Fir Needle oil is obtained from the Siberian Fir that grows in North Eastern Europe, Finland and North America. The pleasant aroma is pine forest fresh and balsamic but the yield from needles and twigs is under one percent. Pinene, limonene, bornyl acetate, lauric and decylic aldehydes, camphene, myrcene, phellandrene and the sesquiterpene bisabolene are all natural constituents.
