“Fir oil is said to encourage protection and clarity of mind and spirit. It allows us to achieve strength and inner unity.” (Worwood V. The fragrant heavens. Transworld Publishing, Great Britain, 1999)

Abies siberica is a coniferous evergreen tree growing to about 100 ft in height. It produces needles that are highly aromatic. The shape of needles, versus leaves, are natures survival instinct – the needles allow less water evaporation than a leaf which has more surface area. The Fir Needle Siberian is a hardy tree that is tolerant of limited sunshine, frosts, and snows, surviving temperatures down to −58 F. The Siberian Fir tree can live up to 200 years. The oil is extracted from the needles and small twigs and is then collected, and steam distilled. The oil is colorless to pale yellow. It has a rich, sweet-balsamic, fruity pine scent. 

Fir Needle Siberian is the most popular fir needle oil in Europe.

FACTS:  Ancient Egyptians used Fir needle oil to prepare a hair growth formula that would elevate and energize the root of the hair when massaged onto the scalp. Generally, all parts of the tree have been used throughout history, across all continents of the world. The Fir Needle Siberian is the perfect Christmas Tree.

AUROMA Essential Oils are the highest quality essential oils available in the world today. Each oil is from an individual farmer and from a particular year’s harvest. As AUROMA knows each of the Farmers, they guarantee the authenticity of each oil. Just to be certain, they analyze each oil using the latest state-of-the-art GC-MS technology, which can detect impurities to one part per billion. Yes! AUROMA represents the best there is in Essential Oils. We can supply the following documentation: Certificates of Analysis and Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:

  1. BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
  2. CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
  5. WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.
  6. EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of expensive oils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
  7. ANALYYSIS: Oils are tested by AUROMA in Australia with the most advanced state-of- the-art equipment in the world.


    • Just to smell: You can enjoy the aromatherapy of your favorite Essential oil or Blend without even taking it out of the bottle. Keep a bottle in your purse or your car. Simply open-up and smell. This can be particularly helpful during times of stress.
    • As a natural Perfume: Dab a couple drops of your most aromatic Essential Oils or Blend onto your wrists, in the same way you might use perfume. Do a patch test first before putting any Essential Oil Blend directly on your skin. Fir Needle Essential Oil is used in perfumery for its masculine type of fragrance. See “Cautions.”

Fir Needle Siberian is non-toxic. It is a strong to moderate skin irritant, which does not cause skin sensitization. It has not been tested for phototoxicity. (Tisserand R, Bolacs T, Essential oil safety. Churchill Livingston, UK)

The Aromatherapy Place does not recommend ingesting essential oils unless a specific dosage instruction is given to a consumer by a qualified medical practitioner.

Do not apply directly to skin. May case skin irritation in some individuals.  Always dilute with a carrier oil. A skin test is recommended prior to use on the skin.

Please check with a professional for safe essential oils to use with children or the elderly. Do not use essential oils on a child younger than two years without professional advice.


We recommended that Essential Oils or 100% pure and natural Blends be stored in amber or cobalt blue glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life. Keep away from excessive heat and light. A bathroom, bedroom or kitchen cabinet should be a good storage location.
