About Fir Needle - Fir needle oil is essential oil extracted from the young branches and needles of the silver fir. From the earliest times the silver fir is thought by people as a forest healer and it was frequently used for healing of particular diseases. Fir needle oil was so popular due to its various useful properties. It is an excellent antiseptic with relieving effect, it is a tonic and a good cough suppressant; it stimulates functioning of adrenal glands and improves blood supply as well. Fir needle has mainly been used for respiratory complaints such as coughs and bronchitis, and as a disinfectant. Silver fir was the first species used for the Christmas tree, but has since been replaced by Douglas and Noble firs.

The Purity, Quality & Origins of Nature's Alchemy's 100% Pure Essential Oils
Nature's Alchemy requires their essential oil suppliers to verify their testing methods and supply complete quality analysis on each oil. Two of the standards used in identifying and certifying essential oils are the C.A.S. Number and the Specific Gravity of an oil. The chart on the back panel shows both for each essential oil.
The C.A.S. Number is an international Chemical Abstract Services number which is assigned to all essential oils. Each number identifies the essential oil of a specific plant which corresponds to the botanical name listed.
The Specific Gravity of an essential oil is a measurement of the weight ratio of each oil to water, which has a specific gravity of 1.0. This measurement is one of the main criteria used in verifying the purity of an essential oil.
Nature's Alchemy also require two additional pieces of documentation for individual oils from our suppliers:
Certificates of Analysis document the physical analysis of each batch of essential oil they purchase.
Gas Chromatograph Scans verify the chemical constituents of the essential oils and are so sensitive they can detect the presence of solvents if they have been used in the extraction process. This assures us of the high purity of the oils they purchase.
About Nature's Alchemy
Since time began, scents have been used to enhance, soothe or excite the spirits. What is more evocative than a drift of rose petals on the breeze, or the bracing freshness of piney woods? Chamomile can conjure up tea, home and comfort, while basil can evoke greenness, freshness and spring. How can you experience these and a host of other scents any time of year, simply by opening a bottle? With Nature’s Alchemy Essential Oils, a complete line of pure, naturally distilled botanical essential oils.
For centuries, botanical essential oils–highly concentrated, aromatic oils found in herbs, flowers and trees–have been used to anoint the body, ease the sting of a wound, assure a sound sleep, or turn a simple bath into a rejuvenating or relaxing experience. These feather-light, non-greasy oils can be dissolved in alcohol or mixed with other pure vegetable oils to become a unique part of our personal care regimen.
From religious ceremonies to beauty rituals, essential oils were an integral part of everyday life for our ancestors. The medieval Persian physician Avicenna developed the distillation techniques for extracting these delicate, readily evaporating oils from plants.
Extracting these oils (a very small part of the entire plant) is a painstaking, meticulous process. Avicenna’s discoveries have stood the test of time; the finest quality oils are still distilled using natural methods. For Nature’s Alchemy, they are committed to using only steam-distillation or cold-pressing. Our high-quality oils are scientifically tested for purity and contain no chemical solvents, added alcohol or other extenders.
The experts at Nature’s Alchemy delight in seeking out the rarest desert plants or most exotic tropic foliage to create a rich variety of essential oils. So indulge in a perfumed lotion, try a scented oil massage, or rejuvenate with a refreshing bath. Your mind, body and spirit will thank you.
