In the Slavic mythology, the fir tree is a protector against evil and has always been associated with different winter customs. It is therefore not surprising that it has become a popular choice for Christmas tree, although this kind of use is in our country relatively young.

Our silver fir essential oils are distinguished from other silver fir essential oils by a clean scent resulting from consistency in picking tops. In conventional production distillations, large ends of silver fir branches are usually collected. Whole branches are then crushed into 3-4cm pieces with the help of mechanical branch shredders. In doing so, they get a fairly compact mass, which, in addition to needles, also contains a lot of crushed silver fir wood. Thicker branches are not eliminated due to the desire for the most efficient procedure. Thus, distillers save a lot of time, but the mass they then distill is of much lower quality. Such an essential oil usually has a very woody and rough note of scent.

We pick only the flexible green ends of the twigs by hand, we remove all the thicker branches. The tops are then cut into 4-5 cm pieces by hand. The distillation mass thus obtained has very few wood particles, needles and green twig ends predominate. The essential oil that results from this therefore has no rough woody odor.

The essential oil is found mainly in the needles, some also in young cones. Twigs yield some 0.7 – 1.0% of pale yellow oil. Since it oxidizes quickly, it is recommended to keep it well closed in a cool place.

Due to its diverse use, fir essential oil is also known as a ‘forest healer’. The smell of fir trees is unmistakably associated with the Christmas spirit. It is soothing and at the same time refreshing. A space scented with fir essential oil offers a pleasant feeling of freshness and is reminiscent of a walk in the forest. The space is disinfected and refreshed, which is especially important in the period of seasonal infections.
