Dried Pacific Northwest Doug Fir
The volatile oils found in fir needles, bark, sap and resin are used to help stimulate the respiratory system, decongest the lungs, boost the immune system, balance hormones, and bring circulation and warmth to cold muscles and stiff joints.
They are high in vitamin B, C, A, and iron and a slew of minerals, antioxidants and flavonoids, and according to various studies they contain anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular-protecting, triglyceride-reducing properties as well.
The needles can be use to make tinctures, oils, salves, soaps & balms for healing the skin or lips.
They are also delicious in a wide variety of foods and easily incorporated. You can toss chopped needles into vinegars, finishing salts and even blend them directly into sugars and other items.
These needles are naturally dropped and dried over time and never taken from the trees.
