Essential Oil Spotlight
Native to both Russia and Canada, the Siberian fir tree is a tall evergreen conifer. It is already being used in some familiar blends doTERRA offers like the Purify Cleansing Blend, where it is used to purify the air and protect against environmental threats. The scent also often reminds people of the Christmas season. If you’re familiar with the doTERRA Holiday Joy blend, you are probably already familiar with Siberian Fir—it’s the first ingredient on the bottle.
To create this refreshing and calming essential oil, harvesters collect the needles and twigs. Both components are then steam distilled.

Which is which?
Do you know how to tell the difference between pine and fir trees? They’re both evergreen conifer trees, but look closer at the needles. If you’ve got a stem with needles in groups of two, three, or five you are likely looking at a pine tree. If the needles are singly on the stem, and the needle feels flat and doesn’t roll between your fingers easily, it’s a fir tree.
Siberian Fir is available now and will replace White Fir in the single oils doTERRA offers.
