Spruce Up your Life – with Black Spruce

Black Spruce-300x287Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil comes from Young Living’s new Northern Lights Farm in British Columbia, Canada.

The Black Spruce is a tall tree. It can grow to be twenty-five meters tall.

Spruce trees are mythologically important plants among Southwestern tribes of the native americans, where they are symbols of the sky and directional guardians of the north. According to Hopi myth, the spruce tree was once a medicine man, Salavi, who transformed himself into a tree. For this reason, spruce trees are considered particularly sacred to the Hopis, who use spruce boughs to adorn kachina dancers.

Among northern tribes, spruce trees (like other evergreens) are associated with peace and protection. Spruce is a particular symbol of good luck to the Salish tribes, and spruce roots are used as fiber for weaving basketry regalia by many Northwest Coast tribes. Northern Algonquian tribes used to bundle spruce and fir needles into sachets or herbal pillows to protect against illness.
