SPRUCE PITCH // all-purpose balm
resin of picea sitchensis - picea engelmannii - picea glauca
Spruce resin is pure winter medicine. It has the rich and sensual fragrance of a deep montane forest in March. It is during winter that this medicine works its best magic: when the world turns grey and the days are short, this balm's boreal aromatics can help relieve anxiety + tension and lift the spirits in an instant. It's like forest bathing in a jar. Beyond the aromatherapeutics, it is also antimicrobial + antifungal, and a lovely warming oil that stimulates surface blood flow to tired muscles. Traditionally it has been used as a multipurpose balm: as a chest rub during colds, and to soothe achy muscles, winter dry + cracked hands and feet, and skin abrasions.
