Historical and Traditional Uses
In the First People Nations of the Americas, Europe and the Middle East it was very commonly applied for the symptoms of; cough, cold, flu, bronchitis, sinusitis, viral and bacterial infections and to boost white blood cell count. It is considered one of the best oils for the whole breathing system and a very effective decongestant.
Well known for its antibacterial, antiviral properties, a scientific experiment was conducted in Canada. A test group of subjects suffering from the flu were blood tested to measure white blood cell count and viral levels. They were then sent on a walk through a pine forest. At the conclusion of their walk these levels were re-tested. In all subjects, the viral infection had reduced and the white blood cell count had increased. It is our white blood cells that fight an infection.
Applied in a liniment to reduce the symptoms of; muscle pain, inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis and gout. Fir Needle improves circulation to aid the healing process. It was considered a tonic for nervous system, kidneys and lungs, always used as part of any convalescence or after an illness where the person is left weak. In China and Europe it was used in cases of kidney and bladder infections, such as cystitis.
Fir Needle supports us to feel self confident, patient and courageous, to feel free in spirit and have endurance. It allows us to be optimistic and self-accepting, releasing guilt and finding forgiveness. Traditional Herbalists considered Fir Needle warming and drying, toning the Chi.
