Canadian Black Spruce

Canadian black spruce trees are typically found in the cold, wet, swampy regions of Canada. The oil they produce has an earthy aroma and is extracted from the needle like leaves and twigs of the tree.

It has useful antibacterial, antiviral and antiseptic properties. It can be used to help relieve the symptoms of viral infections and the associated muscle aches and pains. It also contains natural plant compounds that help clear the sinuses and relieve respiratory symptoms.

This oil has a chameleon like effect on our mood. On the one hand it can calm and relax hyperactive or agitated moods. On the other, it can energise tired or lethargic moods and boost energy levels. It’s often used in meditation rituals meant to easy anxiety and stress.

Canadian black spruce helps to balance hormones too, in the pituitary, adrenal and thyroid glands.
