Harvested from the picturesque boreal forests of North America, Spruce Black is an abundant coniferous tree that produces an essential oil loaded with therapeutic properties. Historically, Spruce Black has been used in ointments, salves, and lotions to help soothe muscular discomfort and to ease tight breathing associated with seasonal concerns and pollen threats. With its fresh and uplifting aroma, it also helps lift away feelings of the winter doldrums by fighting off fatigue and energizing the senses.
