Rating: At first sniff, I didn't quite know what to make of it...It smelled like 1,000 fir trees at once! However, once I got used to it, I began to love it and used it in various applications: in a diffuser with 1 drop Fir Needle, 1 drop Eucalyptus, 1 drop Tea Tree Oil, 1 drop Peppermint (good for warding off colds) or as a foot crème with aloe vera gel & peppermint. It will make everything smell like a forest! :-)
Rating: Wow! Very potent EO. Love this Siberian Fir Needle. I like to try different oils from different regions. I have a Canadian Fir EO that is sweeter but this EO is more volatile, lighter ends. A little goes a long way in blending this oil. Thank you NDA for allowing me to experiment with oils from around the globe and at such reasonable prices!

Rating: This is a pretty, although strong, piney smell. It is a little sharper than the Fir Balsam, which I prefer. Value on this is tremendous.

Rating: Ah the fresh smell of Fir Needle. Reminds me of bringing a freshly cut Christmas tree in, or collecting pine cones on a dense evergreen trail. I will be experimenting with adding a drop or two of this to classic musk, apply and vanilla to make my own manly scent. Totally fresh. I love it.
Rating: I love this Fir oil, I have cancer, and fir is a great cancer cell killer, according to recent lab reports I've read on it's use in mice. I rub a very small amount of this on my tumors with a little carrier oil. Also, its very uplifting to diffuse on it's own, but I also combine orange with it sometimes. We also use it to deodorize our babies cloth diapers. love it :)

Rating: I was looking for a pine smell that wouldn't remind me of floor cleaner. I feared the worst but ordered anyway. Right out of the bottle this Fir Needle EO has a gentle forest scent. Mix it with another woodsy oil, perhaps a citrus and herbs and you'll be amazed by how versatile it can be. I'm anticipating that this will be a hit with my customers. I am so pleased to have found this!

Rating: My first time ordering this EO and I was very pleased that its all the name says. Reminiscing of a walk through a forest of pine trees !! Am using it for my Christmas soaps and so far it has not disappointed me.
Rating: smells great! Blends wonderfully with other woodsy scents. A must for christmas blends!

Rating: I am a big fan of evergreen scents and this one doesn't disappoint. Maybe a bit more exotic I'd say.

Rating: Like most essential oils I have tried, this smells like body odour at first. But as I smell it, I can smell the pine. It smells similar to Pine Scotch, but it smells much more sweet, fresh, and delicious. It smells similar to Pine Long Leaf too, but the pine long leaf smells more clean, green and delightful. This is my second favourite pine scent.

Rating: I really dislike the smell of this oil. It smells like BO at first and then it smells like a hint of fir but it's nauseating to my olfactory senses. Maybe it's just too strong for my liking. It definitely does not smell like Christmas. I'm very happy with the other oils I've bought but just not this one and I have nothing else to compare to.

Rating: The words can hardly explain how manly and uplifting or rather balanced this oil makes me feel. It's just so good and tasty that makes me almost want to eat it. Or it's just like a nice walk in the forest . I think it has to be stored in the freezer as it's vulnerable to oxidation.

Rating: I ordered this to diffuse during the holiday season and I'm glad I did.
It makes my home smell like fir forest!

Rating: I made a review 4 years ago. Now, 4 years later, I can say that this e.o. is still of first quality. The smell is like the one of a Christmas tree ! I would miss if it would no more be available. It sanitizes the air. Very precious and the price is "sane" too !
Cette huile sent comme un arbre de Noêl. Je l'ai utilisé pour rafraîchir l'air de la maison, dans mes savons, en mélange avec d'autres conifères. Le prix est assez formidable aussi.

Rating: It is my favorite EO for Christmas season. Mix few drops of Fir needle, Spruce, Pine and Lemon or Lime in your diffuser and you just don't know when to stop....maybe in the springtime. Also the price is very good.

Rating: Fantastic! I look forward to creating exquisite, energizing incenses with this oil.
By:Tracey, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Jan-2007
Rating: Is a great oil for blending a woodsy scent for the diffuser. Blend with Cedarwood and Juniper and lemon. Smells great.
By:Vanice, Cambridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Dec-2006
Rating: Nice scent without being overpowering. Good price too.
By:Yvonne, Brampton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Feb-2006
Rating: I cannot be without this essential oil. I even use it in my soaps. It is supposed to be irritating for the skin but I make a high percentage shea butter soap with ucuuba butter and there is no problem for the skin then ! This oil's smell makes you feel relaxed and awakened. It is calming and makes you feel renewed.
This essential oil's scent is truly "fir needle", nothing else.
