- Spruce Black
Harvested and distilled in Quebec's Laurentian forests
Also known as Canadian Black Pine
Mindfully picked and distilled in the remote forests of Quebec, this is a wonderful evergreen, great for all kinds of coniferous uses. Steam distilled from the needles and twigs.
All our evergreens are good for inner strength and can help with questions involving which path to take in life. The sweetness of the needles combined with the sturdiness and strength of the trunks and branches all exhibit a quiet strength. Spruce is good for sitting in that quiet place inside, and making it one's home. Spruces are like martial arts.

The scent is very pleasant, balsamic-fresh odor with a peculiar sweet-oily and slightly fruity undertone.
There is a lack of clinical data for the therapeutic use of spruce oils in aromatherapy but goes on to quote Schnaubelt and Holmes. Black spruce is considered to be more stimulating and ananglesic than the other spruces.
Spruce oils are considered to have a restorative action on the neuroendocrine-immune functions and the psychological uses are profound, including mental fatigue, burnout, low stamina, low vitality, and depression.
When suffering lingers too long, and defeat and exhaustion pervade all areas of your life, refreshing aromatic spruce descends deep into the unlimited energy reserves that lie dormant within your being.
Like the warmth of a radient sun upon your face, spruce activates the release of a haalthy energy flow from the adrenal glands to refresh and bring strength to each new day.
