It’s crazy to think that we’re experiencing another change of season and the pandemic is still going on. For many of us, this time has forced us to press pause.

But what can seem like a time of blockage, stuckness, and stagnation can transform into reflection, insight, and clarity.

It’s all in how you approach the moment.

One of the wonderful blessings of aromas is that they bring us into the present moment and gently encourage us to take a deeper breath.

With some oils, they may also aid in our respiratory processes making them a super bonus for the lungs.

You might have already guessed it but, super bonus for your lungs = super bonus for your life!

A beautiful coincidence (or symbology, depending on how you look at it) is that the conifer, woody oils like Pine, Spruce, and Fir are all considered expectorants. 🌲🌲🌲 

This means they can help clear the lungs making it easier to breathe. It’s also why you’ll find them often in blends for coughs and colds.

Trees are analogous to our lungs, only they take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. They are like our breathing buddies. When turned upside down, the branches of our lungs look like trees.

So in a time that we could all use a moment to take a deep breath, I invite you to join me in turning to Spruce essential oil for this aromatic meditation.


I’d love to hear what you find as you take a sacred pause to breathe deep and reflect on how the coniferous aroma of Spruce refreshes your mind and grounds you in the here and now.
