Our Douglas Fir Oil is harvested from evergreen fir trees in New Zealand, Douglas Fir has a unique blend of chemical compounds giving a fresh, fragrant woodsy aroma with top notes of citrus. The supplier is committed to responsibly sourced, sustainable, and consistently high-quality essential oil. No pesticides or synthetic fertilisers have been used on the land for 25+ years and are seeking organic certification.
Their essential oil is produced on-site and are moving towards a closed-loop process – by using biomass boilers, ensuring that the same forests producing the essential oil will also power 100% of the steam used for distillation - “By valuing our forests and the communities that rely on them, we cultivate a healthy world”.
