Commonly referred to as White Spruce, this is a large conifer tree that grows up to 50 meters tall. It produces small brown cones and has an estimated lifespan of 1,200 years and is very similar to Tsuga Canadensis, with very slight differences. Historically, Native North Americans heated the branches in steam baths called sweat lodges. By boiling the twigs and cones in maple syrup, they also made a type of beer.
White Spruce Oil is an organic, uplifting elixir that captures the mighty healing powers of the majestic Canadian spruce tree. Steam-distilled from the fragrant needles of these effervescent evergreens, White Spruce Oil is the go-to remedy for respiratory ailments.
White Spruce Oil is stimulating, clarifying, and purifying. When inhaled into the lungs, it has been shown to strengthen the respiratory tract, break up mucus, clear blocked sinuses, and even soothe spasms. Just as a step outside on a fresh winter’s day can revitalize body and mind, a single whiff of White Spruce may be enough to bring the body’s systems into a grounded state of homeostasis.
Emotionally, White Spruce Oil is said to impact the brain and the heart like a natural antidepressant by encouraging the body’s nervous systems to release feel-good chemicals like dopamine and noradrenaline.
Spruce white essential oil is an exotic addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, perfumery, and aromatherapy.
