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
- Bronchial obstructions
- Cartilage Inflammation
- Fighting airborne germs/bacteria
- Furniture Polish
- Muscle Fatigue

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.
