Black spruce essential oil comes from black spruce, a medium sized evergreen tree, and a member of the spruce family. While it can be found throughout North America, it grows mainly in Canada in the forests known as taiga. Native Americans used black spruce for a number of medicinal purposes, including reducing inflammation, treating skin problems, and healing wounds. Today, black spruce essential oil is commonly added to cosmetic and household products thanks to its pleasant aroma. In aromatherapy, black spruce essential oil is useful for relieving stress and anxiety, reducing muscle aches, and improving breathing problems.
