This particular essential oil has been co-created from trees that were harvested to bring into the home for 2015 Solstice and Christmas celebrations. From the writing of the federal documents that created the permit for families to go into the mountains to cut their own Holiday Tree, to being lovingly transformed into an essential oil to appear for you as the “Genie in theBottle”, this oil has a close connection to that which is human.
This tree grows at high elevations in many environmental demographics. and is sometimes called alpine fir, balsam fir, white fir, mountain balsam fir, white balsam, western balsam fir, Rocky Mountain fir.

House of Aromatic’s Essential Oils are created by feeding steam through a “charge” of enclosed organic matter. The aromatic vapor flash cools, condensing to liquid form which contains the pure plant chemistry known as essential oil. All distillate material is hand processed to assure the most stable chemistry along with the vibrational frequencies of the plants themselves.
Our Essential Oils contain No Carrier Oils, No Alcohol, and guaranteed NO Synthetics
