Black spruce essential oil is steam distilled from the needles and twigs of Picea mariana. Also known as black pine, these evergreen trees grow across Canada and parts of the United States. This middle note conjures fresh coniferous forests and is found in many winter and holiday-themed blends, but can be enjoyed year round.
This pungent oil can be used in body care salves and blended with carrier oils for massage. Enjoy its soothing, ground qualities in your diffuser. Like other oils from the pine family, black spruce can also be used in household cleaning recipes.
This oil is fresh and crisp with pungent, warm, and balsamic notes. The forest-like scent has sweet accents, creating a synergistic aroma profile.
Contains α-pinene, camphene, bornyl acetate. α-Pinene is in numerous oils such as St. John’s wort, angelica root, cistus, lavender tea tree, and valerian. Camphene and bornyl acetate are both found in Douglas fir, sage, and valerian oils.
Blending and Uses
Black spruce essential oil can be used to create beautiful diffuser blends to help us center and relax. Combine with cedarwood, Douglas fir, and spearmint for an invigorating experience or diffuse alone for a simple evergreen aroma.
