Balsam Fir Organic Essential Oil (Oshadhi) 10ml

Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea)Balsam Fir Essential Oil


Soothing for the Breath and Muscles

The Canadian Balsam Fir has a warm, refreshing, balsamic fragrance reminiscent of a crisp, pristine forest associated with the Christmas holidays. It is soothing for coughs, sore throats, colds, and flu, especially when there is congestion. It warms and relieves sore, stiff muscles and joints. Its uplifting quality makes it useful for depression and stress.

This is a certified organic pure therapeutic-quality aromatherapy essential oil from Canada and is obtained from the needles of the tree.

You are likely already familiar with the fir tree from which balsam fir is made from, as it is one of the most commonly used trees for decorating at Christmas. Homes and business abound with not only the tree but its boughs as well. Its scent can bring back pleasant childhood memories, but there are also several other proven benefits and uses of balsam fir essential oil.

Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea)What Does Balsam Fir Essential Oil Smell Like?


Most evergreen trees have a similar scent. This included trees like white pine, cypress, juniper, and the fir tree. We are usually reminded most of the pine, which we also tend to associate with the smell of clean. This is due to the popularity of evergreen essential oils in cleaning agents as they possess powerful antibacterial components. Fir itself is more subtle than pine and not as overpowering. It can be slightly woody and grassy beneath the evergreen smell.

Popular Uses


  1. Improve Mood - Diffuse this oil throughout your house and office to improve your mood, reduce your feelings of stress, and bring back happier memories. Applying to your wrists or neck will allow you to carry the scent with you even when you are not near the diffuser.
  2. Natural Disinfectant - Prepare a spray combining fir oil with other antibacterial and antifungal oils such as lemon or tea tree to keep your kitchen free of germs. Add a tablespoon or two of vinegar for a deeper clean.
  3. Prevent Premature Aging - Add 1-2 drops of fir oil to your moisturizer and apply to your face to prevent and repair any signs of premature ageing. You can make your own with jojoba as a carrier and apply to the areas of skin that may already be showing signs of ageing.
  4. Natural Deodorant - Add 1-2 drops to a skin friend carrier oil and dab under the arms or other odorous body areas. This can be applied before your other deodorant for added odour prevention.
  5. Massage - Add 1-2 drops of balsam fir oil and peppermint oil to a carrier to make a massage treatment that will help ease any muscle aches you may have.
  6. Important - When applying topically, always dilute Balsam Fir essential oil with a carrier oil.

Balsam fir oil blends well with other "green" oils like cypress and pine (Pinus sylvestris), citrus oils like lemon, frankincense, black pepper, and more.

Essential OilImportant Information


  • * Essential Oils are highly concentrated extracts of medicinal plants, very powerful in their effect and should be used with moderation and great care.

Essential oils used for massage - general instructions for dilution


  • If used other than for ambient diffusion, i.e. for massages, essential oils should always be diluted in a good quality vegetable carrier oil before applying to the skin (i.e. sweet almond, sesame, jojoba, olive oil, etc.).
  • The standard dilution for adults is 1–3% essential oil, or about 3–10 drops of essential oil in 15 ml (= 1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil (20 drops = 1ml).
  • For children, sensitive skin and during pregnancy the dilution should be 0,5%-1% (1-2 drops in 10 ml).
  • For a full bath use for adults 5–15 drops and 3–5 drops for a footbath. The essential oils should be diluted with some carrier oil, a little cream or honey to help them disperse in the water.

Specific oils requiring higher dilution

 

  • Essential oils of Clove bud, Cinnamon (leaf or bark), Oregano, Savory, Thyme (thymol and borneol) can irritate the skin, use only highly diluted (0.5%—1% dilution).
  • For sensitive skin care should also be taken with Aniseed, Fennel, Lemongrass, Melissa (Balm), Peppermint, Sage, Wintergreen, and sometimes also Basil, Ginger, Lemon and Bitter Orange (1 - 3 % dilution).

Some precautions


  • These oils (except the citrus oils) should also not be used for children under 2 years and during pregnancy.
  • If pregnant avoid in addition: Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Juniper, Sweet Marjoram, and Myrrh.
  • If applying photo-sensitizing essentials oils like Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin or Lemon to your skin (even in dilution) do not expose your skin to direct sun for several hours afterwards (to avoid pigment spots). The furocoumarin free Bergamot is ok.
  • In case of high blood pressure Hyssop, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme (thyme) are contra-indicated; a gentle massage with relaxing essential oils, however, is very beneficial.
  • In case of Epilepsy do not use the essential oils of sweet Fennel, Hyssop, Rosemary and Sage.
  • If you have a medical condition we recommend that you seek the advice of a Maharishi Ayurveda practitioner or aromatherapist.
