Black Spruce essential oil is steam distilled from the needles and twigs of Canadian Black Spruce trees. Similar to the Eastern Hemlock variety, but a little more 'deep forest' in aroma, whereas the Hemlock has a brighter 'Christmas tree' scent. The aroma is both calming and elevating, excellent for yoga and meditative use, or uplifting the atmosphere of any space.
Black Spruce essential oil is described by Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt in 'Advanced Aromatherapy' as particularly suited to restoring depleted and overworked adrenal glands in this formula: 5% Black Spruce essential oil and 5% Pine essential oil in Hazelnut oil. Apply regularly to the kidney area. This formula can be expanded with the addition of Peppermint oil and Cedarwood oil for a stimulating blend.
Other traditional uses of Spruce Essential Oil are: Topical application for muscular aches and pains, poor circulation and rheumatism. Spruce Oil has also been used to improve breathing conditions of asthma, bronchitis, coughs and general weakness.
The bark of the Spruce tree, which contains essential oil components, is current in the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia as indicated for diarrhea, cystitis, mucous colitis, leucorrhoea, uterine prolapse, pharyngitis, stomatitis and gingivitis.
