Why We Love Fir Balsam

Why we love Fir Basalm essential oil - by Edens Garden

This warm weather has really got us wishing we were outdoors! It’s hard to stay motivated while you’re thinking about camping, hiking, fishing, and other summer festivities. That’s why we’ve been diffusing Fir Balsam in the office, to give us those camp vibes and to create a fresh forest atmosphere.

So what’s there to love about this oil? Fir Balsam is a great expectorant. So while your home or office space is smelling like a forest of fresh fir trees, you’ll be combatting those seasonal summer allergies as well. This marvelous oil also contains antibacterial, antispasmodic and antiviral properties, which is why we like to pop this oil in the Thera Lux to keep germs and mean microbes at bay.

What’s more? Fir Balsam is both soothing and penetrating, making it the perfect addition to a sore muscle and joint massage blend, which we love after a day of volleyball on the beach, soccer in the park, or a hike in the woods.

So no matter where your summer takes you, be sure to keep some Fir Balsam on you at all times. Lastly, let us know why you love Fir Balsam in the comments section below!

    Hi Dianna! When it comes to medical conditions, individual situations must be carefully assessed, therefore, it is not something you can put in a simple recipe. In aromatherapy scope of practice, we don’t treat diseases with essential oils. We use them to reduce stress, improve sleep, reduce some of the uncomfortable symptoms, and help people stay healthier by supporting peripheral issues. With that said, a natural health practitioner may be able to provide more specific instructions, ratios, recipes and suggest other oils/ carriers that would be good for what you need.

    I am relatively new to EO’s and this oil (Fir Balsam) sounds intriguing. I am hoping some folks familiar with it will post their experiences and share how they use it and what they like to blend it with. :)

    First time on site:
    1. Can you tell me what would be the most benifical of your oils for my need. I have sever flare ups with syadica, neropathy, arthritis and asorted foot problems. I was thinking a roller bottle app-liction on the underside of foot? Thank you in advance.1
