Balsam Fir Therapeutic Grade™ Essential Oil ~ Idaho
Idaho Balsam Fir Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil (Abies balsamea) is unique and exclusive to Young Living Essential Oils and is harvested yearly from Bonner's Ferry, our farm in northern Idaho.
Balsam fir looks much like a beautiful conifer tree—similar to something you would decorate during the Christmas season. At the balsam fir winter harvest in northern Idaho, the entire tree is cut and delicately distilled. At the balsam fir winter harvest, Gary Young personally selects each balsam fir tree and oversees the entire harvest and distillation process. What better way to ensure maximum purity and potency (read more about the Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ standard) than having one of the world's leading distillation experts present? During the past few harvest seasons, Gary has also invited Young Living members to participate in this unique event. Watch for upcoming information on how you can join Young Living for the 2010 Idaho Balsam Fir harvest!
Historical Data: The natural plant constituents in balsam fir essential oil have historically been prized through the ages for its effects and it has been used for a variety of issues, from supporting respiratory function to helping alleviate minor aches and pains associated with daily life. To use balsam fir for respiratory support, simply inhale straight from the bottle or include a few drops in a Young Living diffuser — the fresh pine scent is very grounding and relaxing. Balsam fir can also be beneficial as part of a therapeutic massage. To use, mix one part balsam fir with one part Young Living V-6™ Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex and massage onto area. The primary natural plant constituents absorbed through the skin are alpha-pinene, beta pinene, camphene, and limonene. When used together, these key constituents can work to soothe minor muscular discomfort.
Whether you want to soothe tired muscles or need some extra winter respiratory support, reach for the natural relief of balsam fir essential oil—available in 5 and 15 ml bottles.

I highly suggest educating yourself about the truth of essential oils by purchasing the Essential Oil Desk Reference book which contains a wealth of information on all of our products including details on each oil and what oils to use for specific situations.
*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Don't expect the same results unless you are using Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ Essential Oils and supplements. Also each person is unique and different in chemistry and toxicity levels, as well as emotionally and spiritually, so an oil that is suggested for an issue may not work as well as another. If a change is not apparent within three minutes, try another oil.
