“Today I attract respect and gratitude for all that I am.”
Douglas fir is the grandfather of oils and full of wisdom. It is strong and supportive, like a grandfather, looking out for the generations to come.
From the tall, evergreen tree, synonymous to Christmas, Douglas Fir oil offers a fresh, sweet and woodsy aroma and, although not a commonly used oil, holds great value when treating anxiety, breathing issues, skin ailments as well as negative generational patterns.
Douglas Fir encourages us to let go of pain, guilt and sadness from our past and reminds us to respect our elders, and to learn from the wisdom of their past. We carry many wonderful things from our ancestors, but we can unknowingly hold onto negative things too. Douglas Fir can be a great oil to use when you’re feeling stuck or blocked from something you know is from your past. Let it release the negative energy it has on you.
With its clean refreshing scent, Douglas Fir reminds us of good times amongst nature, of holidays and fun-filled camping trips. It is this scent, and the memories it invokes, that creates positivity and optimism to help combat anxiety in a sometimes chaotic world.
Douglas Fir relieves tension, can boost your mood, and lift energy levels. Just like a walk in the woods can promote a new sense of vision and focus, diffusing Douglas Fir can aid in creating a similar stimulating environment without even leaving your home.
Packed with antioxidants, Douglas Fir can be used to purify and cleanse your skin, helping to keep it clear. With its invigorating aroma, it’s perfect when added to cleansers and soaps.
Douglas Fir is quite rich in beta-pinenes, and can help open airways and support the respiratory system in times of need. Rub it into your hands and inhale to clear the airways, or diffuse a few drops with a couple drops of Eucalyptus.
With its antibacterial properties, it makes for a wonderful addition to your cleaning cupboard, especially when you pair it with lemon. Safe, gentle and effective on floors, countertops and other surfaces around the home. Your house will smell amazing too.
It pairs well with citrus oils, spicy oils, like cinnamon and nutmeg, herb oils, such as rosemary or lavender, and other woody oils. Combine Douglas Fir with a citrus oil of your choice in a diffuser to freshen the air around your home, while additionally lifting moods and promoting a sense of focus.
At Christmas time, add 30 drops of Douglas Fir to a spray bottle with 15 drops each of Frankincense and Grapefruit with water for a gorgeous holiday scented room spray that will get everyone in a festive and happy mood.
