IMG_0572*Temporarily Out of Stock* Our next batch will be ready by December 1st. Christmas Tree in a bottle, literally! Steam-distilled from whole Fraser Fir trees grown in the Southern Appalachians. This smells so much like a fresh cut tree that people look for a tree when they walk in your house. Fresh green balsamic top notes with a mild sweetness and a beautiful earthy forest undertone. This oil is from “junk,” no-spray trees that are slowly being replaced on a series of farms in Avery County, NC.

SKU: N/A Category:


Batch AF-006 (September 2018):

The Fraser Fir trees for this batch are high elevation (4,000′), no-spray “junk” Christmas Trees because they are too large and haven’t been sprayed with pesticides, herbicides or fungicides for the past 8+ years. 

Fraser Fir (Abies fraseri), also known locally as the “She Balsam,” is a Western North Carolina native species, a relic from the last ice age’s southern Boreal forest, stranded on isolated sub-alpine mountain tops. The “She Balsam” name comes from the balsamic aroma, the soft-tipped needles and the “breast-like blisters” of sap that form on the trunk. It is one of the most common species used for Christmas trees and the majority of the Christmas trees that have graced the White House have been Fraser Firs from Western North Carolina. This species is famous for its long needle-retention time, soft needles and beautiful fragrance. Each 5ml bottle contains the pure aromatic essence of 1.5lbs of fresh needles and branches.

Fraser Fir oil is similar to Balsam Fir oil, although sweeter. It is a very powerful aroma and a few drops go a long way. Chemically-speaking, Fraser Fir oil is expectorant and respiratory-clearing. The aroma puts a smile on peoples’ faces and, not-surprisingly, this is our best-selling essential oil.

    We were excited to hear that Fraser Fir Essential Oil would be available and were really looking forward to getting it. Our order was quick to arrive and we have enjoyed it already. We buy a freshly cut tree every year, but as the season goes on, we get used to the scent and as the tree dries out, the effect is lost. This oil is the perfect way to bring the smell of Christmas back home.

    I’ve been searching for the perfect christmas tree smell, and this is it! I’ve tried pine, and balsam fir but neither had the exact christmas tree smell I was hoping for. This fraser fir oil is perfect, it smells just as I had hoped and I seriously recommend it if you want an essential oil that smells like a christmas tree.

      Hi Jane, thank you for your question. It has been some time since they placed an order with us but Blue Ridge Essentials in Lexington, VA is relatively close to Roanoke.
