Main Constituents:
L'Bornyl Acetate : 17.76%

Botanical Name: Picea mariana

Plant Part: Needles and Twigs

Extraction Method: Steam Distilled

Origin: Canada

Description: Black Spruce is a naturally growing tree in Canada. It is typically found in wet, swampy areas where the wild growing trees can grow up to 15 meters in height.

Color: Colorless to pale yellow liquid.

Common Uses: Spruce Black Essential Oil has a very pleasant scent, and can be used by aromatherapists to provide a sense of relaxation to the clients by using the oil in a warm bath. Consumers will also see Spruce Black oil frequently used in room sprays and detergents.

Consistency: Thin

Note: Top

Strength of Aroma: Medium

Blends well with: Pine, Cedarwood, Galbanum, Benzoin, Lavender and Rosemary.

Aromatic Scent: Spruce Black Essential Oil is one of Canada's best kept secrets. It is sweeter, and softer than most evergreen oils with a balsamic, resinous odor with green woody notes. Overall, the scent is very clean, fresh and pleasant.

History: Black Spruce Essential Oil has a long history of use in saunas, steam baths, and as an additive to baths and massage products in spas because it energizes the senses through its fresh and pleasant aroma.

Cautions: Black Spruce Essential Oil should be applied to the skin only in dilution as it has the potential to be a possible skin irritant. Avoid use during pregnancy.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

A heavenly scent. Reminds me of walking in the forests around my home. Mix this with the Virginian cedar and you are in forest heaven. Can't get enough of it and will definitely get a bigger bottle.

Ordered this EO along with spruce white and spruce hemlock. I much prefer (as well as my family) the black wild over the other two.

It is good news the price dropped greatly though it happened after I purchased this essential oil. I made a pillow spray in combination of Lavender essential oil and it makes me sleep really good. I tried Spruce White too and I like both while Black is sharper wooden aroma.

I'm hooked on diffusing this oil and blending it with South African Lavender - both have a camphorific kick.

The delicious smell of the great outdoors! This one makes me feel great! Blend it with a nice floral scent like lavender, geranium, or rose absolute. It's like having a garden after the rain in your own living room. Just divine!

Black Spruce is recommended for helping adrenal fatigue (along with pine and rosemary). I tried the Black Wild and the White; the white has a more complex aroma , but I actually prefer the black spruce.

Maybe it is because I am a boy from BC and love to crush the fresh needles of spruce in my hands and inhale the resiny green aroma. The freedom of the outdoors. More appealing than spruce hemlock and spruce white in my opinion.

I purchased Spruce Black Wild, Spruce Hemlock, and Spruce White. Out of all three, this one smells the weakest. It is not as complex and not as fresh as the other two. It is more mellow and gentle, but still not my ideal spruce scent. It smells good, but I personally prefer Hemlock and White.

I am anxiously waiting for this to come back in stock. Has to be one of my favorite oils. Adds a depth and freshness to whatever I blend it with.

Wild Black Spruce smells exactly as amazing as the description and all the reviews. It is fairly mild scented so I think using it for aromatherapy over CP soaping would be preferred. It is very soothing, calming, fresh and spicy all at the same time. I use to always combine lavender barreme and pepper green as my favorite scent but now its wild black spruce for me. A few drops in a hot bath will relax any tension and take away the days stress.

I love this scent. It is a nice, gentle Christmas in a bottle scent, but without the strong pine odour that is too harsh to me. I will never go back to pine Christmas scents again!

This smells just like the forests of southern Manitoba--it's wonderful. So foresty and fresh, it makes me want to run off into the forest and climb a tree.

I original purchased this for my boy friend, I'm glad I did. It smells so good, just like walking through the forest. Its my man's favorite smell, he wants me to put it in everything. I made him a perfume using this in it, he now uses-it everyday.

A great essential oil and extremely useful for rebuilding the adrenal glands to get renewed energy and feel like a new person. Also very helpful in treating bronchitis and getting our strength back again, an oil that you will use over and over.
