About: Douglas fir trees can grow hundreds of feet tall. Their deeply aromatic pine needles are collected and steam-distilled to produce this woody essential oil whose aroma is deep and refreshing like a log cabin in the woods. Its fresh scent stimulates the lungs and sinuses and cleanses the air. It can be diffused when there is sickness in the home to support a healthy family.

Common Uses: 1 drop of Douglas fir in a dab of lotion can be rubbed onto sore joints and muscles.

Diffuse Douglas fir in the home to cleanse the air, support healthy immunity, promote the respiratory system, and help maintain calm in stressful situations.

Blend Douglas fir into body care products to add a woody-fresh scent.

Blending Recommendations: Douglas fir has a woody, rich scent that brings the forest into our homes. It can be used in blending as a woody base note with a minty-clean top end. It blends well with other woody scents and mints.
