Douglas Fir Oil

$ 20.00

Douglas Fir oil is a vibrant, uplifting oil distilled from fresh branch tips early in the spring. A very citrusy-smelling evergreen oil with a short window of harvest, low-yield, and limited availability. Labor intensive. Get this seasonal offering while you can. This is a specialty oil, and like fine wine, the fragrance will change form season to season, year to year, and harvest to harvest. Our Douglas Fir Oil (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is 20% essential oil in a fractionated coconut oil base packaged in a 5 ml violet glass bottle to extend shelf life.

Uses

Traditionally applied for sore muscles, adrenal support, as a decongestant, study/focus oil, memory-lifter, and general cheer-bringer. The “Christmas Tree” oil. Wonderful for when you want to be in the forest but just can’t make it there. Invigorating malaise-buster.*

Blends seamlessly with all of the citrus oils for vibrant top-note effects. Great for “sharpening” a flat blend. Crisp and clean, it is generally embraced by all forest lovers. Gorgeous in forest accords.

Ring Botanicals Essential Oils

All of our artisan essential oils are steam distilled from plants that are grown and harvested from the wild the Western United States. At Ring Family Farm we do not spray our crops with pesticides, and great care is taken with every step of the process. From the baby plants we start from seed, to the plowing of the fields and planting, to the labor of hand weeding, and through to the careful harvest and distillation we are invested with love and care every step of the way. All of our oils are packaged in violet glass to extend shelf-life. We periodically may rely on trusted local artisan distillers for back-up supplies of Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata), "ARP" Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis). "Buena Viata" Lavender, and "Grosso" Lavandin essential oils. Our lavender oils are sold in 100% pure form, while our other lower-yield oils are offered at 20% in fractionated coconut oil (f.c. oil blends with all other carriers and will also dissolve in alcohol for use in perfumes.)

The Farm

Ring Family Farm is an island safe-haven for native plants and animals displaced by surrounding clear cuts. We are good stewards to our land, fulfilling a promise to protect the natural world we are lucky enough to grow upon.
Nestled in the foothills of the Molalla Mountains, our land supports a wide array of aromatic plants: from rosemary, sages, roses, lemon balm, mints, to many types of lavender and evergreen trees. These fragrant beauties are used in our essential oil distillations and our natural perfume blends. We practice sustainable, organic farming and all of our plants are propagated, planted, maintained and harvested by the Ring family with love.
