Plant Description
Abies alba, also referred to as a “silver fir tree,” is an evergreen conifer native to the forests of Europe. A member of the Pinacae family, the Abies alba has the potential to grow taller than 100 feet, and thrives in the moist soil of high mountain forests. The wood of the silver fir tree is often used in construction because it is strong, versatile, and aesthetically appealing. It is possibly most commonly known for its use in the Christmas tree industry. White Fir essential oil is taken from the needles of the Abies alba, and emits a crisp, woody aroma.  
 
Chemistry of White Fir Oil
Main Chemical Components: Limonene, B-pinene, bornyl acetate
 
White Fir essential oil includes the monoterpenes limonene and beta-pinene, which are known for giving essential oils an uplifting aroma. Other essential oils with a high limonene content like Frankincense, Wild Orange, and Grapefruit are known for their ability to elevate mood when used aromatically—just as White Fir oil is known for its ability to have a calming, yet energizing effect when diffused. 
 
Oils that blend well with White Fir Oil
With a fresh, woody scent, White Fir essential oil blends well with other refreshing oils like Peppermint, Spearmint, and Wintergreen for diffusion. It also blends well with warm, spicy essential oils like Cinnamon, or Ginger. To create an energizing aroma, you might consider blending White Fir with Purify, Douglas Fir, or Cypress essential oils. 

Cautions
