Conifer Blog Posts

conifer essential oilsOver the last few years, I’ve written a few blog posts on different conifer essential oils.

Conifer essential oils are just wonderful. Not only do they smell like you’re smack in the middle of a pine forest, but they have a multitude of medicinal and emotional benefits.

This post on Balsam Fir describes the essential oil’s chemistry and medicinal uses.

If you’re interested in immune stimulating effects–and a recipe for an inhaler that relieves a cold, sinus infection, or headache due to congested sinuses–the post on Utah Juniper is for you.

And if you’re interested in the more human side of conifer essential oils, like the amazing distillers who create them with such love, perhaps you’d like to hear about a wonderful Canadian distiller we visited a few years ago.

Want to learn more about Pine, Spruce and Fir essential oils, we are offering a 3-day conifers aromatherapy class every summer in Ithaca, NY called Component Blending. During the class, you learn to make your own cream, bar soap, resin incense and a Cardamom salt butter scrub!

I can vouch for the usefulness of conifer essential oils. I put a few drops of Aromatics International’s Conifer Blend on a tissue for a loved one to inhale. Her sinuses cleared up and she was in a better position to fight off the virus going around at work! I just checked in an effort to share the link but the product is currently out of stock. But that’s to the Wayback Machine, here is another link so that you can read more about it: http://bit.ly/1a2mg2J

This is a blend of Silver Rir (Abies alba), European Black Pine (Pinus nigra), and Himalayan Pine, aka Butan Pine (Pinus wallichiana). When my sinuses are working beautifully, I find the aroma overpowering but when I NEED it, it smells great – fresh and revitalizing.
