4 Ways I Use Siberian Fir Oil for Health

Siberian fir essential oil has a refreshing, woody scent that is known for its calming and relaxing properties. It can also be very soothing to the skin, making it an ideal essential oil to add to a comforting massage. When diffused, it can help promote feelings of easy breathing, while calming the emotions and providing a grounding effect.

Native to both Russia and Canada, the Siberian fir tree is a tall evergreen conifer. To create this refreshing and calming essential oil, harvesters collect the needles and twigs. Both components are then steam distilled.

It is used in some familiar doTERRA blends like the Purify Cleansing Blend, where it is used to purify the air and protect against environmental threats.

And I love the scent because it reminds me of the Christmas season. 

Chemical Components

The following are some chemical components of Siberian fir essential oil:

  • Bornyl acetate – affects the pigment of the skin. Also often used for cleaning agents, for both air and surfaces
  • Camphene – has therapeutic benefits, including reduces symptoms of respiratory conditions
  • Alpa-pinene – helps protect the brain and eases anxiety
  • Delta-3-carene – linked to feelings of stress because it interacts with neurotransmitters

Health Benefits of Siberian Fir Oil


1. Supports Respiratory Health

Because of its high concentration of camphene, Siberian fir helps ease throat soreness and helps open the airways. This allows you to breathe easily. 

To use: inhale it directly from the bottle to help promote feelings of clear, healthy breathing.

2. Reduces Stress

Known for its calming and relaxing effects, this is a great oil to diffuse after a long day. Both the alpha-pinene and delta-3-carene interact with neurotransmitters, which help support the brain. 

To use: diffuse a few drops in your favorite diffuser.

3. Improves Skin

Daily topical application of essential oils high in bornyl acetate may actually help lighten skin tone. This makes Siberian fir essential in soothing your skin from minor skin irritations.

To use: combine 1-2 drops with fractionated coconut oil and apply to affected area. 

4. Relieves Pain

Often used during massage, Siberian fir has properties that can help decrease inflammation and ease muscle pain. 

To use: massage a few drops into your skin for soothing comfort after strenuous activity.
