The aroma of Douglas Fir is a familiar one, as these trees are often used in the Christmas tree industry and around the holidays. Douglas Fir essential oil is also beneficial for the skin, helps promote an uplifting and positive environment, brings an invigorating aroma, and makes for a relaxing massage experience, plus more. I will start off with the emotional benefits of Douglas Fir, then you will learn about it's sustainable sourcing, benefits, how to use it, and finally a recipe for this Festive Holiday Room Spray*.
Each essential oil has a personality due to its chemical make-up and other unique properties. Douglas fir is known as the ‘Oil of Generational Wisdom’. This oil addresses generational issues by inviting individuals to break free from unhealthy dynamics passed down through their families. In the end, most want to live their lives according to their own personal values and conscience, and by letting go of dysfunctional patterns, each generation can be a gift of new life, new growth, and new beginnings! Douglas fir also encourages us to be open to learn from the wisdom of our families and ancestors. Try applying topically to the base of spine or bottom of the feet daily for a week and see how it works for you.
Did you know that Douglas Fir trees grow twenty times faster in New Zealand, than in the USA? Douglas Fir trees are an invasive species of New Zealand that threatens the environment. This challenge provides an opportunity for doTERRA to sustainably and responsibly source Douglas Fir oil from young evergreen trees. How awesome is that? By using these trees for essential oil production, doTERRA helps reduce the environmental impact of this invasive species that is taking over the land in New Zealand. When we purchase our family’s essential oils from doTERRA, we know we can be confident that our essential oil has been responsibly sourced, thoroughly tested, and carefully created. As this is not the case with many other oils, it’s what sets doTERRA apart from the rest.
The cleaning and purifying properties of Douglas Fir oil not only make it beneficial for washing your face in the mornings, but also for wiping down counters and surfaces. To enjoy the benefits of Douglas Fir oil for your skin, add a few drops of the oil to your facial/body wash or moisturizer, and enjoy the purifying and cleansing properties this oil has to offer. Bring an invigorating aroma to your daily hygiene routine by adding a few drops of Douglas Fir essential oil to your favorite cleansers and soaps.
Sourced from evergreen fir trees, Douglas Fir oil possesses a unique chemical composition that gives it a purifying, uplifting, refreshing aroma. The Douglas Fir is often used in the Christmas tree industry because of its fresh, woody aroma reminiscent of the outdoors. Douglas Fir oil’s aroma is a combination of citrus and wood notes, and can help promote an uplifting and positive environment. When you want to create a positive mood at home, at the office, or in a child’s bedroom, diffuse a few drops of Douglas Fir essential oil. Because of its unique chemistry, Douglas Fir oil blends well with citrus, wood, and spice essential oils. Along with creating a positive mood, diffusing Douglas Fir oil will also freshen and purify the air— a double win!
Looking for a cooling and relaxing massage? Combine Douglas Fir with 1-2 drops of Wintergreen essential oil. I recommend doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil because it is safe and high quality and makes a great carrier oil for massages. But, feel free to use your own favorite, as well. Diluting oils with carrier oils can help you avoid skin sensitivity, particularly when using oils that are especially potent, like Wintergreen.
Here is an invigorating diffuser blend that will uplift your mood and help you focus... Combine Douglas Fir, Wild Orange, and Lemon or Bergamot oil in your diffuser.

Through the end of November, get Douglas Fir 15% off.
Finally, take full advantage of the festive aroma around the holidays, by creating your own holiday room spray, and invite the smells of the season into your home. Simply combine 15 drops of Frankincense, 15 drops of Grapefruit, and 30 drops of Douglas Fir into a glass spray bottle. Top with water, then shake and spray!
