Siberian FIR ABSOLUTE
Abies Sibirica L.
The Siberian fir tree is a tall, light in color, conifer tree native to Russia and Canada.
With a soft, fresh, woodsy, tranquil and evergreen forest-like scent, Siberian Fir Essential oil has long been recognized for producing comforting, stabilizing aromas, and stimulating the senses.
Siberian fir can be used topically and aromatically.
The following are some chemical components of Siberian Fir essential oil:
- Bornyl acetate – affects the pigment of the skin. Daily topical application of essential oils high in bornyl acetate may actually help lighten skin tone. Also often used for cleaning agents, for both air and surfaces
- Camphene – has therapeutic benefits, including reduces symptoms of respiratory conditions
- Alpa-pinene – helps protect the brain and eases anxiety
- Delta-3-carene – linked to feelings of stress because it interacts with neurotransmitters
- Muscle Recovery
- Respiratory Issues
- Improve sleep
- Helps with focus and reduces brain fog
Cosmetic and Body Care
- Relieves Pain. It is a beautiful oil to use in blends intended for respiratory issues and muscular aches and pains. Combine with Balm of Gilead for a massage into skin after exercise to revive muscles and for a soothing aroma. It contains approximately 30% Bornyl acetate, an ester that contributes to the oil's calming, balancing and anti-inflammatory benefits.
- Improves Skin. Add to nightly skincare routine to enhance the appearance of healthy-looking skin. Apply Siberian Fir essential oil topically to skin to help soothe minor skin irritations. Fir oils can help to improve blood circulation when used topically.
- Supports Respiratory Health. Inhale deeply and experience the refreshing aroma. It helps ease throat soreness and helps open the airways because of its high concentration of camphene.
- Hair nourishment. Personally, I like to massage pure Siberian Fir essential oil into my hair roots after washing my hair. It nourishes my hair and spreads a pleasant aroma, purifying the air. It is known to promote hair growth and reduce hair loss by balancing the oil-producing glands in the scalp. It also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which can treat different conditions that may contribute to dandruff or hair loss. You can think of various creative usage methods, adding it to your shampoo, conditioner, or lotion. You can use it before, during, or after wash. Also, you can use it straight as it is or dilute it with water or oil.
Household / Aromatic use
- The most popular way to use it is with an essential oil diffuser. You can diffuse Siberian fir by itself or blend it with other oils. For example, diffuse Siberian Fir Ess.oil for a calming aroma when working. Siberian fir can be used aromatically to balance emotions, reduce stress, and uplift the mood.
- Reduces stress. Known for its calming and relaxing effects, this is a great oil to diffuse after a long day. Both the alpha-pinene and delta-3-carene interact with neurotransmitters, which help support the brain.
- You can also use Siberian Fir Ess. oil aromatically by making a room spray and misting it into the air. Add 10 drops to a spray bottle with water for a refreshing room spray.
- Putting a couple of drops in the palm of your hand and cuffing them over the nose, or by simply sniffing them straight from the bottle.
