Tsuga (Tsuga canadensis) essential oil has a fresh, clean scent. The oil is distilled from the needles and twigs of conifer trees. The bark from these trees was used by Native Americans to make poultices.
Tsuga is a coniferous evergreen tree native to eastern North America of the Pine (pinaceae) family also known as hemlock fir or hemlock spruce. Tsuga should not be confused with hemlock plants (cicuta and conium) as it is completely unrelated to the poisonous hemlock herb.
According to Wikipedia:
“”The common name hemlock is derived from a perceived similarity in the smell of the crushed foliage to that of the unrelated herb poison hemlock; see hemlock for other senses of the word. Unlike the herb, the species of Tsuga are not poisonous.”
Tsuga essential oil is similar to pine oil and is used in linaments. Tsuga has skin-cleansing properties and is spiritually uplifting. Its fresh aroma is the result of steam-distilling the needles and twigs of the conifer tree.
Tsuga has an approximate ORAC of 71,314 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
