Nothing says Christmas quite like a freshly cut evergreen fir tree! However, while it's loved for its refreshing scent and everlasting beauty, the people of New Zealand don't necessarily share the same sentiment. In fact, Douglas Fir, a type of conifer tree, is considered an invasive species and the government spend millions of dollars to control their spread. doTERRA lends a hand by producing Douglas Fir essential oil from the young trees to negate its environmental impact of displacing native plants.
Douglas Fir essential oil is noted for its fresh, clean and citrusy aroma that can be attributed to its main chemical components: B-pinene, a-pinene, 3-carvene, and sabinene. Place a drop into your palm, gently rub your hands together, and breathe in. You can also diffuse a couple of drops blended with Eucalyptus to get a clear sensation when inhaled.
To create a lively atmosphere at home or at work, diffuse with other citrus oils such as Wild Orange, Lemon, or Bergamot. Is your body craving for a massage? Combine Douglas Fir with 1–2 drops of Wintergreen for a soothing and invigorating massage!
You can also boost the cleansing power of your personal care products like body wash and soap by infusing them with a just drop of this oil. It'll smell so much nicer too!
