Diffuser: Promote a refreshing, calm atmosphere by adding 6-8 drops of Fir essential oil into a diffuser.
Quick fix: To manage stress or help clear your thoughts, take a few deep inhalations from the bottle. A quick and easy treatment when you are at work, in the car, or anytime you need a quick break.
Shower: Add 2-3 drops to a face washer and place in the corner of the shower to support the respiratory system.
Massage: Use a 2.5% dilution; up to 15 drops per 30 mls of carrier oil for sore muscles and stiff joints.
Steam Treatment: During colds or other respiratory conditions, add 2 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming hot water. Place your face close to the bowl and cover the back of your head and bowl with a towel to trap the aromatic vapours. Caution due to risk of burns or scalding and keep eyes covered during treatment.
Beautiful, sweet, and refreshing Fir has an affinity with the lungs and the mind so it would be perfect to add to your decongestant treatments or in blends that support the throat or crown chakra. Essential oils such as Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Chamomile, Kunzea, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Spearmint, Lavender, and Lemon blend nicely with Fir. The pine-like fragrance might overpower florals such as Rose or Neroli and ‘muddy’ some of the softer citruses like Sweet Orange and Mandarin. But, blending essential oils is an art form with plenty of room for experimentation. If you discover an amazing Fir essential oil blend, please consider sharing it with the ECO Facebook family, we are always excited to try new combinations of precious essential oils.
