I purchased this after reading the other reviews and wanting a nice earthy forest-y scent to work with. I was so pleasantly shocked when I opened the bottle -- it has become one of my absolute favorite essential oils! Smells like our North Carolina Christmas trees -- as if I had set up a Christmas tree in the living room and had grabbed the bark/trunk and gotten the sap all over my hands. This is a wonderful, nostalgic, true EO and I am extremely glad I purchased it!

This is a wonderful fir balsam eo; smells so fresh and green and balsam-y. I use it in a shampoo for my husband, although I love it, too. Love the benefit of a natural element in a body care product. Very refreshing!

I am in love with this oil. It smells exactly like the Christmas trees I've always had, and like the forests of the Canadian Rockies. It's wonderful diffused with spruce and pine--smells just like the forest!

I'm a Forestry student at the Univerity of British Columbia and we study all sorts of trees....obviously, haha! Anyhoo, I got this Balsam Fir oil because I thought that this tree had such a wonderful and distinctive sent. This oil smells EXACTLY like the tree itself! There is no weird chemical smell or anything. This oil is so stunning! And super duper strong too. Holy smokes this oil is strong. Its a big bang for your buck! Which is good if you're a student! P.S. Also, I was watching Fraiser the other night and Fraiser recieved an invitation in the mail to an exclusive spa. Fraiser smelled the invitation and said "Ahhhh, the manly aroma of Balsam Fir...". Now I think of that everytime I smell it. Oh man, I love Fraiser....haha!

This oil is lovely, very high quality. I often prefer it to the strong, almost ammonia-like scent pine can have. It absolutely is reminiscent of a walk in the forest and I love it in all of my cold, cough and immune blends.

Another of my favorites. This is a wonderful Balsam Fir. Deeply coniferous with lemon and pine notes. This oil is very grounding and emotionally stabilizing; great for meditation blends. Also good for respiratory problems and as an antiseptic.

I adore fir balsam, and make two incenses with it. I find it a very grounding oil used therapeutically, and the thinner consistency than the resin is handy.

Another one of my favorite oils. Makes me think of a walk in the forest. Great in a difuser as natural air freshener and also in melt-and-pour or hot process soaps.
