Welcome to the woods
Inhaling pine absolute is like wandering in a forest on the French riviera, pines warmed by the summer sun, needles cracking under your shoes. The air smells green and fresh, calming and very uplifting.
Abies balsamea is also known as balsam fir and is a species found in eastern North America, mainly in Quebec and Maine. When the tree is young, its thin gray bark already shows resinous blisters, which will continue to develop while the tree grows and its bark turns into fine brown scales. This abundance of gum has given the tree its ‘balsam’ name, and made it known for its therapeutic virtues, especially for the resin’s ability to relieve respiratory difficulties.
