Fir Needle, Silver: Abies Alba
Is also sometimes referred to as White Fir Needle and Austrian Fir. It is therapeutically considered one of the better conifers. It helps open the airway, relieves sinus congestion, prevents headaches, cleans the inside air space and improves quality of household health especially in the cold months.
The aroma is piney, pleasant and clean and consistent with other conifers. On the scent continuum it falls into the green category and as expected would blend nicely with Pine, Juniper and Cedar leaf. It also synergizes with galbanum, mint, and some citrus, especially lime. It is similar to Siberian fir but doesn’t have a high camphor and camphene content. Most distillations are rather high in common terpenes like alpha pinene and limonene. The Oil Shoppe’s Silver Fir is hydro distilled and has a slight green hue from the water passing through the biomass.
