SPRUCE, BLACK | Essential Oil

  • $14.00

Pure Picea mariana essential oil.

Black spruce, or Picea mariana, is a type of spruce that grows in North America and Siberia. It is a small tree with dark purple cones. It has a pleasant, balsamic-fresh odour with a peculiar sweet-oily and slightly fruity undertone. 

It is traditionally used for grounding, uplifting, and treating respiratory issues. It has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, making it useful in treatments for sore muscles. Its refreshing and radiant aroma and complex forest scent make it a well-appreciated top and middle note in perfumery.

Essential oils, absolutes, and other pure plant extracts should not be applied to the skin without being properly diluted in a cosmetic carrier (such as jojoba oil, ethanol, epsom salts, etc.) Always patch-test when using an essential oil or absolute for the first time, and research whether or not the extract you are using is skin-safe, or that it is appropriate for its intended use. Do not ingest essential oils or apply them internally, and avoid contact with the eyes. Keep out of reach of children and pets, and consult a knowledgeable health practitioner before use when pregnant or breastfeeding. Store in a cool and dry area.
