Balsam Fir, an evergreen tree native to North America, has been used for many years by Native Americans as a healing balm for wounds. This oil, both uplifting and grounding, is very helpful in aiding injuries of many kinds, both physical and emotional.
When diffused, Balsam Fir is a potent respiratory oil that can provide relief from asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, chronic cough, nasal congestion and similar ailments. Balsam Fir's therapeutic benefits can be enhanced by combining with Eucalyptus radiata, Tea Tree or Lavender.
Balsam Fir also possesses warming and analgesic properties that make it an excellent aid for arthritis, muscle & joint pain and rheumatism. It's gentle enough to be used neat on small areas, or can be mixed with a carrier or massage oil for use on larger portions of the body.
Balsam Fir is not as effective as Peppermint in alleviating intense pain, but is valued for its ability to act on a deeper level to tone and strengthen.
Balsam Fir is also quite effective in helping to release emotional issues that are so often at the root of physical illness. It can aid in providing mental clarity, thereby helping the release of stifling mental patterns that can undermine health and relationships.
