Aromatherapist notes: I just love tree oils. When I was able to get my hands on Black Spruce I set out to find one that would have a good amount of bornyl acetate. Our black spruce averages about 30-40% of bornyl acetate in its composition. It's great to use during colds or just to ease tension in your shoulders after an emotionally draining day.
