Journey northward to a cold Canadian forest to get to know Black Spruce, a grounding and sweet member of the pine family. Long before the land was known as Canada, Native Americans used the natural gifts of the black spruce tree for its skin cleansing properties, among other things. This powerful essential oil is actually the steam-distilled product of needles and branches that are byproducts of the logging industry. Woodland caribou, which eat black spruce, should be especially grateful for this method of sourcing, as it takes many pounds of black spruce plant material to make just one bottle of Black Spruce oil! As always, environmental stewardship and resourcefulness characterize the way dōTERRA® does business, both around the world and in these beautiful Canadian forestlands.
