As you would expect, Balsam Fir smells like a Christmas tree! This earthy, evergreen aroma, to me smells similar to Siberian Fir but less sharp, similar to Douglas Fir but less sweet, and somewhat like Cedarwood. Historically, Native Americans have used balsam fir for a variety of ritual and wellness purposes. Today, it is often used for its brilliant aroma. It produces an enlivened, bright, fresh atmosphere and can transform any environment into a welcoming, sanctuary. Diffuse Balsam Fir throughout your home to experience its majestic aroma.
Balsam Fir can be used aromatically in a diffuser, room sprays, on diffuser ornaments or jewelry, as a surface cleaner, or simply place a drop into cupped hands and inhale deeply. Balsam Fir can also be used topically by combining with a carrier oil and rubbed into the area of focus, added to this Bath Bombs recipe, making a Soothing Salve, or added to an Epsom Salt Bath. Balsam Fir is not used internally.
