White Fir Essential Oil

White Fir EO

White Fir Essential Oil is made by steam distillation from needles.  Makes tons of sense as to the strong Christmas tree-like scent it has.  It’s noted to have an intensity of around 3, and has a woodsy, fresh, earthy, sweet smell.

It has analgesic, antiarthritic, anticatarrhal, antiseptic, expectorant, and stimulant properties.

Uses for this oil include

  1. Arthritis
  2. Asthma
  3. Bronchitis
  4. Bronchial obstructions
  5. Bursitis
  6. Cartilage Inflammation
  7. Coughs
  8. Energizing
  9. Fevers
  10. Fighting airborne germs/bacteria
  11. Furniture Polish
  12. Muscle Fatigue
  13. Muscle Pain
  14. Oxygenating the cells
  15. Overexercised Muscles
  16. Sprains
  17. Sinitus
  18. Rheumatism
  19. Reducing Aches and Pains related to colds and the flu
  20. Respiratory congestion
  21. Urinary Tract Infection

You can apply this oil neat (meaning no dilution required) to your reflex points and/or area of concern; and of course you can diffuse… especially during the Winter holidays!  Aromatically it creates a feeling of grounding, anchoring, and empowerment while it can stimulate the mind and relax the body.  Want to add more to your diffuser?  It blends well with Lavender and Frankincense.

So just be careful because this is an FDA approved oil to be used as a Food Additive and Flavoring Agent, but it’s not recommended for ingestion by children under the age of 6.  This can also create skin sensitivity… so PLEASE if you see that you are having a reaction to the oil, STOP using and consult your medical professional.

We Want To..

 

Our WantsEvery time we sit down to have a business meeting and assess the month that just passed and the month we’re going into, we stop and list our wants.  These are our wants.  We want to heal, educate, and make honest products!… and in that order!

We truly want to help people on every level.  Mackenzie has goals of completing courses in Nutrition and to become a Master Herbalist and Danielle has goals of becoming a Physician and practice in Natropathy and also become a Master Herbalist.

We find things out every day and we want to share our knowledge with everyone.  We want to teach you how to make things yourself and to learn more about the ingredients you are using.

And last, but not least, we want to make honest products.  We want to make products that you can trust, no matter what country you live in!  We want products that you know will be safe for you and not just because the FDA has approved a “certain amount” of “something” to be in it.  Some of our products may only last 30 days, but that’s because we’re not pumping them up with artificial preservatives so it can sit on your shelf for months at a time.

So when you see the name Two Simple Owls, you know that you are not only getting an honest product, but you have people building a company that want to heal and to educate.
