From Christmas trees to telephone poles to a refreshing essential oil, Douglas Fir has a wide variety of uses and benefits. This bristly conifer tree is filled with revitalizing compounds that can purify the skin and help maintain a sense of focus. When used aromatically or topically, its fresh green aroma reflects the tranquility of its native New Zealand forests, creating calm feelings and encouraging an uplifted mood. The unique chemical composition of Douglas Fir essential oil can also promote feelings of open airways and easy breathing.

Douglas Fir is one of those oils that you will want to keep on hand because it increases focus, uplifts mood, promotes feelings of clear airways and easy breathing, and freshens the air.

Diffuse this blend to relax, enhance focus, and clear the senses:
  • 4 drops dōTERRA Balance®

Douglas Fir can be utilized both Aromatically and Topically:

Aromatic:

  • Directly inhale or diffuse alone or with other essential oils to freshen the air, uplift mood, and promote a sense of focus.
  • Diffuse 2–3 drops Douglas Fir with 2–3 drops Eucalyptus, or rub into hands and inhale deeply to promote feelings of clear airways and easy breathing.

DIY: Holiday Room Spray

This room spray smells INCREDIBLE. At first there's a top note of Grapefruit, mingled with just a hint of Frankincense. The Douglas Fir lends an apple-yness, and after being in the air for a little while the Grapefruit fades to a faint sparkle to reveal a heartier base note of apple, pine, and a spicy, earthy resin from the Frankincense. You can't help, but be in a good mood when you've got this magic in the air.

 Directions:
  1. Grab your Frankincense, Douglas Fir, and Grapefruit essential oil.
  2. In glass spray bottle add water, 15 drops each of Frankincense and Grapefruit, and 30 drops of Douglas Fir. 
  3. Shake the bottle of spray.
  4. Put on a jolly holiday song and spritz the room to the beat of merriment! (We may have gone gallavanting around the office squirting everyone's cubicles when we discovered this combo!)
Note: Depending on the size of your spray bottle you may wish to use more or less, but make sure to keep the ratio of twice the amount of Douglas Fir to equal parts Frankincense and Grapefruit.
 
Tip: Add fresh cranberries and place in guest room for a festive touch.

I love using Douglas Fir regularly and use it before I put on my deodorant! It really does smell like Christmastime and has such a fresh and invigorating (yet warming) aroma! Is this an oil you think you will add to your arsenal? I can't wait to hear how to plan to use it!
