Description: Black Spruce is a naturally growing tree in Canada. It is typically found in wet, swampy areas where the wild growing trees can grow up to 15 meters in height.
Color: Colorless to pale yellow liquid.
Common Uses: Spruce Black Essential Oil has a very pleasant scent, and can be used by aromatherapists to provide a sense of relaxation to the clients by using the oil in a warm bath. Consumers will also see Spruce Black oil frequently used in room sprays and detergents.
Aromatic Scent: Spruce Black Essential Oil is one of Canada's best kept secrets. It is sweeter, and softer than most evergreen oils with a balsamic, resinous odor with green woody notes. Overall, the scent is very clean, fresh and pleasant.
History: Black Spruce Essential Oil has a long history of use in saunas, steam baths, and as an additive to baths and massage products in spas because it energizes the senses through its fresh and pleasant aroma.
Cautions: Black Spruce Essential Oil should be applied to the skin only in dilution as it has the potential to be a possible skin irritant. Avoid use during pregnancy.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Rating: one of my top 5 of all time! Powerful, wonderful scent - a must have!
By:Scott-Kimberly, Hamilton, Indiana Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Sep-2014
Rating: This has been a surprise EO for me. I love the aroma. I am now using it in my body wash, shampoo, inhalers, diffuser, blends. I can definitely breathe much better with this particular Oil. It opens my sinuses and my lungs. I do not do good during pollen season. I am ordering a larger bottle as this is one of my Favorite Oils. It also has wonder anti-inflammatory properties that this 58 year old body needs help with. I wish I had discovered New Directions earlier in my quest to become a Certified Aromatherapist. They are definitely at the top of my list as a wonderful company that will serve me and future clients time and again. On the light side, my 23 year old son used my body wash, and went to work. He came home with a smile on his face. He snagged a date with a girl he has been wanting to get to know for awhile. He told me that she told him he smelled fantastic! Score one for New Directions and one for Mom!
Rating: I don't know if it is something particular with my nose, but I didn't pick up any of the fresh or sweet notes that others have. In fact, next to Cedar or Juniper, the Black Spruce smells almost fetid, like something turned bad. I'm not trying to find fault, because I had high hopes for this oil, in my attempts to find a pleasing, well-balanced woodsy blend. Maybe it works better combined with other oils, but OOB it was a turn off. JMHO.

Rating: I love this scent. It is a nice, gentle Christmas in a bottle scent, but without the strong pine odour that is too harsh to me. I will never go back to pine Christmas scents again!

Rating: This smells just like the forests of southern Manitoba--it's wonderful. So foresty and fresh, it makes me want to run off into the forest and climb a tree.

Rating: This oil is fantastic! Defused in the home it energizes and grounds you at the same time. If you close your eyes, it's as though you are resting in a pine forest on a soft cushion of moss. It's one of my husbands favorites.
Thanks New Direction

Rating: Holy north woods! an honest, masculine woodcutter smell that begs to go into men's fragrances and toiletries. It is energizing and assertive, yet laid-back. This rejuvenating and vigorous oil is a must-have. Thanks for carrying wild black spruce.

Rating: Although we use several NDA oils in our weekly saunas, this Black Wild Spruce is the show stopper. Especially for anyone who has spend a lot of time in evergreen forests. We are transported! And yet very grounding. The strength and serenity of a long spring hike in coniferous mountains - all in a few drops on the sauna rocks. A world of difference from most pine scents.
Rating: I just love this spruce eo! The fragrance is divine! It smells natural, and just like walking and breathing in the aromas of redwoods in a morning.

Rating: I original purchased this for my boy friend, I'm glad I did. It smells so good, just like walking through the forest. Its my man's favorite smell, he wants me to put it in everything. I made him a perfume using this in it, he now uses-it everyday.

Rating: I use this ES in CP bar soap and shaving soap along with lesser amounts of your coriander, ginger, patchouli and benzion. It just an awesome manly scent. I have bought this twice now and will continue to purchase it from NDA. Its become a favourite with my customers.
By:Deborah, Port Hardy, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Fresh, strong, piney scent, without the harshness of pine. I like it for general air-freshening or cleaning blends.
By:Judith, Reisterstown, Maryland Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Mar-2006
Rating: Amazing scent - sweet, crisp, and fresh! I think this oil would even win over folks that don't care for conifer type scents. This is truly an exceptional essential oil.
By:Karen, Spring Hill, Florida Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Dec-2007
Rating: I love it! It smells like fir needles, which is one of my favorite eos to have around in the winter.
