Product Abstract: Native to the European mountains, the evergreen Abies alba – better known as the Silver Fir tree – was the first large, coniferous botanical to be commonly used as a Christmas tree. The name Abies is Latin for “rising one,” in reference to its height, and the name Alba is Latin for “bright” or “white” and is suggestive of the white color of its wood. The flat, needle-like leaves of this tree yield an essential oil that is also referred to as White Fir Essential Oil and Fir Needle Essential Oil. Its scent evokes images of forests. Popular applications for this essential oil include air fresheners, bath blends, perfumes, and other cosmetic products. Historically, it was used in medicinal products such as cough remedies.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
