If you can be in love with an Essential Oil, I am in love with White Fir!
It had me at hello....well, at first sniff anyway!
|White Fir Essential Oil|
I use it in my deodorant, several of my diffuser blends, my arthritis blend and anything else I can get away with using it in. I especially love to diffuse it with other woodsy oils, such as Cypress, Frankincense and Birch. I know that Birch's main scent is a mint smell, but if you give it a chance, you'll catch the wood smell in there too...it is from a tree after all, you know!
Now that we've cleared that up, however, on to White Fir!
White Fir is distilled from white fir needles, this oil has a crisp scent and comes from Austria. White Fir is a powerful anti-oxidant with a high ORAC score. It has been use for deodorants, disinfectants, rubefacients and stimulants.
If you're wondering what on earth ORAC is, it is the "oxygen radical absorbance capacity", which measures the free radical destroying potential of a particular food.
Analgesic, Anticatarrhal, Antiseptic, Anti arthritic, Stimulant
White Fir essential oils have been used for tense muscles, fever, chills, coughs, and help with the body's natural defense system.
Diffuse to fight airborne bacteria, germs and to stimulate the mind while allowing the body to relax. Apply topically to reduce aches from cold and flu and exercised muscles.
Can be used aromatically and topically(apply NEAT)

White Fir can be substituted for Frankincense in most cases, and it has been referred to as the Poor Man's Frankincense.
Here are three of my favorite ways to use White Fir, my Arthritis Blend, My Walk in the Woods Diffuser Blend and my Woodsy Winter Day Diffuser Blend.
