Our Black Spruce Essential Oil is a strengthening shield that has been used for centuries in Europe and North America for its plant properties. Used by the Lakota Indians in spiritual ceremonies, the essence of spruce inspires communion with the divine. While many essential oils that hail from the evergreen family are sharp and vigorous in their scent and affect, Black Spruce essence is gentle, understated, and subtle.
Because of its reputed ability to release blockages and rev respiration, it has been used historically in hot spring baths, saunas, and massage. It pushes through emotional and spiritual impasses and stirs feelings of peace, balance, and a sense of being comfortable in one's own skin can all be attributed to spruce.
"The trees are a standing night, and every fir and spruce which you fell is a plume plucked from night's raven wing."
~ Henry David Thoreau, The Allegash and East Branch
"Spruce oil smells sweet and soft, warm and inviting, like an evergreen forest that wants to envelop, protect, and bring you back into balance."
~ Roberta Wilson, Aromatherapy: Essential Oils for Vibrant Health and Beauty
"Black spruce is a bracing, revitalizing tonic and steadying nervine. It is simultaneously elevating and grounding. Psychologically, it imparts fortitude and firm self-reliance."
~ Kate and Peter Damian, Scent and Psyche
