“The pine tree seems to listen, the fir tree seems to wait, and neither with impatience: they give no thought to the little people below them whose impatience and curiosity eat them up alive.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche, The Wanderer and his Shadow
“The silver fir needle is used in Europe for its plant properties and its fragrant scent. The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation from the needles and young twigs, fir cones, and broken-up pieces. Silver fir needle is used as… a fragrance component in deodorants, room sprays, disinfectants, bath preparations, soaps, and perfumes.”
~ Ruth Winter, A Consumer’s Dictionary of Cosmetic Ingredients, 7th Edition
“The scent is used to create a feeling of harmony and goodwill. It combines the sensation of being grounded and elevated at the same time, and it increases intuition and releases energy and emotional blocks.”
