Just in time to add to christmas tree-themed diffuser blends is a new pine and balsam scented essential oil. Black Spruce essential oil is distilled from the needles and branches of the Picea mariana tree through a co-impact sourcing effort in Canada.
Like many evergreen essential oils, the aroma is redolent of a deep forest, and it has skin-soothing benefits as well.
It makes a terrific edition to pre-workout massage oils and creams, or joint rubs. Always mix with a carrier of some kind, like fractionated coconut oil.
In diffuser blends, it pairs well with other tree scents, citrus essential oils, and strong spices like black pepper, ginger, or clove.
