Conifer Oils from Young Living’s New Highland Flats Tree Farm

0 February 10, 2014 - Archive

This January Young Living’s newest distillery became operational at the Highland Flats Tree Farm, producing Idaho Balsam Fir, Idaho Blue Spruce, Pine, and Evergreen Essence, among other essential oils. The Young Living conifer family of essential oils provides an aroma that invigorates the senses and encourages healthy emotions.

Here’s the inside scoop on these powerful oils:

Idaho Balsam Fir

Soothe fatigued muscles, uplift moods, promote a sense of well-being, and increase spirituality with Young Living’s Idaho Balsam Fir essential oil. Traditionally, Balsam Fir is used to aid tired and sore muscles and may also help ease discomfort following rigorous physical activity.

Idaho Blue Spruce

Idaho Blue Spruce essential oil has been known to relieve tense and stressed muscles. The woodsy aroma of this oil invigorates the senses and helps open and release emotional blocks, bringing a feeling of balance and peaceful security. Idaho Blue Spruce may help relax, soothe, and calm body and mind. It may also be useful to support healthy skin.


Pine essential oil has a refreshing, invigorating aroma. First investigated by Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, Pine is soothing for stressed muscles and joints when used in massage. It shares many of the same properties as Eucalyptus Globulus and the action of both oils is enhanced when they are blended.

Evergreen Essence

Evergreen Essence essential oil blend utilizes recycled Christmas trees to create a product that takes you back to nature by combining the scents of a variety of aromatic pine, cedar, and spruce trees. Crisp and invigorating, it refreshes your senses. This seasonal blend, usually available in the winter, changes slightly from season to season.

    I need one to relax the back of the neck muscles. I get headaches everyday because of stress. I am on antianxiety medicine now but need something to relax that muscle.

    • Cindy Hillman

      Bonnie, I do too. I’m off my antianxiety medicine after 4 years because it wasn’t helping my headaches, so why continuing taking it? I was afraid to quit because I thought my headache would get worse – but it hasn’t. Off two weeks now. 🙂 The oils helps, as well as massage, and my chiropractor (he is a holistic heath chiropractor). Good luck!

      my husband use panaway after 30 years on hydrocodone and all kinds of over the counter, I use peppermint for sinus headaches. both are great for muscle pain too, remember to dilute.

    The conifer oils speak to me. I love each of them. Idaho Blue Spruce is, hands down, my favorite, probably because I helped to plant them in 2012. I feel a strong connection to the oil. I believe it was the missing piece to my fertility challenge and balancing out my thyroid. I used it my entire pregnancy to ground me and bring me closer with my unborn child. Today, my son just turned one and he will choose that oil first to put on or just gnaw on the bottle 🙂 Thank you YL for being the BEST!

      Melissa, how did you use the oil on your thyroid? I’m a massage therapist with a patient who has one that doesn’t function very well. Do you just mix it with a carrier oil and rub it on the neck? I’m seeing her at 3P today so it would really be helpful if you could send me a message soon. Thank you.

    When I massage horses I like to use a combination I like to call “Muscle”. It combines 2 drops each Balsam Fir, Rosemary with 4 drops each Basil, Marjoram and Copaiba. The horses find relief for sore tight muscles. We humans with a sore neck can find relief, too!
