European Silver Fir Abies Alba It promotes courage and confidence in hard times.
The European silver fir is grown especially for its wood. It’s a relatively small tree with a silver-white bark.
With its white bark and its sweet and spicy scent, it evokes the enchanted world of Northern Europe fairy tales.
The essential oil is extracted at Santa Bianca by steam-distilling the dry seeds we purchase from the State Forestry Division of the Appennine Mountains between Tuscany and Emilia.
It has a balsam, sweet, slightly fruity aroma.

The main property of the European silver fir is to alleviate lung problems.
It also greatly stimulates blood circulation and is very helpful in case of arthritis, arthrosis, and muscle aches.
Thanks to its purifying effect, it’s especially recommended in rooms with stale and smoky air.
Home diffuser: add 3-6 drops to 100 ml of water
Steam inhalation: emulsify 3-4 drops of essential oil with coarse salt in 1 l of hot water. Inhale for 20 minutes, keeping your eyes and mouth closed
Bathtub: emulsify 8-10 drops of essential oil with coarse salt — or alternatively milk, cream, or honey — to add to the hot water (so that the oil doesn’t evaporate due to the heat)
Massages: we recommend to dilute 2-3 drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil
Shampoo: we recommend to add 10 drops to 200 ml of PH-neutral shampoo
Caution: do not use in case of chronic diseases, pregnancy, or when breastfeeding.
