Description

Why should I add Douglas Fir oil to my collection? Douglas Fir essential oil is almost entirely composed of chemical constituents with a monoterpene backbone. Like its piney relatives such as Siberian Fir essential oil, Black Spruce essential oil, and Cypress essential oil, the compounds a-pinene and δ-3-carene provide a stimulating aroma, surface cleansing properties, and soothing benefits to the skin. Of all the fir essential oils, Douglas Fir essential oil is particularly known for its aroma and use in massage.
