I’ve had a bottle of White Fir for ages but never really gravitated towards it because I initially thought it smelled like Pine Sol cleaner! I couldn’t imagine why anyone would use it as aromatherapy. I remembered it being intense and harsh straight out of the bottle. Why would I use it when I have lovely oils such as Lavender, Clary Sage and Wild Orange??

Recently, however, I noticed how powerful its effects were when my sister diffused it at her home. I could literally FEEL A SHIFT in myself within minutes. It has a magical and very unique way of grounding while purifying, empowering and energizing at the same time. So here I am feeling inspired to look into it and share my findings.

It’s great used along the spine (the support center), on the bottoms of the feet (fast absorption into the bloodstream) and also diffused aromatically (hello brain receptors). Enjoy :)

Emotional Benefits

  • As with any “tree oils”, White Fir is a grounding oil. Think of a tree, whose roots reach deep into the Earth while its branches reach high into the sky and you’ll get a picture of the emotional affects of this oil.
  • Grounding yet empowering and uplifting. It leaves you feeling emotionally stable and strong enough to weather the storms.
  • White Fir is also known as the oil of generational healing and breaking patterns. We all have patterns passed down through our lineage that we carry with us. It really doesn’t matter what the pattern is (physical, emotional, mental spiritual), White Fir helps our bodies become conscious of the pattern, uprooting anything that no longer serves us.
  • It gives your spirit the courage to stand tall and grow in new forward directions without condemning or blaming anyone else for what they were capable of doing at their level of consciousness.

Precautions of White Fir Essential Oil

Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use and use on the feet when possible. Excessive use of any oil can lead to skin sensitization. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose. Not all oils are created equal, so test brands carefully, and never use an oil in a way not recommended by its maker.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON QUALITY

Not all oils are created equal. Because of a lack of industry standards and a lack of regulation on terms such as “natural” or “pure”, much of what you find at the drug store is NOT a therapeutic grade of essential oil and may lack real quality or even contain contaminants or adulterants (way more common than you’d think).

A LOT goes into creating a high quality essential oil. A good brand should follow these guidelines:

  • Proper plant varieties
  • Each plant grown indigenously for the healthiest plant
  • Grown without chemical pesticides, herbicides, etc
  • Harvested with precise timing to ensure peak properties
  • Extracted with proper temp and pressure to preserve oil molecules
  • Third-party testing of every batch
  • Stand behind the internal use of their oils
