If you’re always pining for some mountain time but can’t pack up and leave whenever you want, Idaho Grand Fir essential oil is the perfect oil to help you stay connected to your roots! Sourced from the Young Living Highland Flats Tree Farm in Naples, Idaho, this oil offers a woodsy, refreshing aroma reminiscent of a freshly cut Christmas tree.

Why so woodsy? The tree that Idaho Grand Fir comes from, the Abies grandis, is commonly used during winter festivities! Elements of this tree were also used year round by Native American cultures to promote well-being and the sensation of deeper breathing. Get your forest fix today by using Idaho Grand Fir oil in one of these five fantastic ways!

Inhale, exhale

While you can’t carry around a whole forest with you, you can enjoy crisp, qualitree mountain air by adding 2 drops R.C.™ essential oil blend and 1 drop Idaho Grand Fir essential oil to a bit of coconut oil. Rub this unbe-leaf-able arboreal blend into your chest and inhale. Feel the coolness and luxuriate in the sensation of deeper breathing!
