Organic Black Spruce
Black Spruce is a well-known tree throughout North America. Black Spruce essential oil is primarily harvested from trees in Canada.
The oil has traditionally been used for rheumatic muscle pain and to help with respiratory issues such as bronchitis. To use on sore muscles, mix 5-10 drops with a carrier oil and rub into the affected area 2 times per day.
For respiratory issues, dilute with a carrier oil and apply to the chest area. You can also use 2-3 drops in a sink of hot water and breath in the vapors.
Spruce is a great smelling oil and has been used in aromatherapy for centuries. Using spruce in a diffuser can help alleviate stress and has a very calming effect. Some people have stated it gives them a feeling of being on a hike in the woods or simply being outdoors on a nice walk.
We often use it in our moisturizing lotion blend.
