A powerful essential oil from the pine family, this woody, refreshing fir oil is grounding, cleansing, and soothing. Black Spruce is slightly sweeter in scent than some of the other fir oils; its harmonizing aroma is perfect for your next diffuser blend or evening massage. Bornyl acetate, the main chemical constituent in Black Spruce oil, promotes calmness and relaxation. Black Spruce’s invigorating, rejuvenating aroma is used in aromatherapy to help maintain feelings of clear airways and easy breathing. Its aroma also creates an environment of harmony and balance. In fact, Black Spruce is one of the oils included in the doTERRA Balance® Grounding Blend.

After strenuous exercise, or when your body is in need of topical support, massage Black Spruce into the skin with a carrier to create a soothing, comforting massage. Diffuse Black Spruce or apply to the back of the neck throughout the day to create feelings of harmony and balance. The refreshing aroma of Black Spruce essential oil is often used in aromatherapy to help maintain feelings of clear airways and easy breathing.
