I can’t begin to tell you how much I love this oil! When I’m trapped inside for whatever reason, diffusing douglas fir essential oil takes me to a happy mental stroll in nature. Specifically the wooded nature of my memories. Having grown up in Colorado, I’ve spent many a day in the Rockies and this oil takes me back there. Yes, it’s one of my many favorites . . . along with the rest of the fir oils. Okay, if we’re being honest, I have a reason to love almost every oil on any given day. They’re all so special, each in their own unique way.
Aside from my little memory jags, douglas fir essential oil (like most firs) is known for uplifting spirits and supporting respiratory systems — as well as diffusing stress and anxiety. It can be diluted and massaged into sore, tired muscles for relief. So many uses in these little bottles!
