Eastern Hemlock Essential Oil
$20.00 – $30.00
100% pure Eastern Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) essential oil. No-spray, wild-crafted. Steam-Distilled from the needles, cones and twigs. Woodsy, balsamic, earthy. Also called Canadian Hemlock, this oil is grounding and promotes balance while also being effective at clearing sinuses and the respiratory system.*
Eastern Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) essential oil has become a customer favorite due to its deep-green woodsy aroma with a touch of camphor. Each 5ml bottle contains the pure aromatic essence of 4lbs of fresh needles and branches! This oil is particularly nice in the bath or just drop a few drops on your shower curtain/wall for a lovely bronchial-opening steam-effect.
Note that this is not the poison hemlock that was used for Socrates’ euthanasia. That one is an unrelated species; Conium maculatum.
The Southern Appalachian Hemlocks are under severe threat from the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid. We will only harvest Hemlock when an un-treated tree is trimmed or cut down for reasons other than essential oil, or is blown down in a storm. This batch (TC-008) was wild-harvested from a mature storm-felled tree in Pisgah National Forest near our Forest Farm.
