage: To use as part of therapeutic massage, mix one part balsam fir with one part Young Living V-6™ Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex and massage onto trouble spots. The primary natural plant constituents absorbed through the skin are alpha-pinene, beta pinene, camphene, and limonene. When used together, these key constituents can work to soothe localized muscular discomfort.
