The Siberian fir tree is a tall, light in colour, conifer tree native to European Russia and Canada. Siberian Fir essential oil has a refreshing, woody scent that is known for its calming and relaxing aromas. Siberian Fir has a unique chemical composition that is predominately bornyl acetate, which provides a majority of the benefits of this essential oil. Siberian Fir can be very soothing to the skin, making it an ideal essential oil to add to a comforting massage. When diffused, Siberian Fir can help promote a relaxing and grounding atmosphere.
Siberian Fir is known as the Oil of Ageing & Perspective. “Siberian Fir addresses generational healing from the perspective of the mature. It assists during the twilight years as individuals transition into a more full, mature awareness. This period in one’s life cycle can be beset with losses of may kinds.
