Spruce 100% Pure Essential Oil
Like other conifers, spruce is an evergreen tree that is native to the Northern Hemisphere. Its fresh, pleasing aroma originates from its twigs and needles, which are generally shorter and softer than those of the pine. Similarly, its scent has a bit more subtlety, with a sweet note that isn't found in other evergreen fragrances. Used in Native American traditional practices, spruce has long been a source of paper, and is also worked into bath and sauna products.

History of Spruce
A sturdy symbol of natural beauty, the spruce tree exudes harmonious vitality. A common wood in the creation of musical instruments such as guitars, cellos and violins, spruce has a pleasing presence that has also made it useful in traditional practices, where it has been used for a number of benefits. Unlike most coniferous scents, spruce features a slightly balsamic, almost fruity sweetness that works nicely with its more prevalent woody, evergreen notes.
