Blue Spruce Essential Oil
100% Pure Blue Spruce (Picea pungens) essential oil. This is a special small-batch, harvested and distilled in Western North Carolina from healthy/un-sprayed landscape trimmings. Blue Spruce oil has a comforting and beautiful aroma and is a respiratory aid. It has a slightly sweet and citrusy top note with green balsamic middle notes on top of a strong camphor base.
This limited batch of Blue Spruce (Picea pungens) essential oil was made from 50 lbs of no-spray landscape trimmings from Weaverville, NC. The species is native to the Rocky Mountains but can grow here in the Southern Appalachians as a stately landscape specimen. It is a very hardy tree that requires little to no maintenance. You may also find this species called “Idaho Blue Spruce” or “Colorado Blue Spruce.”
We don’t often have access to this species so this small batch (just ten 5ml bottles) is very limited. It is also very concentrated; each 5ml bottle has the aromatic essence from 5 lbs of fresh needles and small branches! 10% or less dilution is suggested for topical use or for a chest/beard oil that clears the respiratory system. It is reported to have hormone-mimicking properties and increase testosterone levels.* It is also anti-bacterial and fantastic in the bath or shower; we like to drop a few drops of the pure oil on the shower curtain for an aromatherapeutic steam-shower experience. We find the pleasing forest-y aroma has a comforting effect on the mood and mind.
