Essential oil of
Siberian Fir Needle

by Penny Keay

Siberian Fir Needle Essential oil

Botanical names: Abies siberica
Country of Origin - Siberia
Processed - Steam distilled
Part used - needles
Smell - the "Christmas tree" aroma, refreshing, crisp scent of a forest
Color -clear
Note - Middle to top note

- There are many, many species of Fir Needle. We selected this one as we feel it more closely smells like the fir we associate with Christmas here in Minnesota.

Also it is more reasonably priced. Some Fir needle species are very expensive to produce but don't necessarily smell as good or are as representative.

All have the same properties and can be used the same for your Fir needle aromatherapy needs. Fir Needle and Pine Needle can be used in the same recipes.
