Douglas-fir: needles (and some stems for an extra resinous flavor) are delicious and nutritious, are anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, immune stimulating, and high in iron, antioxidants, flavonoids, and vitamins C, B and A. Douglas-fir is not a true fir, nor is it a pine or spruce, but is most closely related to hemlock.

Grand fir & Balsam fir: the needles have four times more vitamin C than an orange, and the oils found in their bark, sap, resin and needles are immune-boosting, promote circulation to cold, stiff bones and muscles, balance hormones, decongest the lungs, and are supportive to the respiratory system in general. The aroma of fir needles bring about confidence and courage while also relieving anxiousness and stress. Fir and other conifers were revered and celebrated during Yule festivities, as they embody the goddess that never dies, or the Tree of Life. During the winter solstice, these trees of life were ornamented with candles to symbolize everlasting light of the stars, moon and sun.

*Juniper berry: is warming and soothing to arthritic joints and a remedy for rheumatism. This berry is highly antiseptic with an affinity for the urinary tract, is anti-microbial, helps to relieve fluid retention, is soothing to the stomach and aids in digestion, and its aromatic attributes evoke health, love and peace. Contraindication: not for use in pregnancy!

*Cedar leaf: is a very strong antimicrobial and stimulant of the immune system, thus allowing us to better fight off bacteria, viruses, molds, fungal infections, and cancers. Contraindication: cedar is considered a very strong medicine, containing high levels of volatile oils that are best not taken internally in large doses. Cedar can also stimulate contractions of the uterus so it is not recommended for anyone who is pregnant or could be pregnant. This blend does not contain enough cedar to be a serious health risk, however one should always consult a doctor before ingesting any food/herb that is of any question.

Sunflower: is high in vitamins A, D and E, as well as oleic acids, making it deeply nourishing and healing to damaged, dry, weathered and aged skin. 

Beeswax: from local Pacific Northwest bees is pure, filtered and moisturizing for all skin types, including those with skin sensitivities.

Vitamin E: this oil is vacuum distilled from non-GMO vegetable fats. It's high concentration of antioxidants makes it great for repairing the skin, as well as to maximize any oil-based products' freshness in which it is added.
