Aroma: The aroma is fresh, green, and everything a quality Black Spruce should be. Slightly sweet, it whispers of the fresh and uplifting needles it was distilled form. The sweet notes pull you into a rich woodsy but resinous aroma that soothes the senses. I can just feel the tension leaving my shoulders, can't you?
Personal 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. This particular batch has just over 36% of bornyl acetate in its composition. If you take a moment you will find the beautiful Douglas-fir that we carry has a good percentage of that component as well. Compare these two oils side-by-side since they are both indicated for use during respiratory viruses.
Safety Data: There are no known safety issues from research with this essential oil.
