Balsam Fir for respiratory support during the Christmas season

Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea) a tree used as a Christmas tree today- they are majestic in nature. Balsam Fir has been prized through the ages for its medicinal effects and ability to heal respiratory conditions and muscular and rheumatic pain. The essential oil is steamed distilled from the needles and twigs of the Balsam Fir tree. 

You may want to reach for the essential oil, when one is feeling congested with a runny nose and cough. If you love the smell of Christmas you will love the woodsy, piney, warm, fresh, and balsamic scent of the essential oil. Energetically and emotionally Balsam Fir will help uplift your spirit and feel stabilized. 

Balsam Fir has many properties such as; anti-inflammatory, anticoagulant, analgesic, sedative, soothing, stress-reducing, antibacterial, antiseptic, decongestant, expectorant, and rubefacient.  

As an Aromatherapist, I push the safety use of essential oils to all my Clients. Never ingest essential oils and always dilute them before use with carrier oils such as jojoba, coconut oil, etcetera if using directly on the skin. A good way to use essential oils are by adding drops to diffusing jewelry or a diffuser. Drops of Joy offers a wide variety of beautiful jewelry. You may use my code and link.
