I grew up in the woods of Northern Michigan, and took the abundance of cedar and balsam for granted! I have so many fond memories of playing in those wild woods of my childhood, and also of seeking comfort and calm from the trees. I visited this same forest in June of 2017, and respectfully harvested some fresh aromatic sprigs from the cedar and balsam trees.
Fresh plant oil infusions typically have a more subtle aroma than the distilled essential oils of a plant. This one came out with the sweet aroma of a forest floor covered with sun-warmed pine needles. I added just a hint of a respectfully distilled balsam fir essential oil to complement.
This roll-on oil would make a lovely addition to a gentle bedtime routine. It’s also grounding, clearing, and uplifting to the spirit.
