Spruce (Black) Essential Oil
Black Spruce (Picea mariana) essential oil is a beautiful conifer that has many applications. It contains bornyl acetate (sedative, antispasmodic, analgesic), camphene (mucolytic), and alpha-pinene (anti-inflammatory). We get many compliments in our store when we diffuse black spruce with grapefruit in an ultrasonic diffuser.
