Do not confuse this Black Spruce (picea mariana) with Spruce (hemlock) Tsuga canadensis. To me the Tsuga canadensis is the one that I identify with when walking in the woods of upstate NY.

The Black Spruce has a more earthy scent .. more grounding.

Jeffrey Yuen recommends this for arthritis, muscle aches and pains and aching joints. Those of you that study with him have been asking for this essential oil and so, finally, we are able to offer it to you.

Contraindications: Non toxic, non irritant, possible sensitization in some individuals.
