Spruce Black brings with it the fresh, coniferous aroma of the woods of North America. It’s reminiscent of a fresh Christmas tree, a walk in the woods and it perfectly encapsulates everything we love about conifer oils. Now let’s dive into all the good stuff this oil has to offer.

Breath of Fresh Air

Like so many other coniferous oils, Spruce Black is incredible for helping clear up breathing. It’s perfect for use in the winter when seasonal illnesses strike or whenever allergies are still bothering you. In addition to using it in your diffuser to help with tight breathing, try using 1-2 drops in a facial steam. You can read all about the process and the benefits in our post The Art of the Steam.

 

Soothes Sore Muscles

Another common and popular use for Spruce Black is in balms and salves. It’s incredibly beneficial at helping ease sore and painful muscles. Next time you have tight, overexerted muscles that need some relief, mix four drops with three drops each of Chamomile Roman and Cedarwood, and two drops of Copaiba Oleoresin in one ounce of your favorite Plant Therapy carrier oil. Massage onto those sore muscles or use this blend for an overall very relaxing massage.

Boost for the Immune System

In addition to helping ease some of the symptoms of those pesky winter colds, Spruce Black is also useful for helping you not get sick in the first place or at the very least, helping you recover quicker. Take advantage of its immune-boosting benefits next time those illnesses go around. Whip up our Stay Healthy Roll-On to have on hand so you can, well, stay healthy.

 

So Long Winter Doldrums

Winter can be a magical time. Holiday decorations are everywhere, families gather for special occasions, and snow makes its glorious debut. However, winter can also bring along its own kind of doldrums. Whether you’re feeling lonely, the gray skies are actually that gloomy, or staying indoors has you down, Spruce Black can help lift the gloom and improve your spirits. You’ll be left feeling energized and uplifted.
