Northern Lights Black Spruce – Oil of the Month

Northern Lights Black Spruce

I reckon you can tell a lot about a person by the way they deal with hardship and challenge. Because those experiences are what build strength and character in us. When you apply that principle to Essential Oils, you begin to realise why Northern Lights Black Spruce is an essential oil with a very unique character…

Northern Lights Black Spruce (Picea mariana) is a member of the pine family. It is grown and distilled at Young Living’s Northern Lights tree farm in British Columbia.

What makes the Northern Lights Black Spruce tree so unique

The Black Spruce has a number of very special characteristics:

  • it’s able to tolerate huge variations in temperature.
  • it thrives in poor soil.
  • in the wild black spruce reproduces mainly from seeds activated by forest-fire.
  • its root systems spread deep and wide, giving it a firm grip on the earth.

The spruce trees Young Living distils – and they distil the whole tree to extract every drop of goodness – are bathed in the energy of the aurora borealis. Interestingly, many cultures believe the Northern Lights create spiritual renewal, clarity and balance.
