Oil Spotlight November: Idaho Blue Spruce

Each month we focus on using an oil every day to help us in accomplishing our goals. Join us in choosing a method of application and simply getting this oil on and around you every day in November! My goal is to use up an entire bottle for my personal use!

Idaho Blue Spruce is great for bringing that Winter Christmas feeling into your home. No matter what the weather is where you live, who doesn't love the smell and feeling of a winter wonderland.

IDAHO BLUE SPRUCE AT A GLANCE

BACKGROUND Considered a sacred tree by Native American tribes in the Northwest, it was used traditionally for smudging and purification rites. Spruce leaves, bark, and gum have been used historically by Native Americans for many things - spiritual ceremonies, physical health, poultices, digestive needs, immune support, and more. The oil is steam distilled from the wood, bark, and needles of the Picea pungens tree, an evergreen species native to the central Rocky Mountains. It is produced at the Young Living Highland Flats Tree Farm and Distillery in Naples, Idaho.

KEY CONSTITUENTS Constituents are naturally occurring compounds in plants (and therefore essential oils) that give them specific health-supporting properties

  • Alpha-pinene: a powerful antioxidant, some studies have shown alpha-pinene to support the body through inflammation and to help calm the mind
  • Limonene: known for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-stress support, this is a powerful constituent with many health benefits
  • Camphene: some studies may show that this constituent supports cardiovascular health, may help reduce pain and inflammation, support the body’s defences to fungal infections

Idaho Blue Spruce is an excellent oil for the guys as it helps balance and support hormone levels, especially testosterone. Because of its constituents Idaho Blue Spruce may help optimise both testosterone and growth hormone levels. Women can also use Idaho Blue Spruce for healthy testosterone as well!

Blue Spruce Essential Oil has many health benefits, including boosting Testosterone production. Dr. Dan Purser conducted a trial which had the males subjects ingest 8 drops of Blue Spruce Essential Oil within a capsule once daily. The subjects showed an increase of 30% in Testosterone levels after only two weeks, & some subjects showed up to 100% increased levels after 4 weeks. The subjects reported increased physical & mental performance in line with their new higher testosterone levels a year later. - Source
