GENERAL INFORMATION FOR WILDCRAFTED FIR NEEDLE ESSENTIAL OIL:
Our wildcrafted Canadian Fir Needle essential oil from Artisan Aromatics comes from Fir (Abies) trees that are a genus of 48–56 species of symmetrical, evergreen, coniferous trees belonging to the pine family Our fir needle essential oil, Abies balsamea, specifically comes from the mountain regions of Canada.
Native people have long since used the oil from the needles as a first aid for cuts and scrapes because of its healing properties. Numerous chemicals found in this essential oil such as alpha-pinene are known for controlling various bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus. Traditionally, fir needle has been used as a natural analgesic for minor aches and to relax muscles. It is sometimes used as an additive for massage oils because of these natural properties.
Although it is still too early, there is promising research underway to study its effects on preventing and reducing certain cancers. One component of fir needle called alpha-humulene has shown promising anticancer activity with a number of tumor cell lines including MCF-7 (breast), PC-3 (prostate), A-549 (lung), DLD-1 (colon), M4BEU (melanoma) and CT-26 (colon).
