Green Valley Aromatherapy’s black spruce hydrosol is produced in Quebec and is certified organic.
“The head note is air in a winter forest: cool, dry, and redolent with complex evergreen odors and frost. This is quickly taken over by a wet, slightly musty resin aroma both akin to and quite different from the remarkable odor of the oil or tree.”
Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy
According to Suzanne Catty, Black Spruce hydrosol is a perfect choice for the adrenal glands. Its use can regenerate the adrenals and supports thymus activity. This can boost the immune system and lead to a sense of well-being.
As a cold compress it can be used for pain relief and to help with inflammation of sore joints, muscles and sprains. If you suffer from carpal tunnel or repetitive strain injury, black spruce hydrosol can help alleviate your symptoms. Apply the cold hydrosol to a cloth on the affected area to feel relief.
As an interesting note this hydrosol is also said to “spruce up the bust-line, adding visibly and not insignificantly to both the size and the tone of the breast tissue”.
You can use black spruce hydrosol in pet care, as a spray for ticks and fleas or to care for your pets coat. Animals seem to like the scent. Black spruce hydrosol is popular with men as an aftershave and as daily care for high stress. Just splash on the face after shaving to tone your skin. It can also be used as a restorative body spray.
