Having a sharp mind doesn’t necessarily mean you must have tension in your body. Relax and focus with Silver Fir essential oil. Commonly referred to as "White Fir", Silver Fir is fresh and slightly-camphorous aroma evokes stability, energy and empowerment.
Native to North America and Europe, Fir trees produce needle-like leaves and have soft, odorless wood. There are about 40 different species of fir trees on the planet. To extract the essential oil, the leaves are put through a steam distillation process. Keeping a bottle of Silver Fir at your workplace is remarkably helpful in keeping up the day’s energy.
