IDAHO BALSAM FIR
Idaho Balsam Fir essential oil has a woodsy and refreshing aroma, and is grown and harvested at Young Living’s Highland Flats, Idaho farm. This oil can be diffused for a grounding, relaxing, and calming aroma, and to create a heightened spiritual environment during meditation. Idaho Balsam Fir includes the naturally occurring constituents beta-pinene and camphene, and is an important ingredient in many products including, Animal Scents™ Ointment, Deep Relief™ Roll-On, Believe™ and Gratitude™ essential oil blends, and BLM™.
Young Living’s Idaho balsam fir is harvested from Highland Flats Tree Farm, their farm in Naples, northern Idaho. Balsam fir looks much like a beautiful conifer tree—similar to something you’d decorate during the Christmas season.
The warm aroma of balsam fir soothes and rejuvenates body and mind. Known for supporting respiratory function, this herbaceous oil can be diffused for aromatherapy or diluted with a carrier oil for topical application. Also believed to create an uplifting sense of well-being, balsam fir is a 100 percent pure Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ essential oil distilled for the needles of the balsam fir tree.

“The trees are saturated with essential oil during these coldest months, the oils protect the needles from freezing.”
