Idaho Balsam Fir Essential Oil


Details
Idaho Balsam Fir, Abies Balsamea is a North American fir, native to most of eastern, central Canada and the northeastern United States. It is a popular choice for Christmas trees.

It is a small to medium-size evergreen tree and grows to around 14–20 metres (46–66 ft) tall. The narrow conic crown consists of dense, dark-green leaves and the bark on young trees is smooth, grey becoming rough and fissured when old. The leaves are flat and needle-like. The needles become thicker and shorter the higher they are on the tree. The seed cones are erect and dark purple, ripening to brown and disintegrating to release the winged seeds around September.
